One of your high schools looks like the Millenium Falcon
. US high school’s Millennium Falcon likeness sparks Twitter storm
An eagle-eyed sci-fi fan spotted the design likeness between Parkland High School in Allentown, Pennsylvania, and the spaceship made famous in George Lucas' epic series after checking out a snap of the building on Google Maps.
The segmented circular outline and the hamburger-inspired iconic design of the craft can be easily made out in this amazing screenshot.
A picture of the school next to the spaceship was posted on popular entertainment website The Soup which claims the design is more than just a coincidence.
School officials have denied knowing anything about the building's striking architecture, but the statement has not convinced The Soup which joked:
'Their piddling attempts at Jedi mind tricks will not work on us. We know a YT-1300 light freighter when we see one.'
The picture was trending worldwide on Twitter on Monday morning, being retweeted and commented on by thousands of users.
One local resident described the vast enormity of the school saying: 'When it opened, we called it the Taj Mahal'
Micro-blogger Brian Wheeler said: 'There's no possible way this was an accident...'
While another added: 'School looks like Millennium Falcon from space? "Mere coincidence" or best stealth architectural tribute of all time?'
Coincidence or not, this ambitious design looks set to take off in a big way.
With or without the Falcon
