Did We Discover a Large Undersea Alien Base in the South-East of Puerto Rico?

The archipelago of Puerto Rico, in the Caribbean Greater Antilles, is a land full of riddles and surprises that for many decades has been a hot spot of UFO / extraterrestrial
activity. This activity has been connected, in many ocassions, with the sea sorrounding our territory. Now, we have made a startling finding which may, perhaps, shed more light on this enigma.

A year ago we discovered mysterious anomalous structures which lie on the seafloor in the south and east of Puerto Rico, which extend from a point in the south of the city of Ponce to another point in the south of the island-municipality of Vieques, in the east. 

We discovered them while studying the seabed around the island using NOAA images derived from that agency's studies by means of satellite imaging and sonar bathymetry, etc. The structures are much too geometrical in shape, and that detail makes us think they are complex artificial structures, and not the product of casual natural geological formations. 

The first anomalous structure consists of an extremely large rectangular structure which shows at its left end what appears to be an entrance into the seafloor. The structure and its 'entrance' are geometrically-shaped too, and again, they seem to be of an artificial origin.  

But also, starting right out from the top left of that structure there is what seems to be huge roads or tunnels which connect to the continental shelf in the south of the city of Ponce, in southern Puerto Rico. 

'Coincidentally', back in the late 1980s many citizens of the city of Ponce pleaded the media to ask the local and state authorities to investigate something that worried them: at night loud noises and loud buzzing sounds were being felt. It was as if someone was drilling or boring underground with some powerful machines. They also reported hearing great noises like those of large falling rocks which tumbled underground. 

For several days the locals and other curious citizens from nearby towns made night vigils, but eventually the media stopped covering the issue and it was silenced. Subsequently the noises and vibrations stopped and the mystery was forgotten. 

Now, after discovering the submerged roads or tunnels that connect with the continental shelf in the south of the city of Ponce, I think on the possibility that the two things are related. Did the builders of the structures on the seabed south and southeast of Puerto Rico also built an underground access to the city of Ponce? Maybe another underground facility there?

and other islands of the Caribbean and the continental 
shelf of the region. 
The largest anomalous structures are observable beneath 
the islands of Puerto Rico and Vieques, and almost reaching 
to the island of St. Croix. 

First there are the large rectangular-shaped structure and the road-like or tunnel-like structures that connects it with the continental shelf south of the city of Ponce.

Secondly, there is a large quadrangular-shaped complex of structures formed by other five rectangular-shaped structures, and right in the middle, between the islands and the anomalies is a deep undersea canyon known to locals 
as the 'South Depth'.

Below: visual enlargements of the anomalous structures.
Image below: A cropped section of the image submitted to the Photoshop digital filter shows more clearly the 'entrance' and the roads-like or tunnels-like structures.

The images show a vast undersea-underground set of structures that is almost the same size of the main island of Puerto Rico (105 miles wide and 40 miles large), a tremendous amount of territory!. Another thing to consider is that the depth at which these structures are is one of thousands of feet underwater, and they are subjected to a very strong pressure in dark abyssal depths. 

A Secret US base, Prediluvian Buildings or a Hidden Extraterrestrial Base? 

Now, who built them down there, and who may be using them?
It could be speculated that form the structures are part of a secret base of the United States Navy, which until recently held the Roosevelt Roads Naval Station in Ceiba, in east of the island.

At official level, the US Navy alleges they closed that base in year 2000, but who can assure us that that agency did not build gigantic secret facilities and stayed, in hiding, in our territory, but in deep sea? 

Some might argue this, but the huge dimensions of the structures, and the depth of several thousand feet at which they are make it difficult for it to be human beings who inhabit and work in them, as they could not build this type of huge complex structures at such depths, for this would require some sort of superior technology that we humans do not have at this moment. The depth of approximately 15,928 feet is one in which it is difficult for humans to live and work at. 

Another possibility is that the vast complex of underground / underwater structures located in the south-east of Puerto Rico is extremely old and was built prior to modern humans living in this area. 

Its origin could be dated to a period during or before the last ice age, as huge ice sheets covered much of the Earth in those days, and the sea level worldwide was much lower than it is today. 
As a matter of fact, it is known that for some time the islands of the Greater Antilles were one single mass of land that wa above the sea level of that past era. Perhaps a highly developed protohistoric civilization now dissapeared from the face of Earth could be responsible for the construction of these surprising structures. 

But there is another possible explanation: what if the structures were not the product of human technology, nor the product of an antediluvian disappeared human civilization, but the product of a civilization of aliens who have lived in this area for a long time, hiding from humanity?

The use of highly advanced alien technology surely would allow advanced aliens to live and work in these dark depths, and under the conditions of high pressures experienced there. 
This possibility can not be excluded, as there is voluminous photographic evidence and testimony and several hundred of witnesses (pilots, fishermen, and residents of coastal areas all around Puerto Rico, who testify about frequent sightings of UFOs sumerging into the sea along the coastline, or flying out from the water. 

As for the specific case of the south-eastern sea region, there is a significant evidence of this (which we published in our book 'El Yunque: Gateway to Other Worlds') which is shown in an official NASA document, a video filmed by the astronauts crew of the space shuttle mission STS-80, when they filmed  a UFO that flew out from the sea at a point located south-east of the island-municipality of Vieques, after which it soared out into space at a speed of 500 miles per second. After approaching the space shuttle the UFO suddenly swerved to the left and quickly disappeared into deep space. 

The specialist in digital imaging analysis, and consultant to NASA, Mark Carlotto, studied this video's data, the specific day and time and azimuth position the STS-80 shuttle was at when taking the views, and undoubtedly confirmed that the UFO rose out to space precisely from a point at sea south of the island of Vieques, precisely at the point in which lies one of the structural anomalies we discovered, the large quadrangular-shaped structure.

