The Baltic Sea Anomaly
If you’re looking for the ultimate in ghostly, intriguing, stunning deep sea discoveries, then you’ve just found it in the shape of the Baltic Sea Anomaly. For years, this discovery has been a mystery, after divers found what looked like a UFO sunk in the waters at the bottom of the northern Baltic Sea at the centre of the Gulf of Bothnia.
Discovered by sonar image by the Ocean X diving team in 2011, the ghostly image sent back to surprised explorers looks just like a UFO. It’s thought to be raised off the sea bed by about 10 feet and measures in the region of 200 feet by 25 feet – so, enormous.
Many artists impressions of the object have been produced, and many theories abound about what it could be. Having the distinct shape of the Millennium Falcon from Star Wars, these theories range from a UFO (it’s been dubbed the “Roswell of the Ocean”), to a plug to the underworld, to a Nazi anti-submarine defence ship.
More recently, rock samples brought to the surface from this mysterious site suggest that it’s merely glacial rocks, that have been dragged across the ocean floor for many years. Since the area is a glacial basin, carved out during the ice age, this does seem like the most reasonable explanation. But then, stranger things do happen at sea… What do you think?
