Strange Vehicles Found at UFO Landing Site in Antarctica

A Google Earth image of what appears to be a UFO that crashed into the show in Antarctica just got a little more mysterious with the discovery of prior satellite images showing what looks like four strange vehicles lined up at the site. Who could they belong to? Why are there no tracks … tire or otherwise?

The site was first discovered this past summer by Russian UFO researcher Valentin Degterev who believed the crack-shaped opening was the result of a saucer-type UFO crashing vertically into the snow and ice. The saucer was estimated to be 240 feet in diameter and 40 feet high and the Google Earth image was taken on February 15, 2012.

Researchers looking at previous satellite images of the same site taken in April 2011 and December 2011 found what appear to be four massive vehicles parked in the snow and pointed at the crack. In addition, these prior images show what could be the actual flying saucer with a skid mark in the snow making it look like the craft landed, possibly in an emergency.

What should we make of these earlier satellite images? While some reports identify the shapes as “tanks,” if they really are vehicles, they’re massive in size, probably around 70 feet in length. There are no tire tracks, but they could have been covered by snow or blown away.

Then there’s the saucer itself. It certainly looks like a landing imprint in the snow behind it which the wind hadn’t blown away. But why is it horizontal in this image and vertical in the later one? Did the occupants of the vehicles attempt to bury it? If so, why did they stop? Why are they no longer in the later images?

What has happened at this site since 2012? Why are there no later images? Were the saucer, the crash site and the vehicles eventually covered up with snow? Taken away? By whom … or what?

Mulder, I might find it easier to believe in your UFOs if they were in Hawaii.
