While scientists are continually engaged in unravelling the mysteries of the universe and the secrets it still harbours, UFO hunters periodically come up with claims of alien life. A blur that stands out in a Nasa picture, an unexplained streak of light in the night sky, can all get their antennae up and are held up as 'proof' that there's life out there.

Now, a new report claims that some Russian UFO hunters have unearthed debris from a UFO believed to be millions of years old. Inquisitr reports that Vadim Chernobrov, head of Kosmopoisk (a Russian UFOlogy and Crytozoology group) and his team have unearthed a disc-shaped stone during an excavation in the Medveditskaya ridge region of the Zhirnovsky district, Volgograd.

The shape of the four-meter stone disc, which resembles the popular image of a flying saucer, has let the imagination of the conspiracy theorists fly. The news was first reported by a Russian news website Bloknot-Volgograd. Chernobrov told the website that they discovered it last week and that it differs from the dozens of such ancient stones they have collected in and around that area.

"We managed to find a dozen of these stone disks, but this is such a unique one" Chernobrov told the local news website. Other stones we found is not more more than 1 diameter in diameter. Previously, we have been able to find such alien stones, but the biggest of them found was in the Kuzbass which was of 2 meter in diameters," he added.

Scott Waring of UFO Sightings Daily thinks this is proof that aliens exist and claims the disc is made of tungsten. Tungsten is also known as wolfram, and is used in special military technology.

"It looks to me like the stone disks I've seen in Mars NASA photos, which leads me to conclude that this UFO is a military drone, but it was probably damaged during the Mars attack and got off course, crashing on Earth," Waring wrote on his website. Earlier in February, a disk-shaped stone object was discovered by a coal mining company in Siberia's Kuznetsk Basin, during excavation work.
