Expedition on so-called Baltic Sea ‘UFO’ deepens mystery

June 19th, 2012

PressTvSwedish scientists have failed to discover the nature and whereabouts of the unidentified object found at the bottom of the deep-sea Baltic last summer.

In August, an ocean exploration team led by Swedish researcher Peter Lindberg discovered a 200-foot wide unidentified object at the bottom of the Baltic Sea between Sweden and Finland.

While searching for a wreck from the World War I, an unknown circular object appeared on the monitor.

To unravel the mystery, a team of oceanographers, engineers and deep-sea divers were dispatched to the area on June 1, 2012.

The team spent nearly two weeks investigating the object and its environs using a robot camera and sonar Lindberg.

Digital pictures obtained from the strange object revealed it to be some sort of “natural, geological formation,” the team reported.

After two weeks of expedition, the team identified it as a giant stone, “one that seems to originate from before the Ice Age. The main object was not the only thing seen by the explorers. There are other, loose stones lying around as well,” Lindberg explained.

The odd thing about the discovery is that there is no silt on the rock, while it would ordinarily be covered with silt on the bottom of the sea, he added.

Now with many questions left without answer, “We don’t know whether it is a natural phenomenon, or an object,” Lindberg reported.
