PACIFIC OCEAN (WTHR) - The USS Indianapolis, gone for more than 70 years, came back into view in a live special Wednesday night.

Explorers who recently found the ship, which carried the atomic bomb that ended World War II before being sunk by a Japanese submarine on July 30, 1945, showed off their find on "USS Indianapolis: Live from the Deep" on PBS.

The USS Indianapolis lies so deep within the Pacific Ocean, it's actually one mile further down than the final resting place of the Titanic.

Paul Allen's research team is not disclosing the exact location of the ship but they have been authorized to continue to monitor the site in accordance with laws governing war graves. The team from Allen's Vulcan, Inc. live tweeted the special.

The live show was also streamed on YouTube. Watch the show below:
