The organization Lowcountry Marine Mammal Network, which is normally called upon to handle sea creatures in distress found a strange-looking and a rather sizeable object that had washed ashore on Seabrook Island.
The large cylindrical object, described as having a “soft and soapy” exterior was found by the Lowcountry Marine Mammal Network. Lauren Rust, executive director of the Lowcountry Marine Mammal Network, was among the first to witness.
“There’s no metal on it. It’s all foam,” she told The Post and Courier, before posting the image on Facebook in hopes someone could identify it.
They removed the object away without answering any questions and its current whereabouts are unknown which of course has led to speculation what the object could be.
Sandy Behrens (local) said: “Aliens! It looks like something from Cape Canaveral. I remember seeing something similar in St Lucia”.
Another theory is that it was military weapons that were dumped in the coastal waters around the Maritimes in Nova Scotia, Canada. They may have washed up the coast as far as South Carolina.
Some people have suggested that it’s some kind of construction material or a buoy, others suggest it could be space debris or a broken part of alien spacecraft.
The next day, another similar thing was found on the nearby beach. This is broken in half, and when the discoverer thinks it is a hard metal, both are soft like a sponge for some reason, and the mystery only deepens.
The object was found by a staff member of the Lowcountry Marine Mammal Network (LMMN), a non-profit organization that rescues marine animals such as whales and dolphins, and they have never seen anything like this before. When I casually posted it on Facebook, it got a big response, and it became a very popular post with more than 340 shares and more than 200 comments.
