Okay, not exactly, but that was the subject of pretty much every news story when this undersea object was found. According to Blastr magazine, it all began a year ago when during a sonar survey of the coasts of Sweden and Finland, a large cylindrical object was found on the sea floor. Subsequent sweeps found an even stranger object nearby, which was this Millennium Falcon-shaped object. The find baffled scientists, with opinions ranging from a strange rock formation to a UFO, and just about everything in between.
And so a team from OceanX was finally sent down to investigate. After spending a week on an on-sight study, here’s just a few of the things that were said about it:
“First they thought it was just stone or a rock cliff, but after further observations the object appeared more as a huge mushroom, rising 3-4 meters/10-13 feet from the seabed, with rounded sides and rugged edges. The object had an egg shaped hole leading into it from the top, as an opening. On top of the object they also found strange stone circle formations, almost looking like small fireplaces. The stones were covered in something resembling soot… The path to the object itself can be described as a runway or a downhill path that is flattened at the seabed with the object at the end of it.”
This is a summery of the team’s findings, which was conveyed via OceanX’s website. Ocean X founder Peter Lindberg, who was the dive team leader, had some interesting things to add:
“First we thought this was only stone, but this is something else. And since no volcanic activity has ever been reported in the Baltic Sea the find becomes even stranger. As laymen we can only speculate how this is made by nature, but this is the strangest thing I have ever experienced as a professional diver.”
Weird stuff huh? It is too late to re-evaluate all those alien astronauts theories, the ones where aliens visited our planet and tampered with our evolution? I might be prejudiced, I DID just see Prometheus after all. In any case, some samples have been brought back for study. So whether this is a man-made object, a natural phenomena, or some kind of alien device, we will soon know… or not.
