A mysterious object at the bottom of the Baltic Sea, which bears a resemblance to the Millennium Falcon from Star Wars, is now being linked to a possible Nazi device according to the Russian newspaper Pravda.
An artist’s rendition (below video) shows how similar the object is to the ship from Star Wars.
Retired Swedish submarine officer Anders Autellus said that concrete structures were built as underwater traps by Germany to block sonar from Soviet submarines to navigate in the Gulf of Finland during the war, the Swedish newspaper Expressen reported.
Peter Lindberg, captain of the Ocean Explorer, and his co-researcher Dennis Asberg found the object in June of 2011. After the video went viral, the object was speculated to be possibly of alien origin, cropped stone or a sunken Russian ship.
The two returned to the site in June to get a closer look according to the Huffington Post and samples were collected.
Volker Bruchert, an associate professor of geology at Stockholm University, hypothesized that the object came from the Ice Age, reports lifeslittlemysteries.com.
Now the Baltic Sea anomaly will be the subject of an upcoming documentary, “The Mystery Beneath.”

A feature on the floor of the Baltic Sea that was discovered last summer by Swedish treasure hunters is making headlines once again.
The latest media coverage draws upon an hour-long radio interview with Peter Lindberg, head of the Ocean X Team (which made the "discovery"), in which Lindberg delivers a string of cryptic and titillating statements about the "strange" and "mysterious" seafloor object his team has been exploring for a year.
Lindberg discusses various possibilities for what the object might be:
Atlantis is a 'mythical' underwater city referred to in ancient 'legends.'
Lindberg acknowledges that the object could instead be a natural formation, such as a meteorite that penetrated the ice during the Ice Age, or an underwater volcano; however, he gives the impression that scientists are baffled by it.
Geologists, for example, have supposedly told him the object "cannot be a volcano."
