Last year, a mysterious UFO-shaped 18.2m disc was discovered in the bottom of the Baltic sea by a Swedish ocean exploration team using sonar. Now they have managed to get near it and take photographs. According to diver Stefan Hogeborn, they have never seen anything like this:
During my 20-year diving career, including 6000 dives, I have never seen anything like this. Normally stones dont burn. I cant explain what we saw, and I went down there to answer questions, but I came up with even more questions.At first, the divers thought that the disc was just some kind of rock cliff. But closer observations revealed something different:
The object appeared more as a huge mushroom, rising 3-4 metres/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 divers say that there is a 985-foot-long path that can be described as a runway or a downhill path that is flattened at the seabed with the object at the end of it.
Peter Lindberg, who is one of the founder of the Swedish Ocean X Team, has always been clear that they are not claiming that this is a spaceship of any kind, but they dont know what it is:
First we thought this was only stone[...but no]. 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.

OK, I give up... what does “UFO-shaped” mean?
What I want to know is why aliens are so shy of professional photographers.
Like a lentil?
Looks like a big rock to me.
Nazi wonder weapon—sunk in 1945. Unfinished weapon that was to snatch victory from the jaws of defeat.
Just viral marketing for Independence Day 2.
Nothing to be alarmed about ... it’s just the Millinium Falcon.
Knowing only what is in the article, I would speculate that is a massive concretion sent down the subsea slope by an earthquake.
Drain plug for the ocean?
Russian Ironclad Novgorod 1874
Heat shield from a reentry vehicle?
This is modern journalism... *sigh*
Or poptop for hell!;-)
Coal.. the interplanetary fuel of advanced civilizations throughout the universe.
It has to be the Mother Ship. All the baby ships come out the slot in the rear.
Now we can all rest easy.
"Like a taco? Was it like one of those Sara Lee, um, moon-shaped cookies? Those crescent cookies? "
That’s the exact design for the Mellenium Falcon! Amazing! How did Speilberg know about this back in the late 70s?
It should be called a UUO — unidentified underwater object
Many eons ago an Uranus garbage transporter crashed and the RATS aboard have since multiplied.
I said it the first time this was posted,, it’s the Falcon by gosh!
hmm,, gotta be a tie fighter out there somewhere.........
Obama’s (or whatever that thing is) space/time-warp vehicle when he first came to earth. Call Ripley, we now have an infestation of aliens here.
Must have been hard as hell lighting a fire down there!
Why are you people such idiots about something like this?
Nobody ever suggested alien are involved, though “UFO-shaped” is evidence of some very poor writing.
During the Ice Age(s), the sea levels were vastly lower, due to so much water being tied up in the ice caps. There have already been some interesting discoveries off the coast of England that suggest human settlements where now there is open ocean.
What is this thing in the Baltic? Nobody knows yet. It’s certainly interesting and worth further study.
But snide comments don’t advance the discussion in the least.
SPEILBERG??? Don’t you mean Lucas???
BTW .... technically this is not a UFO (Unidentified Flying Object) ...... it should be classified under UUO (Unidentified Underwater Object)..... just sayin'
Maybe the remains of something like a Viking funeral? They put the stone altar aboard a ship, do their stuff on it, then get on another ship or lifeboat and burn the stone bearing ship?
“What I want to know is why aliens are so shy of professional photographers.”
Ask a sasquatch... he’ll know.
Well, it’s ovoid, bifurcated and apparently fragments at right angles, which says it’s not a naturally occurring structure. The images I saw looked to be stone or stonelike, unless that was sediment atop some other material. The “path” looks an awful lot like it skidded to rest where it is, could be manmade too, I suppose, assuming this site was submerged later, after it was created, for whatever purpose.
It is a puzzle.
If so, they've hit the motherload. Pieces of that thing will be sold by the ounce!
Well as long as it gets ya to Valhalla.
I'm sure if you publicize the time and location in advance plenty of professional photographers will show up. As it stands, TV news videographers have taken numerous clips. I take no position on what some of these things are or aren't, just that they're unexplained.
First of all, during the Ice Age, that area would have been under a sea of ice.
However, IF it’s anything genuine, and man-made, it could be a structure made of stone and built on ice...and then over time things got warmed up and one day it crashed through into the sea, more or less all at once; and that 900-ft trench might have been carved by the currents passing over it.
Or maybe the whole thing’s just a marketing ploy.
Giant fossilized horseshoe crab that Neanderthals worshipped and made into an altar before a massive subsidence event caused the whole shebang to go sliding into the briney deep, lol.
