15 Google Earth pics you won't believe are true

 
 
 
  • Buffalo Herd, Kigosi Game Reserve, Tanzania. We couldn't help but wonder what the great migration would look like from this angle. (Google Earth)
  • Flipped car, Krefeld, Germany. Ummm... you're doing it wrong. Pretty sure this person got expelled from Germany for lack of discipline. (Google Earth)
  • Weird circular pattern close to the Red Sea in Egypt. Again... aliens? (Google Earth)
  • A gigantic sun in the Nevada Desert. Aliens? (Google Earth)
  • Grand Prismatic Spring, Yellow Stone National Park, USA. The third largest hot spring in the world, Grand Prismatic looks a bit like a portal to some psychedelic world. Groovy. (Google Earth)
  • Guitar-shaped forest, Cordoba, Argentina. Measuring over a kilometer in length and made up of over 7 000 cypress and eucalyptus trees, this massive guitar is an Argentinian man's tribute to his late wife. (Google Earth)
  • The Heart of Voh, New Caledonia. Before an aerial image of this heart-shaped lake spread around the globe, Voh was just an unknown French territory in the Pacific Ocean. (Google Earth)
  • Hippo pool, Katavi National Park, Tanzania. Now THAT is a bloat of hippos if we've ever seen one. Looks a little crowded. (Google Earth)
  • Majestic lion, Dunstable, UK. The local Whipsnade Zoo made their mark on the chalk escarpment by cutting an enormous lion shape into the chalk into the side of one of the hills. (Google Earth)
  • A somewhat phallic building, Illinois. And not just any building! This rather bendy bit is actually a church! Illinois Christian Science church, to be exact. (Google Earth)
  • Rainbow plane, New Jersey. Wow! Trippy, right? Well, apparently this is the result of airplane motion caught in five rapidly succeeding photos. We kind of like it. (Google Earth)
  • A Shipwreck, Basrah, Iraq. Apparently the Basrah river is full of similar wrecks. (Google Earth)
  • The Badlands Guardian, Alberta, Canada. This geomorphological feature takes the form of a human face wearing a native American headdress. Additional man-made features (a road and oil well) make it look like it's wearing earphones as well. (Google Earth)
  • Fort Henricus, De Heen, The Netherlands. Look familiar? Kind of like the Castle of Good Hope? Well, it seems like the Dutch definitely have a soft spot for pentagonal star shaped forts.
  • UTA Flight 772 Memorial, Sahara Desert southern Ténéré of Niger. In September 1989 a bomb on board a Union des Transports Aériens flight exploded en route from Brazzaville to Paris caused, killing all 156 passengers and 14 crew members on board. In 2007 this a memorial was created close to the spot where the wreckage was found. (Google Earth
