An exciting expedition took place Wednesday off the coast of North Carolina.

The NOAA Ship Okeanos Explorer is diving on a sonar anomaly that could potentially be a shipwreck, the organization said.

The locations of the potential shipwreck dives are confidential, NOAA said.

Later Wednesday NOAA said it appears the sonar anomaly they are exploring is not a wreck but rather a geological formation with biological communities and other debris.
