Alien hunters thought they’d seen something extra-terrestrial in a satellite picture of the Jet Propulsion Laboratory
A WILD internet conspiracy theory that Nasa was hiding a flying saucer in its secretive Californian research lab has been debunked.
UFO hunters were in a tizzy when a satellite picture appeared to show a UFO parked up in the Jet Propulsion Laboratory.
The Google Earth pictures revealed a silver, disc-shaped object in its grounds.
But after a whirlwind of alien rumours, one Nasa worker has come forward to reveal the truth.
Engineer Nacer Chahat took to Twitter to share a selfie with the “flying saucer”.
He wrote: “Here is what you think is a UFO.
“The only alien is me.”
But UFO-hoax-buster’s UFO Of Interest earlier claimed that the saucer was actually the Mesa facility’s 3000 Foot Range antenna.
The Jet Propulsion Laboratory is home to the Mesa Antenna Measurement Facility, which tracks and sends communications to aircraft.
Turns out, it’s just an upside down antenna reflector lying on the floor.
The labs, which are dotted along streets with incredible names like called Mars Yard II and Pioneer road are surrounded by residential communities.
It’s just the latest in “alien sightings” picked up by the general public.
Just yesterday a viral video purported to show a glowing UFO was spotted hovering over a Mexican volcano that had just erupted.
