Forget about Godzilla, this Meag-Bug was recently discovered using Google Maps. Look at the size of it! It will take on the world as we speek. Hehe, Sabine Wieluch and David Horm submitted this recently, and you can see it for your self if you point your Google Maps to this geographic position: 48.857635, 10.205424 and 0.001193,0.005322 (Germany). First one that locates it, and posts the Google Maps link in comments, winns! What’s your explanation? I beleive that this image isn’t satellite one, but made with airoplane (google maps usually have High-Res photos taken from planes). In my opinnion, this bug is infact quite little, but was stuck on plane’s camera lense. Any other opinnions? For more interesting Google Earth illusions, visit our Google Earth Category.

    I just got it, but I believe it’s impossible to paste a link, because google earth is a program that you load onto your computer, unlike google maps which appears in your internet browser.

    That is really cool. I had no idea the google earth images were taken out of planes–I was thinking satellites. Hm.

    • coolio

      they r taken out of satellites silly! just this one is’nt it’s a fake!

    • Finkle

      A lot of the pictures are taken from panes around here.. our farm and some of are neighbors have plane shots and some neighbors don’t, and you can tell the difference between the two.

    What do I win? (I’m guessing there is nothing and you just wanted someone to find the link for you)

    aw man, Now i have to bring a LARGE can of bugspray the next time i go to germany.

  • Pandas

    aaaaaaaahhhhhhh!!!! its gonna take over the world!!!!!!!!! :)

  • Abner

    Size does matter, it seems.

    Try this one, too:

    That’s the giant scale-model landscape built by the Chinese Army in the middle of the desert, the replica of the entire region of Aksai Chin, occupied by China since their war with India in 1962. It’s huge (700 by 900 meters) and shows every feature from that area.

    What hasn’t been revealed is its function, which is why it’s the subject of so much discussion.

  • Pirate Pete

    “genius” was so smart that he neglected to find in the description of illusion that it was explained and every1 knew that.

    you guys, my google earth must be newer, cause i found the spot, but there is a new pic there, so there’s no bug

  • kike

    hahaha, yeah i saw this story in cnet’s buzz out loud, its seems that this part of the world they took from a printed air photo, and when they scanned it, a bug got in the scanner

  • Anonymous

    go on google earth, fly to hulen germany, then go west and you will see a spot where the field is a strange colour…THATS WHERE THE BUG USED TO BE! stupid idiots, why take it away… :(

  • SpellBee

    You dolts! Isn’t it so obvious? The person who sent the pic obviously went on this place on Google Earth, and a bug crawled over his computer screen! Cockroaches did that to me more than once!

  • Elliexx ANIMALS ROCK!!

    yeh its obvious that the bug was on the camera lenses – or the plane window. also its high quality with the bug, just not with the rest of the pic.

    If you type in giant_insect in the fly to search menu it will take you to where the bug used to be … google put a pic of it back on for ya!

  • Anonymous

    Looking at this, I see two or three people crossing the street casting a shadow behind them. Is it really a bug or is it only supposed to look like a bug?

  • Cole

    Optically, the bug CANNOT be on the lens of the camera that was in the plane… Otherwise it would be completely blurred !

    It must have been on the film itself, or on the window of the scanner that was used to digitize the photo.

    Google Earth is updated every 6 months so some things have disappeared. Also check out Devil’s Tower in Wyoming.
