Video: Divers find large, unexplained object at bottom of Baltic Sea

A team of salvage divers has discovered an unexplained object resting at the bottom of the Baltic Sea near Sweden.

"This thing turned up. My first reaction was to tell the guys that we have a UFO here on the bottom," said Peter Lindberg, the leader of the amateur treasure hunters.

Sonar readings show that the mysterious object is about 60 meters across, or, about the size of a jumbo jet. And it's not alone. Nearby on the sea floor is another, smaller object with a similar shape. Even more fascinating, both objects have "drag marks" behind them on the sea floor, stretching back more than 400 feet.

"Could this be the Star Wars Millenium Falcon, a plug to an inner world or a marine version of Stonehenge?" asks CNN's Brooke Bowman:

Or... maybe it’s just a large volcanic rock that got dragged 400 feet by ocean currents, but yeah, it could be Atlantis too.

Been posted and discussed before, I think the consensus then was that it was a unique style of a round boat used by traders centuries ago.

“Lindberg notes that some observers have speculated that the objects may be Russian warships built around the end of the 1800’s. However, Lindberg points out that not only were those ships much smaller, they were not patrolling the Baltic during that era.”

THEREFORE it must be aliens. /sarc

If there is any suspiscion that it is an alien craft, the History Channel will do a special on it. They are convinced that Aliens have visited us and are responsible for everything they cannot otherwise explain.

Cool!

It would make my year if it’s an ancient UFO, and the discovery activates a beacon that leads to a world-ending alien invasion, or unleashes a deadly alien virus that devestates the planet. That would ROCK!

It's the gravestone on proper journalism, maybe.

Is anyone else offended that an alleged journalist would ask such a leading, stupid, sensationalist question?

I watched a show by Michio Kaku on how we could defend against an alien invasion. It never occurred to the physicist that the aliens would simply launch a biological attack. No need for lasers and spaceships and fancy weapons when you can just kill everyone with a virus.

Better check with Clive Cussler’s NUMA team.

By the way, does anyone know whether Cussler is conservative or liberal? I’ve read several of his books and enjoyed them. But, the one I just started seems to be glorifying environmental wackos, and if he’s a lib, I want to trash it before I bet too much further in.

A local radio talk show host referred to the History Channel as the Hitler Channel. He claimed that every time he'd look they had something about Hitler on it.

Perhaps years ago, it seems Adolph has been replaced by aliens.

I doubt that we are the only 'intelligent life's in the universe (and truthfully I think looking at 0 and Biden, I think we aren't intelligent.) so I think it could be a UFO.

I believe that GOD created more planets with intelligent life - maybe a planet void of liberals.

You and I are on the same page. We were watching that show, and I told my wife if aggressive aliens ever showed up we'd be dead instantly -- either biological, nano, or some other tech that targets whatever lifeform you want eradicated. There'd be no fight -- none.

The History Channel was soundly taken to task in South Park's Thanksgiving episode this past November. IMHO, one of the funniest episodes, ever.
