Divers recovered a sample of the so-called anomaly to the surface, and lab tests reportedly found it to contain and . A geologist claimed that these materials are “metals which nature could not reproduce itself”. Furthermore, divers say that “Anything electric out there – and the satellite phone as well – stopped working when we were above the object.”
The Baltic Sea Anomaly is perhaps one of the most mysterious underwater discoveries in recent years.
The ‘anomaly’ was detected on June 19, 2011, by the Swedish-based “Ocean X Team” during a dive in the between Sweden and Finland while searching for an old shipwreck. Ever since the anomaly was spotted, countless theories have emerged trying to explain what the heck this mystery objects is.
The Baltic Sea Anomaly is round, 3 to 4 meters (9.8 to 13.1 ft) thick and approximately 60 meters (200 ft) in diameter, stands on an 8-meter (26 ft) tall pillar-like feature, and is located at a depth of 85 to 90 meters (279 to 295 ft).
A year after discovering the object, the team decided to explore the anomaly more, and clarify the mystery behind the so-called submerged UFO. However, the group surfaced with more questions than answers.
“I cannot explain what we saw, I went there looking for answers, but I came up with even more questions,” said Stefan Hogeborn, one of Ocean X divers in 2012.
“During my 20-year diving career, including 6,000 dives, I have never seen anything like this. Normally stones don’t burn,” Mr. Hogeborn said in a press release.
‘We’ve heard lots of different kinds of explanations, from George Lucas’s spaceship – the Millennium Falcon – to “it’s some kind of plug to the inner world,” like it should be hell down there or something,’ diver Peter Lindberg said in a .
