Divers have seen the huge balls of jelly in several sites. They are nearly transparent and about a metre in diameter.

Fortunately, a few divers have had cameras and managed to photograph the mystery objects.

Scientists initially assumed these were extremely rare, but just how rare is still an unanswered question.

In the course of the summer discussions about them have flourished in web fora. It seems that many people have seen them. Researchers have counted 15 observations of the jelly balls in the past 15 years.

In July and August this year, seven of these observations were made off Norway’s coast.

Two similar observations were made off the coast of Sweden and one off Alaska.

A huge blob is said to have been seen off Turkey.

“Divers have seen more of them this summer than ever.”

“We are a group of marine researchers who really want to find out what these are,” says Professor Gro I. van der Meeren.

She and her colleagues in Bergen and Trondheim have no research funds for finding and studying them, so they are asking for help from divers, diving clubs and others.

Giant, jelly-like blobs have been sighted off the western coast of Norway, but the identities of these mysterious objects have scientists stumped.

The blobs are about 3.3 feet (1 meter) in diameter and are translucent, except for a strange dark streak running through their center, Science Nordic reported. No one knows what they are, or what made them.

"This is a mystery, actually," said Michael Vecchione, an invertebrate zoologist at the Smithsonian Institution who has been corresponding with Norwegian researchers about the blobs. "It could be an egg mass, or something completely different, but we just don't know at this point until we get some more detailed observations."

Some are saying they are Giant squid egg's but many more are skeptical of that.
