Incredible photos show shipwrecks hidden in the depths of Lake Michigan

The water in Lake Michigan is currently so clear that scores of shipwrecks can be spotted from the sky.

“With Lake Michigan ice gone for the season the crystal clear, deep blue waters of northern Michigan are back,” the Traverse City Coast Guard station wrote on its Facebook page.

The ships were spotted by the Coast Guard aircrew while out on a standard patrol mission. They began to notice shipwrecks beneath the water and photographed ones they came across.

The Traverse City Coast Guard station began posting images of the wrecks to its Facebook page in an effort to identify some of the remains in a series dubbed “Shipwreck Sunday.”

The guard station thanked its fans and followers for the “frenzy over the beauty of our home state and our lakes.”
