Has Google Earth become the greatest UFO-hunting tool since the invention of looking up? Russian UFO researcher Valentin Degterev thinks so. He’s been pouring over satellite images of Antarctica and recently found what he believes is the vertical impact site of a saucer-shaped UFO crash with part of the craft visible. Has he discovered the remains of an unknown spaceship, possibly from another planet?
If you’d like to see it yourself, the self-described “researcher of the unknown” provides the coordinates: 80°34’08.4″S 30°05’19.3″W. The impact crater appears to be about 65 feet (20 meters) wide by 230 feet (70 meters) long, which would translate to the approximate height and diameter of a flying saucer. Or, as Degterev describes it on a Russian social media site:
… it is the most genuine UFO in its most classic shape … I think there is very large disc-shaped flying machine among the frozen ice.
Doubters can line up behind Andrew Fleming from the British Antarctic Survey, who says the image shows a crevasse in the ground caused by shifting of the ice, and the image of a craft that Degterev believes he sees is simply shadows and bare ice without a snow cover.
Degterev obviously has a better PC than Fleming because he says the object he spotted had a metal body and was definitely not a rock or ice.
It’s hard to discount UFO sightings in Antarctica when there are numerous accounts dating back to the 1940s of Nazi UFOs at Antarctic bases having battles with the US Navy. There is also speculation about a Nazi base on the moon. While Degtrerev seems to think what he found is a craft from “the distant cosmos” of a more recent vintage, climate change is melting the ice across Antarctica and more flying saucers and other Unidentified Frozen Objects may begin to appear.
Did Valentin Degterev find the crash site of a flying saucer? Is a Nazi UFO emerging from its frozen grave? We won’t know anything until the image is updated and we can see if the footprints are walking out or in.
