Image stitching error-- take flat images (photographs) and join together over a (simulated) round surface-- it is imperfect so software is often used.
What you are looking at is a separate image slightly offset downward.
As part of research I do, I regularly superimpose sections of old maps over Google Earth to create one large continuous image from the contiguous
sections. It is tedious, even with software to help. What you are looking at is the common result where the sections join, but not perfectly because
they are two dimensional images on a representation of the three dimensional surface-- (look up "Map Projection").
I am not guessing. Someone else pointed this out and it was dismissed or ignored. None-the-less, for those who work with Google Earth technology it
is familiar, clear and indisputable. Discussion to the contrary does not change what it i, nor does wishing it to be something else.
Learn from this-- many such posts go on for pages when the answer is well known.
