Brit woman finding friends on Google spots UFOs insteadMarch 30th, 2009 - 8:10 pm ICT by ANI
London, Mar 30 (ANI): A British woman, who was using Google’s new Street View service to find her friends, found a fleet of UFOs in formation instead.
A photograph of the nine silver spheres hovering above a row of shops, including a Coral bookies, was taken by Faye Sharpe, 18, as she viewed her neighbourhood of Wolverley Street in Bethnal Green, East London.
“I was checking out the road to see if I could spot my mates. I thought it looked very strange and zoomed in,” the Sun quoted her as saying.
“I thought it was some planes but they look pretty close together for that. Maybe they are UFOs,” she added.
The photograph has baffled ufologist Nick Pope, who was “very excited” by the image, which he labelled “truly fascinating”.
“It appears to show nine objects flying in near perfect formation. About the only thing I know that can do this is the Red Arrows - and it’s not them,” Pope, who used to investigate sightings for the Ministry of Defence, said.
“I’ve run through the list of possibilities that normally explain these things, but I can’t find an answer,” he added.
Street View, on Google Maps and Google Earth, shows 360-degree views of 25 cities throughout the country. (ANI)
