Mystery object found on South Carolina beach


Posted on Saturday, 13 October, 2018 | Comment icon 17 comments

What exactly is this thing ? Image Credit: Facebook / Lowcountry Marine Mammal Network
A marine resource group has been attempting to identify a strange object that washed ashore earlier this month.
Found on the shoreline of Seabrook Island on October 4th, the mysterious object is reportedly comprised mainly of foam and does not contain any solid metal parts.

Some social media users have speculated that it could be a film prop from one of the recent Star Wars movies while others have argued that it is more likely to be a piece of fallen space debris.

It has also been suggested that it could be some sort of damaged marine buoy or pipeline floater.

As things stand however, no official explanation has been forthcoming.

What do you think it could be ?

Bits of UFOs just showing up in weird places. Why does reality always have to imitate Grand Theft Auto? So lazy.

I think it's one of Godzilla's orthopedic Toe Separators.

Good job on the solution, but it begs the question - if it's so relatively easy for us forum users to figure out, why is this even a story? Even if that's not exactly what it is, it's obviously man-made.

That's kind of a troubling question. It wasn't much of a mystery to begin with.

Looks kind of like a WW2 flotation device for a submarine net strung across the narrows somewhere, like they had at Pearl, or Scapa Flow. https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/e/e3/Royal_Navy_Vessels_Maintain_the_Boom_Defence_at_Scapa_Flow%2C_Scotland%2C_May_1943_A16572.jpg

At first I thought it was a part of one of those exhausts from a space shuttle
