There is an ancient city floating in the middle of the Pacific ocean and many experts believe it to be haunted. The strange city is almost inhabitable and has been named the Eighth Wonder of the World by European explorers.
You can find the abandoned city off the main island of Ponhpei in Micronesia. It is called "Nan Madol" which translates to "the space between". It sits about 1,600 miles from Australia and 2,500 miles from Los Angeles. This leaves researchers wondering why someone would build a city so far from any type of civilization.
Dr Karen Bellinger says: "As amazing as this site appears from satellite imagery, coming down to ground level is even more astounding. There are walls which are 25 feet tall and 17 feet thick."
The natives of Ponphei refuse to go near the island, stating that the island is haunted. They also refer to it as the "ghost city". The few locals willing to take tourists there will only do so in the day, because they claim to have seen mysterious, glowing orbs around the site at night.
Check out the video from The Science Channels "What On Earth?" where the island was featured:
