An Australian man has come across a rather strange image while searching for an address on Google Maps.
Dean Stocks, from Darwin, was searching for a location in Tennant Creek in the Northern Territory when he saw what appeared to be a UFO on the digital map.
Speaking to the NT News, Mr Stocks said he couldn’t believe it.

‘I don’t believe I’ve seen a sky boob before but I’ve read about them in picture magazines,’ he said.
‘I know all the conspirators will have their say – it will be a reflection of the Tennant Creek watertank or something like that.’
At closer inspection, the image does bear striking similarity to an alien spacecraft.

However, it could also be a flash of light from the Google Maps camera or, as Mr Stocks suggested, a reflection of a nearby watertank.
Darwin astronomer Geoff Carr told the publication the image was likely photoshopped.
Meanwhile, Mr Stocks said he would be traveling to Tennant Creek in a few weeks and would make a point of driving down Ambrose Street, the sight of the UFO image, to inspect the area for himself.
