Eagle-eyed fans have spotted the Millennium Falcon from Star Wars: The Last Jedi sitting out in the open on Google Maps. At least it was the last time Google's satellite cameras snapped photos of the location.

The Millennium Falcon was recently on Google Earth parked near a golf course in Surrey, in the South of England, the Daily Mail reports.

The Millennium Falcon is the fastest ship in the galaxy, 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. Some things, however, are a little too big to hide, and a certain hunk of junk found itself thrust into the spotlight this week when Google Earth gave it away.

Twitter doesn't even know what "verification" means anymore

A self-driving shuttle launched in Las Vegas - it didn't go well
A driverless shuttle bus was in a auto accident the first day the electric vehicle was being tested in Las Vegas. It isn't the first time the driverless shuttle has hit Las Vegas's streets.

The Falcon is hidden from ground-level spies by multicolored shipping containers, but its distinctive shape is evident from above.

Anyway, the film, directed by Rian Johnson, will be out on 15 December, so you'll be able to see it in full view, without any corrugated metal surrounding it - how exciting for you and your dog.

It's likely it won't stay for long, but Star Wars fans are having fun on Twitter while it lasts. Hamill is set to return as the iconic Luke Skywalker character, John Boyega as Finn, the late Carrie Fisher as General Leia Organa, Adam Driver as Kylo Ren and Ridley as Rey.
