The puzzling metal 'starfish' found embedded in the sand at a Rhode Island beach has been unearthed, but its removal has done little to solve the mystery surrounding it.
Discovered a few weeks ago during low tide in the town of Westerly, the strange object stuck in the seabed has been somewhat of a summer sensation in the community.
Theories about the object have ranged from the prosaic, such as a disused piece of scientific equipment, to the exotic, including the always-popular alien connection.
It was thought that an excavation of the anomaly on Thursday morning might finally yield a solution to the mystery, however the endeavor seems to have only spawned more uncertainty.
Check out video of the object being pulled from the ocean and see if you can figure out what it once was at the Coast to Coast AM website.
