The world ocean covers more than 70% of the Earth’s surface, contains 97% of its water, and is filled to the brim with mysteries. Bright red tides, sound anomalies, bizarre creatures lurking in the ocean’s depths. One of these enigmas stands out among the rest: are there indeed black holes in the Atlantic Ocean?
A black hole has such an enormous gravitational pull that once something gets pulled in, it doesn’t have any chance to escape. Even light can’t get out of a black hole. Ocean “black holes” seem to be as powerful as their space relatives. But what do they do?

– During a red tide, a gallon of seawater can contain millions of algae, which is extremely dangerous for birds, marine animals, and even us, people! Red algae can mess with breathing, and eating fish and shellfish caught in the red tide can lead to bad food poisoning!
– Milky Sea Phenomenon mostly happens in the Indian Ocean’s waters. Scientists haven’t agreed yet about the source of the enigmatic glow. The most popular idea, though, is that the ocean starts to gleam when countless glow-in-the-dark bacteria gather in one place.
– You’re more likely to see green flashes at sunset than at sunrise. They appear when the atmosphere bends sunlight, passing through it, and separates it in different colors, just like a prism splits the light into tiny rainbows.
– Frost smoke, sea smoke, steam fog – this phenomenon has many names. On a cold day, you can see the ocean literally smoking! It has nothing to do with fire though.
– The world’s biggest waterfall is actually underwater c (however confusing it may sound). The Denmark Strait Cataract – that’s the name of this mind-boggling phenomenon – lies beneath the Denmark Strait that separates Greenland and Denmark.
– For the first (and only) time, the Bloop was recorded in 1997. This minute-long, low-frequency sound was coming from the southern coast of Chile, and it was so deafeningly loud that underwater microphones as far as 3,000 miles away could hear it.
– Ocean eddies are massive whirlpools that are spinning against the main current. They usually swirl billions of tons of water, and most of them are larger than a city.
– Remember icicles hanging from your house’s roof gutter on a sunny winter day? Now, imagine the same icicle but with length measuring not in inches but in feet and made not from rainwater but from super-salty seawater called brine.
– For the first time, underwater crop circles were spotted in 1995 close to Japan’s southern coast. Imagine the researchers’ surprise when it turned out to be a male pufferfish! A male is swimming inside the circle digging valleys in the sand with its fins.
