UFO on Google Street View?

JACKSONVILLE, TX (KLTV) -

A strange thing appears when you search for Jacksonville, Texas on Google Maps. If you select street view and pan around you'll see an unusual floating object with a familiar shape.

It was pointed out to us in an email from Andrea Dove. She lives near Houston and was getting directions to visit her aunt in Jacksonville when she stumbled on the image.

You don't even have to put in a street; just Jacksonville, TX., and go to  street view, then pan around, and there it is: a thing that I don't know what it is. It looks like something from a low-budget 1950s flick.

"And this, this is the bridge where Google Maps captured an image no one can explain. Not even the people of Jacksonville," I said, pointing at the overpass.

CLICK HERE to see the map.

The object was shot right by the Landmark building at the 69 and 79 intersection, Home of Sadler's Restaurant. And across the street there's a Taco Bell. Maybe something was smelling lunch.

Most people who live in Jacksonville just said wow a lot when they saw the image..

I'm just not sure why an unknown object over Jacksonville would be red.

I looked up a dozen different cities and didn't find any similar anomalies. That must make Jacksonville special.

"Do you see anything?" I asked a couple residents.

"Not yet," they replied.

No one I spoke with had seen anything strange over Jacksonville, and although it could be a lens flare or an unexplainable reflection of some nearby object, I saw no indication of anything which fell under that umbrella.

We have contacted Google to see if they are aware of the object, and we have not heard back from them.
