Located on the Diquis Delta and on Isla del Caño in Costa Rica, there is a variety of over 300 man-made stone spheres, (known as petrospheres). The spheres were discovered in the 1930’s as the site was being cleared for banana plantations.

She named this strange occurrence the Mandela Effect since there are many other cases of alternative memories that have been recorded among people from all over the world.

In 2013, a massive hurricane was discovered on Saturn by a NASA spacecraft circling the planet. The storm’s eye was about 2,000 km (1,250 mi) across with cloud speeds as fast as 530 km/h (330 mph). On Earth, warm oceans power hurricanes, but there are no oceans on Saturn, which makes the creation of such a gigantic storm difficult to explain.
