High-resolution images revealed a ship likely built around the mid-1800s, according to the NOAA. But archaeologists couldn’t immediately tell how long ago the ship sank. Made of wood with copper sheathing, the vessel is thought to have stretched about 124 feet long.

‘Wow, What Is That?’ Navy Pilots Report Unexplained Flying Objects

‘Wow, What Is That?’ Navy Pilots Report Unexplained Flying Objects WASHINGTON — The strange objects, one of them like a spinning top moving against the wind, appeared almost daily from the summer of 2014 to March 2015, high in the skies over the East Coast . Navy pilots reported to their superiors that the objects had no visible engine or infrared exhaust plumes, but that they could reach 30,000 feet and hypersonic speeds. “These things would be out there all day,” said Lt. Ryan Graves, an F/A-18 Super Hornet pilot who has been with the Navy for 10 years, and who reported his sightings to the Pentagon and Congress. “Keeping an aircraft in the air requires a significant amount of energy.

The number "2109" is visible along the trailing edge of the rudder. The pattern of nails securing the copper sheathing is also visible.

However, the numbers “2109” were nailed to the edge of the ship’s rudder, and some iron and copper artifacts were spotted near the vessel.

Much of the ship’s hull is relatively well-preserved, although parts of the protective copper sheathing have deteriorated. Unusually, no structure remains above the ship’s water line, and the team found little evidence of standing rigging.

Charred pieces of timber and bent fasteners suggests the boat may have caught alight at sea. Researchers think fire may have engulfed the boat and destroyed almost everything above the surface of the water.

NOAA spokesperson Emily Crum described the “surprising” find to the Observer. “Typically when we find/explore shipwrecks, we have some basic information that allows us to search for a target,” she told the newspaper. “In this instance, there was no information to suggest the wreck was there. The team just ‘stumbled’ upon it.”

The NOAA did not immediately respond to Newsweek's request for comment.
