UFO Hunters Claim They’ve Discovered An Alien Spaceship On An Isolated Island Near Antarctica

Somewhere in the remote wilds of Antarctica, a strange apparent object is spotted seemingly abandoned on the frozen floor. So, using satellite technology, enthusiasts thousands of miles away speculate on its mysterious origins. But is the phenomenon evidence of visitors from outer space, or is something more mundane responsible?

Ever since humankind first began looking to the stars, we have dreamed about alien civilizations that might exist in the farthest reaches of the universe. And as time has passed, our obsession has grown from science fiction into a genuine search for extraterrestrial life.

Today, scientists around the world conduct experiments designed to communicate with potential civilizations on distant planets. And with radio telescopes scanning the skies, some nations have spent millions sending probes and messages out past our solar system and into the great unknown.

At the same time, there also exist a very different collection of individuals investigating the possibilities of alien life. In private residences across the globe, a core group of enthusiasts dedicate their lives to finding proof that we are not alone. Often convinced that evidence of extraterrestrials is being deliberately kept from the public, these devotees are determined to reveal what they perceive to be the truth.

One such set of individuals is known as Secureteam – a United States-based research group that claims to work to expose a government cover-up surrounding extraterrestrial life. To that end, members of the group have released dozens of videos on their YouTube channel, each detailing their forays into the unexplained.

More than 1.3 million people currently subscribe to Secureteam10 for regular updates of weird news from around the world. And on March 3, 2018, viewers were treated to a particularly shocking video. Apparently, researchers scanning Google Earth had spotted something mysterious on South Georgia Island – a remote, sparsely populated area of Antarctica close to the southern tip of Argentina.

Narrated by a man known only as Tyler, the video focuses in on a strip of mountainous land cut off from the Antarctic by the freezing Atlantic Ocean. There, eagle-eyed researchers had spotted a strange apparent object resting on the surface of the ice. So, could the unidentified mass be alien in origin?

In the video, Tyler spells out the details of the discovery. “It appears to me at least to be some sort of massive, elongated or cigar-shaped object that at some point, and we don’t know when, came to a screeching halt in the snow, leaving behind it almost a 1,000-meter-long trail,” he explains.

And that wasn’t all. After following the trail left behind by the alleged object, researchers discovered an area of mountainside that appeared to have suffered some kind of damage. What’s more, it looked as if the supposed object had traveled in a straight line from that location in a manner perhaps more typically associated with an artificial object than any kind of natural phenomenon.

Had the apparent object fallen out of the sky, crashed into the mountainside and skidded to a dramatic halt? Well, Taylor certainly seems to think so, and in the video he presents what appears to be some convincing evidence. For example, a close-up reveals a strangely angular nature to the bizarre discovery.

“We can see on top of it we have a lot of rigid and sharp ends, also casting shadows over to the side,” Taylor explains. “Even the shadows themselves at their longest, specifically this one at the end, measure around 12 meters long.” The tracks were also estimated to be about 30 feet wide.

So what exactly had Secureteam discovered buried under the ice? Over the course of the video, Taylor outlines a number of theories. In one, he posits that the assumed object is of aerial origin, stranded in Antarctica after a crash. In another hypothesis, he suggests that the alleged object may have actually burst out of the mountain itself – perhaps after having been buried there by persons unknown.

Interestingly, the researchers have been unable to determine whether or not the supposed object was permanently abandoned on the Antarctic ice. In fact, because the image is the result of a single satellite snapping pictures as it orbits the Earth, it’s impossible to tell if the anomaly was captured mid-movement or after it had apparently ground to a halt.

Either way, it isn’t the first time that strange goings-on in Antarctica have been attributed to visitors from another world. Back in April 2018 a writer for the website UFO Sightings Hotspot claimed to have seen something unusual off the coast of the frozen continent. Allegedly, it was an iceberg with so many strange features that it might not have been natural at all.

According to the writer, the discovery did not line up with any of the usual geological classifications associated with icebergs. Moreover, old satellite images of the area showed that the feature was a relatively recent addition to the landscape. “This object is really peculiar,” the article claimed, “and looks like a vessel disguised as an iceberg.”

Meanwhile, in February 2018 researchers at Secureteam had made another strange discovery in Antarctica. Apparently, they had used a commercially available heat map to identify an area of unexplained activity in a remote part of the continent. And if the research group are to be believed, the anomaly could be proof of a secret underground base.

