Washington: Astronomers may have found an explanation for the existence of the "Cold Spot" which may be "the largest individual structure ever identified by humanity".

If the Cold Spot originated from the Big Bang itself, it could be a rare sign of exotic physics that the standard cosmology (basically, the Big Bang theory and related physics) does not explain. The supervoid is only about three billion light-years away from us, a relatively short distance in the cosmic scheme of things."
