Topic of existence of extra-terrestrial life seems to have gained a new momentum following a Darwin resident’s claim of seeing a potential UFO pop up on his computer screen while using Google Maps to search for an address in Tennant Creek.
When Dean Stocks clicked on the Ambrose Street location and zoomed in with Google Street View, he saw something that was hard to believe on.
Hovering above the outback town, it was an object with a remarkable similarity to a flying saucer. He said he hadn’t decided if it was a sky boob or a bona fide UFO, but knew it was out of the ordinary.
“I don’t believe I’ve seen a sky boob before but I’ve read about them in picture magazines. I know all the conspirators will have their say – it will be a reflection of the Tennant Creek watertank or something like that,” Dean was quoted by Daily Telegraph as saying.
He said he often travels to Tennant Creek, and would be driving down to Ambrose Street to see if there is anything paranormal floating above the surface next time he was down there.
However, Darwin astronomer Geoff Carr claims the image was likely photoshopped.
International alien group, Mutual UFO Network have developed a comprehensive database of UFO sightings around the world. The UFO Stalker map includes dates, times and details of the incident.
The year 2017 has witnessed many instances of UFO spotting, though most of them have no solid explanations.
Reports of a UFO spotted in Google Maps and Google Earth photographs had been doing the rounds. A mysterious shape in the middle of a field had sparked questions.
A large triangle with bright lights evenly placed around it had been seen in Australia at coordinates 30°30'38.44"S 115°22'56.03"E.
The triangle was first discovered in 2007 and had piqued the interest of many UFO enthusiasts.
Many were quick to claim it was a “triangle UFO” which had been captured hovering above Earth. However, on closer inspection, it was revealed that it doesn't actually anything to do with aliens at all.
The 'UFO' is actually the Alvernia Studios, used for films, as well as features for video games and music projects.
