I found these pictures on google maps when browsing through this area. It looks like some sort of beam of light out of an open second story window. The beam goes through the sun and then into the trees and abruptly disappears. Does anyone have any explanations on what this could be? I think it is very odd and cannot come up with any reasonable explanation.

Since the sun is very much present in the picture... I think it's glare.

Well the picture is pretty accurate. Clearly a beam passing through the sun and stopping just short of going in the window.

I sorry to say, the beam is only from sun glare. This is because the Google Street view camera was in a dome. As illustrated in the images below, the glare repeats on the left side of the camera and the sun is directly in the center.



Also another indication is that my image is in the exact identical spot as yours, yet the beam is off the target i.e the window. Mine is more to the wall.

ok I see it now. The only glares I have seen are usually straight, but this must be curved because of the google maps cameras.

How old are you?

I'm only asking so I can understand your level of comprehension in the field of cameras and lens flares.


Wow, there's someone to look up to...


"Uncool".

Apparently Google's cars are equipped with nine individual cameras - the images from these cameras are then stitched together to form a completely panoramic image.

If you look carefully at the image, you will be able to see where two images meet. Barrel distortion has caused the images to misalign - notice the lines on the building do not match perfectly.



The reason why the beam of sunlight suddenly stops is because it was not present in the other camera's field of view. In other words, the beam of sunlight is interrupted by the blending of another seperate image.

Also the line is curved, following the curve of the plastic lens cover over the camera, try to picture the red or amber lens of a rotating becon light on an emergency or police vehicle.

Nice find mate but I'm pretty sure that is glare seeing as the sun is very present in that picture. There is always the off chance that it is a top secret military weapon, but in this case, I very much doubt it.

I too very much doubt it, particularly since the house is in the middle of suburbia in Hermosa Beach

So you can visualise how the cameras each have a different field of vision and would not be affected by a lens glare which is affecting the one next to it I shall provide you with a picture of the business end of the google streetview system




And just to correct a previous post - its 8 not 9 cameras.

It could be something stuck to the camera mast, it's visible even under a bridge, as you can see here.
