A stunned woman’s eerie Google Earth discovery has left people convinced there is finally proof of alien life after she spotted an unidentifiable strange figure lurking in the backseat of a passing car.
Crystal Patterson made the creepy discovery while using the popular photo-mapping site to locate a local garage sale.
The 45-year-old had been searching for directions but couldn’t help notice an odd-looking character in a random vehicle’s back window.

Gobsmacked Crystal asked: "Can someone please tell me what I’m looking at in the backseat?
"The driver looked naked, so I zoomed in because I’m nosy, and thought the distortion of the figure in the back. My first thought was it was an alien.
“The only reason I found this is because I was scoping out the location of a garage sale, which was located at the property in the background."
It sparked debate online among locals in the town of Mapleton, in Maine, US, with Colette Berlin asking: "How on earth did you spot that?" and Shay Nelle adding: "Clearly an alien."
But not everyone was convinced and another resident joked the mysterious being was actually "Mr Potatohead".

Earlier this year, one site user claimed to have found compelling evidence of a UFO buried in the desert in Algeria.
He claimed the mystery star-shaped land formation showed "an ancient spaceship that has landed and been buried over the millennia".
