The truth is out there, but it might be at the bottom of the ocean. Recently a group of shipwreck explorers were diving for just that reason, but they stumbled upon something perplexing. Some speculation say it could possibly be a UFO or Unidentified Flying Object. The team, while exploring greater than 80 meters down, came across some startling images. It's said the object is disc shaped and as big as a 747 airliner.
With news of this possible UFO in the Baltic Sea, Twitter ignited with buzz. People on the social media giant can't get enough of the story.

Team Leader Peter Lindberg said:
"I have been doing this for nearly 20 years so I have a seen a few objects on the bottom, but nothing like this, we had been out for nine days and we were quite tired and we were on our way home, but we made a final run with a sonar fish and suddenly this thing turned up."
On the run, the team used a side-scan sonar, with this tool they found a 60 meter in diameter disc shaped object with a tail-like protrusion measuring 400 meters long, then on a second pass they discovered a second object 200 meters away.
In the professional opinion of Lindberg's team, they say the objects are too big to have fallen off a ship or to even be part of a wreck, but they say it's anyone's guess as to what's down there.
Lindberg went on to say:
"We've heard lots of different kinds of explanations, from George Lucas's spaceship -- the Millennium Falcon -- to 'it's some kind of plug to the inner world,' like it should be hell down there or something, but we won't know until we have been down there."
Andreas Olsson, Sweden's Head of Archaeology at Maritime Museums says he is intrigued by the picture, but he remains a skeptic on what it could be. The problem with the picture is the reliability of one-side scanners, It makes it difficult to tell if it's a natural formation or something un-natural. Lindberg says the picture "isn't the best it could be", but the team plans to investigate further into the matter. If the mysery object doesn't turn out to be something awesome, still adrenaline junkies with money want to pay to get an up-close view via submarine.
