A Nasa satellite has provided jaw-dropping pictures of a huge 'storm' brewing under the sea.

The swirling mass of water - which measures a whopping 93 miles wide - has been spotted off the coast of South Africa by the Terra satellite on December 26.

But there's no need to alert international shipping, or worry about the poor fish that might find themselves in an endless washing cycle - the body of water poses no threat.

Could this become our giant blue spot as opposed to the giant red spot on Jupiter? Is that such a stretch? Who's to say that's not where the giant red spot came from, some smarter than thou scientists thinking to much, and creating a H.A.R.R.P. on that planet also.

Worst case scenario is they've invented some ocean manipulating machine

Dunno, as they say extremely rare. Never heard about it before this post.

I wonder if they did radar images too?  an upwale of less dense ocean water?

it looks like some kind of vortex, though

Amazing. Maybe the tilt of the axis is creating some effects in the oceans in 2012~
