A weird video of a 3,000-mile-long straight and skinny cloud spotted on Google Earth has left viewers scratching their heads.
The strange feature keeps appearing in different locations around the globe, caught by satellite cameras and analysed by conspiracy theorists and sky-watchers.
In a video, uploaded on YouTube by the channel MrMBB333, various images of the phenomena are shown including one from November 2020.
Discussing the weird object, the YouTuber says: “If you go up here into Asia, that spans over 3,000 miles and here’s the thing, you go to Google Earth and you look at Google Earth today – this is right now.”
The Earth as visible from space is displayed, with the mystery white line seared right across the continent.
He says: “There’s that feature again and once again spanning over 3,000 miles.
“We saw this back in 2019… and now we’re seeing it again.
“I don’t know if this is something that is occurring every day or if this something that is there all the time.”
He describes it as “pretty extraordinary” but does not have a theory of what it could be.
The footage has been watched more than 27,000 times since it was uploaded onto his channel on November 9 and sparked a lively discussion.
Someone who appeared to believe in the conspiracy theory about weather control said: “Line in the sky is a ‘laser beam’ biggest problem for hypersonic speeds in aircraft is friction.
“Whoever trying to fix that by altering the atmospheric pressure.”
“The lenticular clouds and the roll clouds are getting lower and lower,” mused another viewer.
Another fan noted: “If you check a weather radar. It shows a line exactly where that line cloud is on Google Earth but it’s hovering over The Ust Ilimsk Reservoir.
“And it’s temperature is different only on the part hovering over the reservoir.”
“Could be a trail from a meteor,” suggested a third commenter.
