An eagle-eyed "Star Wars" fan stumbled upon the Millennium Falcon while performing a Google Earth search and the internet can't get enough of it. But its strategy has been breached by Google Maps.

You can run but you can't hide from Google, as Disney has discovered after its Millennium Falcon model for Star Wars: The Last Jedi was found in Google Maps.

On Google Maps, you can look at the street view of addresses all across the world via satellite images.

Worst cover up ever.

Oddly, the Millennium Falcon seems to be set a good couple of hundred metres away from the studios and is sandwiched between a golf course and a racing track providing petrolheads with the opportunity to take expensive supercars for a high-speed spin. You'll start by searching for Longcross Studios, the film-production facility where "Last Jedi" is filming. Many huge films have been shot there including Thor: The Dark World, Skyfall, and Guardians of the Galaxy.

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

Disney filmed the new Last Jedi movie at Longcross Studios in the United Kingdom where the Millennium Falcon is shown on Google Maps, they obviously thought shipping containers would be a good way of hiding it.
