Uri Geller has warned NASA to prepare for a mass alien invasion of Earth 'soon'.

The legendary spoon-bender reckons scientists mapping radio waves who discovered a giant energy source 4,000 light years away may have stumbled upon the chit-chat of 'superior’ beings from outer space.

And Uri, 75, reckons the aliens are heading our way.

He announced on Instagram: "A team mapping radio waves in the universe has discovered something unusual that releases a giant burst of energy three times an hour and it’s unlike anything astronomers have seen before.

"No doubt in my mind that this is connected to alien intelligence way way superior than ours.

"Start deciphering their messages! They are preparing us for a mass landing soon! #nasa #hoova #spectra #spectra #aliens.’’

Scientists said they have never seen anything like the 'spooky' new phenomenon before.

They believe it could be a neutron star or white dwarf – collapsed cores of stars – with an ultra-powerful magnetic field known as a 'magnetar'.

Astrophysicist Dr Natasha Hurley-Walker, from Curtin University in Australia, said: "This object was appearing and disappearing over a few hours during our observations,’’ she said.

"That was completely unexpected.

"It was kind of spooky for an astronomer because there’s nothing known in the sky that does that.

"And it’s really quite close to us — about 4,000 light years away. It’s in our galactic backyard.’’

She said she believes it is an 'ultra-long period magnetar'.

"It’s a type of slowly spinning neutron star that has been predicted to exist theoretically,’’ she said.

"But nobody expected to directly detect one like this because we didn’t expect them to be so bright.

"Somehow it’s converting magnetic energy to radio waves much more effectively than anything we’ve seen before.’’

Last month Uri said he was convinced aliens are preparing to 'make contact' with the human race.

He said: "They will probably land on the White House lawn or somewhere. All our science fiction films about alien encounters will come true.

"I don’t think we are talking about thousands or even hundreds of years. If I had to guess, a rational and logical guess, I would say 60 to 75 years it’s going to happen.’’
