UFO hunters are convinced they have found evidence of life on Venus, citing photographs of what they believe are alien-built structures.
Although life as we know it does not appear to exist anywhere beyond Earth, conspiracy theorists are convinced we are not alone in the Universe. And in a new discovery shared online, a prominent UFO hunter has exposed what he believes are artificial structures on the planet Venus. The supposed structures measure up to five miles across and even have human-like features on them.
According to self-appointed UFO expert Scott C Waring of UFO Sightings Daily, the images could well be the real deal.
Mr Waring explored his findings in a blog post titled Huge Structures On Venus, 100% Proof Of Life.
He said: “I was looking at a new planetary map and found these structures on Venus. The structure above is over five miles across.
“Many human-like alien contact cases constantly reveal Venus as their homeworld.

“A world shared by many species in underground cities.
“Here we see even the surface of Venus has structures.”
Mr Waring is a popular purveyor of UFO-related conspiracy theories and hoaxes.
He frequently trawls through archival footage and NASA photographs to expose what he believes is evidence of alien life.
In the past, he has shared images of what he thought was an alien “gun” on Mars.
Mr Waring also reached out to SpaceX billionaire Elon Musk, urging him to recover what he thought was a crashed UFO on the Moon.
He now said of his Venus discovery: “One structure even has a human-like face on it.
“A chubby little guy with curly hair and a cigar in his mouth.
“How can I be sure these are structures you may ask?

“I have been doing this since 1976 when I was first to discover the face at Cydonia, Mars. Experience over decades builds.”
But it is incredibly unlikely life exists on Venus due to the planet’s hellish conditions.
Venus’ atmosphere is about 90 times thicker than Earth’s and mostly made up of carbon dioxide.
There is also almost no water vapour in the air as surface temperatures can reach a nightmarish 462C (864F).
The planet’s thick atmosphere creates a strong greenhouse effect, making Venus the hottest planet in our solar system.
Some scientists do, however, believe Venus may have once been habitable with liquid oceans.
Michael Way, a researcher at NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies in New York, said: “Many of the same tools we use to model climate change on Earth can be adapted to study climates on other planets, both past and present.
“These results show ancient Venus may have been a very different place than it is today.”
