The “suspected UFO crash site” has sparked a frenzy of debate after images of what appeared to be a mysterious craft were found on Google Maps. The strange object was found on Starbuck Island in the south-central Pacific Ocean. A YouTuber who runs the channel MrMBB333 discussed the alleged crash site in a video captioned: “Possible UFO Crashsite on one of the MOST remote islands on Earth far away from Humans!”
The video has since recorded nearly 50,000 views as viewers debate the origin of the object.
The YouTuber said: “On the west side of the island, you are going to see what looks like a crashed UFO.
“I don’t know how else to describe it. You are going to see a long skid mark in the sand that extends a mile.
“If you follow that skid mark, there is an object that does not look familiar.”
He claimed the object was measured at 40-foot wide and 50-foot long.
The YouTuber continued: “It appears like something may have crash-landed and it’s still sitting there. It looks to be very old. I’ll leave that up to you to decide.
“It’s on Google Earth. It looks like some sort of saucer. This island is thousands of miles away from any human activity.
“There is a feature on top of the object that looks like it is of intelligent design.”
Some pointed out the uninhabited Starbuck Island was used by guano miners in the 19th century and the object could be the “remains of the sheds and reservoirs”.
One person said: “Those are just ruins, look up the history of the island!”
This comes as US senators anticipate a formal Pentagon report into UFO sightings by the end of June.
Speaking about the report, former Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe told Fox News last month “there are a lot more sightings” than the public is aware of.
He said: “When we talk about sightings, we are talking about objects that have seen by Navy or Air Force pilots, or have been picked up by satellite imagery that frankly engage in actions that are difficult to explain.
“Movements that are hard to replicate that we don’t have the technology for. Or travelling at speeds that exceed the sound barrier without a sonic boom.”
