A TREASURE hunter has made an «astonishing» discovery in the depths of the Bermuda Triangle that he believes is evidence of aliens landing on Earth.
Darrell Miklos uses secret maps created by his ex-NASA astronaut pal Gordon Cooper to unearth shipwrecks in the briny deep.
But during one of these trawls, intrepid explorer Darrell stumbled across huge mysterious structures that he thinks could change how we view our place in the universe forever.
The huge unidentified submerged «spaceship» is covered in 15 unusual «protrusions» — which Darrell describes as «unlike anything I have ever seen».
Darrell, who will show off his other-worldly find on his Discovery Channel show Cooper’s Treasure, told MailOnline: «It was also something that was completely different from anything that I’ve seen that was made by nature.»
The mystery objects were found lying on the seabed near the Bahamas — within the notorious 1.3million km watery grave known as the Bermuda Triangle.
It is the scene of countless strange disappearances of planes and ships — attached to which are curious tales that some discredit as myth but others say point to extra-terrestrial or even paranormal happenings.
Veteran diver Darrell made his mammoth discovery during a hunt for the wreck of English ships related to the 16th century Brit sea captain Sir Francis Drake.
But using maps designed in the 1960s by astronaut Cooper, Darrell detected more than 100 magnetic «anomalies» at an undisclosed location deep in the Caribbean waters.
He claims Cooper gave him the detailed maps after he was diagnosed with Parkinson’s, before his death in 2004 at the age of 77.
In the first season of the show Miklos and his team used them to track down a centuries-old anchor thought to come from one of Christopher Columbus’ ships.
Cooper’s maps also led Miklos to dozens of other significant ship wrecks across the Caribbean worth millions.
Describing his approach to his latest find, Darrell said: «I was trying to identify shipwreck material based on one of the anomaly readings on Gordon’s charts when I noticed something that stuck out, that shocked me.»
