Google Maps: Strange object spotted in river sparks UFO debate

Google Maps helps people to map the world. From visiting famous landmarks to being able to see your home, you can travel to almost anywhere in the world you want to. However, sometimes users also uncover some strange scenes that leaves them questioning.


  • Google Maps Street View: Man caught in terrifying position on cliff

This was definitely the case for this scene in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

The scene takes place in the Allegheny River where one user suggests they have spotted a UFO.

They posted the photo on Reddit and captioned it: “Possible UFO????”

The strange object is white in colour and looks very out of place in the river.

Many have claimed that it could be a sign of extraterrestrial activity.

No other objects are around this circular shape, in fact there are no other objects in the river at all.

When zoomed in, the object looks metal and has holes in the top.

So what could this be? Has Google uncovered a UFO sighting?

Unfortunately there is no instant explanation as to what this could be which is why so many suggested it could be a UFO.

At closer inspection, it appears it could be some sort of boat or water tower instead of a vehicle from outer space.

However, there are no other boats or objects on the river which makes this scene so unusual.

Even when zoomed in, it is hard to identify what the object exactly is because it looks so out of place.


  • Google Maps Street View: Man’s body appears very odd in bizarre photo

This isn’t the first time an object has sparked UFO debates amongst Google Maps users.

Eagle-eyed viewers have spotted what they claim to be a UFO hidden in a forest in Romania, just outside Timisoara.

The bizarre object is white and shaped almost like a spaceship with small holes around the edge.

One user on Google wrote: “Amazing. Its Real, Been There And Seen It.”

However another said: “It is just a water filtering facility built in the architectural style of Wiener Secession.”

This also appears to be a water tower but it is placed in the middle of the forest which made many Google Maps users question extra terrestrial life.

The image went viral and has been called Alien UFO Resort on the destination on Google Maps.

Both of the water towers looked very similar and both had circular holes on the top which is what made people question what they were seeing.
