They know they're onto something big. If only they knew what that something was.

A group of treasure hunters based in Stockholm, using sonar, has found a strange disc-shaped object on the floor of the Baltic Sea between Sweden and Finland. From above, it looks a bit like the Millennium Falcon of "Star Wars" fame. It's large -- 197 feet in diameter -- and it's in about 275 feet of water. Leading to (or from) it is a churned-up track on the sea floor of about 1,600 feet.

"We need to know what we've found," said Peter Lindberg of Ocean Explorer, the group that made the sonar sweep while looking for more conventional shipwrecks. "Media has been speculating about everything from UFOs to Russian spaceships."

What are the most realistic possibilities? "Let us put it like this: we have tried a lot of theories," Lindberg wrote in an email to ABC News. "The list is getting shorter and shorter with options, so for now we do not really know. We do not have anything that speaks more for one option or the other."

The treasure hunters would like to explore the wreck -- if it is a wreck -- with a small submarine, but they don't have the money to bring one in. If it were one of the conventional ships they've looked for in the past, they would hope to find gold or silver, but in this case they don't know what's actually there.

So they are talking to TV production companies, hoping one will fund them and make a documentary about their work. In the meantime, they are keeping the precise location of their find a secret, and waiting for spring and warmer weather.

"We are determined to successfully complete our mission of finding out what's at the bottom of the Baltic Sea," said Lindberg.


Not really, but it does look like it. What could it be?

That actually does look a lot like the Millenium Falcon. I call scam, especially since they mentioned they needed funding.

It's clearly a rock or a mistake in the program.

I believe at that size they just call them "cheddars".
Who wrote the blood and water chapter anyway? Probably some surly dad, only child, thirty cats.

They obviously took the escape pod. 'Cause that's what it's for: escaping.

They got rid of those before they were sucked into the first death star.

Considering that Star Wars happened a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away, I guess it's feasible that they perfected intergalactic travel and crash landed since then.
