Yep, and maybe someone will get what they hoped for?
BREAKING NEWS 2pm, The divers are now down and investigating the circle and reports from the ship say they are really amazed. There is definitely something unusual hiding at the seabed – a Mystery Beneath. More information and pictures will be released next week."

I do wish that they find something, either submerged crashed UFO, or some temple form an unknown civilization, but chances are small.... time will tell...

Care to elaborate why?
In my opinion, if there was something, all world agencies would be already there long time ago, for many reasons including national security (if UFO) ....
Yesterday, the OceanX team made an unexpected trip back to shore to stock up on more supplies before resuming their adventure. A local Swedish man (Morgan Andersson) who has been following the exploits on Facebook and lives nearby, came accross the ship “Ancylus” docked in Norrtälje harbour.
According to Andersson, he spent time chatting with some of the crew who seemed glad to be back on dry land for a while. On hearing the news, frenzied Facebook users encouraged him to find out as much as he could, and so after talking with various crew members it became obvious that they were not up for talking about what they had found.
Meanwhile the group’s Facebook page went into meltdown overnight as it’s membership surged by a few thousand people. Frustratingly, the rapid influx of newbies making pointless postings and going over old ground has derailed what was a very cohesive group. The newbies were also joined by a seemingly endless procession of trolls peddling incorrect information from various blogs looking for sensationalist headlines.
The facts again.
There are THREE objects of interest – the main circular anomaly, a smaller secondary object like a “Gothic church window” 200 metres away and a 90ft high and 900ft wide rock outcrop with a crack running through it some 1500 metres South. The team have stated they are not really interested in the second anomaly, although the reason for this is unclear, given that it may be a fragment of the main anomaly that broke off on impact.
The objects lie in 80-85 metres depth of water. Visibility is 2-3 feet maximum.
The object is 60 metres (approx 200ft wide) roughly equivalent to the wingspan of Boeing 747.
The main circular anomaly is not a rock formation.
Russian and US Navy ships are NOT looking for the object, nor are they blocking the OceanX team – this is unsubstantiated rumour.
The annual BALTOPS operation has nothing to do with the OceanX exploration.
"The team’s website has been close to useless where updates are concerned, with many people resorting to contacting the TV documentary offices out of frustration in an effort to find out more."
the Ocean X Team’s Facebook page, which has seen a lot of non-moderated activity in the last couple of days. Moderators stepped in quickly today though when a local long-time professional marine archaeological diver — a resident of Norrtälje, where the Ancylus is moored — posted a picture of her son on the Ancylus bridge together with a comment that read along the lines of “no no, the anomaly is surely not a UFO.”

From the sonar images provided, which were different from the ones previously posted on ATS, show what looks like the work of glaciers. The seafloor material was described as what is commonly referred as glacial till. It also looks like the anomaly in question was previously a rock formation that had the top of it removed by most likely a glacier. Those are very common geological happenings.
I was absolutely wishing that there was something there but I think it was pretty conclusive evidence that there is nothing there. Besides, this is not the usual fare for Explorer X. No 100 year old champagne bottles inside of UFO's. Well at least normally there is not, me thinks.

I watched the video multiple times now but i am unable to correlate those rocks shown in any way to the object on the sonar. I also have problems since there is no indication about sizes of those rocks.
If visibility was only a few feet (as has been told)..and the "object" is 60m in diameter..those rocks as seen in the video seem to be only small stones not far away from the camera?
When they swim further, they see several rock formations. - It looks almost like a pearl necklace or that someone has tried to make a fireplace with an inch-sized rocks on the ocean floor. The furnace-like rock formations on top of that which constitutes the large circle that was discovered with a scanner tool last year. Divers images shows that the circle in turn consist of several blocks formed by "rolls" or "mushrooms" that is attached to each other, forming the circle. Overall, the object is 60 meters long and about as wide. - When we had swum across the object, we get to the weird thing. Then it's like someone has pinched the mountain at the edge, as if you have breathed together two molds, and it sticks out between stone formers, said Stefan Hogeborn.
Expressen has let Martin Jakobsson, a professor of marine geology and geophysics at the University of Stockholm, see an image from the dive. - There is probably some kind of sandstone. When you look at the structure, it looks like it, he says.
