Alien hunters say they have spotted a crash-landed UFO in a Google Earth image of Antarctica.

Extra-terrestrial enthusiasts say they located the mysterious object on South Georgia Island in the Southern Atlantic Ocean.

They claim it could represent a crash-landed spacecraft of some kind.

In the image, the long narrow shape lies in the snow and ice with a trail behind it.

The image was captured and posted online in a video by YouTube channel SecureTeam10, who believe it may indicate there is other life out there in the stars.

“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,” the alien hunters said.

“This could be something which came from the air and crash-landed.”

However, many observers pointed out that the shape could be anything but out of this world.

Some theorised it was merely a rock that had been pushed along a glacier.

One YouTube viewer said he was stationed on the island with the Royal Navy.

He said: “The research station on the island asked us to fly a photographic recce over the entire island to document population and locations of reindeer.

“As the photographer on that recce, I can confirm 100 per cent that what you see in the image is just the result of a glacial slide. Sorry.”

But other commenters aren’t so certain.

One said: “Healthy scepticism is fine. But this object has left a nearly perfect, symmetrical, evenly-spaced trail behind it for 3,000+ feet.”
