Have you tried any other sky maps, or tried pulling up the area with NASA or JAXA images?

It was so much easier to blame it on Them. It was bleakly depressing to think that They were Us. If it was Them, then nothing was anyone's fault. If it was us, what did that make Me? After all, I'm one of Us. I must be. I've certainly never thought of myself as one of Them. No one ever thinks of themselves as one of Them. We're always one of Us. It's Them that do the bad things.

It does my head in the way people try and jump to wild conclusions based on absolutely no facts.

Google Earth & Sky are programs where digital images are stiched together. There are always - always - going to be anomalies and patches missing. What answer do you want that you wouldn't find suspicious???
if it does your head in,save your intelligence for another post  :tu:

k update received word from there tech support hmmm...

Hi James,
Derek just responded to your question about *Google Earth*:
pic


The photo is of a third party satellite. I found this too, except before it was blocked.

me smells bullllll*h**   :angry2:

Why are you guys still debating what the blob is? Google Tech support wrote him back with the answer. Not a reflection, not an anomaly, not filtered for imaging. It's a 3rd party satellite (3rd party meaning, not Google's property). Something, for whatever legal reason, Google can't show.

*edit* - Oops, read the post better. That was a random person replying to his post, not Google officially. Nevertheless, sounds the likely situation.

"I think there may be "ghost phenomenon" that may be still not fully understood or dismissed, but that doesn't make it spirits of the dead, anymore than "UFO" means "spaceship" or even "UFO" or "spaceship" is directly related to aliens, or anything else. There is way too much assumption and a baseless reliance on anecdotal lore, like when people assert this or that about the spirit world or the astral plane or Ouija board demons, or religion. I say 'says WHO?'" - Paranormalcy

Weird stuff sometimes gets caught on Google Maps, most of it is lens distortion in the satellites or other mundanities, that doesn't make it any less fun to look at though, at least not for me.

Besides, what's cooler than a big brain in the middle of the ocean?

nothing to see here, folks.
