• Beatriz Villarroel of Stockholm University in Sweden is one of the authors of a recent study published in The Astronomical Journal about the discovery of a hundred or so blinking lights in space as well as number of vanishing and reappearing objects spotted among the stars which are puzzling researchers. According to the study paper, “The implications of finding such objects extend from traditional astrophysics fields to the more exotic searches for evidence of technologically advanced civilizations”.

• The scientists examined images of the sky dating as far back as the 1950s. They compared them with modern sky surveys looking for physical indicators including stars that apparently vanished from the Milky Way. Villarroel noted that, “Finding an actually vanishing star – or a star that appears out of nowhere would be a precious discovery and certainly would include new astrophysics beyond the one we know of today.”

• Dying stars will change very slowly to become a white dwarf, or will die with a sudden explosion as a supernova. A “failed supernova” is what happens when a very massive star collapses into a black hole without sending out any kind of explosion and vanishes. But failed supernovas are very rare. A vanishing star would likely indicate some other process entirely.

• Non-natural explanations include intelligent alien lasers for communication between stars, or a Dyson sphere which is a structure that alien civilizations build around a star to harness its energy. The scientists believe the anomalies likely originate from “natural, if somewhat extreme, astrophysical sources.”

number of vanishing and reappearing objects have been spotted among the stars are puzzling the researchers attempting to understand what they are.

Scientists believe the lights likely originate from “natural, if somewhat extreme, astrophysical sources”.

However, have yet to find any explanation after discovering one hundred of the strange lights.

Whatever scientists find it likely to change our understanding of space, with astronomers announcing the research could potentially usher in a “new astrophysics”.

The study’s authors wrote in The Astronomical Journal: “The implications of finding such objects extend from traditional astrophysics fields to the more exotic searches for evidence of technologically advanced civilisations”.

The scientists examined publicly available images of the sky dating as far back as the 1950s, such as old military sky catalogues.

They compared those historical observations with modern sky surveys looking for physical indicators including stars that apparently vanished from the Milky Way.

Baltic Sea Anomaly: Breakthrough at Suspected ‘Underwater UFO’ – ‘Compass Went Berserk!’

by Joey Miller                        July 11, 2019                        (express.co.uk)

• Ocean X Team first discovered the Baltic Sea anomaly (depicted above) in 2011 while hunting for shipwrecks. On June 8th the team returned to the site with a remotely-operated vehicle (ROV). They found another object there in the Bothnia region of the Baltic Sea, which they dubbed ‘Anomaly 2’ – a huge “monolith” and a “slab” – and were stunned when their compasses “went berserk”. Moments later, the team discovered another unexpected item at the site which they believe could be a crashed UFO.

• Peter Lindberg, the Swedish explorer leading the group, said that the poor visibility there at the bottom of the sea, and their compasses malfunctioning, made it very difficult to pinpoint their location.

• A statement from led by, said: “It was to understand where the ROV were because of the terrible visibility and because of the compass that went berserk. Finally the image cleared and the group could begin investigating what they assumed was the “monolith” or “slab” identified in earlier operations. Later when they got back and analyzed their video footage, they realized they had not been investigating the “monolith” or the “slab” and had instead discovered a collection of inexplicable stone “walls” buried in the ocean floor. “The surface between the ‘walls’ are buried beneath 200mm of sediment but it seem to be hard, straight and smooth. The ‘walls’ are sticking up maybe about 200mm above the sediment. They believe, like the other discoveries at the site, that the rectangular object could be man-made.

• The site has intrigued conspiracy-hunters since it was discovered – with inexplicable technical problems plaguing anyone who tries to investigate. Stefan Hogerborn, a professional diver with Ocean X, said, “Anything electric out there, and the satellite phone as well, stopped working when we were above the object. Then when we got away about 200 meters, it turned on again.”

• Team leader Lindberg stated, “I think it is very odd in its shape. It is tough to give an explanation as to what it might be exactly.” “I have been the biggest skeptic, I was kind if prepared for finding just stone. For me it has been an amazing experience.” “Whatever it is, it is something we do not usually find in nature sitting in the dark cold depths of the Baltic Sea.”

• Volker Bruchert, an associate professor of geology at Stockholm University, said: “My hypothesis is that this object, this structure was formed during the Ice Age many thousands of years ago.” The object could be at least 140,000 years old.

 

Ocean X Team, who first discovered the anomaly in 2011, have found another huge object in the Bothnia region of the Baltic Sea. The team, who discovered the anomaly while hunting for shipwrecks, returned to the site on June 8 with a remotely-operated vehicle (ROV). They lowered the ROV at ‘Anomaly 2’, a huge “monolith” and a “slab” – and were stunned when their compass “went berserk” – an inexplicable machine failure that has previously occurred while investigating the site.

Moments later, the team were again shocked when the their vehicle discovered another unexpected item at the site, which alien-hunters believe could be a crashed UFO.

A statement from the group, led by Swedish explorer Peter Lindberg, said: “It was very difficult to understand where the ROV were because of the terrible visibility and because of the compass that went berserk.

“The compass was living its own life and the tether was snagged all the time.”

Finally the image cleared and the group could begin investigating what they assumed was the “monolith” or “slab” identified in earlier operations.

The team then had to return to shore due to fuel issues.

However, when analysing the footage later they realised they had not been investigating the “monolith” or the “slab” and had instead discovered a collection of inexplicable stone “walls” buried in the ocean floor.
