A Swedish expedition team has found an
unidentified object at the bottom of the Baltic Sea, leaving some to
believe it’s the remnants of an extra-terrestrial ship.
Scientists went off on a deep-water dive to debunk some theories
about the underwater object, but were left with more questions than
they had answers.
The divers found that the object was raised about 10 to 13 feet
above the seabed, and curved in at the sides.
“First we thought this was only stone, but this is something else,”
Ocean X team diver Peter Lindberg said in a press release.
The object had an egg shaped hole leading into it from the top,
working like an opening. On top of the object, they found strange
stone circle formations, which resembled small fireplaces.
stones were covered in something that resembled “soot.”
“During my 20-year diving career, including 6000 dives, I have never
seen anything like this. Normally stones don’t burn. I can’t explain
what we saw, and I went down there to answer questions, but I came
up with even more questions “, Stefan Hogeborn, one of the divers at
Ocean X Team, said in the press release.
Farther back from the object, the Ocean X team said that they could
see a “runway” or a downhill path that is flattened at the seabed
with the object at the end of it.
“As laymen we can only speculate how this is made by nature, but
this is the strangest thing I have ever experienced as a
professional diver“, continues Peter Lindberg, one of the founder
Ocean X Team.
Scientists are currently examining samples from the circle-shaped
object, and experts in sonar imaging are processing data from the
“ship” to help shed more light on what exactly this underwater
The outline of the ship on pictures resembles the famous Star Wars
ship the “Millennium Falcon.”
Lindberg said the odd thing about the discovery is that there is no
silt on the rock, which is an ordinary thing to find when lying at
the bottom of the sea.
also told Fox News that the object is,
“disc-shaped” and “appears
to have construction lines and boxes drawn on it.”
Lindberg told the news agency that the Americans and Japanese “are
much more excited” about the discovery than the local Swedish
