'UFO' at the bottom of the Baltic Sea 'cuts off electrical equipment when divers get within 200m'
dalymail.co.uk ^ | 6-27-12 | Eddie Wrenn

Posted on 06/27/2012 6:17:57 AM PDT by rawhide

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 didn’t work.'

Diver Peter Lindberg said: 'We have experienced things that I really couldn’t 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.'

Correct me if I’m wrong, but I think this is a USO (Unidentified Submerged Object) rather than a UFO. Unless there’s someone around that saw it flying and then land there.

I am surprised the local national governments have not gotten involved with this so-called discovery? Could this be a hoax in the making? hmmm? Wonder if snopes.com is on top of this?

I’m thinking its one of the experimental Russian ironclads from the 1800s. They made several of them that were round.

Anyone know the depth at which this object lies? There’s a photo of a diver and it would appear he’s not outfitted for extreme depth. Much of the sea is very shallow.
That business about cameras cutting off is very dubious. Sounds like these guys have a golden goose, as long as they keep it mysterious.

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.

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?

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.

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.

So get an old entirely-mechanical film camera in a waterproof case and start snapping pictures. Use a non-electrical chemical flare for illumination.

Either chemlights or calcium-based underwater flares would work.

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.
