A Google Earth image has sparked rumors of a nearly 5-mile-long unidentified flying object (UFO) resting undisturbed at the bottom of the Pacific Ocean after an alien hunter posted about it.

The image featuring a disk-like dome shape piqued the interest of other alien hunters after Scott C. Waring, a self-proclaimed UFO researcher, posted about it on his blog, UFO Sightings Daily. While there are no credible reports on the finding, Waring claimed the oddity that was spotted on the satellite mapping service is "100% proof of ancient aliens and the technology is just sitting there on the bottom of the ocean."

"Now there is a 7km UFO sitting at the bottom of the ocean. It [is] next to a very mysterious location… Nazca, Peru famous for the giant drawings in the dirt that are hundreds of meters long," Waring wrote in his blog post.

The scrutineer used a measuring feature on Google Earth that showed the diameter of the disk to be 7.35 kilometers, which is roughly 4.5 miles, according to Coast to Coast AM.

"If you look carefully at the 5 mile UFO, you will see a dome structure at its center that is higher than the rest of the disk. Thats the classic disk design we have all heard about," the ardent UFO hunter further noted.

Waring regularly posts UFO theories on his blog and sleuths through images to find evidence of aliens having visited our planet. He made netizens raise an eyebrow last month when he shared a photo and claimed it was an alien lolling away on Mars.

As Waring explained his recent find of a "5 mile UFO," he also suggested the circular anomaly could be "the lost city of Atlantis."

"Those Nazca lines are said to be drawings to welcome the god. Back then such alien technology flying though the sky could easily be mistaken for gods. Its obvious that the two are connected," he hypothesized. "As I remember, this circular shape is also the right size and shape to be the lost city of Atlantis, which I have long believed to be and alien ship that was floating on the ocean, then later submerged."
