Flying Car Baffles Aussies and Googlers

2.11.2006





Reading over at Piaras Kelly about attempts to manipulate Google Maps to some nefarious end, I recalled this story from a while back.

SMH reported that googleearth images from Perth seem to show a car hovering above the ground with its own shadow underneath it. The image is on the right here.

Now before you go all mad and spooky:


"The intriguing image was reported last week by the British IT news website, The Register

One the the website's readers subsequently visited the very spot and sent in photos showing that there were no unusual structures there that could explain the phenomenon.

Other sceptical readers wrote in insisting the image was an optical illusion and was either a bus shelter, a pergola, a hole in the ground. One said it was obviously "Harry Potter and his friends on vacation."

Still, there is no need to let facts get in the way of a good story. The car was gone by the time the reader got there since his orbital window had closed and he was due to return to Omega 5 to file his report into human behaviour. This report is part of the build up to the invasion of earth, and were it not for google earth we would never have seen it coming.
