A rare and at the same time strange sighting has been reported by UFO hunters who claim that a supposed UFO crash can be observed using Google Earth – and the site has tanks guarding it.

Under harsh and unpredictable weather conditions lies the McMurdo Station, the main US research station in Antarctica. It might sound odd, but this particular US settlement became renowned after some UFO hunters discovered using Google Earth, what seems to be the landing or crash site of a mysterious craft that appears to be guarded by four snowy shapes, strongly resembling a battery of tanks.

A visible trail was left behind by the crashed object that is covered in snow, indicating the fact that the crash occurred sometime before the picture was taken by Google Earth. The presence of the tanks reveal that the site they’re guarding has to be truly valuable, and it might be possible that the military already took over the content of the UFO when the image was captured.


After it was made public on February 15, 2012 by Valentin Degterev, the Google Earth image was deliberately altered in order to mask the ground vehicles and the crashed UFO. Some people who were aware of such a consequence managed to capture a few screen shots along with videos showing  how the spot looked before it got blurred, as well as its coordinates.

If you look at the following coordinates: E / S using Google Earth, the UFO crash site appears, but apparently the craft and the tanks are missing for obvious reasons. After this case caused a stir among UFO enthusiasts, the image was deliberately altered and is now showing only a few hints of what it used to be. Fortunately, a video was released showing the spot with the UFO and its guardians, along with the coordinates which can be seen at the bottom-right of the video.

Nearby images reveal another mysterious sighting, just right of the station. Named “Saucer over Mt. Erebus, summer 1974”, the image reveals a gigantic saucer-like shape over the top of the mountain. Could this be an omen telling about the UFO phenomenon in the Antarctic region?


Antarctica is an unhospitable place for humans, vast and mostly desolate, so the hypothesis of a UFO base there doesn’t seem too far from reality. Many UFOlogists believe that Nazi Germany had a few operational bases in the Arctic during WWII, where they developed advanced propulsion technology, engine research, flying wing craft and the AS6 experimental winged aircraft.

The first US Air Force UFO investigation group realized that the advanced flying wing aeronautical designs of the Germans were similar to some UFOs described in reports. The Nazi “foo fighters”, a very unusual aerial phenomenon, were seen by both Axis and the Allies and the reports told of this flying saucers doing heavy damage to Allied aircraft using electromagnetic disruption, a technology similar to today’s electromagnetic pulse weapons (EMP).

In 1959, after investigating into this matter, Captain Edward J. Ruppelt, the first head of Project Blue Book, wrote that:

When WWII ended, the Germans had several radical types of aircraft and guided missiles under development. The majority were in the mist preliminary stages, but they were the only known craft that could even approach the performance of objects reported by UFO observers.


I have seen enough of their designs and production plans to realize that if the Germans had managed to prolong the war some months longer, we would have been confronted with a set of entirely new and deadly developments in air warfare.

With an extensive background in UFO reports and secret bases, the Antarctic region might hold some secrets even today, and it’s likely that some of them are still active and ongoing. Could the images presented above reveal a failed saucer test? Is it possible that the US or Russia discovered the Nazi secrets regarding saucer-discs technology?
