Ocean Explorer Team Discovers Anomaly on Bottom of Baltic Sea
Translated from German as best I could:
"The object is partial destroyed. There seems to be a lower entrance level that is divided on the top right. Possible "drive elements" in a center honeycombed structure in-between.
The lower portion is covered with sediment giving the appearance of a dish, or disc shape. It is also possible that this object is a building structure, built during the ice age?"
The Ocean Explorer team conducted between 11/6-19/6 2011 together with Franskabolaget.com a search expedition to find more of the sunken treasures of the Sea of Bothnia (northern Baltic Sea). The treasures consits of alcoholic beverages such as Champagne, Wine and Cognac laying in the holds of small Swedish mechant ships sunken by the germans during the first world war. The most famous wreck so far is with out doubt the small ketch "Jönköping" which was sunken on the 3 November 1916 by the German Uboat U 22 with 3000 bottles of Heidsieck & Co MONOPOLE Gôut Américain champagne from 1907, and 67 barrels of Bisquite & Duboché Cognac, each barrel containing 600 litres in her holds. Some of the champagne bottles has been sold for as much as EUR 20 000 per bottle.
This years first search/salvage expedition was granted with for the season terrible weather which did the search nearly impossible and is a reason why the Ocean Explorer team will continue the search for the "fluid gold" later during this summer.
However, on the 19 June a very strange anomaly was found during a sonar survey of the sea floor. Peter Lindberg, the initiator of the expeditions, says that he has never seen anything like it even if he has spent hundreds of hours watching sonar images of the sea floor, "it's up to the rest of the world to decide what it is" he says. "It is not in our sphere of interest to go for this object since the cost for each hour out on the sea are tremendous" he says, "Since it might be nothing we can not afford spending funds just to have a look at it, even if it might be a "new" Stonehenge standing on the bottom.
Ocean Explorer of course welcomes every approach of interest regarding the strange anomaly.
Note: I don't know about you but I find this very interesting. I look forward to seeing what the Ocean Explorer team discovers about this anomaly.
Could it be a sunken temple, downed UFO/USO, or something else? I guess we will have to wait and see what they tell us. -SW
