There’s a hole near Riga

Riga – A hole in a frozen pond in northern Latvia achieved unexpected notoriety on Wednesday as rumours began circulating that it was created by an object falling from outer space.

“Weve been collecting information on the story all day, and well definitely report it in the morning,” Inguna Plume, editor of local newspaper Ziemellatvija, told reporters.

The “unusually large hole” appeared in the ice of a frozen pond near the northern Latvian village of Karki in early February, the Leta news agency wrote. Despite sub-zero temperatures, the hole
reportedly did not freeze over for two days.

Locals initially reported seeing “strange things” in the area. One girl said that she had seen “a small bright object with a silver ring around it”, while other witnesses reported seeing up to six symmetrical beams of light emerging from the pond.
