The uninhabited island of Minami-Tori-shima was found to disappear from satellite images back in 2015, with no solid explanation as to what happened to it.
Footage from the Science Channel shows the small, triangular island was completely fine in 2003.
But fast forward to 2015 and the island was nowhere to be seen with a patch of dark blue water filling the space where the island was located.
The video’s narrator explains: “The disappearance of an entire island can sometimes be the result of a cataclysmic volcanic event.”
But according to the Japan coast guard, the island was recorded as being 1.4m above sea level back in 1987.
Also, the island’s weather station is still transmitting data – which would not be possible if the island was underwater.
The narrator speculates: “Perhaps the island hasn’t vanished, just photographic evidence of it.
“Some believe a shadowy government agency has decided it should no longer exist on satellite images.”
The video has been viewed over 30,000 times since being uploaded last week, with many pointing to foul play as an explanation for the island’s disappearance.
One conspirator wrote: “It has an outer protective shield so that outsiders can’t see what’s going on inside.”
Another added: “Makes one wonder what else are they hiding.”
