Skip to comments.'UFO' at the bottom of the Baltic Sea 'cuts off electrical equipment when divers get within 200m'

Object is raised about 10 to 13ft above seabed and curved at the sides like a mushroom.
Hole is surrounded by an strange rock formation that expedition team can not explain.
Stones are covered in something 'resembling soot' which has baffled experts.
Divers say phones and some cameras switch off when close to the object.
The divers exploring a 'UFO-shaped' object at the bottom of the Baltic Sea say their equipment stops working when they approach within 200m.
Professional diver Stefan Hogerborn, part of the Ocean X team which is exploring the anomaly, said some of the team's cameras and the team's satellite phone would refuse to work when directly above the object, and would only work once they had sailed away.
He is quoted as saying: 'Anything electric out there - and the satellite phone as well - stopped working when we were above the object.
'And then we got away about 200 meters and it turned on again, and when we got back over the object it didnt work.'
Diver Peter Lindberg said: 'We have experienced things that I really couldnt imagine and I have been the team's biggest skeptic regarding these different kind of theories.
'I was kind of prepared just to find a stone or cliff or outcrop or pile of mud but it was nothing like that, so for me it has been a missing experience I must say.'
Member Dennis Åsberg said: 'I am one hundred percent convinced and confident that we have found something that is very, very, very unique.
'Then if it is a meteorite or an asteroid, or a volcano, or a base from, say, a U-boat from the Cold War which has manufactured and placed there - or if it is a UFO... 'Well honestly it has to be something.'

What a bunch of crap. No close up pictures? No one has gotten samples of it yet? This story has been around for months. You would think that someone has figured it out by now.
You might be right?
Soot? Like cold dead algae? Bet the Baltic is full of that.
Probably an old space re-entry vehicle. The ‘rocks’ around the hole are the insulating panels and the soot is from the burn on reentry.
A bubble of highly magnetized iron based rock from magma that surfaced and hardened millions of years ago, and was subsequently covered by the Baltic?
That’s really interesting. Maybe they could overcome the instability with today’s computer’s like they do with today’s most sophisticated fighters.
I don’t understand why people are so enamored with snopes. They’ve been busted several times for false information in the past.
i dunno....just doesn’t sound quite right...especially when you consider that photo montage they put up last week includinf footage of the loch ness monster. they included several of the same pic of the ‘object’ that were tinted different colors etc..
we’re gettign played here, is my thought
This story has to be a hoax. There are a couple of close up photos but nothing to match what the wild scene they describe. Its probably viral marketing for a movie or game thats coming out soon.
snopes.com is a selective truth or lie site.
Modern cameras (I.e. digital). All require electronics. Given this discovery of the interference, I’m sure somebody can scrounge up an old manual film camera. Lighting would be the issue then. Would have to go with chemical based lights.
Have you no decency Sir, damn you.
I was going to put forth this one...
or as I like to call it “Spew”.
‘Then if it is a meteorite or an asteroid, or a volcano, or a base from, say, a U-boat from the Cold War which has manufactured and placed there - or if it is a UFO... ‘Well honestly it has to be something.’
It has to be something. OK thanks for that brilliant observation.
So get an old entirely-mechanical film camera in a waterproof case and start snapping pictures. Use a non-electrical chemical flare for illumination.
Likely to be large magnetized rocks.
