Was Google looking for a new sort of advertising for their new product?
I have to say I find it quite clever to (ab)use ''paranormal phenomena'' to get media attention.

The Google cameras have also captured a spooky ET alien figure in New Jersey, United States.

I don't know about anyone else but I'd rather see this spooky alien figure than some person in a "victorian" outfit.  Does anyone have a link?? happy.gif

how funny is this quote from the article:

"Local medium Jane Cohen, 39, said: "Apparitions have often been caught on film but are invisible to the naked eye."

made me chuckle..

  • I have no idea where this will lead us. But I have a definite feeling it will be a place both wonderful and strange.

"But what is really strange is that she doesn't appear as a full figure - you can't see all of her."

strange ? almost the whole bottom is askew. it's not strange !! Victorian clothes ?? in England ? OMG what next ? people dressed as town criers ?? lol   could this be an actor going to work ?? guess that would be too simple.

sorry ,.. should have read through............ solved.

Complete HOAX! Look at the picture with a photo editing program and it is immediately clear the girl/lady has been inserted from a picture taken in almost exactly the same spot and then inserted into the original Google View photo. Should be obvious even without that examination because of the out-of-focus, distorted posts around the area of the "ghost". What some newspapers won't do for a little extra publicity!!!

saw some pictures of the inaguration that were distorted like that too.  You know the type,  legs walking with no upper body and a child being held by a woman with no face.  I think  the rendering just came out poorly.

She looks like a lively individual in the photograph; I don't see what the commotion is all about. Perhaps she likes being "different." Meh, what do I know...

This is very clearly a normal woman in Cardiff (Cardiff is in Wales not England, Geography fans) whose face has been blurred as per google map rules.
I think the blurry bit below is the photos stuck together or something, you'll see something similar on most google map pics you look down far enough on..
It is neither a ghost nor even an attempt to fake a ghost.
The Telegraph is normally a fairly respected broadsheet. Must be a slow news day.

Not that this picture warrants being looked into this much, but the Mary Poppins play is in Cardiff at the moment.

It's playing in that big building you can see behind the woman.

There's no shortage of newspapers or TV shows in Britain that would love to take the p*ss out of the Telegraph for this.

I didn't see a ghost as well.  Looked fairly normal to me.

Nice detective work.  Google was behind all of the paranoia.

In the beginning there were only probabilities. The universe could only come into existence if someone observed it. It does not matter that the observers turned up several billion years later. The universe exists because we are aware of it.

Heh. That "ghost" is casting a shadow!  ohmy.gif

I'm more interested at the Google cameras also capturing a spooky ET alien figure in New Jersey, United States mention at the end of the article. Anyone has a link to this story? Possibly with a photo?
