The Lowcountry Marine Mammal Network posted a series of images to their Facebook page on October 4th in an attempt to identify a strange object that washed ashore that day on Seabrook Island in South Carolina.

The mysterious object appeared to be made of layered foam, and did not contain any metal.

The following day, what appeared to be the object’s other half washed ashore in the same area.

The object was removed from the beach by truck, but so far no official explanation exists for what it is or how it arrived where it was found.

Speculation on the object’s identity includes everything from UFOs to movie props, but the likeliest suspect is a marine buoy—possibly knocked loose and brought to shore by recent violent weather in that area.
