Pink UFOs have been spotted in the skies on Google Street View, according to The Huffington Post. The ghostly images, which strongly resemble the sort of unidentified flying object you might find twirling about in a low-budget science fiction flick, can be spotted hovering menacingly over the skies of Jacksonville, Florida. Are alien beings from another world attempting to call The Friendship State home, or is this just some sort of pesky lens flare?
After giving the pink UFO photos a good once-over, photo-video analyst Marc Dantonio doesn’t believe the picture captures alien technology. What we’re dealing with here is just a simple case of old-fashioned lens flare.
“It is oriented exactly perpendicular to the sun, which is, of course, the source of the lens flare,” Dantonio explained to The Huffington Post. “The red color — although apparently odd — is not really unexpected. Color can be related to chromatic aberration where the light rays do not reach the same focal point, causing the final artifact to appear in a primary color like red, green or blue.”
According to KLTV, the pink UFOs don’t show up on a particular street or at a certain address. All you have to do is point Google Street View to Jacksonville, Texas. Look long enough in the heavens overhead and you’re likely to spy the unidentified flying object hovering mysteriously above the town. A reporter for KLTV couldn’t find a single person who had seen anything pink and UFO-shaped in the area recently.
Although it may seem that these alien spaceships have a thing for the skies above Jacksonville, ABC News reports that another such pink UFO/lens flare anomaly was spotted in New Mexico. Curious parties are encouraged to look up the Sky City Casino in Acoma Pueblo, New Mexico on Google Street View. There, hovering overhead, is the same pink UFO.
