After Cuban ghost ship, we have Malaysia ghost plane. It passed over a month from Seong Chai Low’s submission. Finally his Google Earth illusion is up! I’m moving along slowly, posting all your unreviewed submission (there are over 100 pending in my mailbox). I like to say that “patience is a virtue”, so be sure that all of them will be posted some day, no need to worry we’ll run out of optical illusions yet. Low included description how to find this flick in Google Earth/Google Maps.
Low: “I enjoy your site, always visit your site once in a while to see what new pictures you have published. Here’s one snapshot from Google Maps. I’m not sure how the ghost image of the airplane appear. Anyway, this is taken on the Penang, Malaysia (the country where I’m staying). I don’t know how to get the latitudes and longitudes from the Google map. So I capture another 2 zoomed-out map and highlighted the location with a red box (inside). Hope you like it.”
