Google Maps user spots ‘possible UFO’ over rocks in satellite view of Antarctica
A Google Maps user is looking for help identifying a possible UFO he thinks he saw in Antarctica.
Reddit user @Leesoy posted a screenshot of the Ice Continent’s satellite view after spotting the mysterious object.
The image shows a white cylindrical object on a brown background that appears to be rocks located at 74.0322S, 22.4506W, which lies along the edge of the snowy land.
The user asked, “UFO or rock? Antarctica Google Earth.
Although likely just rocks, the sighting came after a UFO enthusiast found what he believes to be a secret base in Antarctica created by ancient aliens on Google Earth.
The mysterious south pole site, which can be seen in satellite photos as several large ridges in the snow, appears to have been there for many decades.
Extensive excavation appears to have been carried out here, with vehicles and a number of tracks in the snow leading to it also visible.
Some development occurred between the 1985 and 2013 images, with an airplane landing strip apparently added alongside the curious mounds.

Taiwan’s Scott C Waring, who uploaded footage of his surprise find to YouTube channel UFO Sightings Daily this week, said he believed the sighting was evidence of an ancient deep underground alien structure that has since been investigated and hidden from the public.
This week, reports also emerged that conspiracy theorists believe the Nazis found UFOs in Antarctica during World War II and reverse-engineered them to take to Mars for the creation of super soldiers.
