Image of Greenland (like most all Google Earth images) is constructed of a mosaic of images taken from satellites. These images are taken in overlapping bands as these satellites orbit the Earth. Lighting conditions vary with each exposure causing edges of individual images to mis-match. Resulting mis-matched image borders create faint diagonal, horizontal and vertical lines

When you zoom out you can see the outlines of the pictures that are used to combine it as a whole.
It looks to good. It also looks like it's really burried in the snow.
The black bar beneath it. Well... That looks like a glitch. The sheer size would not surprise me if it would be a UFO or the Arc of Noah...
Any comments on it isn't their anymore ? Well it could easily be covered in snow again.
It doesn't look like you fly over it from Europe to New York either.
It is around for a couple of years now as far as I know and the only explanation I've heard is it is a satellite glitch... Of all answers that's the last one I'm buying.