According to some conspiracy theorists, Antarctica is something of a hotspot for these supposed secret bases. Why? Because it provides an area away from prying eyes where, it’s suggested, the government can carry out all manner of nefarious deeds – including dealing with alien technology and crashed UFOs. But is there any truth to these claims?

Unsurprisingly, to date the United States government has always denied having engaged in any secret dealings with visitors from other worlds. But of course, that hasn’t stopped internet theorists from continuing to speculate – and easy access to satellite footage from around the world has seemed to further feed their imaginations.

So, what is really shown in Secureteam’s video of the strange apparent object and its trail across the ice? Although UFO enthusiasts seem keen to deem the phenomenon alien in origin, others have been quick to suggest a more prosaic explanation. In fact, one commenter – who claims to have formerly been a photographer at a nearby research station – attributes the anomaly to nothing more than a quirk of the local geology.

As the user explains in the comments section of the video, “I can confirm 100 percent that what you see in the image is just the result of a glacial slide. Sorry.” However, that doesn’t seem to have dented the popularity of the video, which has racked up some 2,300,000 views to date. And while the vid is unlikely to convince any skeptics, it’s enough to keep many dreaming that the truth really is out there.

But remarkably, this isn’t the only discovery that has sparked conspiracy theories of alien spaceships. Treasure hunter Darrell Miklos, for example, claimed that he’d identified such an object hidden beneath the waves of the Bermuda Triangle. And the evidence, you may well find, is rather compelling.

It was actually a search for old English shipwrecks that had led Miklos to the Bahamas. But as the treasure hunter roved the seabed inside a hi-tech submersible, he laid eyes on something unexpected. Incredibly, he’d found a vast and unfathomable structure that appears to be neither natural nor manmade. What the structure is, where it has come from and who – or what – may have built it were a complete mystery…

The Bermuda Triangle – also nicknamed the Devil’s Triangle – has a notorious reputation for weird happenings. The area in question covers a triangular stretch of ocean between the southern tip of Florida and the Caribbean islands of Bermuda and Puerto Rico. And it is, according to popular myth, a vortex of unexplained disasters. In fact, some 75 aircraft together with oceangoing vessels numbering in the hundreds have gone missing there – and yet nobody really knows why.

There are theories, of course, and they range from the mundane to the outright bizarre. Some blame the disappearances on natural forces such as the Gulf Stream. Others posit otherworldly involvement. And while skeptics may balk at such outlandish conjecture, in 2018 Miklos located an enormous Unidentified Submerged Object (USO) on the seabed inside the triangle. Could it be, then, that those alien-related theories were suddenly rendered not as farfetched as they first appear?

A 55-year-old professional salvager, Miklos has spent decades roaming the oceans in search of sunken treasure. Indeed, nautical travel appears to be in his blood. At the age of seven, he snuck on board a boat jointly belonging to his uncle and father and joined them on a mission to salvage NASA booster rockets. Then later, his father introduced him to Gordon Cooper, a famous astronaut, and the pair became good friends.

In fact, starting in 1997, Miklos and Cooper collaborated on a string of projects that took them all over the Americas. They explored and recovered shipwrecks in the Caribbean. They staged expeditions to ancient ruins in southern Mexico. And they built boats in the U.S., Canada and beyond. Then, in 2004, Cooper died at the age of 77. But before he died, he apparently gifted a collection of rare treasure maps to Miklos.

Cooper, who participated in Project Mercury, became the first U.S. citizen to be televised from space. And, interestingly, part of his work for NASA involved long-range espionage. Specifically, he was assigned the task of scanning the Earth and its oceans for unusual magnetic readings that might indicate the presence of Soviet nuclear facilities. But Cooper then allegedly used that data to compile treasure maps.

Then, over four decades later, the maps formed the basis for Cooper’s Treasure – Miklos’ Discovery Channel documentary series. In the first season, the maps led Miklos to what appeared to be an anchor belonging to a Christopher Columbus vessel. And he subsequently located scores of shipwrecks – with a value of millions of dollars. However, it was during filming for the second season that Cooper’s maps led Miklos to something very different indeed.

“I investigated some of Gordon’s [Cooper’s] charts,” Miklos told the Daily Mail in August 2018. “[And] I realized that there was something else on there that [he] was referring to.” Indeed, instead of labeling this particular anomaly a shipwreck, Cooper had apparently marked it with the compelling words “unidentified object.”

