Google Street View Image of Floating Figures in Switzerland Sky Sparks Internet Conversation Again

This isn’t the first time this strange black and pink figure in the Switzerland sky has made it on the Internet and Google Street View junkie discussion boards, but it’s making a wave on the Internet again. Perhaps the resurgence is because of the recent hoopla over mysterious structures seen from Google Earth in China’s Gobi Desert. But, regardless, the fact that speculation over this image has been drawn out for more than year reveals how fascinated people are over what they can find using Google’s map and earth functions.

See the image for yourself on Google Maps here. If you use your cursor to move the map down the road, the floating images will follow you, getting blurrier as you move further toward the tunnel. Or, here’s a video that will do the work for you showing what was captured on Google Street View at 8877 Quarten, Switzerland:

The image was first discussed on Google, Yahoo and other like discussion boards, then was reported on by Gawker last year and has sparked Internet fascination ever since. The latest wave of discussion over the image occurred in August of this year and appears to be happening again.

So what have people attributed this anomaly to? Most speculation surrounds something like that of God or even Death and a young girl, which some have liked to Mario Bros. Princess Peach.

Some more realistic speculations have included a smudge on the camera, a bird or the blending of two images, such as a tree branch, together.

What do you think it is?
