WHEN the mystery object at the bottom of the Baltic Sea was first spotted in 2011, it baffled experts and excited alien hunters. They still don’t know what it is.
Dubbed the “Baltic Sea Anomaly”, the structure looks like the Millenium Falcon from Star Wars.
It was discovered five years ago by Swedish treasure hunters, Ocean X team, led by Peter Lindberg, its captain, and his co-researcher Dennis Asberg, The Sun reports.
They used a side-scan sonar and found something strange 91 metres below the surface of the water.

It was reported that the divers exploring the anomaly said their equipment stopped working as they approached it.

“And then when we got away about 200 metres, it turned on again, and when we got back over the object it didn’t work.”
The 61-metre-wide and eight-metre-tall circular object hit the headlines, with many speculating the anomaly could be a giant mushroom, a sunken Russian ship or an alien spaceship. (Read more >>)
