Greenland: ‘UFO’ aircraft appears to be attached to an iceberg
Alien hunters browsing through Google Maps have spotted something strange semi-buried beneath the ice of Greenland. Conspiracy theorists believe they have discovered a UFO in the snow of Greenland, claiming aliens crash-landed on our planet "millions of years ago".
The apparent object in question is triangular, and according to alien enthusiast Scott C Waring, the cockpit of the ship is clearly visible.
Now, Mr Waring is calling on Elon Musk to retrieve the spaceship in a bid to boost humanity's chances of getting to Mars.
Mr Waring wrote on his blog UFO Sightings Daily: "I found a triangle UFO that was attached to an iceberg floating off of Greenland.
"I used Google Earth map to find it. The ruler on the map states that the UFO is 68 meters across.
UFO 'which crashed millions of years ago' found in Greenland, conspiracy theorists claim
"It's possible this UFO crashed to Earth millions of years and got buried beneath a glacier that melted little by little, dropping fragments of itself into the ocean.
"The black line across the cockpit area is very obvious and shows us that this really is a craft, not a coincidence.
"The corners of the craft are perfectly equal and slightly rounded off. This triangle craft looks like there was ice above it, but apparently it melted off and only the side areas of ice remain still attached to it.
"Now if Elon Musk could just retrieve this craft, humanity could colonise Mars and other planets much faster."
However, on closer inspection, the 'spaceship' looks more like a glacier melting away due to the effects of climate change.
Mr Waring's sighting can be put down to a phenomenon known as pareidolia.
Pareidolia is a psychological phenomenon in which the brain recognises familiar shapes and patterns when there is not one there.
NASA said: "Pareidolia is the psychological phenomenon where people see recognisable shapes in clouds, rock formations, or otherwise unrelated objects or data.

"There are many examples of this phenomenon on Earth and in space."
Alien hunters in the scientific realm were recently left disappointed when a scan of more than 10 million stars found no evidence of extraterrestrials.
Astronomers using the Murchison Widefield Array (MWA) in Australia to search for signs of 'technosignatures' across the cosmos.
Technosignatures are signs of technology coming from a planet which could include satellites or radio waves emitting from the celestial body.
Chenoa Tremblay, a researcher with Australia’s Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO), said: "The MWA is a unique telescope, with an extraordinarily wide field-of-view that allows us to observe millions of stars simultaneously.
"We observed the sky around the constellation of Vela for 17 hours, looking more than 100 times broader and deeper than ever before.
"With this dataset, we found no technosignatures - no sign of intelligent life."
