Basketball Player’s Airport Shadow

Hmm, it looks like some giant basketball player lives at the Munich airport in Germany. This photo was taken by satellite, and can be found using Google Maps. Is this really a shadow or something else? My sanity says one thing, and my eyes believe something else. How did this occur? You tell me! This illusion was submitted by user called Halosassin and belongs to Google Earth category. Similar illusions: mega zoom airport, flying car, Cuban ghost ship

  1. well first I opened google and typed:
    48 21 45 n, 11 48 35 e

    as for the lower sx of the pix and i found the airport… then I saw the image has been updated and the cloud/alien/wathever is not there anymore. Then I notice a big difference in the lower sx corner, this mean the picture has been update by google and the older one was probably one or two years old…… no way to see the original anymore and see the real deal…

  2. Ok, me again.

    The google image of the airport has been updated respectivly:

    7 times in 2005
    and one in 2006, 2006-07-22

    the image on the net has the copyright 2005, so at best there is one new picture on the google earth and we cannot verify the genuinity of the post.

    I wish the site check those images before post them as illusion of the day…

  3. thats a cloud. duh. yes, i know othe peeps said that. no, i dont care. whoops, did i go and ruin your fun? tough.

  4. Where did the shadow go? I searched it on google earth and it’s gone. It’s at 48 21 45 N, 11 48 35 E. It must a plane or a cloud because it’s really big.

  5. This reminds me of the Google Earth image I saw a while back that had a giant insect on it, again somewhere in Germany! Maybe a bug on the camera lens?? It looked squashed.

  6. You guys are idiots. Someone obviously painted that in such a way that it appears to be a shadow. ITS NOT A CLOUD, NOT AN AIRPLANE, ITS PAINT!

  7. If it is an airplane, wouldn’t the satellite that is taking this photo be farther away than an airplane? If I am thinking wright the plane should be seen in the photo. I still think it is photoshopped.

  8. it a giant invisible alien. and the reason you can’t find it is cause the aliens found out it was on there and deleted it. DUH!

  9. code name:frog
    code name:tode
    hey frog i think its a clowd!
    Hey tode i think its a higher power from somewhere beyond the sight of human beigns!
    yeah right frog!
    It is too tode!
    WHATEVER FROG!
    WHATEVER TODE!

  10. Just because it’s no longer on Google Earth doesn’t mean it’s fake. They update their images regularly, so a shadow that was there before obviously wont be there again.
