Google Maps Anomalies: The UFO That Wasn’t

Google Maps continues to be a great source of bizarre, and often humorous anomalies. Most of which turn out to be far different than you’d first imagine.

For yet another example, earlier this year UFO Sightings Daily shared Google Maps coordinates leading to what appeared to be a flying saucer hidden among trees in Romania. This object, it turned out, had been the focus of much debate for years. Was it really a saucer? Why, then, would it be parked in that spot for such a long time?

It appeared like any classic UFO would – circular, silver, and with a rounded top. But as we all know, looks can be deceiving.

As The Mirror reported back in March, this flying saucer turned out to actually be a water tower. The truth is out there.
