Google Maps Anomalies: A Shadow in the Dark

A simple glitch or weird quirk of the camera can make any simple street scene in Google Maps turn into something out of a nightmare.

For example: The blurred entrance of a building in Florianópolis, Santa Catarina in southern Brazil invites you to take a look. But clicking on it reveals a haunting shadowy figure surrounded by darkness.
