A HUGE structure has been discovered in Antarctica – and it’s baffling scientists.
Conspiracy theorists insist that the Google Earth image proves the South Pole was once home to an ancient city.
The claims come just months after an image appeared to show a pyramid on Antarctica – Google Earth
It appears to be 400ft across and man-made, with its discovery added to a mounting list of evidence which claims there could be a hidden city frozen underneath the surface.
Antarctica is largely uninhabited due to its freezing temperatures.
Scientists initially suspected the strange mound was sastrugi – sharp grooves formed on snow by strong winds.
But this phenomena normally has short, sharp, edges and the mystery structure appears to be oval.
It comes just months after a huge pyramid-like shape was discovered on the freezing continent.
Rumours of a hidden city underneath the ice have been circulating for years.
Just last week scientists discovered a massive object lurking beneath frozen wasteland in Antarctica.
The huge and mysterious “anomaly” stretches for 151 miles across and could be buried 848 metres underneath the land.
Researchers were baffled by the discovery, which some people claim could be a evidence hidden civilisation with “traces of a human settlement underneath the ice” revealed in photographs released by NASA.
Conspiracy theorists and even some scientists claim the freezing continent is actually the home of the legendary Lost City of Atlantis.

The theory alleges that movements in the Earth’s crust meant that large parts of Antarctica were ice-free 12,000 years ago and people could have lived there.
Allegedly, a society could have existed before coming to an end with the last Ice Age which froze over the continent.
And this could have been Atlantis, a mythical city founded by people who were half god and half human which was first mentioned by Greek philosopher Plato in 360BC.
Speculation over the location of the legendary long-lost city is rife, with others believing it to have been near the Greek island of Santorini.
Antarctica’s secret city was apparently ‘”confirmed” by an ancient map called the Piri Reis map, compiled in 1513 from military intelligence.
It appears to show the Antarctic coast hundreds of years before it was discovered, but was denounced by many scholars at the time.
Conspiracy theorists went wild earlier this year when a video claiming to be from the lost city emerged.
It appeared to show extensive ancient ruins hidden in the ice, and was a video supposedly left behind by a California TV crew who have been missing since 2002.
Archaeologist Jonathan Gray claimed the US government is trying to block the video from being seen because it reveals there is a “massive archaeological dig under way two miles beneath the ice”.
But that’s not the wildest claim – with several online websites claiming that there is a city in Antarctica and HITLER knew about it, making it a secret Nazi base.

The theory goes that the Nazis claimed an area of Antarctica as German territory and sent an expedition there.
They then allegedly mapped the area and discovered a network of rivers and caves, one of which led to a large geothermal lake.
A city-sized base was built there, called “Base 22 or New Berlin”, and supposedly was home to not only Nazis but also the Illuminati.
But things get even weirder with suggestions that the Germans discovered abandoned alien technology OR contacted aliens, and used it to make super weapons.
And some people think the rumoured base still exists, with the Germans, aliens, and the Illuminati planning to launch a New World Order from it.
In October, explorers discovered the remnants of a secret Nazi base hidden deep in the Arctic, just 600 miles from the North Pole.
