Divers exploring a mysterious object shaped like a UFO at the bottom of the Baltic sea – in fact something that looks surprisingly similar in shape to the Star Wars Millenium Falcon – have experience weird power cut-outs when they get within 200 metres of the domed object.
Covered in a layer of soot with what appears to be a long path-like runway behind it on the ocean floor, the 18 metres (60ft) wide object lays dormant on the sea bed.
“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.” said diver Stefan Hogerborn of the Ocean X team. Again, this is sounding suspiciously like a James Cameron film in the making.
Team member Dennis Åsberg believes that the team have made a unique discovery “I am one hundred percent convinced and confident that we have found something that is very, very, very unique.” said Åsberg.
