Some year ago, this mysterious island was founded by argentine film director Sergio Neuspillerm while scanning that area through the Google Maps for finding a location to shoot a documentary film.

The circle of floating Eye is about 118 meters in diameter, surrounded by a thin water channel. The circles formed by the water and the earth, are very perfect in shape that it is very hard to believe that the island is formed by nature. However, while Sergio Neuspillerm was studying about the island for getting more detail, the Argentinian film maker noticed that the island seemed to be turning on its own axis.

The producer and film maker Sergio Neuspillerm decided to go directly to that spot to observe this strange formation and try to find some explanations about how its made! He went to that location with two specialists along with him Richard Petroni, a civil engineer from New York, and tech expert Pablo Martinez. However, they observed that the area is extremely strange and the water of this floating eye island is incredibly clear and cold. But, still the mystery of how it is floating on water is unsolved.
