Wedged between the bustling city of Buenos Aires and the quiet town of Campana is the small and mystic islet known as El Ojo, or Eye Island. Discovered by an Argentine filmmaker, Sergio Neuspiller, this islet isn’t just notable for its clean circular form but for its endless rotation on its own axis. Local legends as well as satellite images from Google Earth confirm that El Ojo has been in motion since 2003. It has been there for over 20 years. Hidden in the unique ecosystem of Parque Nacional Ciervo de los Pantanos, this rotating island continues to puzzle both locals and scientists.

How Does It Rotate on Its Own Axis?

Sergio Neuspiller was the first to notice this island. When he returned to review the island had changed position. There are many theories surrounding why and how it spins. Some scientists assume that large underground wells cause water streams that are capable of pushing the island. This also leads to its erosion and aids its rotation. However, this remains a theory. The lack of sufficient funds halted efforts to investigate further.

Some people also say that its rotation is linked with paranormal or extraterrestrial activity. However, none of them have been proven and remain theories of the public. The island lies just an hour from Buenos Aires and adventurers can visit this marvel.
