A woman walking along a beach in Australia stumbled upon a message in a bottle that was written 132 years ago!
Tonya Illman spotted the remarkable object sitting in the sand near Australia's Wedge Island and was intrigued by it's somewhat unique appearance.
Upon closer inspection, she realized that the bottle contained a note inside and the contents of the missive are rather amazing as the note was written in June of 1886.
A subsequent investigation into the letter, which was written in German, revealed that the bottle was part of an experiment to study ocean currents.
