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

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. @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.

  5. 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?

  6. 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.

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

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

  9. 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.

  10. @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.

  11. 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…

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