During a sonar survey of the ocean floor between Finland and Sweden on June 19, an ocean exploration team found something that could be a sunken UFO.
Swedish researcher Peter Lindberg was looking for remains of Swedish merchant ships that were sunken by German troops during the First World War. He was attempting to salvage the ships’ ages-old cargo such as wines and champagne when he came upon the discovery.
The unidentified object, which was captured in the sonar image, is partially buried under the ocean floor. It has a circular shape, similar to the typical image of the flying saucer popularized today, and is about 60 feet in diameter, Lindberg told local media.
Its structure is irregular, and it seems as if it had crumbled from a heavy impact by hitting the ground, which could explain why only a part of it is buried underground. According to Space.com, the environment near the object also shows signs of disturbance, suggesting that the object moved across the sea floor.
Lindberg said on his team’s website that although he has spent hundreds of hours observing sonar surveys of the ocean floor, he has never seen anything like it.
However, his team lacks funds to continue investigating the object.
“It’s up to the rest of the world to decide what it is,” he said. “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.”
“Since it might be nothing we cannot afford spending funds just to have a look at it, even if it might be a ‘new’ Stonehenge standing on the bottom.”
