(Newser) – Finally, a real reason to send conspiracy theory extremists to the bottom of the sea: A team of Swedish treasure hunters have uncovered what they think could be a UFO crash site in the Baltic Sea, reports Gizmodo. The 60-foot disc sits at the end of what appears to be 985-foot-long impact tracks in the Botnia Gulf between Sweden and Finland.

The team made the find some 285 feet underwater on June 19 using sonar equipment. "You see a lot of weird stuff in this job," says the team commander. "But during my 18 years as a professional, I have never seen anything like this. The shape is completely round… a circle." The team doesn't claim the object is an alien craft, but they're not sure it's a natural structure. The commander says it could be "a new Stonehenge."

Newser writer Tim Karan's phrase "conspiracy theory extremists" is almost as stupid as his publishing this inconsequential piece. (For starters, they're not sure it's actually round .)

It would be nice if there were better (closer) pictures.
