What Is This Odd Black Object Captured on Google Earth?

For all we know, this could be just about anything, but it’s likely not a crashed UFO.

A Google Maps image shows a strange, disc-looking object from afar in the middle of nowhere in the mountains of Arizona.

A parked truck is located next to the circular-shaped object, located near the New Mexico border.

A video showing the picture was uploaded by the Secure Team (a channel that delves heavily into UFO conspiracy theories) to YouTube, as the Mirror reported. The channel claimed that the object landed in a “no-fly” zone.

Are you sure that is not a concrete structure with inside a lot of water tanks linked with pipes?

They wrote: “As I said, it could be a crash site, or it could be a testing site.”

The coordinates of the object is 31° 26’43″N 109° 4’30″W on Google Earth and Google Maps.

However, one user wrote that the area isn’t a no-fly zone, and it’s probably just a solar panel or maybe a water container.


“I managed to find this on google earth, and took a better look at it, there are some old disintegrating structures nearby and what looks like a solar panel, I would say it’s a water cistern,” Joshua Youngblood wrote. “It’s also right in the heart of Swaggart Spring. And It’s not a no fly zone.”

“Are you sure that is not a concrete structure with inside a lot of water tanks linked with pipes?” YouTube user Andrea Poggetti asked. “A sort of a big well? I’m a believer but i think that can be some of human this time.”

“There is a trail/road leading to it,” user Busterthe2 added. “It can’t be a recent crashed saucer or there wouldn’t be a well traveled trail leading to it.”
