It has spent decades travelling to galaxies far, far away, but the Millennium Falcon has been spotted somewhere a little more down to earth - next to the M3 in Surrey, England.

An aerial image from Google Maps shows the Star Wars ship parked near a golf course across the highway from Longcross Studios, about 25 miles west of London.

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

It is sat facing the elements on the edge of the site of Longcross Studios in Chertsey, near a golf course.

The find comes with just over a month until the latest instalment of Star Wars.

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.

It's likely it won't stay for long, but Star Wars fans are having fun on Twitter while it lasts.

The Last Jedi, directed by Rian Johnson, picks up exactly where JJ Abrams' The Force Awakens Left off: with Rey handing Luke the lightsaber he lost battling his father above Bespin in The Empire Strikes Back.
