The wreckage of what is believed to be the USS Juneau has been discovered in the South Pacific near the Soloman Islands.

The USS Juneau, a light cruiser, was lost on the 3rd of November 1942 at the battle of Guadalcanal. The Cruiser was found in almost 4,000 metres of water by Vulcan Inc (an exploration and conversation company). More than 680 American sailors were killed when the cruiser was cut in half by Japanese torpedoes.
