On June 11 of 2011, nine professional divers from the Swedish Ocean X Team dove 85 meters to bottom of the Baltic Sea, amid several known shipwrecks, searching for old bottles of Champagne which could get a good price at auction.

They were puzzled to find a large circular object almost 200 feet in diameter. Guesses as to its purpose have ranged from it being a crashed UFO to a Cold War submarine base.

Described as being shaped like “a huge mushroom” and rising 13 feet off the sea floor, recent dives by the professional Swedish Ocean X Team have revealed several other strange features – and “ALL” of their electronic equipment was repeatedly disabled as they swam directly over it.

Here is the latest report from the Ocean X Team.

The Ocean X Team dove down to the circle-shaped object in the Baltic Sea and met something they never experienced before. First they thought it was just stone or a rock cliff, but after further observations the object appeared more as a huge mushroom, rising 3-4 meters/10-13 feet from the seabed, with rounded sides and rugged edges. The object had an egg shaped hole leading into it from the top, as an opening. On top of the object they also found strange stone circle formations, almost looking like small fireplaces. The stones were covered in something resembling soot.

“During my 20-year diving career, including 6000 dives, I have never seen anything like this. Normally stones don’t burn. I can’t explain what we saw, and I went down there to answer questions, but I came up with even more questions “, says Stefan Hogeborn, one of the divers at Ocean X Team.

The path to the object itself can be described as a runway or a downhill path that is flattened at the seabed with the object at the end of it.

“First we thought this was only stone, but this is something else. And since no volcanic activity has ever been reported in the Baltic Sea the find becomes even stranger. As laymen we can only speculate how this is made by nature, but this is the strangest thing I have ever experienced as a professional diver”, continues Peter Lindberg, one of the founder Ocean X Team.

Right now, scientists are examining samples from the circle-shaped object, and experts in sonar imaging are processing data from the ship to hopefully shed more light over the mysterious object.
