One of history’s most stunning and puzzling discoveries is this one. You would be mistaken if you believed that the return voyage would provide answers to all of the queries concerning the Baltic phenomenon. The OceanX crew has found straight edges, walls with perfectly smooth surfaces, cavities-like passages inside the item, as well as what appears to be a stairway, making the already bizarre situation even worse.
Dennis Sberg, co-founder of Ocean Explorer, said, “When we stepped outside and saw the walls, which were straight and smooth, it was scary, like in a science-fiction movie.”
We have gathered the following information on the anomaly from the many reports and interviews that were provided.
plate-like exterior that is entirely round.
180 meters around the perimeter.
Object is 200 feet across and mushroom-shaped, rising a total of 12 meters (about 40 feet) above the surrounding seabed. It is made up of an 8-meter-tall thick pillar and a 4-meter-thick dome.
Corridors inside the item that resemble caverns.
In certain places, there are smooth, straight walls with lots of right angles.
On top of the item, there are visible structures that are angled at a 90-degree angle and resemble walls or passages, as well as what seems to be a stairway.
On top of the dome are stone circles that resemble “fireplaces,” each measuring a few inches in diameter and made of hard, burnt-looking stone that is nearly petrified and has the appearance of four or five pearls strung together.
The spherical device, dubbed “The Meringue,” is 4 meters wide and rests on top of the thing.
There is a 25 centimeter hole on top of the item, but it is unknown what it goes to or if anything is within at this moment.
Long “skid marks” or runways that point north lead to the item.
The most recent discoveries of straight walls, perfectly smooth surfaces, and inside passageways resembling caverns are, if conceivable, considerably weirder than any UFO could ever aspire to be. A UFO discovery would really look absolutely banal now.
Now it appears that as more details are made public, the object’s mystery deepens. The good news for everyone who is interested in this topic is that the OceanX team will launch a THIRD voyage in about two weeks. They hope to rule out some of the answers and gather even more information to help explain this baffling riddle.
“A fresh mission is scheduled to start in about three weeks.” OceanX Team co-founder Peter Lindberg (approx 2 weeks now at time of publishing)
Aasberg recently spoke on Swedish radio about several incredible characteristics that seem to suggest the thing is artificial or maybe a naturally occurring structure that has been modified or created. The crew has claimed in several radio and television appearances that the dome’s surfaces resemble concrete in both texture and look. The massive pillar on top of which the dome rests might be constructed from a different material, suggesting that the anomaly as a whole might not be made up of one solid object but rather two distinct pieces, with the dome resting on top. If this is the case, who or what might have added the dome to the main pillar? Additionally, when we refer to a pillar, we mean one that is around 180–190 feet thick.
Dennis Sberg remarks, “We went there twice, and the question mark is so much bigger today.
Since the region is a 180-meter-diameter circular plate, it was initially thought to be the earliest signs of a meteor.
However, there is a 1,500-meter track in bed till the topic, and they have also found perfect angles, walls with flawless surfaces, and voids that resemble interior passageways. Dennis sberg of the Ocean X-Team recalls, “When we got outside and saw the walls, which were straight and smooth, it was scary, like in a science fiction movie. The crew gently swam over the top of the item during the dive while peering below, where they saw the first of many bizarre sights. On top of the dome, which is 12 meters high from the ocean floor, are stone circles that resemble “fireplaces” made of hard, black, “nearly petrified,” burnt-looking stone that is a few inches in diameter and arranged in different ways like four or five pearls in a necklace. There is no way that the arrangement of the stones could have occurred naturally through weathering or even glacial because the stones seem to be set in distinct circular patterns.
One of the experienced divers who was utterly enthralled by what he saw was 47-year-old Stefan Hogeborn, who had completed 6000 dives throughout the course of his 20-year diving career. Stones don’t often fire, according to Hogeborn. I went down there to address questions, but I came up with even more questions, I can’t describe what we witnessed, he continued.
A weird hole in the top of the item is also discernible and depicted in some of the publicly available camera footage (see below). The hole’s diameter is estimated to be about 25 centimeters. We don’t yet know where it goes or what it’s intended to accomplish. When the crew visits the site again in two weeks, it is anticipated that this aspect will be further examined.
