Deep down on the bottom of the Baltic Sea, Swedish treasure hunters think they have made the find of a lifetime.
The problem is, they’re not exactly sure what it is they’ve uncovered.
Out searching for shipwrecks at a secret location between Sweden and Finland, the deep-sea salvage company Ocean Explorer captured an incredible image more than 80 meters below the water’s surface.
At first glance, team leader and commercial diver Peter Lindberg joked that his crew had just discovered an unidentified flying object, or UFO.
Using side-scan sonar, the team found a 60-meter diameter cylinder-shaped object, with a rigid tail 400 meters long.
I recall when this was found back in August. (Doubtful News wasn’t up and running yet.) Not sure why this is getting attention now.
It looks like the Millienium Falcon. People are saying it’s a crashed UFO or something strange (it’s an unidentified submerged object, USO); the comments on these stories are always a hoot. I’m really interested to see what it is though I would suspect it’s not going to be as fantastic, but still fun.
