Shipwreck surveyors found a
remarkable object in the depths of the Baltic Sea, but before they start
celebrating, they need to figure out what it is. A
Swedish company named Ocean Explorer have discovered an unidentified
object using their sonar technology in a secret location in the Baltic
Sea.Because of a lack of funding and bad timing, they have not been able to pull a team together to see for themselves.

A similar disk-shaped object was also found about 200 metres away.
Their sonar pictures show that the object is a massive cylinder with a 60 metre diameter and a 400 metre-long tail.

The sonar picture of the unidentified object resembles the famed Star Wars ship the Millennium Falcon
At this point, the story behind the object is anyone's guess.
'We've heard lots of different kinds
of explanations, from George Lucas's spaceship -- the Millennium Falcon
-- to 'it's some kind of plug to the inner world,' like it should be
hell down there or something,' said Peter Lindberg, a diver on the team.
While the Ocean Explorer
team is understandably excited about their potentially earth-shattering
find, others are slightly more sceptical and are questioning the
accuracy of the sonar technology. In the past, such technology has confused foreign objects with unusual- but natural- rock formations.
now, Ocean Explorers have to wait to find out until chaotic water
conditions calm down in order to allow a manned expedition to happen. Additionally,
they are looking for financial backers to help aid the cost of the
discovery process, and are calling for interested investors on their
website. Part of the
trouble they face, however, is that they have no way of telling what is
inside the supposed cylinder- whether it is filled with gold and riches
or simply aged sediment particles.
They're hoping for the former, and history seems to be in their favour.
Baltic Sea is a treasure trove for shipwreck hunters, as an estimated
100,000 objects are thought to line the cold sea's floor.The
company have created a submarine that they hope will appeal to tourists
and wannabe shipwreck hunters who will pay to take a trip down to the
bottom of the Baltic Sea to see for themselves.
