As far as I can tell, this is it:
http://thebalticanomaly.se/

Looks pretty genuine and seems to have the most up-to-date info and those artist's impressions. fascinating stuff! :-)

where is it?

I've been fascinated by this story for a while, since I read about it sometime last year. I've seen those artist's impression paintings on the official website of the guys who go down there (So they are impressions based on the genuine data). I somehow doubt it's a crashed UFO, but you never know. There are so many things it could be. I'm sure they'll eventually decide it's a natural phenomenon of some kind, but it I suspect there will never be a definitive answer. Perhaps a relic of an early civilisation? It'd be great if it turned out to be evidence that humans had been technologically advanced a lot longer than archaeologists thought possible. ;-)

As for the 'landing strip' it could be as simple as a it being an area left clear when debris has collected and settled coming from the opposite side of the structure.

The difference between this and the titanic, is that the Titanic has been an obsession of individuals and the public for decades. This is a recent discovery that most will brush off as nothing. So nobody's going to spend money going down there, except for the guys who discovered it and know there's something definitely worth investigating, even if it's only for their own profit.

Professional diver Stefan Hogerborn, part of the Ocean X team which is exploring the anomaly, said some of the team's cameras and the team's satellite phone would refuse to work when directly above the object, and would only work once they had sailed away.
He is quoted as saying: 'Anything electric out there - and the satellite phone as well - stopped working when we were above the object.
'And then we got away about 200 meters and it turned on again, and when we got back over the object it didn’t work.'
Well, if it is Basalt, the magnetic nature of the rock may explain the disruption to electrical equipment.
Wikipedia wrote:The mineralogy of basalt is characterized by a preponderance of calcic plagioclase feldspar and pyroxene. Olivine can also be a significant constituent. Accessory minerals present in relatively minor amounts include iron oxides and iron-titanium oxides, such as magnetite, ulvospinel, and ilmenite. Because of the presence of such oxide minerals, basalt can acquire strong magnetic signatures as it cools, and paleomagnetic studies have made extensive use of basalt.
I wounder if anyone has taken any magnetic readings from the area? :geek:

This is really a story for Mulder and Scully I think!

Any new news?

it could just be a rock formation (just as per Rob's artists impression photo)
  • There is still only one sonar image in existence of the 200-foot-wide (60-meter-wide) object.
  • According to experts that image is lacking in resolution.
  • Experts think the image is probably a roughly circular rock formation called a pillow basalt
pity though

Its either that malc or they are trying to supress the information.

did you know that THE TITANIC sank into very deep water?
The fundamental problem was the sheer difficulty of finding and reaching a wreck that lies over 12,000 feet (3,700 m) below the surface

A number of expeditions were mounted to find Titanic but it was not until 1 September 1985 that a Franco-American expedition succeeded.[181]

The team discovered that Titanic had in fact split apart, probably near or at the surface, before sinking to the seabed. The separated bow and stern sections lie about a third of a mile (0.6 km) apart in a canyon on the continental shelf off the coast of Newfoundland.
so with THE TITANIC a full TWO MILES (yes TWO MILES) below the surface all kinds of recon missions HAVE still been possible

and how far down is this "UFO"? 275 feet?

I guess the actual problem is "apathy" - nobody believes it :lol:

I'm not sure what to make of this story (the picture is obviously an artists impression) as the original press release only tells of a cylinder shaped object, 197 feet in diameter, and at a depth of approximately 275 feet.

It goes on to say... “We need to know what we’ve found. Media has been speculating about everything from UFO’s 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 3 800 feet throughout the bottom of the sea, ”said Peter Lindberg, one of the professionals at Ocean X Team.

This is totally at odds with the Daily Mail story :?

It seems to me that if Mr. Lindberg wanted to find out what this is, he has means to find out, but he also has a vested interest in keeping the speculation going.

Another one bites the dust... :roll:

Its either an amazing find or an amazing fake!

How knows?

well how deep is it down? surely that is the main difficulty factor :gog:

it's the size of a 747, it skidded along 300 meters on the sea bed before coming to rest and it's been there 50+ years, amazing case

'UFO' at the bottom of the Baltic Sea 'cuts off electrical equipment when divers get within 200m'

By Eddie Wrenn UPDATED: 07:26, 27 June 2012

The divers exploring a 'UFO-shaped' object at the bottom of the Baltic Sea say their equipment stops working when they approach within 200m.
Professional diver Stefan Hogerborn, part of the Ocean X team which is exploring the anomaly, said some of the team's cameras and the team's satellite phone would refuse to work when directly above the object, and would only work once they had sailed away.
He is quoted as saying: 'Anything electric out there - and the satellite phone as well - stopped working when we were above the object.