But it wasn’t until Miklos got up close to the object that he reportedly realized quite how unusual it is. “It’s a formation unlike anything I’ve ever seen related to shipwreck material. It was too big for that,” he told the British newspaper. “It was also something that was completely different from anything that I’ve seen that was made by nature.”

Miklos had stumbled upon an enormous USO that resembled a “steep wall cliff,” with 15 “arms” in three groups of five. Each protrusion was, the explorer said, “the size of a gun on a battleship.” And as he explained to the Daily Mail, “I have years of experience at doing this, [and] we’ve identified multiple different types of shipwreck material. [But] this doesn’t match or look anything like that.”

The object is also covered in a dense layer of coral, which is itself something of a mystery. Scientists working for Miklos claim that reefs can’t grow in such formations on their own – and therefore that they must have formed on top of a substructure. The experts in addition say that the coral might be thousands of years old, which suggests that the structure below the waves cannot be manmade. But if that’s the case, then what could it be?

Miklos wondered if Cooper might have secretly known what it is – or at least had an inkling. As the treasure hunter told the Daily Mail, “It made sense to me why it wasn’t identified as a shipwreck [on the chart]. He [Gordon Cooper] had to mean it might be something from another world. Gordon believed in aliens. He believed that we had visitors from other planets. He also believed that a lot of these things landed in this particular part of the world.”

Certainly, Cooper professed to have sighted numerous UFOs during his career in the U.S. Air Force and was vocal in his belief in extraterrestrial phenomena. He also claimed that the U.S. government was hiding critical information about UFOs. And he believed that aliens had handed on technology to Earth governments via emissaries from other worlds.

Speaking to a United Nations panel in 1985, Cooper urged further research. “I believe that these extra-terrestrial vehicles and their crews are visiting this planet,” he said. “I feel that we need to have a top-level, coordinated program to scientifically collect and analyze data from all over the Earth concerning any type of encounter – and to determine how best to interface with these visitors in a friendly fashion.”

ADVERTISEMENT

Of course, it is easy to dismiss Cooper’s assertions as fanciful, but Miklos, for one, believes that he was sane. “The man I knew wasn’t a whack job. He wasn’t hallucinating. And he wasn’t making things up to gain attention,” Miklos told the Daily Mail. “He was an honest, straightforward individual who only wanted to investigate and explore the possibilities of the unknown, even if it meant risking his professional career.”

But what of the history of the Bermuda Triangle itself? Well, its earliest documented mysterious event dates to the 15th century and appears to have involved a couple of UFO sightings. On his inaugural voyage to the Americas, Christopher Columbus was sailing through the triangle when he reportedly saw a large, fiery phenomenon crash into the sea. Then, just weeks after that, the famous explorer saw an eerie, inexplicable light off towards the horizon.

Since then, more than 2,300 people have lost their lives in the triangle in strange or unexplained circumstances. One of the most notorious cases is that of five American Grumman Avenger torpedo bombers and their total of 14 crew, all of whom disappeared on December 5, 1945, while flying over the mysterious area. A Martin Mariner flying boat with a crew of 13 was then dispatched to find the missing men – but that, too, disappeared. Could UFOs have been involved?

Many colorful theories have arisen in a bid to explain such disappearances. Indeed, one such theory even suggests that remnants of sunken technology from the lost civilization of Atlantis are to blame. However, it is quite likely that nothing mysterious is happening at all. Considering the fact that the Bermuda Triangle figures as among the world’s busiest shipping routes, the number of wrecks in the area is probably not statistically significant.

This doesn’t, however, mean that Miklos’ USO should not be investigated further. And yet much may depend on whether the Discovery Channel orders a new season of Cooper’s Treasure from AMPLE Entertainment – the production company responsible for the program. “I don’t feel like we’ve even scratched the surface of what’s in Cooper’s files,” said one of the company’s founders, Ari Mark, to the Daily Mail. “But that’s what we hope to do in a third season.”

Naturally, Miklos wants to solve the supposed mystery too. “I want to see what it is, because it may be nature-made, just a freak of nature,” he said. “But given its placement in this particular part of the Caribbean, and given what Gordon [Cooper]… told me about visitors from another planet, and the things that I’ve seen, I think it’s definitely worth investigating.”
