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.
barry: Hi mate, Mars is getting looked at quite a bit, trouble is there are 2 rovers, 1 one mars and the other in a desert on earth. what 'pictures' are we seeing?

uforn: Ive noticed, that's the problem baz, the video's and photo's etc never have links to the original images from NASA and most the time its not worth the effort searching the NASA archives for them.

uforn: Hi Bodysnatcher welcome to UFORN

Bodysnatcher: Thank you, though, i still feel a bit awkward being here. i have things i want to share that i've not really shared with anyone before.

uforn: I suspect your talking about a possible abduction ?
Sept 16, 2015 11:47:34 GMT 1
Bodysnatcher: i guess... maybe several while i was growing up near pensacola naval air station. i've even had weird marks/scars appear on my body that match what are supposedly abduction marks that others have gotten from supposed abductions.

barry: Hi Bodysnatcher, The abduction thread is very general, most people have 50%. Get your thoughts all together and post in the abduction thread, I would be happy to read about your experiences

barry: Evidence of water on mars.....Did I not mention something about fossels found in a dried up lake about a year ago? LOL! (Poss next announcment?)
Sept 28, 2015 18:25:55 GMT 1
uforn: I thought that was already known baz ?

barry: Nasa was announcing surface salt water in liquid form not frozen, it's a start...........
Sept 29, 2015 8:16:43 GMT 1
uforn: Yeah I thought it was known that there was liquid water, satellite images showed streaks that were there in the summer and gone in the winter, which could have only been caused by water, guess they have proved it now.

uforn: Hi baz just read the article and its pure speculation at best, I also cannot find the 109 page report from BEAMS. They are making their claims based on cryptic alien symbols & psychic researchers. Really? They need to get out more.

barry: Yeh! I know it's prob rubbish but there have been rumors and stories about the place going on for ages(I have heard most of them) but unfortunatly nobody will go on the record.Seen pictures too but they won't let me have them.....
