Despite the like of NASA confirming that Mercury, the closest planet to the Sun, would likely be lifeless, conspiracy theorists have been searching there for aliens nonetheless. By analysing images of the planet, which has a toxic atmosphere and surface temperatures of more than 430 degrees Celsius, one UFO hunter believes he has found evidence of an ET base.
The ‘proof’ comes in the form of an apparent structure on Mercury, which has led to claims it is home to aliens.
The supposed base is around five kilometres across with a giant door which stretches 1.5 kilometres wide.
Prominent alien hunter Scott C Waring made the astounding claims after searching through telescopic images of Mercury.
Furthermore, Mr Waring addresses claims that aliens could not live on the surface, by stating the gigantic door leads to an underground base, which would be a safe home for extraterrestrials according to Mr Waring’s logic.
He wrote on his blog UFO Sightings Daily: “This is an interesting structure on Mercury. The building is about five km across according to the rule of the map.
“Also it has a huge rectangle doorway. The door is probably for ships to enter and exit.
“Life could not exist on the surface exposed to space unless there were buildings on the surface, however life could exist under the ground in cities built to house tens of thousands.
“That door is 1.5km across by 2.5km tall.”
Mr Waring has made several claims about aliens living on Mercury.
Just last week, he said he had discovered a supposed gate which is “100 percent proof” of life on Mercury.
However, in both instances it would appear the structures Mr Waring has discovered are simply meteorite craters, with the sightings likely put down to an effect known as pareidolia.
Pareidolia is essentially where the brain tricks itself into seeing familiar patterns.

NASA said: “Pareidolia is the psychological phenomenon where people see recognisable shapes in clouds, rock formations, or otherwise unrelated objects or data.
“There are many examples of this phenomenon on Earth and in space.”
The space agency also believes life on Mercury would be virtually impossible due to the searing temperatures.
The space agency said: “No evidence for life has been found on Mercury. Daytime Temperatures can reach 430 degrees Celsius (800 degrees Fahrenheit) and drop to -180 degrees Celsius (-290 degrees Fahrenheit) at night.
“It is unlikely life (as we know it) could survive on this planet.”
