Some Claimed the Baltic Sea Anomaly was a UFO Resembling the Millennium Falcon From Star Wars

In 2011, a sonar image of a sea floor anomaly was captured by treasure hunters Peter Lindberg, Dennis Åberg and their Swedish "Ocean X" diving team in the Baltic Sea. Because of its unusual features, speculation ran wild as to its origins going as far as to suggest that it was a UFO on account of its resemblance to the Millennium Falcon from Star Wars. Others suggested it might be a giant mushroom or a lost city.

According to an article published in, some experts suggest the 61-metre-wide and eight-metre-tall circular object is a Nazi anti-submarine device or a battleship gun turret. A sample studied by geologist Steve Weiner rules out the possibility of it being a natural formation.

It is not the size of the object that baffles Peter Lindberg the most but the signal that seems to emanate from it. This is what he had to say about the inexplicable communications: “We turned off all instruments, and everyone on board turned off their cellphones. Then we found a signal, 40 megahertz strong, coming from nearby. But the nearest land — a lighthouse — where you might find such a signal is 20 nautical miles away. And our equipment can only measure 2, maybe 3, kilometers (about 1.5 miles) away.”

This is what Volker Bruchert, an associate professor of geology at Stockholm University, had to say about it in an interview with Life's Little “My hypothesis is that this object, this structure was formed during the Ice Age many thousands of years ago.” However, this conclusion was not based on studying the actual object but on the area around it.

Though scientists suggest it is a huge glacial deposit, the whole thing continues to be shrouded in mystery as no sponsors are stepping forward to fund further exploration.