The 'South Depth' 

But there is more data linking this undersea canyon with the mystery of this whole matter. 
When we were doing research for our book 'Vieques: Bombing Range of the Third Kind', in which we inform about UFO / alien activity in the island-municipality of Vieques and an apparent secret US Navy contact program with aliens, we interviewed many leaders of the struggle against the US Navy's presence in that island. 

One of those leaders was Carlos Ventura, who amongst many other things told us about something very strange that happened on a couple of occasions in the aforementioned deep submarine canyon south of Vieques, which Vieques fishermen call "The South Depth".

 "I used to go fishing to that area - he said -, which is very deep, because it falls thousands of feet deep underwater platform of Vieques, and is also one of the best fishing sites we have. There's a large amount of sea life there.

fisherman Carlos Ventura.

"On several occasions I was on my boat, launching fishing box nets, and used a sonar equipment I have in the boat to see how deep was the seafloor. 

"The sonar images indicated a depth of 2.330 feet, and I threw the box nets tied to a rope... and nothing happened... they continued to fall to 2,300 feet deep and did not touch bottom! But I had fished there before, and I knew that at that location there was a seafloor. 

"It was as if there was no bottom, but the sonar indicated that there was, indeed, an area below, a bottom. So I gave more rope to the box nets and reached about 3,300 feet. And there still was no bottom! 

"I thought there might be a hole in the bottom's surface, perhaps a cave or something, and the box nets fell into it. But that was not the case, because the sonar images indicated there was a surface down there, something extensive and solid down there. It all was so strange... It intrigued me. 

"To confirm everything again, I used the sonar and it showed the image of an apparent bottom at 2,300 feet deep, but beneath that surface there seemed to be another empty space, and then, the image of another bottom or surface! It was something really weird, unusual. 

"There was no explanation to what was happening. I thought about the possibility that the weird sonar's images were due to the presence of a US Navy submarine vessel down there, but I know how my sonar works, and the images would have been very different. I recognize when the equipment registers a submarine, and they were not images of a fish school either, or a submarine or anything else. I still have no explanation for what happened that day." 

Ventura also revealed that sometimes he and his fellow fishermen heard the muffled sound of "apparent explosions" and "funny noises" which seemed to come from under the seafloor. 

We had received similar reports before from fishermen of the municipalities of Ceiba and Naguabo (also in the east of Puerto Rico island), especially from those who practiced deep-fishing. 

Now, to what do those explosions and strange sounds under the seafloor responded to, geological / telluric natural activity, or to some underground work being done by 'someone' ? 
Maybe by aliens who may be living in the anomalous structures located in the depth? 

The 'South Depth' and the UFO Presence 

Mr. Alicio Ayala, another fisherman resident in the sector of Esperanza, in Vieques, made similar statements about the mysterious 'South Depth', but added a number of UFO sightings he and his fellow fishermen had observed in that zone. 
The fisherman had experienced several encounters with anomalous flying objects while fishing offshore in the early morning hours. Here is what he said about it. 

"I am 70 years old, and I have fished for over 50 years - he said-, and I've seen strange, weird things happen in that area, the South Depth. 

"For example, one morning, still dark and at about 5:00 a.m., suddenly the sky became full of a bright light that was coming from a strange object had appeared suddenly, paced the boat amd then moved to the side, made an angle turn down slowly towards the sea ​​and then disappeared beneath the water."  

"It was engulfed in a bright light of yellow-orange hue, and had a round shape, and was quite large. It was like watching the sun set on the sea, but that did not happen down away at the horizon, but close to us, and it was at five in the morning. It was impossible for it to be the sun setting!" 

"It was not a meteor or a shooting star either, because meteors, shooting stars fall into the sea at speed, because they are being attracted by Earth's gravity, and that object moved slowly across the sky in a horizontal fashion, and then made a curve and went down to the sea very slowly and in a controlled fashion, as if guided by someone." 

He added: "... as it was sinking in the water you could still see the glow of its light, until it disappeared. I remained waiting to see if it came back out, but it did not. This was south of Vieques, in the zone of the South Depth, looking in the direction of the tip of the town of Maunabo, in the main island, where the lighthouse of Maunabo is located at, over there. 

"Many others say they have seen exactly the same things out there, and also in the area close to the El Yunque, in the Big Island (by this he means Puerto Rico) ." 

Also Humanoids 

But this is not all that happens in the south of the island of Vieques. In the southern coastline of that island many residents have encountered humanoid creatures of  the 'Grays' type, which seem to have amphibious characteristics. The creatures come out from the sea and run into the island's lagoons, and after a while return and go back into the sea. 

Below: humanoids beings come out from the sea 
and the lagoons of Vieques.

In photo below: Mr. Aurelio "Yeyo 'Rosa, fisherman 
and a former security guard for the US Navy in Vieques, 
had several encounters with these creatures in the US Navy bases and in the lagoons of the island-municipality.

Is it a coincidence that all these occurrences take place in the same area where we discovered the mysterious giant structures in the seafloor south of the island? We do not think so, we can't rule out the possibility that the sonar system in Carlos Ventura's fishing boat accidentally registered some kind of enormous gate or dimensional portal was being opened in the seafloor of that area. 

Image below: Is there a previously hidden alien base 
in the undersea anomalous structures located in the 
south of Puerto Rico?

Perhaps an opening at the hypotethical alien base or facility located in the anomalous structures we have discovered submerged in that same area? 

As a matter of fact, the quadrangular-shaped structure, as you can see in the images reproduced in this article, is located exactly to the south of the island-municipality of Vieques. 

We will continue reporting on this interesting puzzle.
