    looks like an antenna or radar dish frame.

    How about the one in Okinawa, Japan?

    That's the Yonaguni monument. It fascinates me, but my bet is that it's mostly or entirely natural. Nevertheless, I'd love to dive there someday.

    Another decent video on it is one that Monty Hall made recently.

    Oops, I didn't realize it is Yonaguni monument after you pointed it out.

    It is fascinating site to see. I do agree with you that it doesn't look like man made. Thanks for posting Monty Hall video of the site. I enjoyed watching it, but not sure if I would dive it, not much fish to see.

    Does anyone here dive with their tanks upside-down like in the Monty Hall video?

    There's at least one town underwater at Lake Mead. The one I saw was mostly foundations only. A few years ago when the drought was bad you could get there on an ATV. Now I believe it's covered again.

    Now that I think of it, there is supposed to be one in a lake near Banff National Park
