‘Crash-landed alien spaceship’ is a chunk of rock or ice expert says

Conspiracy theorists who claim to have spotted a ‘crash-landed spaceship’ could be left disappointed, according to an expert on glaciers.

Alien hunters are convinced the mysterious object, spotted on Google Earth, is of extra terrestrial origin but the truth would seem to lie closer to home.

Rather than evidence of little green men, it is the result of a large avalanche from a nearby mountain depositing a rock or large chunk of ice onto a glacier below.

Alien hunters are convinced a mysterious object spotted on Google Earth (above) is a crash-landed spaceship, but Dr Richard Waller, a senior lecturer in physical geography at Keele University, is not convinced

Dr Richard Waller, senior lecturer in physical geography at Keele University, is behind the claim.

The unidentified mass was discovered near Antarctica on the remote South Georgia Island in the South Atlantic Ocean, where just 20 people live. 

Speaking to MailOnline, Dr Waller said: ‘It looks to me as though this feature is related to a large avalanche from a nearby mountain.

‘Part of a hanging glacier appears to have collapsed, you can see the avalanche debris at the foot of the slope, and this could be a large block of ice that has travelled further as a consequence.

‘The track shows that it’s sliding over a snow-covered glacier before it comes to a rest.’

Web theorists at well-known alien site Secureteam10 used satellite mapping to zoom in and get a closer look at the alleged spaceship near the 10,000ft tall Mount Paget.

Bizarre tracks can be seen running up behind the object, suggesting it slid through the snow for some distance before coming to a halt.

Footage of the strange mass published on YouTube on Saturday has been viewed more than 150,000 times.

While some believe it is the work of extra-terrestrials, others suggested similar theories to Dr Waller’s.

Other YouTubers didn’t appear to take the sighting very seriously.

‘Umm thats when Superman crashed into that mountain in the 1st Snyder Superman movie,’ wrote one.

‘It’s Santa’s sleigh,’ said another. 

Secureteam10 describe themselves as ‘the fastest growing research outlet and source for data’ on aliens and UFOs.

Their Facebook page is followed and liked by nearly 165,000 people.

The team say their mission is ‘exposing the alien cover up, one leak at a time’.
