Conspiracy theorists claim a UFO crash landed in Antarctica

  • 07/03/2018

A group who call themselves 'alien hunters' have claimed a UFO crash landed in Antarctica, and have provided video and images in an attempt to prove it.

Youtube channel Secure Team 10 posted footage from Google Earth of a trail in the snow, which a narrator says was likely left by "some sort of massive elongated or cigar shaped object".

But a geology expert has discredited the theory, saying it's most likely to be images of the aftermath of an avalanche.

The video 'WHAT crashed over the Antarctic' has been viewed over a million times.

"This trail here is extremely sharp and almost looks like it was created by something artificial," the narrators says.

The trail follows from a collapsed mountain peak which the narrators says is "damaged".

He says it looks as though an object came out of the sky and hit the mountain.

"It doesn't look like your typical trail made by a snowball or a piece of ice."

But an expert has discredited the claims, saying it's likely to aftermath of an avalanche.

Senior lecturer in physical geography at Keele University Dr Richard Waller told the Mail Online:

"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."