The Road or Route That Leads to the Object
There appeared to be 1000+ meters of what appeared to be skid tracks or a disturbed seabed region leading to the item in the initial sonar images. The dive crew claims that the item now seems to be at the end of what can only be characterized as a “runway” or “downhill route” that is flattened at the bottom. The site’s ridge steadily rises from the bottom to a height of around 8 meters over the surrounding bottom, according to co-founder Peter Lindberg. In his opinion, the ridge is likewise constructed of softer material than the pillar and the dome.
The second occurrence
The second unusual anomaly, which is remarkably unexplored, is located around 200 meters distant. The crew identified the object in the early sidescan sonar photos as having a “gothic church window” form. This item, like the main anomaly, has a region of disturbed seabed or what may be a ridge going up to it. The divers simply ran out of time to dive on the second anomaly since they were so awestruck by the primary anomaly. The opportunity to finally investigate this should arise on the return journey in two weeks.
The second anomaly has a genuine chance of providing information on the primary object’s origin and characteristics.
Remote viewers were accurate.
Several remote viewers described the anomaly in “blind” sessions where they were only given the target reference number, several weeks before the second expedition began. The OceanX expedition’s first discoveries have validated several stunning parallels and specifics that the remote viewers astonishingly anticipated.
One of the observers from a distance described the anomaly as “very large,” “light grey,” “looks like cement color,” and “like a dam, but it’s not a dam, but it reminds me of a dam, just because it’s so big, massive, and huge, going down whenever you stood and you look down on it, on a dam and I can see how it just moves down away from me”
AOL “like a weapons bunker or missile silo tube, something like that, lot thicker than it ought to be or you would think,” was how another viewer described it. It was spherical, semi-buried, thick, and from above to below ground.
“The inside of the Millennium Falcon from The Empire Strikes Back is just so straight up and down.”
Regarding the “remote seeing,” Lindberg was equally astounded by the caliber of the data anticipated by the distant viewers: “Yes, the final person provides such a creepy like explanation. If we discover any more holes, perhaps he’s correct,” he added.
Processing 3D Multibeam sonar data requires some time. The first 3D photos from the area won’t be available to us until the end of next week. I have seen the raw data, though, and if the final results support what I have seen, we will have some very fantastic information to consider.
“More photos will be released, but not until the next mission will there be any photos taken by divers. The ROV films are now being worked on by the production business, and still images from them will be made public. Before the trip, the production firm that creates the documentary will decide which images will be made public.
The image below first generated a lot of confusion for many individuals when the first photographs were released by Swedish media, with many believing it showed the whole oddity.
After the bewilderment subsided, it was evident that the image below represented what is now known as “The Meringue.” The 200 foot wide main dome actually rests on top of the round, 4-meter wide structure currently known as the meringue. The mushroom dome’s TOP is seen when it seems to be the seafloor approaching the feature’s bottom. Another 40 feet are needed to reach the seafloor.
When Lindberg was questioned about the remotely operated vehicle’s resolution and accuracy, he responded, “Bad resolution, we have been sponsored by Ocean Modules with a “earlier” variant of the V8 Sii ROV. It shouldn’t have been possible to transport video and “real time sonar” pictures simultaneously across a 450 meter wire, but it did—at the price of the video’s quality. We’ll be given a newer model for the subsequent excursion, and the footage will most likely be of much higher quality at that point.
They are unaware of all we have seen with the ROV, he said. People have their own working hours, and it takes time to transfer material to a format they can use. However, I believe that there must be around 10 people working on this right now.
In a recent Facebook Q&A, co-founder Peter Lindberg was asked about the loose stones that make up the “fireplaces” sitting on top of the dome: “So have any scientific results been brought back from the samples yet Peter?” – Two loose stones that were lying on the circle have been found. The stones are currently being subjected to laboratory examinations. However, I believe we will discover that they are composed of quite common minerals. I think the circle must be pre-ice age because there are loose stones lying on it. When the ice thawed away, the stones fell out.
“I don’t know, but if I had to place a wager on anything, I would choose the chance that the circle dates back to the pre-ice period.”
The diving crew has noticed an odd phenomenon: electrical equipment consistently fails when they are near to the anomaly. This phenomenon may be due to a magnetic disturbance in the region.
