Mysterious carved discs found in Russia

Oh boy. I hit another jackpot in my writing research.

Check this out — More than a dozen stone disks were found in the Volgograd region of Russia. What makes them so unusual, you ask? Well, I’ll tell you.

It seems the team that found these disks claim they contain tungsten, a highly dense metal that is used in military technology. Why they’re there, nobody knows. What they’re used for, nobody knows.

What’s even more unusual? One of the disks measures almost 13 feet long, when nearly all of the others only measure in around 3 feet. And one of them is shaped just like a UFO.

But wait. There’s more to the story. Earlier this year, another disk-shaped object was found in another area of Russia by a coal mining company. It was discovered over 130 feet underground, which, archaeologists say, suggests it’s quite old. It’s perfectly circular, and most likely manmade.

What’s it doing down there? And how did it get there?

Folks who believe in OOParts (out of place artifacts) say the disks don’t come from our planet. Others who are pursuing a more rational approach say the disks need to be researched further, and could have been Earth-made and carved out by erosion.

What do you think? There are truly some strange things to be found out there…
