I couldnt find anything on this vid in search. So excuse me if im re-posting, but i found this video of a weird anomaly on google earth, and was able to find the same object myself. www.metacafe.com... . Here is a link to the google earth flash site. www.flashearth.com... . Would like to know what you guys think.

Thank you for the links.
I enhanced it:
it looks interesting, IMHO...


I have no idea of what it could be: it looks to be solid and reflective, but i could be wrong of course, it's just an opinion....

Seriously, that can really be a weather baloon.

I think that Google Earth does not show that photo anymore, but right now I cannot see if it is still there or not.

Edit: I didn't look carefully enough, so I thought that this was the one that was seen before. It isn't, it's in a different place.

ArMaP, i was going to suppose it, but i now chinese lanterns, kites and weather balloons are considered bad words to avoid at every cost.
They're no longer allowed to be used here

You know what i mean

Is true that are terms abused and misused, but not in this case, imho.

It seems like a bluish weather balloon to me. HOWEVER a normal weather balloon doesn't glow, does it?


P.S. There were lots of them discovered on google earth and there was some website (or a forum) with all of these orbs flagged on a map but I can't seem to find any good info about that on google now.

Just a little.

I think a better question is this. How many weather balloons are the size of a city block?

This is a good question.

IMHO, before, we should find at which altitude is actually the object, in order to determine ist size.
Besides, i noticed that it looks to be illuminated by two different sources of light: but maybe i'm wrong...

It looks like those Mexican Orbs that seem to fly in a fleet. Could there be little people inside of them such as in this 1350 painting called "The Crucifixion"?

I heard about these a while back. People have found these all over Google Earth Images.

From the Google Earth Community boards:

About 3 months ago I had occasion to talk to an employee of the company that processed the negatives that came in from two different jobs in California and Florida. Someone set a temperature control on the scanning equipment too high and condensation formed on the lens during the scan of the aerial photos, producing the circular droplets.

and condensation formed on the lens during the scan of the aerial photos, producing the circular droplets.

That explanation just sounds like flat nonsense to me. Of course I don't know how those hi-tech cameras in the sattelites work, but if you focus a normal camera somewhere far away you won't be able to see anything near the lens.
For those who don't know this already here's an example; a tip of a pen 5 cm away from the lens:
external image
The digital camera was focussed to 'infinity' (which is far away
).

So how can you possibly see some 'condensation' on the lens as clear circular objects? The distance sattelite's camera was focussed to, must have been something like 500km.

Although some of these images are taken by satellite, mainly huge expanses of the rural areas, the lions share of these photos are from atmospheric photography ie. planes. There is a way to find out which photo sets are from orbit and which ones are not but I cant remember where I found it at. It may be a water mark on the image itself that discerns how the photo was made. I'll see if I can find it again. There will be NO condesation on a satellite photo but very well could be on a photo taken from a plane. This could be ice as well.....

Ya I have no idea what it is, but thought it was interesting. I thought it kinda looked smuged or airbrushed because it has soft edges. It doesn't seem to leave a shadow on the houses below. Which would suggest its above ground level.

Read the link again. It doesn't condensation occurred while the satellite was taking the photos, it says it happened during the 'scan' of the photos.

I'm not saying I buy that as the reason the circles are there, just pointing out a possibility.

Ahh, on an earthside scan - but wouldnt that be all digital? I guess its possible but find it hard to believe that most of the aerial photog. companies are still using film cameras for this kind of stuff. Satellite or plane takes digi photo, dumps digi info to google mapping server and voila! Are you thinking they are still using paper photos and film cameras? Why would anyone go to the trouble of adding another costly step to the process, unless I am simply misinterpreting what "scan" is supposed to mean.

I dont know - I think I see what you are saying, but maybe not. If i'm wrong fix me dang head...

It has occured to me that not only is the US government lying about Aliens. But so is NASA, ESA...who ever else and now GOOGLE! It's one giant conspiracy that the entire WORLD is involved in. Just to hide evidence from us here on ATS! lol....

The vibrational characteristics of the photo are compelling. Weather balloon? Certainly possible. My gut tells me not.

Judging by that Google screenshot, I'd say that's definitely not a weather balloon. However it could be a high altitude science balloon; they're huge, and they do glow. Here's an image from a recent news article about a high altitude science balloon mistaken for a UFO.



www.gallupindependent.com...


Stepp said weather balloons are about 5 to 6 feet in diameter, while high-altitude science balloons are about 541 feet in diameter and can carry a payload of about 4,000 pounds. For comparison, a high-altitude science balloon’s payload is as big as a Volkswagen and weighs as much as a Ford Taurus.


Also, you can tell a lot about the physical nature of the object by observing how it's lit by the Sun. All the shadows of the trees below point towards the 1 O'Clock position, and as expected the object is also lit from the same direction.

What's odd though, is that the object is also indirectly lit from the opposite direction (where there should be shadow). This tells me that the skin of the object is actually translucent and is allowing light from the 7 O'Clock position to illuminate the opposite interior wall.

Also notice a large portion of the top of the object is in shadow. This leads me to believe that's it's either convex (sunken) in shape on top like an air-filled bag, OR due to its translucent nature the top portion on the interior wall simply 'missed out' on the light travelling through the object.

The blur could be due to its extremely high altitude. Science balloons are constructed to travel near the edge of the atmosphere, hence it could possibly be closer to the satellite than the Earth's surface.

"UFO" picture still on Google Earth at decimal degrees Lat 34.1402, long -117.394 or 1187 W. Norwood, Rialto, CA 92377. Photo taken late afternoon based upon building shadows. 150 ft in diameter. Ground elevation 1,488 ft msl. Area is basic desert conditions-usually low moisture so very few clouds, BUT small puffs can still form late summer days. I've seen these elsewhere on Google and in person. I work 20 miles from site and am engineer and aircraft pilot. Probably clould, possible new fire/smoke, near perfect round shape makes it unusual, possible cloud causing optical photo effects.

If these orbs are UFO's, why do they always appear the exactly the same? Surely the chances of catching the exact same looking UFO's would be extremely rare.

I deal with weather balloons on a daily basis and although there are similarities I dont believe that it is one. Weather balloons do not keep a perfect spherical shape like on the image but instead usually appear like a flattened oval or something similar. Evasius' photo is a perfect example of this
