A mysterious object spotted on Google Earth is apparently a UFO that crash landed in Antarctica, according to a YouTube channel of alien hunters.
Is this finally the proof that we need to confirm that aliens exist? Or is it nothing more than conspiracy theories trying to make something out of nothing?
UFO Crash Or Natural Phenomenon?
On first look, the mysterious object spotted in Antarctica certainly looks unnatural, with an estimated length of about 63 meters. With its narrow shape and a nearly perfect symmetrical trail of snow that is over 3,000 feet long behind it, it is easy to see why alien hunters would think that this is an alien spacecraft that crashed into the South Georgia Island, located in the Southern Atlantic Ocean.
"It appears to be some sort of massive elongated or cigar-shaped object that at some point — and we don't know when — came to a screeching halt in the snow," said the hosts of a YouTube video uploaded by the SecureTeam10 channel.
Is the object really an alien spaceship, and is this proof of alien life once again being covered up?
Not everybody is convinced. Typing in the coordinates on the Google Earth website to take a look at a zoomed-out image of the object, it appears that the trail left behind by the supposed UFO leads back to a mountain, at the foot of which lies a significant amount of disturbed snow.
Richard Waller, a geologist from Keele University, believes that the object is the result of a large avalanche that occurred at the nearby mountain, echoing the explanations left behind by several users on SecureTeam10's video.
"Part of a hanging glacier appears to have collapsed, you can see the avalanche debris at the foot of the slope, and this could be a large block of ice that has travelled further as a consequence," Waller noted.
The First Alien Sighting Of 2018
The mysterious object in Antarctica is not the first widely reported UFO sighting this year. That distinction goes to a UFO in Mexico that was spotted in mid-January, when a woman recorded footage of a strangely-shaped object hovering vertically in the air.
However, unlike the supposed Antarctica UFO that may be explained by various scientific possibilities, the nature of the vertical UFO remains unknown. UFO expert Pedro Ramirez, meanwhile, attributed the recent increase in alien sightings to the rocket launches of NASA and SpaceX. Aliens are monitoring Earth because they have become concerned over our activity, Ramirez claimed.
