Huge Lake in Chile Disappears Overnight
In May 2007, a huge lake in Chile literally disappeared overnight. The only things left behind was a giant, 30 meter deep pit, icebergs, and dry soil!

While some are holding out tosee if there could be any scientific explanation about what happened, some media reports are trying to claim that the water was actually drained by UFO’s!  Is this just media sensationalism, or...
