'Creepy Hooded Men' Spotted In Ghost Town On Google Earth

This is the moment a TikToker comes across a 'creepy' discovery of figures wearing white cloaks:

Jason Cline posted the video of himself swiping over to Nevada, USA, before zooming in, and in, and in. Until he reaches a ghost town type of place.

The area he got to is called Rhyolite which is in Nye County and is situated around 120 miles away from the infamous Las Vegas.

According to reports, the town began in the early 1900s and was one of several mining camps filled with gold-seekers, developers and miners who flocked to the Bullfrog Mining District (close to Rhyolite).

In 1908 investors in the Montgomery Shoshone Mine began to worry that it was overvalued. After an independent study was conducted, the company's stock value crashed and the mine closed in 1911.

This meant there was no need for out-of-work miners to stick around and the population dropped to below 1,000. By 1920 it was close to zero.

After that rapid history lesson, we'll go back to the TikTok video showing the figures. Documenting the finding, Jason says: "Ok, guys, I just found something incredibly weird on Google Earth and I want to know what you think."

He went on to tell people how to get to the area in question, saying: "Ok, you're going to get on Google Earth here, you wanna go all the way over to Nevada. You're going to go down to the desert, just like this, zoom in right here.

"Once you get all the way down you're going to find a circular object, kinda looks like a thumb print, but this is where it gets crazy.

"You're going to drop down to street view, click on the dot and zoom in. Now what you're about to see, I cannot explain and I do not understand.

"I'm like, literally, I don't think I'm supposed to see this. You're going to scroll over and see a man in all white on a bicycle looking really creepy."

Jason's voice begins to get higher as he adds: "But that's not the scariest part, watch. When you flip around there's a whole group of them in a circle doing some sort of weird ceremony or something. I don't know you guys."

We don't want to be popping anyone's bubble, but it turns out that the ghoulish group is just a collection of statues created by Belgian artist Albert Szukalski.

Yes, we left that until the very end... and what? You're welcome.
