The recent solar eclipse had conspiracy theorists abuzz with fears that the apocalypse was upon us.

But the reality may actually be more terrifying.

And now sensors in the South Atlantic Ocean detected one seemingly cataclysmic event “experts” are desperate to explain away.

People react to the total eclipse

Last week, we had an eclipse that traversed the eastern half of the United States. 

Numerous states even went so far as to declare a state of emergency as hundreds of thousands of revelers descended on small towns along the path to catch a glimpse of the event. 

And as usual, social media users lost their minds.

Concerns of local grids being overwhelmed turned into rumors of a nationwide blackout. 

Cell tower congestion turned into theories that communication networks would crash. 

And reports that the European Organization for Nuclear Research, also known as CERN, was scheduled to fire up their Large Hadron Collider sparked conversation around a portal being opened to another dimension.

But instead, people were simply awestruck by an infinite stream of videos and pictures of the eclipse. 

Then, just when everyone thought it was all over, something happened just north of Antarctica that sent many over the edge.

“80 ft + Waves in Antarctica caused by the Eclipse”

Popular weather-mapping service Ventusky picked up on some strange wave activity that started just north of the Antarctic continent.

Sensors in the southern Atlantic Ocean indicated that waves taller than a five-story building developed rapidly and the area of disturbance quickly moved northward toward the west coast of Africa. 

And Antarctica began trending on social media.

People began warning of “80 ft+ Waves in Antarctica caused by the Eclipse” that were supposedly heading straight to the northern Atlantic with expected impact on April 17. 

The rumors began circulating again with people expecting an alien invasion from the ocean or the rise of a prehistoric civilization. 

Doomsday maps began circulating online and people began preparing for the worst yet again. 

But not everyone was fooled, and eventually, Ventusky posted an update from their official X account to try to assuage concerns.

“I don’t believe any of them. . .”

“Despite numerous reports of UFOs or Atlanteans launching from the ocean, yesterday’s image of giant waves near Africa was due to a model error,” Ventusky wrote in a widely shared post. 

The company said that they had since “resolved it.” and assessed that the forecast didn’t indicate any monstrous waves. 

Ventusky explained that they receive “huge amounts of data from ships and buoys throughout the ocean,” and that sometimes “problems can occur in such a large database.” 

But the damage had already been done, and some social media users weren’t pleased with the explanation.

“I don’t believe any of them. I can not possibly understand how this could be an error. It moves, it changes shape. It shows disruption in the water from multiple reporting sources. Nope…Not buying their crap. Something is up and they are hiding it,” wrote one user.

Others began to share the Ventusky post to debunk internet skeptics. 

And the expected path of the waves eventually disappeared from the platform and the noise around the event dissipated.
