The mystery of campo del cielo
At all times, people believed that the Earth is a satellite - the Moon only recently emerged evidence that the Moon is not the only natural satellite of our planet in the myths of antiquity could find information about the fall of the Earth of a cosmic body Some researchers see in this event the answer to the mystery the legendary Atlantis

In the north of Argentina, located district Campo del Cielo - "Heaven field" This word refers to ancient Indian legend, which tells about how at this very place fell from the sky mysterious fireball old chronicles say that Spanish conquistadors found on Kampo- del Cielo a huge piece of iron, which was used for the manufacture of swords and spears

In 1576, the Spaniard Erman Mexico de Miraval among the marshy lowlands of the Gran Chaco, five hundred miles north of Santa Fe, stumbled upon a large iron block Thereafter enterprising Spaniard has four superintending a lump of iron and beat on her small fragments for different needs The fifth and last expedition to the iron lump organized Don Rubin de Celis in 1783. He estimated the mass of the object about fifteen tons of detailed description of this strange lumps are not preserved, and more it has not been seen, although attempts to find her have been many times, and still dreams find the mysterious object excites the imagination of adventurers

In 1803, in the neighborhood of Campo del Cielo it was accidentally discovered meteorite weighing about a ton largest fragment weighing about 635 kilograms in 1813 was taken to Buenos Aires, and later it was purchased by an Englishman Sir Woodbine Derish and presented to the British Museum This lump of cosmic iron still rests on a pedestal in front of the museum portion of its surface specially polished so that you can see the metal structure of the so-called "figures Vidmanshtettena" suggestive of an extraterrestrial origin of the object remaining fragments of the meteorite lost

Meanwhile, in the neighborhood of Campo del Cielo still continue to find meteorites strange iron pieces weighing a few kilograms up to many tons largest weighed 33.4 tons It was found in 1980 near the town Gancedo American researcher Robert meteorites Haq would like to purchase this fragment, to take him to the United States, but the Argentine government opposed the to date, this meteorite is the second largest among all the meteorites found on Earth - after the so-called "Hoba meteorite", weighing about 60 tons

The unusually large number of meteorites found on a relatively small area, indicates that thousands of years ago on Earth poured a "meteor rain" Evidence of this, besides finds themselves iron bodies, a large number of craters near the Campo del Cielo " meteorite field "has the shape of an ellipse elongated along at 17 kilometers and 6 kilometers across the largest crater is the Laguna Negra has a diameter of 115 meters and depth - over two meters

Legends and finds Campo del Cielo in 1961, became interested in American scientist from Columbia University have Cassidy As a result, research has taken a large number of small metallic meteorites were found, the so-called geksaderitov consisting essentially of chemically pure iron This scientist drew attention to the strange fact usually in the explosion of a large meteorite in the atmosphere of its debris falling to Earth, scattering ellipse with a maximum diameter of about 1600 meters on a Campo del Cielo is the length of the diameter of 17 kilometers'

The published preliminary findings Cassidy studies caused a sensation immediately to him were hundreds of volunteers As a result of their search for new fragments of meteoritic iron were detected even at a distance of 75 kilometers from the "Heavenly Fields" '

The final conclusion reached by the expedition Cassidy, was: a huge meteorite fell to Earth with no solar orbits. Before the fall of the celestial body is drawn in an elliptical Earth orbit, gradually approaching the Earth. That is, over time the body is the second natural satellite of the Earth!

According to this hypothesis, "Luna 2" is gradually approaching the Earth by the force of Earth's gravity, not yet crossed the so-called "Roche limit" and broke into pieces. These fragments are still some time treated in Earth orbit and then entered the atmosphere and in turn began to fall on the Earth's surface. Through the efforts of Cassidy geksaderity were found even at a distance of thousands of kilometers to the west of the Campo del Cielo, in Chile.

When there was this cosmic catastrophe? Discovered in her place a charred tree stump - the result of a giant fire caused by a meteorite bombardment - has an age of about 5800 years.

... Even some six or seven thousand years ago, in the night sky above the Earth could see two of the Moon. And then ... Then, probably it happened is the same catastrophe, which tell myths and legends of many peoples of the world: "The stars fell from the sky, crossing out the sky train fire, earth rumbled, shook and cracked, shaken by tremors. The world was collapsing. " The consequences of this catastrophe become offset the Earth's axis by 30 degrees, tectonic shifts and possibly flooding of large areas of land. And maybe that's the plain of Campo del Cielo hidden answer to the mystery of Atlantis?
