Sonar Anomaly Discovered Off North Carolina Coast Sparks UFO Debate

• A strange sonar anomaly, now known as ‘Big Dipper Anomaly’, has been discovered off of the North Carolina coast. On Wednesday June 27th the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) sent a research ship, Okeanos Explorer, to depths of 13,124 feet to resolve the mystery. The actual location is being kept secret. NOAA live-streamed the exploration on its website and social media platforms.
• Conspiracy theorists suspect that the anomaly could be an undersea structure built and occupied by extraterrestrials using highly advanced technology. They point to a video released by the U.S. Navy/To The Stars Academy in March 2018 of a UFO streaking across the Atlantic Ocean off of the U.S. East Coast as evidence that extraterrestrials live in the oceans.

• [Editor’s Note] This anomaly could be anything, or nothing. But the news coverage of it shows how accepted the idea of UFOs and extraterrestrial beings has become in our cultural zeitgeist.
The Charlotte Observer says: “NOAA has not been afraid to notch up suspense about the area, noting it could be “an archaeology site, a geological formation or otherwise.” It’s anybody’s guess what “otherwise” means, but UFO enthusiasts might be tingling with ideas.
Live Science.com says: “The ROV dives are helping scientists understand the “diversity and distribution of deepwater habitats in this region,” NOAA said. However, aliens and unknown shipwrecks don’t seem to be a part of that underwater world, at least not yet.”
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has started an expedition to resolve the mystery surrounding a strange sonar anomaly discovered off North Carolina coast. On Wednesday, NOAA’s Ship Okeanos Explorer was sent diving to determine whether the anomaly was the result of a possible shipwreck or rock formation.
Geologic Structure Or Ancient Remnants?
While carrying out the research, the NOAA live streamed the exploration on its website and social media platforms. The NOAA revealed that their exploration vehicle has reached depths of 820 to 13,124 feet.
The location in which the researchers spotted the anomaly is now kept under the wraps by NOAA. However, on Wednesday evening, NOAA made it clear that the anomaly spotted what is now known as ‘Big Dipper Anomaly’ appeared to be geologic in origin.
Conspiracy Theorists Put Forward Alien Theory
In the meantime, conspiracy theorists have joined the party, and they strongly claim that advanced aliens may be living in the depths of the ocean. As per UFO buffs and alien enthusiasts, extraterrestrial beings have built shelters in ocean depths, and they have that advanced technology to strive in the harsh oceanic conditions.
Some conspiracy theorists argue that the video of an unidentified object being trailed by a US Navy Jet above the ocean is an indication that extraterrestrial beings are living in oceans. This video released by Pentagon following the disclosure of the ‘ Advanced Aviation Threat Identification Program’ (AATIP)’ shows a bizarre flying object streaking across the sky defying all the laws of physics.
