The Millennium Falcon found on Google Maps

Lucasfilm guards its secrets well, but one has slipped out, thanks to Google Maps! The satellite imagery on the online service recently revealed the Millennium Falcon hidden at a studio outside London!

It all started with this tweet from Jedi News UK:

That led to an online scavenger hunt of sorts, with fans coming across the image you see above.

Last year, reported that filming for The Last Jedi at Longcross included the Falcon, so this is obviously the same ship, hidden for safe keeping.

Go hunting!
