Considering the secrecy surrounding the construction of a full-scale Millennium Falcon for what would become Star Wars: The Force Awakens, one might think the iconic vessel would've been disassembled and stored in a secure facility following production of The Last Jedi.

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.

The Millennium Falcon may have made the Kessel Run in less than 12 parsecs, but apparently its stealth mode leaves something to be desired.

Most people playing the Barrow Hills Golf Club in Surrey, England, probably didn't realize they were a stones throw away from a huge, iconic Star Wars prop.

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

Parts of "Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi" were filmed at Longcross Studios, according to the London Evening Standard.

However, a birds-eye-view reveals the unmistakable shape of Han Solo's ship, now in the hands of Rey & Chewbacca following the events of Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

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