Cylon Raider or algae? Swedish booze hunters may have made the UFO find of the century
A SWEDISH team searching for booze on the bottom of the ocean may have found a UFO instead. The Ocean Explorer team made several million dollars back in 1997 when it located the wreck of the trade ship Jonkoping.
On board was a consignment of 1907 Heidsick Monopole Gout Americain, the corks of which were popped late last year after wine buffs snapped up the bottles for around $13,000 apiece.
That's kept Ocean Explorer team leader Peter Lindberg in the deep-sea suds search business ever since, but nothing he's found has caused as much controversy as a circle that turned up on a sonar survey on June 19.
Mr Lindberg didn't say much about it at the time apart from releasing the image and ruling out theories that it may be a land mine or algae bloom.
Obviously, that didn't generate enough attention, so now, after further examination, Mr Lindberg has gone public with some more details about the dimensions of the disc.
At 87m down, between Sweden and Finland, they saw a large circle, about 60 feet in diameter," he told local media last week.
"You see a lot of weird stuff in this job but during my 18 years as a professional I have never seen anything like this.
"The shape is completely round … a circle."
Mr Lindberg said the team has also noted what they say could possibly be tracks running some 300m up to where the disc lies.
The team claims the tracks show the object has moved, either on or since settling to the ocean floor.
Six of the nine-member team were asleep in their bunks on-board the Ocean Explorer's ship at the time of the discovery, but the three watching the sonar "couldn't believe" what they were seeing.
Despite the promise of alien riches, Mr Lindberg said his team would not attempt to investigate the disc.
"It is not in our sphere of interest to go for this object, since it might be nothing," he said.
"We cannot afford spending funds just to have a look at it, even if it might be a new Stonehenge."
"It is up to the rest of the world to decide what it is."
Burned organic material on Baltic anomaly rock sample
Preliminary lab tests made by different experts at the Weizmann Institute of Science and the Institute of Archaeology in the Tel-Aviv University (Micromorphology of Archaeological Sediments and Infrared Spectroscopy) shows that a piece of basalt rock that was recovered from the circular shaped anomaly in the Baltic Sea has burned organic material on it. Further analyzes will hopefully show what kind of material it might be, and even try to date it.

witness.: I was at Gerdau steel mill. I saw it, but I was one of three. I only saw lights. It was dark. We thought it was a helicopter, but unlike any helicopter we had ever seen. It has 8 lights. I asked everyone whey they thought it was. They all said, they wer'nt

witness.: sure what it was. So, I just put it down as an anomaly, but the other would not let it go. Turns out that I saw second to see it.

witness.: It was a night, so we couldn't see anything but the triangle shaped lights. After careful consideration, I'm sure that what I saw was an anomaly. It was a whether balloon for sure or maybe a swamp gas event. Their is a swamp in Colonial Heights.

witness.: It could have been Venus. Eight lights can form a ball and look like Venus. But, I'm sure now it was a helicopter out of Ft. Lee, but I do not blame Ft. Lee. I'm sure it was just an oversight. Just a clarification, The lights were Diamond shaped.[i

witness.: Please forget this sighting. I am convinced that nothing happened, I have been under stress, and my testimony is unreliable at best, Sorry for the confusion. And, please forgive me.

witness.: I should have never made this report. I was under UN-due stress. my father had just recently died.

CMR: It's hard to tell what happened to me in so few words. I was heading home. It was 6:11 p.m. - the next thing I knew it was 6:29 p.m and I had no idea where I was. I was heading in the opposite direction from my way home and it ws 6:30....

CMR: I have had a previous experience with a Being of Light who spoke to me 'without speaking' and I answered.. without speaking. I don't know if that event and this lost time - plus coming to going in the wrong direction from my home - are related.
Nov 13, 2014 1:37:29 GMT 1
CMR: It felt like when the Being of Light visited me. That time it also felt like no time had elapsed but clocks dont'lie! And, ever since I saw the Being of Light I've felt there's a mission I should be doing. I often wonder if I am supposed to share my visit.
