Skeptic News: Google Maps UFO


Friday morning, Good Morning Americashowed a photo of an unidentified flying object (UFO) that has appeared in two places on Google maps; the news has created an Internet buzz Friday morning.

Google Maps is known for helping people get from one place to another, but tracking UFOs?

Andrea Dove was looking for directions to her aunt’s house in Jacksonville, Texas when she noticed a strange thing in the Street View option on Google Maps. She contacted KLTV in East Texas with the news and Good Morning America reported on the story early Friday.

Anyone can see the UFO in Street View in Google Maps by searching Jacksonville, Texas and pan up to the sky; a red colored UFO appears near the clouds. KLTV reported that no one has ever reported seeing the UFO. But the same UFO shaped object appears in Google Maps over the Sky City Casino Hotel in New Mexico; the address is 32 Indian Service Route 30, Acoma Pueblo, New Mexico.

Looking at the photo what explanations can people think of for this strange image? An insect flying close to the camera? Some odd light effect? What is the Google Maps UFO?
