Google Earth is probably the best thing to happen to alien hunting in the last 100 years. With a simple click of the mouse, users can explore far-flung places and look for signs of alien activity across the globe.
There’s usually not much to be found, but every once in a while, true believers get lucky and find what they consider to be compelling evidence.
Last week, UFO hunters using Google Earth found this bizarre-looking complex in the desert just outside of Cairo, Egypt.
The complex contains two large, pointed buildings and some mysterious structures in circular formations.
As you might imagine, there is a shortage of facts surrounding the purpose of these buildings, which means that speculation is now running rampant online.
Some argue that these buildings play a role in a government conspiracy.
Less dramatic theorists have pointed out that they could be part of a movie set, presumably for the upcoming Star Wars film.

Regardless of their purpose, it’s hard to deny the inherent freakiness of finding two odd-looking buildings in the middle of the desert.
