Is the Baltic Sea anomaly a glacial deposit ?

The mysterious rocks found by Peter Lindberg's Ocean X team could be little more than glacial debris.

Lindberg himself continued to promote the mysterious nature of the discovery during a recent interview, suggesting that stair-like structures within the formation could be evidence of ancient construction. Divers investigating the scene have brought back samples of the rocks which have since been studied for clues in an effort to get to the bottom of the mystery.

"What has been generously ignored by the Ocean-X team is that most of the samples they have brought up from the sea bottom are granites and gneisses and sandstones," geology professor Volker Brüchert wrote in an email. "Because the whole northern Baltic region is so heavily influenced by glacial thawing processes, both the feature and the rock samples are likely to have formed in connection with glacial and postglacial processes."

"A feature on the floor of the Baltic Sea that was discovered last summer by Swedish treasure hunters is making headlines once again."

Seriously people, this rivals the face on mars. Stop wearing out your keyboards; this thing is not unnatural. Edit: Hello Mr. semicolon.

Especially if it looks that much like an artistic rendering. Now my theories changed to giant artistic aliens.

Last time there was an article that Baltic anomaly was a secret Nazi weapon, now it's about a glacial deposit. The latter one seems more likely to me.

Does not sound like a natural formation to me. http://thebalticanomaly.se/current-facts/

“It is unique!” caught my attention. If it’s natural, I’d naturally expect other similar deposits in the area. Are there any? Or it's natural for that type of deposit to look like that and to stick out, all alone?

Really Interesting.

I wonder, if its not anything unnatural why then does it affect all electrical equipment within close proximity?

OK, it's a UFO that crashed long ago on a glacier and got carried along (and chewed up in the process) by the glacier's ice and eventually deposited where it was found. Howzat?
