The US Air Force is understood to be developing a spy plane that travels at more than 4,600mph (7,400km/h).
The satellite image appears to show an object similar to the artist’s impression of the secretive hypersonic plane being developed by defence firm Lockheed Martin.
It comes a day after Lockheed Martin’s secretive Skunk Works unit said it had already finished making the radical hypersonic update of the long-retired Mach 3 SR-71 Blackbird spy plane.
The Google satellite images were compiled in a video by Tyler Glockner, known for uploading images of UFO sightings to his YouTube channel Secureteam10.
Whoever created the craft has a ‘main foothold in designing aircraft engines that are widely used in civilian and military aviation’, Mr Glockner claimed.
