Google Maps Street View: Very bizarre sight­ing spot­ted – what is it?

Iran Daily - - Entertainment -

Google Maps Street View cap­tures all sort of mun­dane sights as it maps the streets of the world, but some­times it pho­to­graphs strange scenes that sim­ply can­not be ex­plained, as this mys­te­ri­ous photo shows.

Google Maps Street View has cap­tured an alarm­ing-look­ing scene play­ing out in the coun­try­side. The mys­te­ri­ous sight comes with no ex­pla­na­tion, mak­ing it even more fore­bod­ing, Ex­press.co.uk re­ported.

The bizarre im­age shows what looks to be two fig­ures hov­er­ing in the sky. One is long and thin while the other is wider and pink in color, which con­trasts with the white of the clouds.

Some view­ers have spec­u­lated whether the fig­ure on the left could be a man in a cloak and on the right is a woman in a big pink dress or cloak.

They have won­dered whether the sight is, in fact, an ap­pari­tion of re­li­gious fig­ures.

The rest of the shot seems en­tirely nor­mal. There is a win­try for­est on the left and moun­tains in the dis­tance.

The re­mote set­ting and the strange sight of the ‘fig­ures’ in the sky lends an un­earthly tinge to the scene.

How­ever, there is more than likely a ra­tio­nal ex­pla­na­tion for the mys­te­ri­ous photo. Prob­a­bly the weird sight is the re­sult of a tech­no­log­i­cal glitch caused by the Google cam­era.

When tak­ing the photo, the 360-de­gree cam­eras shoot mul­ti­ple pic­tures to cre­ate the seam­less im­age.

This is done by knit­ting the im­ages to­gether to make it seem re­al­is­tic.

How­ever, mov­ing ob­jects of­ten ruin the scene as they shift when the pho­tos are taken. For in­stance, some­thing in­side the car or just out­side which was caught in the shot by ac­ci­dent.

This is far from the first time a cam­era glitch has re­sulted in a strange ap­pari­tion.

Google Maps Street View also pho­tographed an alarm­ing spec­ta­cle tak­ing place in San Fran­cisco, USA.

The dis­turb­ing shot makes it looks as though an enor­mous ob­ject is about to crash down on top of the city.

The huge block is so big it could crush the build­ings and cars be­low – and the shot sug­gests this is im­mi­nently go­ing to oc­cur.

How­ever, the like­li­hood of an ob­ject like this plum­met­ing out of the sky is in­cred­i­bly un­likely and it is most likely the re­sult of a Google glitch.
