Mysterious Purple Orb Spotted On Ocean Floor

A scientist says he is “stumped” after a purple orb is spotted on the floor of the Pacific by a remote-controlled rover.


A mysterious purple orb spotted on the sea bed during a live-streamed ocean exploration temporarily stumped scientists.

The colourful orb was seen near the Channel Islands of California by the Exploration Vessel Nautilus, a scientific expedition equipped with a live broadcasting studio.

The apparently otherwordly lifeform was spotted in a rocky crevasse by a remote-controlled rover, and scientists scratched their heads for several minutes during the live broadcast, trying to explain what viewers could see.

One said: “What is that? I actually have no idea.”
