UFO Found In Baltic Sea

Updated on July 2, 2012

by Christine B.


In June of 2011 a team of Swedish treasure hunters was exploring the bottom of the Baltic Sea and found more than they bargained for. 90 meters down their sonar equipment picked up a strange disc-like object. The object was covered with mud and was positioned at the end of what looked like a runway that was 300 meters long. Their images where sent to international experts to determine what the object was, but the object could not be explained.

In 2012 an exploration group known as “Ocean X Team”
went back to the area to try to solve the mystery. They
determined that the object rises three to four meters
above the sea bed. It is 60 meters in diameter with an
egg-shaped hole which leads to the inside. Surrounding
this hole they found circular rock formations, which
appeared to be “small fireplaces” that were covered
with a substance that resembled soot. The concave
sides and extended rear structure reminded them of
a Millennium Falcon warship from Star Wars.

In a press release to Ocean Explorer one of the founders of the Ocean X Team, Peter Lindberg, said, “Since no volcanic activity has ever been reported in the Baltic Sea, the find becomes even stranger,” said Lindberg “As laymen, we can only speculate how this [could be] made by nature, but this is the strangest thing I have ever experienced as a professional diver.”


Samples from the object were sent to scientists for examination, but nothing conclusive has been reported. Other experts are reviewing the sonar images and processing other data from the area. The nature of the object is a mystery.

The exact coordinates of the find have not been released to the public, but it is confirmed to be in the Botnia Gulf between Finland andSweden. This area has been the location of many ancient sea battles and is still a busy maritime route. The Baltic Sea has been a long-time site for shipwrecks and treasure hunters. It has been estimated that over 100,000 objects rest at the bottom of the sea in this area.
