Here's an interesting mystery for ATS... There was a large underwater observatory in the Baltic Sea called the Boknis Eck observatory that was responsible for measuring various oceanic data. I say WAS, because it has very mysteriously vanished after seeming to have been forcibly removed from its location... And nobody has any idea where it is, what happened to it or how.

German authorities are investigating the mysterious and seemingly inexplicable disappearance of the €300,000 ($330,000) Boknis Eck underwater observatory from the Baltic Sea.

The sheer size and weight of the subsea station, which consisted of two racks, one weighing 250kg (550lbs) and the other 100kg, anchored at a depth of 22 meters (72 feet) has ruled out a massive storm, heavy currents or large sea creatures

Both racks... were “removed with great force from their position,”

On August 21 at roughly 8:15pm local time, transmissions from the station stopped dead. Divers dispatched to investigate discovered that the entire structure had simply vanished leaving only a shredded transmission cable behind.

I saw this movie, an underwater earthquake caused it to fall into a trench.

Interesting! Another url

Two guesses. One is that it recorded data on something someone did not want to have recorded, or;

Two is that someone wants to do something in that area and they don't want a monitoring station collecting data.

Cheers

I wonder if some country stole it to prevent something it may have detected from being discovered.

The millennial falcon recently took off from the seabed. Unfortunately, this observatory was in its path. Chewy tried to avoid it, but Han didn’t have the patience.

My guess is a fishing boat snagged it.

Or-

Bigfoot was skinny-dipping and smacked his dingus on it, got upset, and tossed it towards greece.

Or both. I'm going with Russia for no other reason than they both have the ability and have also been testing all sorts of shiny new military gear.

Or the USA because they have discovered evidence of impending doom they didn't want getting out! We're doomed i tell you!

It was located in a restricted area where commercial and civilian traffic was prohibited.

The time in which it was taken should be known based on the failure of the F-O cable. I'll bet *someone* is asking if there is any high-resolution satellite imagery of that area for that point in time.

Seems like Godzilla should also be put on the list of suspects.

Maybe they had tested underwater time travel device. I'm not going to say aliens, but, its the aliens! Unless it was magic!

Intriguing as hell! I hope someone has come across more information and can share with us. If all else fails for an explanation... I'll go with aliens.

Well technically, Chewy is an alien. So yeah, aliens did it.

All the navies of the world are having problems with missing ships, collisions, strange accidents etc and now this


Out on my own twig of speculation, maybe, just maybe there is another race of beings under the ocean, either natively, or using it as a base (Ivan T Sanderson's USO's) and have finally come out in the 'open' to proclaim their mastery of the seas.

We have those here on lake superior.

Some of the locals get magically large hauls, but "they" don't fish there....
