'Mysterious sea creature' spotted on Google Earth

People believe they have spotted a mysterious sea creature in the waters around Antarctica.

Google Earth is known to show some interesting and also strange things if you look close enough, and now eagle-eyed viewers believe they’ve found something else worth investigating.

And we have to admit it’s a little creepy.

There are a bunch of islands around Antarctica, including Deception Island and Elephant Island. And while there are a few dark spots in the area one of them has caused quite a stir.

At first nothing seems too out of the ordinary, but once you zoom closer a mysterious green glow practically appears out of nowhere, the Express UK reports.

About 88m wide and 23m long, there is much speculation about what it could be.

Conspiracy theorists believe it’s a sea monster – with some suggesting it is the famous Kraken sea monster.

Others say it could be a submarine. But most agree it’s likely just a glitch in the camera.

It comes after alien hunters claimed they found proof a ‘UFO’ crash landed in Antarctica in March this year.

Located on South Georgia Island, a clip posted to Youtube channel Secure Team 10 and showing Google Earth images, examined what some thought might be evidence of a UFO landing.

“[It appears] to be some sort of massive elongated or cigar shaped object, that at some point, we don’t know when, came to a screeching halt in the snow, leaving behind it almost 1000 metre-long trail,” the video, which you can watch below, stated.
