Antarctica is the planet’s southernmost most continent, where the geographic South Pole is located. The desolate desert, where temperatures can plummet to -90C, is home to some 1,000 scientists and countless penguins. But UFO conspiracy theorist Scott Waring believes he has now stumbled across something else in the icy wilderness, using Google Maps – the crash site of an alien spacecraft.
Waring took to his etdatabas.com blog in an attempt to explain his bizarre Google Maps find.
He said: “I believe I have found a crashed UFO in the South Pole region.
“Part of the UFO’s wing is folded-up and its concave area is dented.
“The alien craft looks kind of old, but there are still some burn marks trailing all the way behind it.
“I was actually looking for Nazi or alien bases on the South Pole, but instead stumbled upon this.”

The strange discovery was spotted off the coast on a little island to the mainland’s north.
If it was a crashed UFO, it must have been made from some rocky, metallic material like we see on Mars.
Waring added: “The purported alien spacecraft is 96m in length, while the trail is 448m, which is absolutely amazing.
“You see all these broken pieces and the craft slid to its side when it came to rest.
“This is a really strange ship which looks really ancient.
“The scene does not look like it happened yesterday, it looks like it has been around for a very long time.
“It reminds me of the female air pilot Amelia Earhart, who some believe landed on an island.
If you are an alien and land on this tiny island you are kind of screwed – it looks pretty desolate.
“Hopefully any survivors contacted someone and were rescued, although I couldn’t find any alien structures.”
The outlandish UFO claim soon attracted scores of comments on YouTube.
YouTube user Leatherneck Joe wrote: “It looks like it hit the ground slid and maybe it broke off the front edge landed were it is now and the other half to the back and down.
“I surely see something there, very very interesting hmm …”
However, Juanita Beazley is less convinced by Google Maps image, commenting: “I don’t know Scott, this analogy is a stretch!
“I see the skid but I am having trouble getting a ship out of that.”
