Millenium Falcon spotted on golf course

Share

Star Wars' iconic space ship, the Millennium Falcon, sits hidden from view by a ring of shipping containers and only 300 meters from the Barrow Hills Golf Course.

Hans Solo's wheels had been used in the filming of the Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi, and appear to have been stored off site right by the golf course.

The shipping containers do well to keep out prying eyes on the ground, but apparently the studio bosses didn't take satellite images into account when they were hiding the hunk of junk that famously made the Kessel Run in less than 12 parsecs.

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

The spaceship is close to Longcross Studios in the southern county.

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.

However, thanks to the birds-eye-view of Google Earth, it's clear that it's the shape of Han Solo's ship now in the hands of Chewbacca and Rey following the events of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. It is, however, still visible in an undated Google Maps photo.

The latest movie, Star Wars: The Last Jedi, is due out in cinemas on December 15.
