'Star Wars' fans spot hidden Millennium Falcon on Google Earth

'Star Wars' fans spot hidden Millennium Falcon on Google Earth”

But while it's previously managed the Kessel Run in under twelve parsecs, Han Solo's iconic starship is now parked up in a field in Surrey.

The Millennium Falcon from Star Wars seen near a golf course in Surrey, England.

But eagle-eyed fans spotted the Falcon on Google Earth because the iconic front of the ship can clearly be seen poking out from under the sheets.

In the last Star Wars instalment, it was left in Rey's control, with her and Chewbacca flying it to an unknown planet on their search for Luke Skywalker.

And it's a bit of a sorry sight.

After travelling to galaxies far, far away for decades, the Falcon is now parked metres from Barrow Hills Golf Club.

Bosses have tried to hide the prop by covering it in plastic ships and surrounding it in shipping containers.

The Millennium Falcon is even labelled by Google.

And those tarps haven't kept Google's satellites out.

The UK has been a fixture of filming in the Star Wars saga with some part of every movie shot on these shores.

That is the second glimpse fans have been privy to within a week, with a new trailer for the upcoming film released on Thursday.

For now, we'll have to wait and see.

The Last Jedi is due out this Christmas.

Rian Johnson both wrote and directed the movie. "Star Wars: The Last Jedi" hits theaters on December 15.
