Sorry geeks, it’s not the Millenium Falcon.

A team of deep sea treasure hunters investigating a bizarre formation below the Baltic Sea said over the weekend it’s definitely not a UFO.

“It’s not, obviously, an alien spacecraft. It’s not made of metal,” Peter Lindberg, the leader of the Ocean Explorer team, told Fox News. He also noted it appeared to be some sort of “natural, geological formation.”

It is likely a rock, the team said, but it still presents a bit of a mystery.

“During my 20-year diving career, including 6,000 dives, I have never seen anything like this,” Stefan Hogeborn, one of the divers at Ocean Explorer Team, said in a news release posted to the team’s website on Saturday.

Images of the bizarre shape, which made the object appear to resemble the famed starship from the “Star Wars” films, were first captured by Ocean Explorers in August 2011. The photo sparked wild speculation, and garnered so much interest that the team was able to raise the money needed for a full-fledged dive.

Lindberg, along with scientists and divers, spent 12 days exploring the 200-foot-wide object and are in the process of reviewing the footage. In the news release, the team described the formation as a “huge mushroom,” with “rounded sides and rugged edges.”

The 3- to 4-meter high object rests at the end of what the team described as a “runway” that is “flattened at the seabed with the object at the end of it.”

They also noted that some of the rocks along that path appeared to be burned.

“Since no volcanic activity has ever been reported in the Baltic Sea the find becomes even stranger,” Lindberg said in the release. “As laymen we can only speculate how this is made by nature, but this is the strangest thing I have ever experienced as a professional diver.”

Scientists are examining samples from the circle-shaped object, and experts in sonar imaging are processing data to hopefully shed more light on the mysterious object.

The Ocean X Team dove down to the circle-shaped object in the Baltic Sea and met something they never experienced before. First they thought it was just stone or a rock cliff, but after further observations the object appeared more as a huge mushroom, rising 3-4 meters/10-13 feet from the seabed, with rounded sides and rugged edges. The object had an egg shaped hole leading into it from the top, as an opening. On top of the object they also found strange stone circle formations, almost looking like small fireplaces. The stones were covered in something resembling soot.

“During my 20-year diving career, including 6000 dives, I have never seen anything like this. Normally stones don’t burn. I can’t explain what we saw, and I went down there to answer questions, but I came up with even more questions “, says Stefan Hogeborn, one of the divers at Ocean X Team.

The path to the object itself can be described as a runway or a downhill path that is flattened at the seabed with the object at the end of it.

“First we thought this was only stone, but this is something else. And since no volcanic activity has ever been reported in the Baltic Sea the find becomes even stranger. As laymen we can only speculate how this is made by nature, but this is the strangest thing I have ever experienced as a professional diver“, continues Peter Lindberg, one of the founder Ocean X Team.

Right now, scientists are examining samples from the circle-shaped object, and experts in sonar imaging are processing data from the ship to hopefully shed more light over the mysterious object.
