If the title alone makes you think I’m talking about the next science fiction film, let me assure you – I’m not.
According to cnet.com and a quick blurb that appeared on the Fox News Channel this afternoon, an unidentified object that’s strikingly similar to a spherical UFO has been found at the bottom of the Baltic Sea.
If that’s not interesting enough, perhaps these facts will grab you. According to Peter Lindberg (the expedition leader), sonar images are showing the object has a diameter of 60 meters (196 feet), and there is evidence of actual skid marks where it may have hit underwater and slid before stopping.
The Ocean Explorer team made the find. They’re an experienced group of Swedish salvagers who have already found relics on the bottom of the ocean floor and rescued them from the watery depths (for example, rare and very expensive champagne). Unfortunately due to lack of funds they were unable to continue with this investigation, but thankfully due to donations that have been pouring in they’re now in a better financial place where they can – and will – revisit the area.
Could this be a UFO? Or is there a less extra-terrestrial explanation? While there are those who are skeptical and believe it could be a weather balloon, rock, etc., others aren’t so quick to discount the possibility that this could be proof of life from other planets visiting our own.
As more news develops, we’ll be sure to bring it to you.
In the meantime, what do you believe? Is it an abandoned, underwater archeological site, a boulder or something more?
