Mysterious five-mile-long 'UFO' on Google Maps 'could be lost city of Atlantis', bonkers conspiracy theorist claims

AN ALIEN-HUNTING conspiracy theorist claims to have found a five-mile-long UFO in the middle of the sea.

Scott C. Waring revealed images of a disk-like dome shape spotted near Peru and believes it's the "right size and shape to be the lost city of Atlantis".

"I have long believed (it) to be an alien ship that was floating on the ocean, then later submerged," he wrote on his sketchy blog UFO Sightings Daily.

The self-proclaimed UFOlogist thinks it's proof of "ancient aliens" and says their technology is just "sitting there on the bottom of the ocean".

Using digital rulers, he reckons the perfect circle is about five miles wide.

The dubious spotting was noticed just off the Nazca Desert in southern Peru.

Nazca is actually home to the so-called Nazca Lines, a bunch of geoglyphs in the soil.

They date back to around 500 BC and AD 500.

Waring can't help but link the two, saying: "Those Nazca Lines are said to be drawings to welcome the god.

"Back then such alien technology flying though the sky could easily be mistaken for gods."
