Solved Mystery

In a remote location in Death Valley, California, there is a dried up lake called the Racetrack Playa where several heavy rocks seem to move across the lake by themselves. People have blamed space aliens and pranksters, but no one has ever seen the rocks move to confirm exactly what is moving them, or causing them to “sail”, so to speak.

In 2006, a scientist by the name of Ralph Lorenz started studying the rocks, and came to the conclusion that when temperatures drop in Death Valley, enough water and ice forms under the rocks to cause them to “float” across the river, leaving a trail of mud behind them.
