A year ago, a Swedish diving team was scanning the floor of the Baltic Sea in search of a WWI wreck. Instead, 285 feet below the surface, they found an anomaly that looks very much like George Lukas’ Millennium Falcon! However, due to a temporary lack of funding, the dive team weren’t able to return to the site until recently.
Diver Peter Lindberg said, “First we thought this [object] was only stone, but this is something else.” He further explained that the object has “rounded sides and rugged edges”.
The object measures 60m (197 ft) in diameter and at the center it sports “an egg shaped hole leading into it from the top”. What they found upon closer inspection was strange:
- A rock formation ringed this egg-shaped hole. Divers said the rocks resembled “small fireplaces” and “the stones were covered in something resembling soot.”
- There is no reported volcanic activity in the Baltic Sea so how the stones were burned remains a mystery.
Another diver, Stefan Hogeborn said, “During my 20 year diving career, including 6,000 dives, I have never seen anything like this. Normally stones don’t burn. I can’t explain what we saw, and I went down there to answer some questions, but I came up with even more questions.”
Since then, the diving company created a submarine to take curious tourists for a ride to see the object at the bottom of the Baltic Sea for themselves.
Where are the Scientists?
My first thoughts were:
- Why did no one take a sample of the soot for testing?
- Why did no one take some of the rocks for testing?
- Where are the undersea archaeologists who should be studying it first?
The men who found the object are divers, not scientists. If the object was completely made out of rock, my first deduction is it must be a meteor. Scientists are the ones who should be investigating.
I was really hoping these guys had found something spectacular, but the minute I saw they were turning it into a tourist attraction, the red lights went on for me. They’re divers – they could have also planted it. The fact they are profiting from it turns the whole thing suspicious for me.
I think it’s very likely a hoax and that’s why scientists haven’t been called upon to inspect it.
I’m so disappointed, but until/if things change with this story, I’m calling it a hoax, or at least a misidentification of something like an ancient meteor.
Til the next time!
