A TREASURE hunter has made an “astonishing” discovery in the depths of the Bermuda Triangle that he believes is evidence of an alien 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 object is covered in 15 vast 300ft 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 lay 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.
Describing his approach to the puzzling structure, 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.”

He said the object has the appearance of a “battleship” with a steep wall from which five protruding arms stick out like cannons.
Using special breathing apparatus to reach the 300ft-deep “spaceship”, Darrell said that he and his fellow divers noticed that it did not appear to be man-made.
And the fact it was covered in thick coral suggesting that the object — if it landed there from beyond our planet — did so hundreds if not thousands of years ago.
Darrell added: “Certainly nothing I’ve ever seen based on my experience and I have years of experience at doing this, we’ve identified multiple different types of shipwreck material, this doesn’t match or look anything like that.”

Looking back at the Cooper charts, Darrell came across a puzzling note left be the former spaceman at the site of the structure — “unidentified object”.
Now, Californian Darrell wants to investigate the mysterious site further — despite the risk he faces of being dubbed an alien conspiracy theorist.
He wants to remain “neutral” until he can dig up more evidence on what the structure could be and is hoping to have a third series of his Discovery show commissioned to help tell the story.
Hopeful Darrell added: “I want to see what it is, because it may be nature made, just a freak of nature, but given its placement in this particular part of the Caribbean and given what Gordon has told me about visitors from another planet and the things that I’ve seen, I think it’s definitely worthwhile investigating”.
The next episode of Cooper’s Treasure airs in the UK next Tuesday, 14 August on the Discovery Channel at 10pm
