A Lost Shipwreck…or a Lost UFO?

A few months ago, Ocean Explorer used side-scan sonar to “photograph” something strange deep in the Baltic Sea, approximately 260 feet beneath the surface.

It’s a circular UFO-like object (or to be accurate, I guess a USO), about 200 feet in diameter, with a tail stretching over 1,300 feet across the sea floor. While some experts believe it’s nothing more than a natural rock formation, many others are extremely curious about it. Ocean Explorer hopes to get a closer look at it in 2012 and is seeking funding to do so. Until then, here’s a good update on the story from CNN:

Deep down on the bottom of the Baltic Sea, Swedish treasure hunters think they have made the find of a lifetime.

The problem is, they’re not exactly sure what it is they’ve uncovered.

Out searching for shipwrecks at a secret location between Sweden and Finland, the deep-sea salvage company Ocean Explorer captured an incredible image more than 80 meters below the water’s surface.

At first glance, team leader and commercial diver Peter Lindberg joked that his crew had just discovered an unidentified flying object, or UFO.

“I have been doing this for nearly 20 years so I have a seen a few objects on the bottom, but nothing like this,” said Lindberg.
