The Truth Is...Down There

They were looking for shipwrecks. Instead they found...this.
A 200ft.wide unidentified object (as big as a jumbo jet) at the bottom of the Baltic Sea between Sweden and Finland.
Swedish researchers Peter Lindberg and Dennis Asberg return this week to the site of the Baltic Anomaly, a 'something' they spotted on sonar last northern summer. At the time, Lindberg described the object as "a large circle, about 60m in diameter. You see a lot of weird stuff in this job, but during my 18 years as a professional I've never seen anything like this. The shape is completely round." Adding to the mystery, he saw evidence of scars or marks disturbing the environment nearby, suggesting the object somehow moved across the ocean floor to where his team found it. The discovery was news worldwide, with many speculating it was a crashed UFO.
Peter and Dennis:
quite calm about it all really
Lindberg, captain of the Ocean Explorer: "We don't know if it's a natural phenomenon, or an object. It just turned up on the monitor." The Ocean Explorer crew includes 13 researchers and a Swedish TV crew to document the event. The hunters will use sonar to make 3D images of the bottom of the sea. They'll send down deep-sea divers and a camera robot, and take samples from the sea bed to measure for toxicities and radiation.
Lindberg's willing to speculate: it could be meteor debris, a naturally-occurring gas well, perhaps the remains of a Russian warship from the late C19th.: "But if it's not man-made, and was made by another form of intelligent life, it would be very lucky!"
That would be the understatement of the MILLENNIUM!

PS: 18 June 2012 - OK, so it's probably NOT a UFO...but what IS it?
