Google Earth ‘explorer’ makes bizarre claim he found 960ft ‘abandoned cargo ship’ in Antarctica – here’s the truth

ONE Google Earth user has claimed to have discovered an abandoned ship in Antarctica – the truth is much simpler.

Scott C. Waring claims to have discovered a missing ship near the south pole, but it’s really just a giant iceberg.

A Youtuber shared an image of Google Earth with the aim of finding a "lost ship."

A YouTuber shared an image of Google Earth with the aim of finding a “lost ship”.

Waring, who also set the record for saying he spotted a pink alien on Mars, shared his recent alleged findings on YouTube.

“This abandoned cargo ship is probably on its way to being recycled,” he said.

“There was probably a storm so the tug cut it off and I found it here in Antarctica,” he added.

The self-proclaimed alien expert shared several images on Google Earth to back up his claim of a so-called “cargo ship” near an ice-covered land.

In the video, Waring identifies a dark gray area that he thinks could be “some kind of nuclear submarine”, though he adds that he could be confused as he is not a “marine”. army”.

He then asserted that it was likely a cargo ship, with the raised area identified as the “captain’s residence”.

Waring tried to prove his claim by measuring the size of the “ship” and assuming it was about 967 feet long.

The YouTuber later released a statement that the “ship” as well as some of the surrounding area had at some point disappeared.

“In October 2011, it was there and two months later we didn’t see anything. It disappeared, everything disappeared, it disappeared,” he said.

Despite the content creator’s claims, users in the comments said they couldn’t see anything but the tape.

One YouTuber wrote: “I only see the tape… Let’s focus on the real video.”

The "transport" actually a giant iceberg near Antarctica.
