December 7th, 1941 is a day that will live in infamy as thousands of innocent sailors lost their lives to a sneak attack from the Japanese Navy. There have been many mysteries surrounding the tragic events of the day but many questions have gone unanswered. One of those mysteries was the rumored presence of midget subs, they were thought to be rumors but now photographic evidence may offer some answers.
Historians uncovered a photograph taken of the attack on Pearl Harbor that inspired a very heated debate. The image shows impact waves coming from the USS West Virginia as it is being hit by a torpedo. However, there does not appear to be a plane within the vicinity that could have delivered such an attack.
Also not far off from there from Battleship Row there is a splash of water which is known as a “rooster tail.” This water formation typically appears when an underwater object moves upward rapidly. Experts theorize that when a 42-ton midget sub fired its 2-ton torpedo, it dislodged the water created this formation.
Researchers were brought in to analyze the photograph and put the theory to rest once and for all, check out the startling results in this clip.
