Google Maps UFO?
The link, which I'll share, to this google map anomaly was sent to me by J. Anderson. I guess it can be classified as a UFO as I don't know for sure what it is or isn't.
Its is funny that sometimes Google Maps captures odd things and this one is pretty good. If I was going to try and explain this I would think that this is either a bird in flight or maybe even some type of insect.
I used Google Maps and went back before the object was there to see if I could see a bird in a tree or if the object was captured in another frame, but I found neither. That does not mean it was not there I could have easily missed it.
Just for fun and as an attempt to identify the object, I zoomed in on it and tried some filters.
Here are those pictures and a link to the Google Map image.
So I zoomed in and ran the close up through a couple of filters. The shape of the object is very UFOish. It also makes me wonder it this is glare or lens flare on the camera lens.
It could also still be a bug or a bird, just very hard to say for sure.
In the end, I can not identify just what this object is but I also could not find it in any other frames on google maps. Could it be a UFO? Yeah I guess it could but I would assume there is a more earthly explanation.
Here is the link to the image, go check it out, play around with it and see if you can find another frame in which the object appears. Let us know what you find.
A thanks to J. Anderson for sending this in to us and nice to know we have people out there looking for odd and unusual things.
