The so-called Baltic Sea "UFO" expedition have shrouded themselves in mystery, issuing only cryptic news updates and short micro-blogging posts which tell nothing more than the basics but promise some kind of startling revelation as early as this week. What could it be?
The team of quasi-treasure hunters mixed with scientific researchers is aboard an exploration vessel anchored above the coordinates reported last year to be harboring a mysterious, circular object which has yet to be identified.
Sonar images of the object have been met with a wide range of explanations including the mundane (old Russian warship turrets) to the positively exotic (ancient alien spaceship) which only feed into the speculation.
The team of divers and scientists, lead by Peter Lindberg, is posting updates on their website, named after the current mission, the Ocean Explorer (or OceanX) which do little to clear up the mystery but go a long way at fueling speculation.
The team posted a brief news update on Thursday, claiming: "The divers are now down and investigating the circle and reports from the ship say they are really amazed. There is definitely something unusual hiding at the seabedÂ—a Mystery Beneath. More information and pictures will be released next week."
On Sunday, co-discoverer of the "Baltic Sea UFO", Dennis Asberg posted an iPhone update, cryptically reporting that, "Everything is top secret now because of the risks, hope you all understand this is no game. But the truth will be reported shortly."
Whatever that truth may be, it certainly has believers and non-believers alike anxious for any news at all. According to the team themselves, it should be any day now.
