30+ second drop. Do the math. Located near Dugway Proving Grounds ("Area 52") in Western Utah. They test a lot of top secret stuff underground out there. Banging sound is caused by the rock bouncing off the sides of the hole as it drops. This hole is a few miles away from Dugway's UAV blimp base; the blimp is visible just down the valley from the hole. We dropped a lit bottle rocket in upside down, and we could observe the flash from the report several hundred feet down, so we know it straight for at least that far. What should we drop down next?
UPDATE: On June 15, 2012, we lowered a rock on fishing line down the hole. We lowered it more than 3,000 feet down, and had not yet reached the bottom.
UPDATE: Our first attempt to lower a camera down failed. The camera broke on the way down (rust from the walls got inside the camera and it stopped working).
UPDATE: We purchased a mini low light video camera to drop down the hole. As soon as we get a good weather window, we will find out what is at the bottom!
UPDATE: We have video of the bottom of the hole (at least we think it might be the bottom) here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fT4o5T...
