Baltic anomaly - is it a Nazi secret weapon ?

Some scientists believe the anomaly could be a WWII weapon designed to thwart enemy submarines.

Consisting of a concrete base covered in wire mesh, the object could have been deployed by the Germans during the war in an effort to disorient ships and submarines. If this turns out to be true then the find represents an important discovery in the field of historical warfare.

Divers have been investigating the site of the anomaly on the Baltic Sea floor since the beginning of June after it was picked up on scans by the Ocean Explorer research vessel team last year. Having been billed as a 'crashed UFO' for some weeks in newspaper headlines the expedition and its findings have been the subject of much debate and controversy since the find was first announced.

"The so-called Baltic Sea UFO may in fact be a secret Nazi weapon from World War 2 designed to thwart British and Russian submarines and aircraft in the area."

Yes, actually it appears that there're some news: I don't know what to think. One thing for sure, they're terrific sellers! Thanks to the visibility they gained through the Baltic Anomaly, they had the chance to make a deal with the Kuna Yala indians in Panama, that will allow them, for the first time in modern history, to dive in Panamanian waters and locate treasures. Those waters are full of ship-wrecks dating from the 16th century, loaded with gold and silver from South America. It's estimated that they're worth $60 bi... [More]

See that they haven't invested in decent camera's yet. Why are most of the pictures so blurry? I left the FB group ages ago as I was sick of people drawing flying saucers in the shape of the object.
