UFO or Lens Flare in Google Street View  Jacksonville, Texas

By Anthony Castellano

     Google Maps helps many people do various things, but tracking UFOs might be a new one.

Andrea Dove contacted ABC News affiliate KLTV in East Texas with an interesting tip. Dove was using Google Maps to get directions to visit her aunt in Jacksonville, Texas, when she spotted a UFO while using the Street View option.

Don’t believe it? Try it yourself by simply searching Jacksonville, Texas, and panning upward toward the sky in Street View to spot the reddish UFO near the clouds — although no one in Jacksonville has ever reported seeing one. . . .


  1. Im not a critic, however i did check into this myself and quickly debunked the finding as if you advance a few feet down the road you will find that the reflection repeats itself on the ground. This is a reflection created by the sun... Sorry.

  2. Greetings Donald,

    Thanks for taking time to make comment, and no need to apologize–your in good company.


  3. I have seen things..You dont see them if you are not looking..We are so busy we simply dont look..And to prove this to a friend of mine we sat outside late at night on a bench together and i said ok..lets look up..and within 30 mins we spotted very defined star like lights crossing the skies in various patterns..3 of them in that period of time..some slower and some where much faster..One we saw..wooshed thru space..very fast..the other two seemed to have a steadier pace..but fast nonetheless..
