A mysterious-looking structure in Egypt - captured on Google Earth - has had UFO enthusiasts fixated over their monitors, reaching for their X-Files encyclopaedias.

The images appear to show five circular structures in a pentagon-like formation, with a scissor-shaped building emerging from the middle of them.

A eyebrow-raising video entitled WHAT IS THIS? Mysterious Structure In Egypt On Google Earth! was posted to YouYube on April 5, attracting the attention of other puzzled users. After just a few days, the video has already attracted more than 140,000 views and numerous shares.

"This reminds me of Star Wars," commented user George Gerbanas.

"Thats where the saucers park," said another amused viewer.

The channel that posted the video online, Secureteam10, describes itself as the "source for the best in new UFO sighting videos, information on the government cover-up and the alien activity happening on and off our planet".

Unfortunately for the alien enthusiasts, there were others around with a less-than-exciting assessment of the images.

"It's too close to main street. I don’t know what is it, but I don't think it's a secret base," said one user.

"To me, this looks like a common sight here in Egypt, an anti-air (SAM) base. We see alot of these but smaller in size in cities and on coastal highways. That V-shaped ramp leads to a platform where the large domed radar should be," said another.

Meanwhile, Secureteam10 seems undeterred by the speculation, and states on its YouTube channel that users can send "help us continue the good fight for disclosure".

Egyptian aliens beware - your cover may have been blown.
