A suspicious object was spotted on Google Maps by UFO Hunters over St Kilda Beach, southern New Zealand.
The UFO was found with the aid of Google Maps' street view function, which caught the object over the waters of the Pacific Ocean.
Prominent UFOlogist and conspiracy theorist, Scott C Waring, shared the bizarre discovery on both his blog ET Data Base and his YouTube channel, and said; "This just came into my email today. Luke sent this in and found a UFO using Google Earth Map online version. The UFO looks like a fat disc, thicker in the upper and lower middle. The object is metallic in colour, and has no wings and nothing to indicate that it might be a balloon, drone, plane or anything. The object is in extraordinary focus and the air around it seems to be warped as if its propulsion system is altering the air temperature or static."
The discovery was also met with praise on YouTube where one of Mr Waring's fans said it is phenomenal.
Another person stated that the object's propulsion could be "coming from the top goes out the bottom."
This is indeed not the first time Mr Waring claims to have discovered a UFO on Google Maps. He has previously shared images of what he believed is a "fleet of UFOs". Another time he found an entire ancient city and pyramid underwater, near the coast of Cuba.
Most experts can explain these UFO sightings through an effect known as pareidolia which is a trick of the mind that occurs when people see recognizable shapes and patterns where they do not exist.
Astronomer, Larry Sessions, wrote in an article for EarthSky.org: "Maybe you’ve seen the proverbial bunny in a patch of clouds, or a clown’s face in a mud splatter on the side of your car? Seeing recognizable objects or patterns in otherwise random or unrelated objects or patterns is called pareidolia. "It’s a form of apophenia, which is a more general term for the human tendency to seek patterns in random information. Everyone experiences it from time to time."
