Visitors to this cosmic landscape named the round rocks ‘footballs of the Gods’.

Giant natural balls in the Franz Josef archipelago that leave scientists flummoxed.

The huge stone balls up to two metres in height are found on appropriately-named Champ island above the polar circle.

Perfectly spherical they are scattered all over this northern uninhabited outpost.

We reveal the latest pictures of this remarkable sight as the final of the FIFA World Cup 2018 is played 2,842 kilometres to the south in Russian capital Moscow.

From the time they were first seen, visitors to this cosmic landscape named the round rocks 'footballs of the Gods', and at first it is hard to believe that they are natural and not made by man, or possibly giants.

Yet the barren 374 km2 (144 sq miles) island was never inhabited and scientists are sure they are not artificial, even if they cannot agree how they were formed.

The huge stone balls up to two metres in height are found on appropriately-named Champ island above the polar circle.

Similar but smaller stone balls were found last year on Heiss island in the same archipelago.

Russian polar researcher Viktor Boyarsky said of the extraordinary phenomenon: 'The spheres are made of soft sand stone.

'You can see that many large balls fell apart into two big halves, and the largest stone on the island is breaking down year by year.'

Konstantin Zaikov, of the Arctic Federal University, said: 'They look man-made, but they are in fact stones that were formed thousands years ago by crystallisation and subsequent magnetisation of grains of sand onto the crystal.

'Sand grains harden and create a fairly dense spherical shape.'

We reveal the latest pictures of this remarkable sight as the final of the FIFA World Cup 2018 is played 2,842 kilometres to the south in Russian capital Moscow.

On Heiss island 'the spherulites look like round bullets or cannon balls. We found balls of different sizes, but none as big as at Champ island.'

Yet Austrian geologist Sepp Fridhubera claimed the rounded shapes of the rocks were formed underwater and they have an organic core in the centre.

As previous reports have noted every geologist seems to have their own theory.

Champ island is named after William S. Champ, a representative of American industrialist William Ziegler who funded a number of pioneering 19th century Arctic explorations.

Heiss is a Germanised version of the name Hayes. Isaac Israel Hayes, also American, was an Arctic explorer.

@Hervé

yes, of course; but if one has read the Michael Cremo/Richard Thompson 800+ page opus "Forbidden Archeaology" archeaologists found perfectly round, created metal balls in S. Africa with intricatly perfect outward applications (THAT perfect mother nature is not) that date back to over 4 BILLION(!) yrs. ago-

just goes to show us how we homo sapiens sapiens have been on this planet a helluva longer than we've been told to believe-

Sure, Larry... according to current geochronology, there wasn't much of a stable earth crust for humans to survive on, over 4 billion years ago :)

Even if not obvious, there really could be a common denominator, the movie industry carries many semi-secrets. Please, post if anything else comes to mind.

@Hervé

I believe even billions of yrs. ago there were at times stable earth crusts and not so stable earth crusts; we live on a very unstable planet, and always have-

but are any other planets out there different?

our universe is constantly in a state of change and for us humans to believe we're 'something special' and invincible (yawn) and couldn't be wiped out at a moment's notice is believing in the tooth fairy-

but let's hope the next catyclism won't happen in our life times-

They look a bit like the “kettles” at Kettle Point along Lake Huron.
See: https://kettlepoint.org/history-culture/

Here’s an explanation of how they were formed:

As I posted not too long ago, these ball things are supposedly all over South America and elsewhere. They are found on the very top of mountains, down in valleys and precipitously parked elsewhere. The subject frightens bush people who have obviously seen and know something we city dwellers do not.

Here is the mother load. These balls are the digested, ground up, compressed garbage remains of UFO's, living creatures or mechanical ones, and our Earth is their Toilet. Whatever compounds are squeezed under tons of pressure, there is no liquid left in them. They have been analyzed without a determination having been made because too many substances are squashed together, organic and inorganic. Stay away from these UFO's unless you wish to be devoured and flushed.
