South Pacific Sandy Island 'proven not to exist'

 

OK CMJ, what've you done with this island?

 

A South Pacific island, shown on marine charts and world maps as well as on Google Earth and Google Maps, does not exist, Australian scientists say.

The supposedly sizeable strip of land, named Sandy Island on Google maps, was positioned midway between Australia and French-governed New Caledonia.

But when scientists from the University of Sydney went to the area, they found only the blue ocean of the Coral Sea.

Ah! we are all looking for Brigadoon. It appears once every 100 years.

 

 

Two Americans on a hunting trip in Scotland become lost. They encounter a small village, not on the map, called Brigadoon, in which people harbor a mysterious secret, and behave as if they were still living two hundred years in the past. (Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer

 

If a solar flares hits, we may all find ourselves living as if 200 years ago
