Austrian Farmer Finds Underground Tunnel, Mysterious Metal Structure

The_mysterious_holeAn Austrian farmer went searching for his cat and found what many believe to be a UFO — what else would be buried at the bottom of a secret tunnel in the countryside? The Austrian Times reports:

Hundreds curious visitors, as well as geologists, archaeologists and UFO experts, are flocking to a field at Neuhofen im Innkreis after a mysterious, perfectly round hole appeared overnight, leading down to a metallic construction 25-foot underground. Franz Knoglinger, 47, discovered the hole while looking for his missing cat.

Archaeologists suggested the hole could have been left from an underground burial chamber. Locals speculated it might have been a bomb [from] the war. But alien watchers are speculating about a buried spacecraft. One man had even turned up with a sandwich board and the words “Beware – The Doorway to Hell”.

      You’re right, it is an oil well…

      When I think of digging for oil Austria doesn’t come to mind…

         She may have meant an oil storage tank.

    Gotta love it; there’s a hole in the ground, must be aliens.

    I would really like to see a follow up to this story. I bet it will just disappear though.

    It can’t be an Unidentified Flying Object if it’s underground.

    More like an Unidentified Buried Object.

    Yeah, it’s an old oil hole with a drill bit stuck at the bottom. It’s sad facts don’t circulate as quickly as UFO stories – this was cleared up days ago.

    It is a hole dug by an oil drill in the 1950’s and the bit broke off.

    • Kris Fehr

      Nope. Has to be aliens. Hole in ground = always aliens.

    They show keep a close watch on that cat for any unusual behavior.

    Bet they’re going to find where Elvis has been living since his ‘death’.

    Should I be concerned about Mole Men or Reptilians?

    “One man had even turned up with a sandwich board and the words “Beware – The Doorway to Hell”.”sooo  Rick Santorum was in Austria?

    Doorway to Hell?
    What really concerns me is the fact that Hell is only 25 feet below the surface!
