An aerial image found using Google satellite imagery this weekend has caused a stir in the UFO community. The photo depicts a runway claimed to be at Dyess Air Force Base in Texas.
The image seems to show an anomaly blending into the runway’s brown background as it faces towards a parked B-1 bomber.
I found something at Dyess that I had never seen before – a single cloaked B-1 bomber
And UFO conspiracy theorists were quick to claim this is actually evidence of aliens offering their advanced cloaking technology to the US military.
Self-styled extraterrestrial expert Scott Waring was reportedly responsible for the discovery.
And he took to his UFO Sightings Daily site to speculate wildly about his latest find.
He said: “I was looking for UFOs and alien bases using Google Earth today and came across something that just blew me away.
“I found something at Dyess AFB in Texas. Its a B1 bomber base.
“I used to work on B1 bombers back in Ellsworth AFB [Air Force Base] – a Strategic Air Command high-security base.
“I found something at Dyess that I had never seen before – a single cloaked B1 bomber.
“If you rotate the map in a 360 degree angle, you will easily see the second B1 that is cloaked.
“It makes sense, you see the black paint already on the B1 is clocking technology that absorbs radar so it wont reflect a signal back and be seen, thus its nearly invisible.
“It really makes sense to use alien technology on a B1 and create the most perfect aircraft ever.
“This B-1 has alien tech making it capable of becoming invisible.”

The outlandish claims quickly attracted scores of comments on Mr Waring’s YouTube channel.
YouTube viewer Eric Kulp appeared convinced by theory, commenting: “Interesting. We have had optical cloaking tech since the early 80s. It’s why when you hear a jet but don’t see it sometime.”
However, Slick Perspective had a more prosaic explanation for the so-called discovery, writing: “Google Earth image sometimes store old images in their cache.
“When they took a new image, sometimes it overlaps the old one, creating a ghostly image.”
And, in fact, he is almost certainly correct with this reasoning, as such phenomena are a common occurrence with Google Maps.
Such sightings of “alien craft” are almost always cases of wishful thinking or an intriguing psychological phenomenon called pareidolia.
This is now known to be the tendency for an inaccurate perception of a stimulus.
This can result in people perceiving shapes in clouds, in inanimate objects and abstract patterns.
