Baltic Sea Anomaly
by Capers Jones
A company that locates and finds sunken ships recently turned up an unusual circular or oval formation in the Baltic Sea off the coast of Sweden on June 19, 2011. The discovery was made by the Ocean X diving team. An artist’s reconstruction is shown below:
The actual sonar image of the site is more ambiguous than the artistic reconstruction:
There seems to be a sort of cleared track way that runs for about 1000 feet leading to the structure. The object itself is about 200 feet across and seems to be resting on a short column as shown in another artistic rendering. The dome illuminated by a light is a creation of the artist and not part of the undersea structure:
The material from which the object is constructed is not yet known, although there are claims on the web that titanium has been found in unspecified quantities. A sonar image from directly over the object shows its actual appearance:
This object is still being investigated and will probably turn out to be a natural rock formation of some kind. The ambiguity of the structure and its resemblance to Han Solo’s Millennium Falcon from Star Wars has made the object a hot topic on UFO and paranormal web sites.
A google search using the phrase “Baltic Sea anomaly” will turn up quite a few reports on this structure, but no solid evidence as to what it is made from. However a spectroscopic analysis by Dr. Steve Weiner of the Weizmann Institute indicates the minerals limonite and goethite are the main components of the anomaly.

Another artistic reconstruction is shown below. For some reason a number of artists have been commissioned to create images of this structure, perhaps for commercial reasons:
The fact that the structure seems to be composed of natural minerals raises the odds of it being some kind of a natural rock formation, although an unusual one. At the present moment in 2014 there are apparently no funds for additional exploration of this object.
In order for this object to be of archaeological importance, several additional pieces of information are needed:
- The mineral composition of both the artifact and the column are needed. If they are of different materials the object might be a dolmen, and in fact the largest dolmen yet discovered.
- If the 1000 foot cleared area behind the artifact is due to some movement of the artifact itself, that would be quite significant. If it is coincidental then it adds nothing to the significance of the artifacts.
- If the artifact has any inner cavities or hidden structures that would be significant. An opening has been reported, but no details were provided.
As situation now stands the Baltic Sea object appears to be a large and unusual rock formation but otherwise nothing special.

PS HUGE metal structure under the BALTIC SEA
As eager as we humans are to explore other planets in our universe, there are still many unsolved mysteries that lie beneath our oceans, lakes, and rivers, 95 percent of which remain unexplored. In particular, scientists remain puzzled by a colossal circular object, which was discovered at a depth of 300 feet on the bottom of the Baltic Sea in 2011. It is now known as the “Baltic Sea Anomaly.”
Many theories abound as to what the gigantic structure might be, though it is believed to be at least 140,000 years old. According to Volker Bruchert, an associate professor of geology at Stockholm University, the object is “many thousands of years” old and dates back to the Ice Age.
Denis Asberg recalled: “We were really surprised and puzzled. We were thinking what is that we have found here. This is not a wreck. At that time we thought for sure there was a natural explanation.
“We wanted to look into it some more and decided to keep this totally quiet. We contacted geologists, marine biologists and when they said they had never seen anything like this, of course more thoughts were triggered.
“It could be something really awesome that we’ve found.”
While expecting to find stone, it was determined that the strange object was actually made of metal. When divers retrieved a sample, geologist Steve Weiner confirmed that it was made of “metals which nature could not reproduce itself.”
Strangely, all electronics on the Ocean X team’s boat died when they floated directly above the object and started working again once they moved off of where the object was located.
“Anything electric out there, and the satellite phone as well, stopped working when we were above the object,” said professional diver, Stefan Hogerborn.
“And then when we got away about 200 meters, it turned on again, and when we got back over the object it didn’t work.”
