A mysterious cylindrical object is sitting 300 feet at the bottom of the Baltic Sea between Sweden and Finland, and nobody knows what it is — yet.

Deep sea divers using remote-controlled cameras are heading to the site on Friday. They’ll try to determine the exact identity of the object, which side-scan sonar first revealed in June 2011.

“My guess is that they won’t find anything. They may just find a large roundish rock,” well-known skeptic Benjamin Radford, deputy editor of Skeptical Inquirer magazine, told The Huffington Post.

“Side-scan sonar is not a photograph and it can create false echoes, so it’s not crystal clear what exactly it is that you’re recording,” Radford said. “The object that we’re talking about is basically flush with the ocean floor, and side-scan sonar is much less reliable for things like that.”
