    24" to 30" Mystery sphere with access port(?) on the end.

    I was at a new permission (described in this link New Permission-Bizzarre American Arms type of Day) on Sunday at a newer development when I came across an area about 5' feet inside the privacy wall (about 20'-25' from a neighbors home outside the development) and littered with debris from a home demolition.

    I got a nice signal (low to mid 80's if I remember correctly). The dirt was dense and packed which is more indicative of fill for a home slab, not loose beach side type sand like I expected. It took some time since it wasn't easy digging and I see what looks like an old plumbing clean out for large diameter cast iron pipe.
    This is what I saw.

    And this is a real clean-out plug. (Almost all old ones are iron not brass like this image)

    I enlarged the hole just to confirm that it is indeed a plumbing pipe but instead of whatever the "plug" is attached to being cylindrical like a pipe it starts to curve back from the "plug" in all directions like a sphere. This is where I finally got cautious and more careful with my digging since this area of Florida has the WWII training facility in FT. Pierce about 8-10 miles away. (Navy Seal UDT Museum Link- https://www.navysealmuseum.org/about...dt-seal-museum )
    Munitions and ordnance are still found every couple of years so it is best to be cautious.

    More images to see if anyone can shed light on this being something dangerous or some benign garbage. Notice the grooved notches emanating from the "plug". They seem like they may be intentional and are not just a byproduct of the manufacturing process.

    I stopped when the hole got about 18"-20" in diameter. But I would say the "sphere" is about 24" -30" across. I can't imagine an older propane tank having this access point.

    Thanks for looking and any input on an ID.

    Very interesting!! Keep us posted. I'd be dying to know. If it's ordnance . . . maybe I really WOULD be dying to know . . .

    not an exact match but it looks a lot like the top of this WW2 Navy mine.
    When you canít find what your looking for, your looking in the wrong place. Time for another drink

    Indian River County, but the site has an ad blocker turn-off thing & doesn't allow me to read the whole article. I have to keep refreshing the page to read the article but i can see it is Indian River. Careful with that thing. VERY careful!

    Could it be a cover to an underground tank - either for fuel or to make gas for farm use?

    Well I just got a like from Pete so he is still with us.

    Whew.... sheesh man I think you should definitely STEP BACK on this one... call it in ASAP.

    I wouldn't dig it any more until it has been cleared to do so by authorities.

    Normally I wouldn't bother anyone with something until I knew for sure... but this IF it happens to be something bad could effect others as well.. so its IMO not an option.

    Due diligence required IMO.
