A diver exploring off the coast of British Columbia may have found a legendary nuclear bomb that went missing in the 1950's.
Sean Smyrichinsky spotted the strange object during a diving expedition near Canada's Banks Island.
"It resembled, like, a bagel cut in half, and then around the bagel these bolts molded into it," Smyrichinsky told the CBC.
When he first emerged from the water after encountering the mystery object, Smyrichinsky marveled to his fellow divers that he had just spotted a UFO!
However, he later investigated what it could have possibly been and concluded that it was likely a nuclear bomb that was lost in a U.S. Air Force crash in 1950.
The incident had been kept secret by the American government for years and the ultimate whereabouts of the bomb had long been the subject of debate among researchers.
Comparing images of the 'lost bomb' to what he saw during the dive, Smyrichinsky is convinced that it must be the infamous armament, probably because any other possibly was too fantastic to consider.
Smyrichinsky mused to the CBC, "I was thinking UFO, but probably not a UFO, right?"
Since the discovery is not too far from where the American Air Force plane went down in 1950, the chance of Smyrichinsky's object being the bomb seems fairly likely.
Fortunately, the 'mystery object' will not linger as an unsolved case for long as the Canadian Navy is en route to examine Smyrichinsky's find and determine what it is.
Although an official with the Canadian Air Force claims that the 'lost bomb' from the 1950's is not dangerous, we wouldn't want to be the guy in the wetsuit who has to go down there and find out.
