Google Maps user spots ‘UFO casually flying over suburban England’

A Google Maps user reckons they have spotted a “UFO flying over suburban England”.

The internet browser uploaded the image to Reddit, which appears to show a shiny saucer-shaped object hovering over a row of houses.

It was uploaded with the tagline: “Just randomly found a UFO flying over suburban England.”

Other responders to the post were not so sure that the OP had actually spotted a UFO, though.

One wrote: “I see this happen a lot with reflections on google maps, a lot of cars have this if you look.”

A second agreed with this theory, writing: “Someone’s conservatory [glass roofed extension, see neighbours.]”

The jury is still out on whether the image shows a UFO. Stock image

A third suggested: “Looks more like camera damage.”

Other Reddit users were similarly convinced that the image does not show an alien spacecraft.

One wrote: “It’s an Unidentified Flying Object. Is it some sort of spaceship? Pretty sure it’s not.”

Another joked that it could be the “timelord”, referring to Doctor Who.
