During the month of July, an ocean exploration team that was led by Swedish researchers found what some have said is a flying saucer sitting on the floor of the sea. Some photos from the discovery even show what looks to be skid marks behind the object, suggesting that it might have moved across the floor or crashed on it.
Experts speculated that the object might have been a glitch in the sonar of the expedition team. But, new reports surfacing from earlier this week have said that the team found a second object close by the first one. There was one thing missing as the rumors swirled across the internet; a picture of the second object.
The expedition was led by Peter Lindberg. Lindberg announced in late July that he discovered an interesting round object roughly 300 feet, or 91 meters, down on the ocean floor. The object was found in the Gulf of Bothnia, between Sweden and Finland. Lindberg added to the interest of the find by saying that he saw scars or marks that disturbed the environment close to the object, which could suggest that the object moved across the ocean floor.
To this day, the object has yet to be identified and many experts still question whether the sonar was accurate in the first place. Hanumant Singh, a researcher from the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute, said that the sidescan sonar used by Lindbergh to discover the object is not that reliable. Singh said that the sonar is used correctly to find sunken ships, which have a larger profile on the floor of the ocean, but it is less accurate for revealing flat, low formations.
Brooke Bowman, from CNN, said that the first unidentified object “is not on its own down there. The ocean explorer team also found another, smaller disc-shaped object nearby. Both show a rigid tail or drag marks more than 400 meters (about 437 yards) long. Their size and distinctive shape are generating some peculiar theories.”
Some theories about the object include it being Han Solo’s Millennium Falcon from ‘Star Wars,’ Atlantis, a crashed flying saucer, Russian warships, a marine version of a Stonehenge or an opening to another world inside the Earth. Sidescan sonar is known to manufacture false images but the announcement of a second image pretty much puts to bed the theory that two identical false images can be possible. The story takes an interesting turn when we found out that the image of the second object is a duplicate of the first object.
Lindberg explained, “I confirm that we have found two anomalies. We did find the other anomaly approximately 200 meters (about 219 yards) from the circular find at the same sonar run.” Lindberg then told reporters why his team has yet to release an image of the second object: “We decided not to expose that anomaly so much because there is a lot of disturbance on the sonar image when we passed it, so it’s very blurry. We can see it’s something but to an untrained eye it might just look like ‘pea soup.’”
Once images of the second object were released, we were able to see that the two objects do not look alike in the least bit. The new object resembles different types of food such as eggplant or a blueberry muffin that is growing its own head.
Lindberg has speculated that the two objects might be linked somehow:
“There is a chance that the two anomalies had been parts of the same body from the beginning. But at the same time it might mean nothing, it might be a coincidence.”
