Baltic Sea Anomaly: What Is It and Why Does it Confound Scientists?

• Discovered in 2011 by Swedish divers Peter Lindberg and Dennis Asberg, the Baltic Sea Anomaly is a peculiar sonar image in the northern Baltic Sea, in the Gulf of Bothnia (near Sweden and Finland), measuring 210ft (70m) across. The anomaly appears roughly circular in shape, with two inlets and three prong-like portions. Some have suggested it looks like the Millennium Falcon spaceship from the Star Wars film series.  (see 1:48 minute video on the anomaly below)

• Some claim that the anomaly is a downed UFO. Others believe it to be a submerged World War 2 bunker, or a glacier remnant, or a perfectly natural geological formation. Others have suggested it could be a 14,000-years-old ancient temple built by a highly advanced civilization.

• Volker Bruchert, an associate professor of geology at Stockholm University, said, “My hypothesis is that this… structure was formed during the Ice Age many thousands of years ago.” “Possibly these rocks were transported there by glaciers.”

• A team of researchers known as the Ocean X Team reported that electronic devices used near the anomaly would mysteriously stop working. “Anything electric out there – and the satellite phone as well – stopped working when we were above the object,” said Ocean X researcher Stefan Hogerborn. “And then we got away about 200 meters and it turned on again, and when we got back over the object it didn’t work.”

• In 2017, an Israeli scientist who studied rock samples collected by Ocean X said the Anomaly contained unusual metals which could not have originated from natural geological processes. The Ocean X Team is adamant that the Baltic Sea Anomaly is not a natural structure. They’ve suggested that the government is holding back the truth of what the anomaly really is. “We have been fooled by our government before, and yes they do everything they can to ruin us.”

 

The incredibly bizarre phenomenon on the seabed of the Baltic Sea is one of the biggest mysteries of the 21st century. The Baltic Sea Anomaly is a peculiar sonar image snapped in the northern Baltic Sea, in the Gulf of Bothnia, in the year 2011. Due to its unusual shape and large measurements, roughly 210ft (70m) across, conspiracy theorists have claimed the anomaly is a downed UFO. Others have proposed the Baltic Sea Anomaly is a submerged World War 2 bunker, a glacier remnant or a perfectly natural geological formation. So, what is it?

What is the Baltic Sea Anomaly?

The Baltic Sea Anomaly was discovered in 2011 by a Swedish team of divers, dubbed Ocean X Team, who were searching the Bothnian Sea for sunken treasure.

The Gulf of Bothnia serves as a waterway bridging Sweden and Finland and flows into the Baltic Sea.

During a treasure-hunting escapade into the landlocked body of water, the divers snapped a bizarre sonar image at a depth of 300ft (100m) beneath the water.

The anomaly appears roughly circular in shape, with two inlets and three prong-like portions.

From a distance, it looks like a chunky E, although some have suggested it looks like the Millennium Falcon spaceship from the Star Wars series of films.

Due to the Anomaly’s bizarre shape, scores of conspiracy theorists have spent years trying to explain its supposed extraterrestrial origin.

Some have suggested the Anomaly is a 14,000-years-old ancient temple built by a highly advanced civilisation centuries ago.

Peter Lindberg and Dennis Asberg, who discovered the Anomaly, themselves were baffled by their incredible finding.
In an official Ocean X Team video uploaded to YouTube in December 2018, Mr Lindberg described the Anomaly as he first saw it.

He said: “One thing I find strange is that we have this hard surface but still we have a darker colour.

“If it is a hard surface it should have this white colour all over it but instead it looks like the bottom, which consists of clay and mud, which is very soft.

“The only hard surfaces we see are these thin lines, which are the corridors and the angular structures we have on the object.

“So this is something I want to find out – why it looks like this.”

