    Interesting. Looks like a reflection. At first I thought it was a key (maybe it’s the Key to the Universe!)

  2. Bob says:

    It looked like a guitar case. & I can see writing on it … like between the thin part & the thick part. The letters are in white.

  4. Bob says:

    It’s photoshopped(: If you click the View Larger Map & then you look around then you look up again, it’s not there anymore. Tehee.

  5. Ivan says:

    @Bob – I don’t think it’s photoshopped, it shows up in Google Maps, you can move it around and its there, its just not there if you move to another photo. (Why would anyone photoshop a random place, with an unidentifiable shape??)
    It’s probably just something that passed in front of one of the cameras for a moment.

  6. Ryzer says:

    @Everyone Could be part of the bracket the camera was on?

  7. John says:

    Bob the white letters say google, also this picture is creeeepy!

  8. dvisions says:

    This is very intriguing. steering wheel mounted gear shifter or turn signal lever. I see a faint arrow on it even. The question is, how did it reflect onto the plastic covering over the camera?

  9. Sherry says:

    Looks like someone laid a screwdriver or similar tool on the top camera and forgot it. Maybe it’s even from the official Google tool kit.

  10. mars says:

    LOL. Maybe google could run a competition. The person to correctly identifies the object after being drawn from a barrel wins.

  11. necronaut says:

    Probably someone left this up when fitting the camera: https://buckandryan.co.uk/images/2/32764_380x380.jpg and it rolled of when they hit a bump

  12. JBantha says:

    @necronaut It looks just like it… perhaps it just roll and fall from over the Lens’ Top

  13. Taiyuh says:

    @necronaut Not quite round enough, but quite close. I think you’re right about someone leaving some sort of tool up though.

  14. josh says:

    looks like a crafts man screwdriver…

  15. Sean says:

    Notice that on the local copy and on the actual streetview viewer, the object is in a slightly different position, above a different building? Very interesting.

  16. Louise says:

    went to that place on Google Street VIew, and it’s not even actually there.

  17. Sean says:

    Silly screwdriver, your suppose to be down on Earth, not in the sky 😀

  18. AJ says:

    That actually looks like an 3/8″ hex socket. Might even be a 7mm sized one.

  19. fab says:

    it’s an ALLEN screwdriver, guys…

  20. The smartest says:

    @everyone If you’ve ever seen the google vehicle that captures these images, you’d know that the camera is in a plexiglass box. There was obviously something on top of the box.
    As many people have said, it looks like a screwdriver, though, it’s hard to really tell with the glare of the sun right above it. Either it rolled off while they were driving or they noticed and took it off, which is why it won’t appear in more than one or two pictures.

  21. Michael says:

    If you click right on the MH Cover in the middle of the street and look up and turn arround it’s very visible. It looks like a hex boolt screwdriver, Maybe they were ajusting something and left it there and started taking pictures with the driver in a bolt, it would appear floating…

  22. maRiLU says:

    it’s gone =(

  23. Ayanna says:

    Yea it looks like a screw driver was left on the car and just as it fell the picture was snapped.

  24. Nick says:

    Its totally a female part of an extension cord… Maybe to a laptop

  25. Zack says:

    It’s a street post guys. (lamppost.)

  26. John Shetlesky says:

    New street view images have replaced this photo of a “UFO”.

  27. cat says:

    looks like a plug of some sort
