    Swedish divers have found a disc-shaped, 747-sized object under the Baltic Sea. There is another, smaller one nearby. Both of them seem to have drag marks next to them, almost as if they had been moving and then crashed on the ocean floor. They won't be able to look into them further until May, but I'm really interested in finding out what they are. I doubt that they're UFOs or anything, though.

    why can't they look further until May? If they can see them now why not look further, they got better things to do?
    I mean I know the ice and all but if the divers can get there now then they can get a closer look at it now they can break the ice
    Right before they said I thought that totally looks like the Millenium Falcon

    ITS A CONSPIRACY! The wait time gives them enough time to cover it up :p 
    Anyway, 747 sized disk shaped objects? Sounds interesting, I can't wait to hear what they are.

    Well, the object was just discovered. I assume that in order for them to investigate it further, they need to deal with all sorts of permits and they need to gather up the right equipment.

    They mentioned in the vid that they're waiting for calmer waters.

    I think they said it has to do with waiting for better weather.

    They physically can't see them now, they used Sonar.

    For the same reason the American team can't check their wreck with silver on it - The sea is too tough this time of year for diving.

    Pretty cool! Of course, by the time they get a better look at whatever is down there, I'll probably have forgotten all about it.

    Isn't this how Sphere started? Or, at the very least, that episode of SeaQuest with the aliens...

    Proper term is USO, because the F in UFO stands for Flying.
