What Have They Found Under The Baltic Sea?
By James Donahue
For lack of a better name they have dubbed it the Baltic Anomaly. It is a 200-foot-wide somewhat oval
shaped object resting at the bottom of the Baltic Sea that some are saying appears to be a crashed space craft that is not
of this Earth.
Whatever it is, most observers doubt if it is a natural rock formation.
The object was discovered in 2011 by Swedish shipwreck researchers Peter Lindberg and Dennis Asberg.
"We saw it on sonar when we were searching for a wreck from World War I," said Lindberg. "This circular object just turned
up on the monitor."
Further research produced yet another surprise. A similar disk shaped object was found about 200 meters
from the first discovery.
A report in the Daily Mail said the sonar images show the object is about the size of a jumbo jet,
shaped like Han Solo’s spaceship in the Star Wars movies. Not only that, but there are about 400 meters of drag marks
leading away from it across the ocean floor.
The Swedish research firm Ocean Explorer is currently raising money to finance an extensive study
and perhaps salvage operation to find out what this thing is and how it may have gotten there. Another firm, Ocean X, is aboard
the research ship Ancylus for a summer research operation that began June 1. The object lies at a depth of about 275 feet
so it will be a deep-water operation.
In the meantime, Ocean Explorer is taking tourists and shipwreck hunters in submarine trips to get
a close-up look at the object.
Diver Stefan Hogeborn, a member of the Ocean X research team, said he has never seen anything like
it. He said from close up the object looks like a giant mushroom rising about 13 feet from the seabed, with rounded sides
and jagged edges. He said the object has an egg-shaped hole in the top as if this was an opening.
Also at the top of the object, Hogeborn’s team found stone circle formations that look something
like small fireplaces. They are covered with something that looks like soot.
"I went down there to answer questions but I came up- with even more questions," Hogeborn said.
Even more strange is that Hogeborn's team has found that their electronic equipment and even their
satellite phones stop working when directly above the anomaly. He said the effect begins at about 200 meters away.
The Ocean X team has signed a partnership agreement with Titan TV production. Titan is filming a documentary
for an international audience.
Whatever lies under the Baltic will soon be revealed to the world.
