The Baltic Sea anomaly – another piece of the puzzle?
Remember the circle-shaped anomaly that was found by Swedish treasure hunters on the bottom of the Baltic Sea last year? At the time, several theories were proposed as to its origin (crashed UFO, Russian submarine trap, ancient temple grounds etc).
However, after making big headlines and being heavily promoted for a few weeks, interest in the anomaly quickly diminished when it became clear that it was simply a fancy rock formation.
UFOEyes’ take on the anomaly was, and still is, that it’s a piece of a meteorite that crashed not far from where the anomaly was found. This is what we wrote back in June last year:
So, it has now been confirmed that the “anomaly” is not of extraterrestrial origin. Or is it? Maybe, but not in the shape of an extraterrestrial craft. See, the characteristics of the “anomaly” would suggest that parts of the clay bottom has at some point solidified and turned into a cement like material. One theory is that this occurred when a meteorite hit the Earth’s crust.
Interestingly, not far from the supposed location of the “anomaly”, a large meteorite hit the Earth about 1000 million years ago. The bay of Lumparn in the Åland Islands is a 9 kilometer wide impact crater.
Now, just a couple of weeks ago, the Ocean X Team gets back to us with information about the stone samples they collected during one of their dives.
Now we have an answer from the sampling of the stone … stone has been exposed to a very high heat … 1200 degrees hot. This may mean that the whole object has had the temperature at some point. Note geologists say that there is no volcanoes there.
This is interesting and would suggest that the anomaly indeed could be more than glacial rocks that have been dragged across the ocean floor. So, let’s see — subjected to 1,200 degrees of heat, no volcanoes in the immediate area, not a UFO…
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again — it’s a slab of meteorite.
A meteor moving through space typically travels at speeds reaching tens of thousands of kilometers per hour. When the meteor hits the atmosphere, the air in front of it compresses incredibly quickly. When a gas is compressed, its temperature rises. This causes the meteor to heat up so much that it glows and re-entry temperatures can reach as high as 1,650 degrees Celsius.
This particular meteorite has a confirmed crash site not far from the anomaly and the anomaly itself has all the characteristics of a downed space rock.
It’s unclear whether we’ll ever find out for sure though. There was always plans to make a documentary and it’s now in its final production stages, but so far the Ocean X Team has shown a remarkable ability to come up with half-truths and vague statements to lure in unsuspecting believers to its small but devoted fan base.
As the saga continues, my prediction is that any answers given will slightly defy common sense and give rise to more questions — and more opportunities for the treasure hunters to make a buck.
