A deputy of the regional parliament Mikhail Lapsui visited the area by helicopter:
Its diameter is about 15 meters. There is also ground outside, as if it was thrown as a result of an underground explosion. According to local residents, the hole formed on 27 September 2013. Observers give several versions. According to the first, initially at the place was smoking, and then there was a bright flash. In the second version, a celestial body fell there.
Marina Leibman, Chief Scientist of the Earth Cryosphere Institute said:
I have heard about the second funnel on Yamal, in Taz district, and saw the pictures. Undoubtedly, we need to study all such formations. It is necessary to be able to predict their occurrence. Each new funnel provides additional information for scientists.
Crater of Nosok
It is not like this is the work of men, but also doesn't look like natural formation.
