(Video) The Truth Behind The Malibu Underwater 'Alien Base'
A little more than 6 miles off the coast of Point Dume in Malibu, California, an unusual-looking structure sits on the sea bed floor. Based on images obtained onGoogle Earth, the oval-shaped object has a huge flat top and what appear to be pillars or columns that seem to reveal the entrance to a darker, inner place.
The anomaly -- for the moment, we'll call it that -- is approximately 2,000 feet below the surface of the water, measuring nearly 3 miles wide. What exactly is this thing?
According to the website of a California-based radio program, "Fade to Black," this may be "the Holy Grail of UFO/USO [unidentified submerged objects]" that researchers have been looking for over the last 40 years.

Jimmy Church, who hosts "Fade to Black" on the Dark Matter Radio Network, told The Huffington Post one of his listeners -- someone named Maxwell -- contacted him last month with a Google Earth image showing something odd, underwater off the coast of Malibu. Church then asked graphic designer Dale Romero to capture as many angled images of the anomaly as he could.
"I needed him to find a way to get it under and above the water," Church said. "My first impression was that it was Greek, it looked artificial and didn't look natural.
"When you're looking at it from above, it's a nearly perfect oval shape," Church continued. "In the natural surroundings, nothing is symmetrical. Everything is eroded and covered in rocks and sloping and peaking, and right here, for 2 miles, it is a perfect oval with a black separation or outline to it.
"It just stands out that it has to be some type of roof. It's not unlike a domed stadium or a covered indoor race track or an Olympic arena -- it's got that feel to it. It looks like a perfect oval manmade structure sitting on a construction site."
Using the Google Earth coordinates -- which are, by the way, 34° 1’23.31″N 118° 59’45.64″W -- Church and Romero came up with a series of images, starting from due south, looking north, all the way around and ending up at due north, looking back south.
