A MYSTERIOUS ‘giant staircase’ discovered in the Antarctic could be proof of an alien invasion, according to conspiracy theorists.
Satellites images have revealed what appears to be a massive staircase leading up the side of a huge mountain.
The area is supposed to be a barren wasteland just off the coast of Antarctica, covered in a thick blanket of snow.
Now users on popular conspiracy theory website Godlike Productions are speculating as to what exactly the ripple patterns could be.
An anonymous user posted the image on the forum, explaining: “This morning, in the work van, we were talking about conspiracies, and one of them were about so many big names going to Antarctica out of the blue.
“I was bored so I pulled out Google Earth for a while, just exploring, when I came across something that looked like a giant staircase.”
Although he suggested it could be a glitch with the camera, several fascinating and far-fetched theories for how the steps appeared in the snow quickly emerged.
Some suggested the huge staircase could be part of a pyramid structure, with conspiracists believing Antarctica is the real site of the City of Atlantis.
While others claimed the lines were tracks left behind by a UFO.
“Buzz Aldrin is the guy who talked about the spaceships out by the moon when he was there. So why did they send him to Antarctica?
“Yes, to see if it’s the same ships he saw.
“Mind you I attribute it all to fallen angels and nephilim, not aliens. Strictly high tech demonic activity.”
One so-called “truther”, with the username Trinity, said: “Looks a lot like the tubes on Mars you see.”
And a couple of users questioned how the word ‘google’ appeared in the ice – although it was quickly pointed out this was a watermark over the Google Earth image.
One said: “Why does it look like it says Google next to the stairs?”
Another added: “Check it out, someone wrote google in the snow next to it.”
