Google has attempted to photograph our entire planet. And with this amazing task comes much photography of the weird, and the downright odd. When there’s no place to hide, the creepy ends up being exposed, and many strange and puzzling images have been brought to the forefront. Some of these images are simply silly, while others remain a mystery to this day.
Some of the images on this list may have been pranks, but there is no way to know this for sure. Others have been speculated over, as many people on the internet are keen to offer their theory of events, or their understanding of these images. Theories range from alien conspiracies, to cloning, to murders being exposed. It’s likely we will never know the exact circumstances of these pictures but that does not make them any less disturbing.
14. Pentagram Peninsula
We start our list with this perfectly positioned pentagram captured on Google Maps, which left many who saw it rather confused about not only its origin, but its purpose as well. Perhaps it is a symbol of witchcraft, Communism, or something else entirely. One thing is for sure though, this one seems to leave anyone who comes across it at a loss for words (including us).
13. Conjoined Granny Twins
This image is so jarring at first glance, as it captures what appears to be two old-lady twins sitting side by side. When examined a little closer, it seems that the women are in fact occupying a wheelchair. Some people may think that the two women are joined together like conjoined twins. Others suspect it’s one woman, and the way two photos overlapped created this illusion. Nevertheless, there is certainly something intriguing about this odd image.
12. Bodies In The Trash
This image contains what (at first glance) appears to be a group of dead bodies surrounding a dumpster. However, to the viewer’s relief, under close inspection it becomes clear that these are not real bodies, but just some mannequins. Nevertheless, mannequins are creepy in their own right (wouldn’t you agree?) and there is just something very unnerving about this image.
11. Giant Bulls Eye
There is certainly something strange about this giant target that was spotted in Nevada. We have so many questions, but to begin with, who on Earth created this target? People? Aliens? Is this proof that we are not alone? Whoever created this was definitely up to no good. We can all agree that targets are never a good sign, and this one definitely brings with it a strange feeling.
10. The Broken Face
This odd broken face, that was spotted by someone on a hillside, is perhaps one of the most puzzling images on the list. One is not only left to question how the face got there but also, why? Along with this it’s hard to tell if the face is the result of a broken doll or if it is molded from a real human face. If so, who owns this face? Some have gone as far as claiming it’s the face of Jesus. Whatever the case there’s certainly something shiver-inducing about this picture.
9. Bird People
You might have already seen this one floating around the net, but it’s creepy nonetheless. This image captures what seems to be fully grown adults with bird masks on their heads standing in a line. Although this image is most likely some kind of an odd prank (haha!) it doesn’t make it any less creepy. Seriously! What is it about birds? Also, there’s just something particularly eerie about the woman at the front right.
8. Animal Girl
Okay, okay, so this image is just outright weird (we know) but it happens to also be extremely confusing. Is it a girl? Is it a llama? Is it a human Barbie doll? Well, the verdict is not out! One thing is for sure, there is something definitely not right in this picture and it’s certainly left the internet in a frenzy of puzzlement and questioning.
7. Writing On The Roof
This image shows the roof of a building that has the words, “come downtown and play” written across it in what seems to be permanent, black marker. This is not only an odd thing to write, but it also leads one to question just who this writing is directed towards. It’s definitely an odd and creepy thing to scrawl across a rooftop, whoever it is intended for.
6. Guitar Forest
This forest perfectly cut out like a guitar at first appears to be something quite breathtaking and creative, to say the least. However, on second thought, one may be left to wonder just who or what exactly made this interesting pattern. Was it done by humans? Nature? Or was it something else? Like many other mysteries on this list, there have been no answers provided as of yet.
5. A Human Skull
This image spotted by some eagle-eyed viewers captures what appears to be a human skull peeking out among miles of rock. There’s something very unsettling about this picture, as why exactly is a human skull lying out in the open this way? Who was this person when they were alive? And most importantly, how did they meet their end? Again, we might never know.
4. Masked People In Traffic
This image which shows a group of masked individuals staring straight into the camera is beyond disturbing and chilling. Not only are people in animal costumes really scary, but the fact that these people are standing in the road, just staring at the viewers, adds another element of straight up creepiness. Just what exactly are these masked people up to?
3. A Plane Crash
As if there weren’t enough creepy things out there to look at (thanks, Google!), this image was way more tragic than creepy, but the fact that Google maps actually captured a devastating plane crash like this is still very weird, to say the least. This image shows the wreckage just after the crash occurred and tragedy can be seen up close.
2. A Murder Scene
This image, of what very much resembles someone dragging a body along a dock, is by far one of the creepiest on the list. So disturbing! This moment captured in time highlights the true horrors of this world. It’s unclear exactly what is happening, but many people are sure that a body is about to be thrown into the water, and that the red track on the dock is a trail of this particular victim’s blood. Others argue that the dock is merely wet, not bloody. We’d like to believe the latter.
1. Seeing Double
This image captures what appears to be two of the same man walking along the sidewalk. Is this proof of cloning? Or perhaps the man is simply a twin. Nevertheless, the almost identical body language of the two makes this image almost inexplicable. And also, why is the second man so far behind the first? This image leaves an endless amount of questions. Or maybe it’s another funny photo overlap.
