THE Aurora Islands were "supposed" to lie in the South Atlantic, within 1600km of Antarctica, but they kept on appearing and disappearing.
They didn't vanish because of any cataclysmic event - but never existed in the first place.
In 1762 a British ship named the Aurora reported the discovery of three small islands in the bleak ocean near Antarctica.
In 1790 another ship reported seeing the same three islands, which were called the Auroras after the British ship that first sighted them.
Then, in 1794, a Spanish ship sighted the three islands. The existence of the Auroras was accepted as fact, and the islands appeared on all sailing charts of the period.
But in 1820 explorer James Weddell searched for the Auroras and could find no trace of them.
Perhaps the Auroras were some sort of mirage, we will probably never know.
