If one of our own space probes crashed on an inhabited planet somewhere in deep space, would aliens quickly dismiss the possibly that this
probe was constructed by another intelligent civilization capable of producing a craft that explores space? Hopefully not!
Something huge is lying buried deep underwater on our own planet and scientists are now trying to shed new light on the mystery.
The object in question was discovered in the summer of 2011 by a group of Swedish treasure hunters from
the Ocean Explorer, a diving
company that has made many interesting underwater discoveries over the years.
Ocean Explorer has been conducting various diving excursions in North Europe for over 20 years. Their main focus has been to search
for hidden treasures such as antique high-end alcoholic beverages and historic artifacts. Some excursions include the salvaging of
champagne bottles from the wreck Jönköping in 1997.
However, the biggest discovery occurred on June 19, 2011 when Ocean Explorer came across something they hade never seen before.
They were exploring in the Baltic Sea between Sweden and Finland looking for sunken treasures when a very unusual image suddenly appeared on the sonar.
"This thing turned up. My first reaction was to tell the guys that we have a UFO here on the bottom," said Peter Lindberg.
The object is disc-shaped and resting on the 300-foot-deep ocean floor between Finland and Sweden. It is a large circle, about 60 feet in diameter.
What could it be?
"You see a lot of weird stuff in this job, but during my 18 years as a professional I have never seen anything like this.
The shape is completely round, " explains Peter Lindberg, founder of Ocean Explorer.

"We need to know what we've found. Media has been speculating about everything from UFOs to Russian space ships.
What we know at this point is its size and shape and we also know, based upon the sonar image, that there is a ridged tail going
from or to the cylinder shaped anomaly of about 1 600 feet throughout the bottom of the sea.
We cannot tell when it was placed in the Baltic Sea, if the object was dumped into the sea or if it’s a natural phenomenon," continues Mr. Lindberg.
According to Lindberg it is unlikely the object is a shipwreck. Lindberg says the ship theory doesn’t really hold up because of
the unusually large size of the objects. Lindberg notes that some observers have speculated that the objects may be Russian warships
built around the end of the 1800?s. However, Lindberg points out that not only were those ships much smaller, they were not patrolling the Baltic during that era.
What makes this discovery even more really intriguing is that the object had been moving. Lindberg and his team saw evidence of scars
or marks disturbing the environment nearby, suggesting the object somehow moved across the ocean floor to the place where his team found it.
So, did an extraterrestrial spaceship crash on our planet and is now resting deep underwater? No-one knows for sure. The object
discovered by Lindberg and his team must be examined before we can say with certainty what it is.
Science is about investigating and not jumping to conclusions. The possibility this could be a crashed UFO cannot be dismissed,
but of course there is now way of identifying this mysterious object based on a couple of sonar images.
That is exactly why Lindberg and his team are planning a new expedition. "We are determined to successfully complete our mission of
finding out what’s at the bottom of the Baltic Sea. Because of the sea depth, it is a risky operation that requires a lot of planning,
strategy and financial resources," said Dennis Aasberg, one of the three professionals at Ocean Explorer in Stockholm, Sweden.
On January 26, 2012, Ocean Explorer announced the company is "looking for investors who are interested in the object and can see the potential value."

Unusual Sounds From Space Reported Worldwide - What Are They?
For almost a year now people from different countries have reported hearing strange sound from the sky. Now scientists propose that what people are
hearing is only a small fraction of the actual power of these sounds!
What are these sounds? What is causing them? Are they in anyway related to our Sun and the biggest solar flares, do they come from Earth's inner core
or can they be attributed to an unknown an astronomical phenomenon? Are they in anyway dangerous to our planet?
Unknown Force "Intelligently" Put Together Miranda Moon - with video
What could melt this moon in this extremely cold region of the solar system?
Voyager 2 passed Miranda’s strange world at a distance of only 3,000 kilometers (1,800 miles) and
sent back to Earth very detailed images of its "tortured" surface.
Nothing like them has been seen anywhere else in the solar system! Did a type III civilization conduct some "experiments" on Miranda?
