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.'

Its hardly an Unidentified FLYING Object if its sitting on the bottom of the ocean, now is it?
Ah, the Daily Mail. Now it makes sense..
Either chemlights or calcium-based underwater flares would work.
Exactly. Have them take an old Kodak instamatic with real film down there and take a picture of the damn thing!
Latvia becomes the new Duchy of Fenwick.
There goes the credibility of this article.
Hmmmmmm, I wonder if there is a Hollywood blockbuster movie coming out shortly and this is just a publicity stunt? “Alien Saucer Invasion From The Sea”?
Now there's a statement about this I can agree with!
I did read somewhere that they are going to be organizing & CHARGING for sightseeing trips aboard a submersible soon. The article even had a picture of the sub.
Makes sense that they’d want to keep the mystery angle up to generate interest in the sightseeing tours.
almost got it right...he has actually asked them to send the extraterrestrial money they would spend on weddings and gifts to his campaign...
Snopes is run by a husband-and-wife team who do a little bit of extra research and call “experts” to verify/disprove internet claims. They’re also agenda-driven, so much of their information is dubious.
It went in backwards
[ Space aliens.
Its always those guys...
Release the trunk monkey!! ]
You owe me a new keyboard and a package of screen wipes.
This will be a tie-in to a movie release— lol. This object is either man-made or of Earthly, natural origins.
At this point if someone said they could take me to another planet free of liberals for 100,000 dollars I would so totally be like:
I declare Martian LAW!
Only if Barbara Eden is still on board!!!!
