Google Maps helps many people do various things, but tracking UFOs might be a new one.

Andrea Dove contacted ABC News affiliate KLTV in East Texas with an interesting tip. Dove was using Google Maps to get directions to visit her aunt in Jacksonville, Texas, when she spotted a UFO while using the Street View option.

Don’t believe it? Try it yourself by simply searching Jacksonville, Texas, and panning upward toward the sky in Street View to spot the reddish UFO near the clouds — although no one in Jacksonville has ever reported seeing one.

If you’re still looking for more evidence, try the same trick by searching for the Sky City Casino Hotel on 32 Indian Service Route 30, Acoma Pueblo, N.M. The same object appears in the sky hovering over the street.

What do these two sites have in common? A McDonald’s.

Is it really the same UFO or simply a lens flare? :shiftyninja:

I love the fact that most UFO's depicted (generally of outworldly origin) tend to look crap, none are generally shown as terrifyingly awesome Borg Spheres/Cube or ships that resemble something along the line of ST:Voyager. No, all UFO's look like they've been cooked up by the mind of the 1950's child. I mean seriously, if an advanced race can traverse vast distances I'm sure they wouldn't design something so goddamn aweful, unless they're here to steal Apple designers ;)

Yeah, looks like lens flare to me too. The giveaway, to me, is below the 'object' on the right side. See that line of white? Looks like lens flare.

The human brain likes to see patterns based on things it knows. It's also highly susceptible. Most will immediately think of an UFO (thinking of ≠ actually believing it is) because that's what the title suggests. It could also easily be a hat.

This is what happens when you get of your ass instead of saying "i dont know therefore aliens".

Predictable responses from the "truth" community

Now now, we already could tell right off the bat the UFO was indeed a lens flare.

But maybe that's what the aliens want us to think. :shifty:

^ It looks like the saucer is in mostly invisible mode -- but the camera can pick up partial light radiation from it -- in the infared range.

It could be both. ;) Lens flare over the UFO.
