A MYSTERIOUS ’ancient object’ uncovered by melting ice and snow in Antarctica has sparked an online frenzy, amid claims that it could be of extraterrestrial origin – or simply a pool of water.
A bizarre disc-shaped object spotted on Google Maps in Antarctica has sparked an online frenzy of conspiracy theories. Footage uploaded last week by conspiracy theorist channel MrMBB333 showed what he labelled an “intelligently designed craft” hidden by ice and snow. The video, titled ’Melting Ice Reveals Undeniable 60ft Wide Disc Stuck in the Ground of Antarctica! “Ancient Craft?”’ has been viewed nearly 360,000 times.
The host of the conspiracy YouTube channel described the bizarre object found on Google Maps, saying: “It looks like an intelligently designed structure sticking out of the ice in Antartica.”
He measured the object as 60ft-wide, with half of it exposed and the other half under thawing ice and snow.
The YouTuber continued: “Its origins are unknown. We don’t know if humans did this or if it came from something else.
“We don’t know how long it’s been there either. You can clearly tell that this object is out of place.”
He added: “Under multiple enhancements you will see features on top of the dark grey disc and it doesn’t fit in with the rest of the ground.
“You can see a reflection on there, which gives you an idea that this is made of metal.
“This is one of the best spots I’ve seen in Antarctica.”
Footage of the object, described as ’saucer or disc-shaped,’ sparked a debate online about its veracity.
Many suggested it was a crashed alien craft while several claimed it could be “an entrance to an ancient ruin base”.
Others joked that the object resembled the horror movie The Thing, which features an alien craft hidden underneath ice.
One skeptic claimed it was just a “pool of water from melted ice”.
