Ocean X-Team object

In June, 2011, two Swedish treasure hunters were searching in the Baltic Sea for old bottles of champagne from shipwrecks when their sonar recorded this mysterious object on the ocean floor. No one knows what it is. The disc-shaped object is huge: 197 feet in diameter -- as big as a 747 jumbo jet. Its shape indicates that it is not a natural formation and appears to be made of a hard substance, such as concrete or metal.

Its disc shape has, of course, led some to label it a crashed flying saucer, yet experts who have examined the image cannot identify it. The sonar image reveals that it fell to the ocean floor, leaving a 4,000-foot gouge in the seabed before coming to rest. About 400 feet away is another unidentified object that might be related to the disc. It is speculated that they are part of a shipwreck or part of a discarded Russian submarine base.

The explorers -- Ocean X Team -- returned to the site last month (May, 2012) and have sent divers to verify the discovery and to explore it further. New pictures and video are forthcoming, they say. Watch a video here. What do you think it is?

It looks like a spaceship, but it’s most likely a natural rock formation.

What’s frustrating is, even if it actually is a downed UFO, we’ll never know about it because their government will lie and cover it up as usual.

I still think there was a civilization just like we have today with skyscrapers house everything…Its now likely under the oceans….Think about it…If only a few survived they would have to start from scratch….If it happened today and say only 10,000 people survive we would resort to being hunter gathers again…Its probably the top of a 30,000 yr old building

True enough, Han! And your co-pilot has been spotted all across America, but especially in the Northwest.

As for “a civilization just like we have today”, no chance. They would have used up the oil, mined the most accessible metals, and left behind huge garbage dumps.
