Re: UFO at the bottom of the Baltic Sea

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
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.'

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

Any new news?

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:

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.

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! :-)
