UFO hunters have been sent into a frenzy by this image, which apparently shows an “alien spaceship” taking off from an underground base.
Conspiracy theorists believe the mysterious new snap – taken by a hiker – is proof aliens are hiding away in mountains across the US.
UFO blogger Scott C Waring claims the location of the “base” – in Glacier, Washington – means flying saucers can “come and go” without being spotted.
He wrote: “A UFO was seen over Glacier last week that appeared out of thin air over one of the mountain tops.
“The UFO does appear to be in two separate sections that probably unite when moving.”
The man who took the image, who wishes to remain anonymous, says he only noticed the “spaceship” after looking back over his photos.
He told UFO Sightings Daily: “I was with my uncle in Glacier, Washington exploring up on an old coal mining road.
“Having never been up there before, I took my cell phone with me and was snapping photos of the scenery around me.
“I was taking pictures of what I believe is Skyline Ridge, and I took several photos in a row.
“Only one contained what I believe to be a spaceship of some sort over the mountain to the right.”
Is there a similar ‘alien base’ at a mountain peak in Nepal?
The area may have been ‘deliberately covered up by Google’
Earlier this year, UFO hunters claimed they had found proof of a secret alien base at a mountain peak in the Himalayas.
A large part of the Kang Tanga Mountain in Nepal is blacked out by mapping software Google Earth – sparking speculation of a cover-up.
Mr Waring said: “Google may have deliberately covered up this area so that we cannot see a top-secret US government military facility.”
