Says who ?

As I have said earlier on this thread, I spent 16 years of my life fishing for crab and lobster, picking up buoys of this size, in tide like this. On average we would pull 600 pots a day, and our season would last year-round.  I have seen this scenario, as videoed, maybe over 100,000 times. That buoy is acting EXACTLY how it should be acting if it was anchored to the seabed in some tide. You may want to see some wake at the front and sides, but it doesn't happen like that. Indeed, on some tidal cycles when the current pulls so strongly that a buoy is underwater, the wake will appear several yards behind it.

Let me explain better what is happening in the video - imagine a clock-face where the tide is running from 9.00 to 3.00, with the buoy anchored in the centre. The yacht is travelling from 4.30 to 10.30. as it heads across the clock-face, the current running from left to right will push it down onto the buoy. As the boat closes with the buoy, the crew assume the buoy is moving, but it is not  -  the boat is. As the boat passes the buoy the buoy itself seems to "move" round the stern. At this stage the woman at the helm goes hard to starboard, you can see the wake clearly moving to one side - at this stage the buoy seems to accelerate but in reality the boat is now going 6.00 to 12.00, and is now going down-tide, away from the buoy.

I would assume, from the crackily radio reception, that the interview in the video takes place well away from Sweden  -  but still somewhere in European waters because of the way the crew are dressed. In some ways this would make sense since (1) there is little tidal movement in coastal Swedish waters and so the crew may have been very unaccustomed to seeing this scenario, and (2) almost anywhere south of Denmark the chances of encountering tidal currents increase.

There is no USO, no sub and no fish involved in this video. It is almost certainly a white buoy, as used by a pleasure-boat, which is marking an anchor on the sea-bed which the pleasure-boat crew have been unable to raise due to the tide. At slack water, I bet they returned and pulled both the buoy and anchor up.

I trust this guy's opinion because his avatar is a fish. Fish avatar says not a USO = case closed imo.

I have an interest in UFO's and USO's but I'm not going to make that leap and say it's E.T. or a buyou. Needs further investigating.

Its a tuna that got away. The "orb" is the "bobber". Went under the boat trying to free itself. Could be 40 feet of heavyweight line between the poor guy's mouth and the float.

Imo.

At their very core, it seems each of God's religions' are "divine". That always fosters "divinely inspired" and now man is involved for the better. Then "divinely probable" gets added to "divinish~ly" suspect and flat out "I just don't like it when" and all books from God go downhill.

Looks like a white globe doing extraordinary manoeuvre's within the water, maybe it's a new species of fish. Just as plausible as the OP title.

Where it states "For official use only" - gently rub a white wax candle over the area indicated.

I love this line - A swiftly moving white orb was spottted chasing a boat in the ocean off the coast of Sweden.  :lol:

What in the world this has to do with UFOs and ET I will never know... If anything I think it shows just how much faith that is needed in this field called UFOology.

While this could well be explained by a number of conventional theories, Hazzard you should really be ashamed of yourself.

Some folks may not know what a USO is, but I've been watching you post long enough now to know that you know what it is and what it means.

The acronym 'USO' for those unaware, stands for 'unidentified submerged/submersible object', just as the term 'UFO' stands for 'unidentified flying object'.

The title USO was entirely appropriate for this video.  Just as the title UFO is applicable to objects in the sky before the point of identification.

Pseudo-skeptics be informed, this tactic of constantly abusing OPs who post honest questions does nothing more effective than reflect negatively upon you.

Congrats Bouncer on a terrific find.  This might well turn out to be something conventional, (a buoy being pulled by a marine animal, or by another vessel) however I personally have never seen anything like it before, and I thank you for bringing it to our attention.  Bouncer, for those of us out here who are actually investigating these cases, even examples that begin as 'unidentified' and are established as 'terrestrially caused' are helpful and educational.  

From a scientific point of view, one begins with a hypothesis, and then tests that hypothesis against the data set available pertaining to the case.

You've done that here, please don't allow negative responses to deter you from continuing along this path of honest inquiry.

Well met sir/mam, and have a wonderful day.

Could it be the dreaded swamp gas again?  What about plasma?  A weather balloon?  Is it Venus?  Must be one of these culprits surely!

It seems to me that this USO is actually an ISO (Identified Submerged Object). Sometimes the "unknown" turns out to be of a very earthly origin. One of the key parts of the scientific method is attempting falsification of any hypothesis (ie, looking for prosiac explanations). I'd say this particular mystery has been solved.

Look directly behind the white orb.  It looks like tentacles.  I think it is an octopus, or something int that family.  It is moving very fast, but you can see the pumping action just behind the orb.  You can actually make out the shape of an octopus.

Where is the connection to space or ET? We see something not only on earth, but underwater, a little out of the ordinary, and some point at the sky. How does that work? Where is the connection to the stars? Why is this Aliens? When was it tracked on RADAR as leaving the atmosphere, let alone the water?


I would say this is considered by some to be an alien, because many are too lazy to have a think and just point at their new Gods whenever they see something a little bit different. I find it a very sad state of affairs. I do not understand why some people think anything and everything new to them is Aliens. Humans are certainly very accomplished drama queens.

Quite terrestrial indeed, a tethered radio-communications line from a submerged Submarine.
