Star Wars Millennium Falcon is Hidden Near A Golf Course in England

In a galaxy not very far away: Millennium Falcon is spotted on Google Earth parked next to a golf course in Surrey

Millennium Falcon Ice Molds

Most people playing the Barrow Hills Golf Club in Surrey, England, probably didn't realize they were a stones throw away from a very big, iconic Star Wars prop. But film bosses moved it off site and hid it with plastic sheets and freight containers.

What, we ask you, could be more gloriously geeky than scouring Google Earth for a shot of the Millennium Falcon?

This particular model for the Falcon, most likely used in filming for Star Wars: The Last Jedi, is actually sitting on the grounds at Longcross Film Studios at Surrey, just a few miles south and west from the nearest docking station - London's Heathrow Airport.

Longcross Studios sits along the M3 Highway in Surrey, England, and so does the iconic Millenium Falcon. The layout of the ship, first shown in "Star wars" in 1977, left the crew a new episode of the franchise, the show which will be held in December.

When fans last saw the Falcon, Chewbacca and Rey, the heroine from "Episode VII: The Force Awakens", were landing on a mysterious planet searching for the long-missing Luke Skywalker.

This discovery comes as Star Wars fans await the release of the next instalment of The Last Jedi, which comes out next month.

Quite often on Google maps you can see something unexpected.

"The Last Jedi" hits U.S. theaters on December 15.