China Makes Historic 1st Landing on Mysterious Far Side of the Moon

by Mike Wall                January 3, 2019                   (space.com)

• The list of ‘unexplored’ locales in our solar system just got a little shorter. China’s robotic (uncrewed) Chang’e 4 mission, which launched December 7th, touched down on the floor of the 115-mile-wide Von Kármán Crater Wednesday night (January 2nd), pulling off the “first-ever” soft landing on the lunar far side.

• Chang’e 4 (named after a moon goddess in Chinese mythology) will perform a variety of science work over the coming months to better understand the structure, formation and evolution of Earth’s ‘natural’ satellite. The lander features the Landing Camera, the Terrain Camera, the Low Frequency Spectrometer, and the Lunar Lander Neutrons and Dosimetry, which was provided by Germany. The rover has the Panoramic Camera, the Lunar Penetrating Radar, the Visible and Near-Infrared Imaging Spectrometer, and the Advanced Small Analyzer for Neutrals, which Sweden contributed.

• We already have good imagery of the far side of the Moon from above, thanks to spacecraft such as NASA’s Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter.) Chang’e 4’s observations could help researchers better understand why dark volcanic plains called “maria” cover much of the near side but are nearly absent on the far side. Chang’e 4 also carries a biological experiment which will track how silkworms, potatoes and Arabidopsis plants grow and develop on the lunar surface.

• “Congratulations to China’s Chang’e 4 team for what appears to be a successful landing on the far side of the moon.” said NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine. “This is a first for humanity and an impressive accomplishment!”

• All six of NASA’s crewed Apollo missions to the lunar surface touched down on the near side of the Moon. The far side is a much tougher target for surface exploration because the Moon will block direct communication with any landers or rovers there. To deal with this issue, China launched a relay satellite called Queqiao in May 2018.

• China launched the Chang’e 1 and Chang’e 2 orbiters in 2007 and 2010, respectively, and pulled off a near-side landing with the Chang’e 3 mission in December 2013. (Chang’e 4 was originally designed as a backup to Chang’e 3, so the hardware of the two missions is similar.) China also launched a return capsule on an eight-day trip around the moon in October 2014, known as Chang’e 5T1. China has ambitions for crewed lunar missions, but its human-spaceflight program is focused more on Earth orbit in the short term. The nation aims to have a space station up and running by the early 2020s.

[Editor’s Note]   Of course, this is not the “first-ever” soft landing on the far side of the Moon. The lunar far side is notorious for containing numerous human and alien bases, including the much-expanded Lunar Operations Command base. Thus, it is NASA disinformation that the far side of the Moon is an ‘unexplored’ locale. Beings have been “exploring” the cavernous Moon since it was placed in the Earth’s orbit around a half-a-billion years ago. This event is only a “first for humanity” insofar as NASA and the highly compromised deep state mainstream media are concerned.  (see 1:19 minute video of the Chinese mission below)

 

Humanity just planted its flag on the far side of the moon.

China’s robotic Chang’e 4 mission touched down on the floor of the 115-mile-wide (186 kilometers) Von Kármán Crater Wednesday night (Jan. 2), pulling off the first-ever soft landing on the mysterious lunar far side.

Chang’e 4 will perform a variety of science work over the coming months, potentially helping scientists better understand the structure, formation and evolution of Earth’s natural satellite. But the symbolic pull of the mission will resonate more with the masses: The list of unexplored locales in our solar system just got a little shorter.

The epic touchdown — which took place at 9:26 p.m. EST (0226 GMT and 10:26 a.m. Beijing time on Jan. 3), according to Chinese space officials — followed closely on the heels of two big NASA spaceflight milestones. On Dec. 31, the OSIRIS-REx spacecraft entered orbit around the near-Earth asteroid Bennu, and the New Horizons probe zoomed past the distant object Ultima Thule just after midnight on Jan. 1.

“Congratulations to China’s Chang’e 4 team for what appears to be a successful landing on the far side of the moon. This is a first for humanity and an impressive accomplishment!” NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine said via Twitter Wednesday night, after word of the milestone began circulating on social media.
