A GOOGLE Maps user thinks they’ve found a ‘green portal to an alien planet’ near the Nazca lines in Peru.
A screenshot of the unusual green dot was posted on Reddit and some users think it looks extraterrestrial.
One commenter joked: “Congratulations human, you have found the portal to our world….”
And others discussed how the area had been connected to aliens in the past.
The Nazca lines were first “discovered” by archaeologists academically in 1927, and have proved mysterious ever since.
Around 1000 of the enormous drawings have been found across the desert, and are so big they can generally only be identified properly from the air.
It’s believed that they were created between 500BC and 500AD.
The purpose of the lines is still largely a mystery, but experts believe they may have served as messages to the gods.
It’s also possible that they were used for astronomical purposes by pre-Hispanic societies.
The reason for the unusual green dot in the desert is also up for debate.
One Reddit user suggested: “Maybe someone shone a powerful green laser pointer at an aircraft taking those images. Seems unlikely that there would be anyone in that deserted area to be doing that, though.
“A more likely possibility is that there was simply something reflective down there, which bounced the sun into the camera, and was brief enough to only be caught by the green pass (these types of images are composites of red/green/blue/intensity shots to increase the effective resolution of the final image).”
