Whether you believe in aliens or not, you can’t deny that these areas found on Google Maps look a bit strange.
Alien researchers are constantly trawling the free mapping site in pursuit of extra-terrestrial signs. Check them out below and judge for yourselves…
The underwater alien base in Antarctica
In April, UFO hunters claimed a 500-metre-long object off the coast of Antarctica as an underwater alien lair.
The website, UFO Sightings Hotspot, believes it does not fit the normal iceberg description. “I’m not an iceberg expert but this object is really peculiar and looks like a vessel disguised as an iceberg,” the site reads.

The Martian structure 'identical' to a Japanese tomb
There’s a Kofun Era tomb in Japan which looks identical to a mound on Mars from above.
Alien hunters spotted the pair on Google Maps and Google Earth’s Mars feature respectively, and believe it’s evidence that Martians settled on Earth hundreds of years ago after a terrible event forced them off the Red Planet.
They do look similar. But could it just be a coincidence?

The underwater alien base
Could this giant pyramid shape spotted beneath the surface of the Pacific Ocean be an alien underwater base?
That’s what Argentine researcher Marcelo Igazusta believes, claiming the object measures more than 8.5 miles across its base. Read more here.

The spaceship in Romania
One eagle-eyed user noticed what looks like a spaceship parked – but not very discretely hidden - in Romania.
After years of speculation, it eventually emerged that it’s actually a water tower built during the last century. No sign of alien life forms here then, but an easy mistake to make.

Entrance to alien base under floating island
Alien-hunting site UFO Sightings Daily claims to have found the entrance to an alien base in Argentina, which comes in the form of a floating island.
It’s believed that the large, circular shape rotates in a circle and is large enough to allow a 100-metre UFO through.

UFO found in restricted part of Arizona
Could this be a crashed flying saucer? YouTube users secureteam10 spotted the strange object in a restricted area of Arizona - which only makes it even more curious.
Not everyone is convinced, of course – some say it could just be a yurt.

UFO crash landing
In the remote British territory of South Georgia, 810 miles from the Falklands Islands, a strange site has been found on Google Maps.
According to alien hunter SecureTeam10, the object and the lines leading up to it are all signs of an UFO crash landing as the vehicle "came to a screeching halt in the snow".
Alien activity or glacial movement? You decide.

Line across half the earth
Alien-hunting YouTube channel sectureteam10 have spotted something on Google Earth. There's a cloud formation that stretches from Antartica across the planet to the North Pole.
While the UFO fanatics suspect something sinister is afoot, it could also be due to a glitch in Google Earth uploads.
