Man looks at the plane in the sea Scotland The craziest Google Earth illusions
As for driving on maps and routes, you can rely on Google Earth, Google Streetview and Google Maps! But sometimes the cameras of the Internet giant also capture things that only apparently show what the observer believes to recognize …
In Scotland, the British Robert Morton (55) discovered the silhouette of a pilot allegedly shot down at sea. An unexplored wreck? An accident?
No, no plane off the coast of Scotland has sunk into the sea. What Morton saw is a satellite image from the space where the plane happened to "crash" the photo.
From the mysterious bird's eye view of the alleged shipwrecks to the cars that drive the houses, here are the funniest and most bizarre images that Google Earth has captured …
The car drives the walls
Departure: in the Dutch city of Aia, cars also go back to the walls. A shot against gravity? Unfortunately no, registration is a spectacular installation.
Missile test in the United States?
Do we see a missile test flight that we should not see? Of course not: again, we come across a photographic error that deceives us wrong facts.
The seemingly mysterious object that the satellite has photographed on a Utah forest (USA) is a normal plane. The overlapping of the photos could be responsible for the fact that the wings of the aircraft are not visible.
Airbus has landed in the Main
▶ ︎ If you are looking for the Schiersteiner Kreuz on Google Maps, you may have a little shock! The satellite image on the B 519 bridge shows an "obscure" British Airways machine. An Airbus A320 that seems to be under water!
All just an optical illusion!
The explanation is simple: every satellite image on Google Maps is rebuilt from many individual images. If an airplane crosses the serial shots, it can remain a shadow – just like in Flörsheim, the Airbus, which will land optically in the Main …
Visage of Jesus in Hungary
Is this gigantic image of Google a high sign? Not exactly. The image of Jesus made during a satellite flight on Hungary is not surprising.
The illusion was created by the shadows that threw clouds on the ground.
"Walkman" in Canada
▶ ︎ Was a deity carved in the ground here? It seems so. If you look up the landscape in Alberta (Canada), it seems that the face of an Indian chief stands out. Or pose a man who has headphones in his ears.
The face, however, is a submerged clay valley, which has been named "Badlands Guardian".
This recording of Google should provide gold hunters the heart of racing: in a record that was removed from the west coast of Africa, the legendary Atlantis seems to have finally been discovered! Rectangular formations, recognizable on the bottom of the sea …
Too happy soon: unfortunately this seems to be true. An explanation can be found on the official Google Maps blog: These are just sonar traces left by the ships. Measure how long the emitted sound must return to the ship when it is reflected from the ground. This is the way depth is determined. These measurements are recorded as tracks and can also be viewed on satellite images used by Google.