“Why isn’t anything electronic functioning out there?” “The satellite phone also stopped working when we were above the object, but it started working again once we went away by about 200 meters, but it didn’t work when we got back over the item, so that’s kind of unusual, too.” Hogeborn, Stefan
I did not personally witness the “blackish” powder that the divers said had been drawn to the camera. Another thing is that when we were lying over the circle, we were unable to use the satellite phone, but when we moved only a few tenths of a meter, the phone functioned. It is a fact, albeit I’m not sure why. Additionally, when the diver tested the video camera’s lights on the surface before dive #2, they blew. Regardless, they made the decision to go with the video camera and attempt to utilize their regular lights to provide lighting for the footage. The video camera began to display a “error” warning on the little monitor as they plummeted. Pete Lindberg
“The diver repeatedly rebooted the camera before it eventually seemed to function. He recorded their plunge, but when he later watched the clip, nothing was there. The sonar on the ROV had to be restarted on a regular basis, and that was the only issue. Finally, it stopped working, so we kept using the video camera alone. After leaving the circle, we traveled to a wreck where we spent about 35 hours flying a ROV over it while the sonar continuously functioned. Magnetic anomalies—tell me about them!
“Someone inquired as to the temperature down there. The temperature should have been +4 degrees Celsius, but the divers’ thermometer read -1 while they were on top of the circle. Of course, the thermometer may have displayed an incorrect reading.
“We looked at our dive computer, the deep sea diver computer, and it read minus one degree that’s fairly cold for a diver; truly, it should be impossible to have that cold water; it literally freezes into ice at zero degrees, but that may be explained by the movement of the water,” said the diver. – Professional diver Stefan Hogeborn
“I can’t tell you the whole story until I get all the information. Even on my end, everything is all conjecture right now. I have not even scratched the surface yet, let alone considered if it could be hollowed.
Before it is too late to get to the place, we still have a few months. However, it appears that this will be our final voyage. I believe that a professional scientific team need to take over and conduct an actual scientific expedition there. We are only wreck hunters looking to learn more about what we have found, after all.
Is it possible to bring it to the fore?
Lindberg was quick to reply emphatically, “God no! ” when asked if it was possible to raise the item to the surface. It must weigh a ton, perhaps thousands of tons.
The Grooves / Straight Lines
Large and astonishingly straight grooves or lines may be seen in the structure in the original sonar photos. Lindberg quickly corrected a Facebook group member who had assumed that the grooves were just a few tens of centimeters deep, saying, “No, the graves are more like 1-1,5 meter broad and 0,5-1,5 meters deep.” Later, he remarked, “The lines may have formed naturally, but they appear to have been artificially induced.
Peter Lindberg shares his thoughts
A few days ago co-founder of the OceanX Team Peter Lindberg popped into the OceanX Facbook page for an impromptu question and answer session which was utterly fascinating.
Hello friends, I have not written anything here in a while, can maybe be explained by the fact that I have really been out there… I will drop you some of my believes:
1. I do not believe that the circle is a wreckage of an flying craft from WWII till recent time (or from some thousands of year back for that matter).
2. I do not believe the circle is a wreckage of any kind of known floating vessels from the past or from modern time.
3. I do not believe the circle is a construction made by someone after the ice age (submarine bases etc included).
4. I do believe the surface of the circle is made of mineral.
5. I do believe that the surface looks like concrete through the ROV camera but I do not believe it’s made of concrete.
6. I do believe that the very strait lines and angular formations we can see on the side scan sonar image from last year really excists. The odd thing is that I thought, before this expedition that when we could get close these shapes maybe should appear not being so straight as on the side scan sonar image, in reality they are even straighter! It really looks like constructed parts on the circle.
7. I do believe it might have been volcanic activity in the area and even on (or in) the circle after the ice age, or before, but then it do not fit with what we know about the ice age.
8. I do believe that the circle “rests” on top of what looks like an pilar of rock, raising approx 8 meters above the surrounding bottom. The circle it self appears to be approx 4 meters thick. In other words, the top of the circle raises 12 meters above the surrounding bottom.
9. I do believe we must find out on the next expedition if the circle and the pillar are fixed in one piece or if they are separated in some way.
10. I do believe that the path, or the track, is a ridge raising slowly up from the bottom to a height of approx 8 meters above the surrounding bottom. I also believe that the ridge is made of softer material than the pillar and the circle.
“What I do not believe because I know, is the fact that we found a round hole approx 25 cm in diameter going straight into the surface of the circle, how odd is not that? How deep? No idea, we just saw it for some seconds before we decided to back off to preserve the visibility for the divers that was going down later on. They did not find the hole though. It might be some more holes, at this moment we do not know.” – Well some comments on that before I continue with some more believes.
