How do two identical UFO images end up on photos shot 1,000 miles apart?
October 18, 2012
(MONROE, WA) -- Is it a freak of nature? A mirage? A strange reflection off something that was on the street, a building perhaps? Camera lens flare? Or did someone tamper with Google’s photos just for fits and giggles?

Or was it a space ship from another galaxy?
There’s a seemingly endless list of suspects in the caper that a local Monroe reader turned us on to the other day, but still no answer at the moment as to why two - what appear to be identical UFO type images - end up on Google Maps photos when those photos were snapped almost 1,000 miles apart in different locations.
The story: two red/orange UFO like shapes – looking for all the world like classic saucer shaped UFO’s from a Hollywood B-movie, which might raise some red flags straight away – end up on Google Maps photos (street views) of Jacksonville in Texas and at the Sky City Casino Hotel in Acoma Pueblo in New Mexico.
At both locations the same object –or what appears to be an identical object – shows up in the sky hovering over the street.
The story was first picked up by the ABC TV network news affiliate KLTV in East Texas by Andrea Dover, a viewer of the station who noticed the first UFO while using Google Maps to get directions.
Below is the story the station ran on it.

The object that is seen in the Texas Google Map image was shot very near the Landmark building at the 69 and 79 intersection, also near Sadler's Restaurant and right across the street from a Taco Bell restaurant.
