SEABROOK ISLAND, S.C.(WCIV)- No one seems to know what exactly washed ashore on Seabrook Island this week, but it certainly has many guessing.

The large cylindrical shaped discovery was featured in a Facebook post by Lowcountry Marine Mammal Network.

"Look at this mysterious object that washed ashore in Seabrook Island today! What do you think it is?" the post read.

Dozens of people commented on the post. Many people posited that the seemingly out-of-this-world item could be a UFO. Other, more grounded posters, considered the possibility that it could be a broken part of a satellite or possibly a buoy.

Leaders say the exterior of the object felt and looked like foam.

Whatever the case, the mystery was whisked away by town leaders, according to comments by LMMN.

ABC News 4 has reached out to Seabrook Island officials for additional information.

This is a developing story.
