60 Foot Disc Found on Sea Bottom

Updated on September 12, 2011

The Find

At the bottom of the sea between Sweden and Finland, some 87 meters deep, sonar shows what seems to be a disc 60 ft in diameter.

The image also seems to show drag marks some 300 m long. It is impossible to tell at this time as to whether the disc made these marks before it settled or whether the currents moved the disc after it had settled on the sea floor.

This disc could of course only be a geological formation of some kind but what then are the drag marks?

There is of course now some speculation as to what it is. Could it be some kind of ancient ruin, another Stonehenge perhaps?

It would certainly cause a stir, if it turns out to be some kind of spacecraft. That is, if the authorities don’t hush it up as they are suspected of usually doing.

Ocean Explorer Team

The Team

The Ocean Explorer team that found the disc is led by Peter Lindberg.

Recently this team has been funded by an earlier find. In 1997 the team found the wreck of a trade ship named Jonkoping. On board was a consignment of 1907 Heidsick Monopole Gout Americain. Later these bottles sold for $13,000 a bottle.

Mr. Lindberg said that they would not be examining the disc any further.

He explained that it was not the nature of their work, to investigate mysterious objects and would not be interested in looking at it, even if it was another Stonehenge.

Members of his team that first saw the sonar image, say they could not believe what they saw. They had never seen anything like it before, a perfect circle.

What is this mysterious object?

Will a scientific team now go and investigate or will we be left to just speculate?
