Conspiracy theorists have been left gobsmacked after news surfaced of a fitness tracker app that can reportedly reveal the location of military bases around the world.
The Global Heat Map, published by GPS tracking company Strava, unveiled mysterious activity from as far away as Somalia and Yemen.
Now, it is claimed there is also activity shown in the icy reaches of Antarctica, with claims it exposes an underground government base in the South Pole, Dailystar.co.uk reports.
Tyler Glockner, of YouTube channel SecureTeam10, uploaded footage using the software, appearing to show heat signatures from an isolated location in Antarctica.
He said: “We have a new area of Antarctica that was discovered where – in the middle of nowhere – we had one of these heat maps.
“We can obviously see the outline of what looks like a multi-level building, which obviously people who are wearing tracking devices – likely Government employees – have been walking around every single day.”
That leads me to believe is that whatever we are seeing in this heat map, it is definitely underground. You can see some of the lines here are overlapping which signifies to me there are definite multiple levels. – Scott Brando
When the clip switches to Google Earth of the same area, however, nothing can be seen apart from mountains and snow.
There is a man-made runway and camp some seven miles away from the “building”, but nothing in its exact coordinates.
Mr Glockner said: “That leads me to believe is that whatever we are seeing in this heat map, it is definitely underground.
“You can see some of the lines here are overlapping which signifies to me there are definite multiple levels.
“While there are many publicly known camps or bases or stations scattered around Antarctica, I firmly believe there is more of a mystery there, there are things underground which we are not being told about.”
There are several popular conspiracy theories about there being secret US Military bases hidden in Antarctica where ‘recovered UFOs’ are allegedly secretly stored and experimented on.
One even suggests that after World War 2 the Nazis escaped to Antarctica and set up bases where they tried to develop UFO technology and these have since been taken over by the US.
More than 100,000 people have watched the video.
One viewer posted on YouTube: “Awesome video, I would love to know what they are hiding down there.”
Another added: “The more we look, the more evidence we find of highly advanced civilisations that were here way before us.”
Others were sceptical.
One pointed out: “If it was underground there would be no GPS signal and therefore no location tracking.”
Scott Brando runs debunking website Ufoofinterest.org.
He said: “As reported by many media, GPS points can show sensitive information about the location and staffing of military bases, military personnel on active service and spy outposts.
“We know Strava released their global heat map showing 13 trillion GPS points from their users.
“But we don’t know how many human activities or military bases can be identified without falling into a conspiracy.”
