What do you make of this? Had this image simply appeared on the Internet, with no grid reference, I would have passed it off as a hoax. However, someone posted the precise location on the Paracast forums, so I opened up Google Earth and took a look. I was expecting some vague, amorphous blob. But look at it. Click the image to see a larger version.
This looks for all the world like an image of a flying triangle, such as the type photographed in Belgium in 1989-90. I don't normally steal other people's images, but this image has appeared in so many books, magazines and websites, I dare say no-one will be pursuing me for breach of copyright. This image, of one of the 1989-90 Belgian FTs is generally regarded to be an authentic photograph of something, although no-one is exactly sure what.
What do you think? Has a black triangle been captured by Google Earth? Could it be some kind of helipad? The roof of a triangular building? An oil rig? Even if it is a craft of some kind, it doesn't mean it's from anywhere other than Earth. I think this anomaly was photographed somewhere over Australia. Flying triangles have been seen all over the globe since the mid-late 1980's, often moving silently at low altitude, before shooting away at great speed. The Belgian airforce sent aircraft to intercept FTs on a number of occasions during 1989-90. Crews reported incidents of radar jamming whenever they locked on to the craft. When they tried to approach the FTs, the mystery craft would often accelerate to speeds in excess of 1800 km per hour, leaving the Belgian pilots far behind.
Here's some footage the Belgian airforce shot of one of the craft pursued.
Does anyone know of any other possible UFOs caught on Google Earth? If so, please let me know.
