Mysterious blob in google street view in Pleasantville

Post by Monster » Fri May 18, 2018 3:33 pm

This thread is inspired by the angel at night photo within this same forum. (UFOs, Cryptozoology, and The Paranormal)

While searching for chocolate stores near me, I took a look at the street view of Pleasantville, NY. I discovered, to my horror, that there was a green blob in the town at the time that the google car traveled therein. See the link below.

Go north along the rode by clicking on the road. You will see that the green blob followed the google car. It obviously wasn't a splotch or bug on the lens. It clearly was an alien blob in the city, staying in front of the car.

If you go north enough, and you turn the perspective to the south, you can see that the alien blob decided to travel just slightly behind the car rather than in front of it. See below.

EDIT: Misspelled stores. :(

I know it sounds crazy, but it might just be dirt on one of the lenses.

It couldn't possibly be that. It must be an alien blob.

We are both reasonable people: I think we can compromise on "an alien blob on the lens".

At first, I thought it was a blancmange, but it is green, so it must be the rarer vertmange.

It's wild speculation like this that gives this place a bad rep. Look at its colour and stealthy advancing. It's obviously a camouflange.

I was in Pleasantville today, and I bought chocolates. It just so happens that the blob was gone. Or perhaps invisible. I think I found a new cryptid, that can only be photographed with a google camera from a google car.

I thought it was something like, maybe, a plastic bag or camera cover that had blown off the mapping vehicle. It looked like the vehicle pulled over into a parking space, then when it pulled out the mysterious blob appeared.

:lol: At 2 Grand St, they removed the image/shadow of the vehicle on the street (next to that half moon-shaped bit of wall), except the shadow of the camera. And missed wiping the reflection in the windows of the building.
