I am just curious as to what in the world is in the sky at 47.110579,9.227568. I am very confused.

A bird thats verrry blurry. the effect is its wing coloring smeared across because its rapid flying motion.

If this is true and it is a bird then why if you follow the street through the tunnel and out the other side and look up in the sky to the right is this exact same thing in the sky among the trees? It looks exactly the same i'm really thinking it's a smudge on the lense because you can make out a blurry round outline along the treeline beside the "figure".

Cant be either the googlemaps cars have a lot of cameras on the roof and if it was a smudge on 1  camera you would only be able to see it at a certain angle in street view. I call googlmaps playing a prank or god?? LOL or the people of Switzerland got there hands on a gigantic projector that could be seen on the clouds??

Or is it a prophet who descended on earth?
It looks like a person dressed and lifting his hand and then like showing something!

I couldn't make out the black figure, but look at the pink one. It looks like a little girl dressed in pink and if you look really close she has wings.

When I looked at it, I noticed something strange.
If you start at the location mentioned (47.110579,9.227568), while in streetview and seeing this 'object', click on the arrows on the street to move west towards the tunnel (west). Right before you enter the tunnel (http://bit.ly/dnbjkc) you can still (barely) see it in the same location in the 'sky' (or frame). Go in once more step (single click on street arrpw) and you'll see that the lights in the tunnel are now distorted on the location where this 'object' is. Now, if you double-click some point on the street inside the tunnel to move towards that location, you'll see that the 'object' or blur disappears. Now, while looking west into the tunnel (same viewing direction as you came in), click on the street arrow that points east (in the direction back out of the tunnel) to come back out from inside the tunnel. You'll see the that object is not there anymore. Where is it? Pan across the sky, it is now on the eastern side of the sky (http://bit.ly/9Iz3up)!
A different time that I tried it, going towards the tunnel by double-clicking on the street, would have it shift 180 degrees in the sky before the tunnel and without having to back up.
I hope that the links I posted work and allow people to see what i've seen.
I'm excited to see if anyone else sees the same.
This means that it is probably some sort of computing issue in the way the images are put together and presented to the user.

I think you are seeing an overlay in an incorrect position it looks like the tops of the nearby trees
Re: What exactly is this figure in the sky at the location 47.110579,9.227568? QuestionAnswer1 12/21/10 6:39 PM
If you look at the black part of the figure, and  look to where it is "Pointing" there is a small little round figure...isn't that peculiar?
Re: What exactly is this figure in the sky at the location 47.110579,9.227568? saraaaaah 2/4/11 3:05 PM
I you look at the 'figure' then do a slow, 360 turn, you can see that the top parts of the tree are different colours. And when i went closer the the tunnel, right before you enter it, the top of the tunnel is the same red/brown/purple colour that the trees were :)

LOL you guys couldn't get it any more wrong hahahahahaha do a lil more research instead of blabbing it all the way.. if you zoom in on the flying thing to the max you'll see a watermark that say "2008 (or 09) Google" hahahahahahahahaha Google just punk'd you freaks!

Here's a close-up to you freaks!

just a image that was post it, it's a really big image to be true and just visualized by street view... but the watermark with 2009 Google is no proof because you'll find Google copyright all around also in the water.
Re: What exactly is this figure in the sky at the location 47.110579,9.227568? darktrail 8/9/11 3:50 PM

Re: What exactly is this figure in the sky at the location 47.110579,9.227568? Figureguy123 8/10/11 6:25 PM
Could just be something burned into the picture itself, it happens once in a while even on digital cameras. Heck, it's even more likely on the expensive ones, they just come out better.
Re: What exactly is this figure in the sky at the location 47.110579,9.227568? mili2 8/10/11 10:47 PM
Simply..is a sticker stuck at the camera. In all the way appears in the same place. don´t have a mistery...
Re: What exactly is this figure in the sky at the location 47.110579,9.227568? angelangelesiii 8/11/11 7:48 AM
if it's something stuck at the camera, why is it disappearing inside a tunnel? i thought of it as something stuck at the camera at first but could not say it anymore after passing through the tunnel.
Re: What exactly is this figure in the sky at the location 47.110579,9.227568? Figureguy123 8/11/11 4:02 PM
Simple, the figure is in the sky so when you look for it it disappears in the spot it's supposed to be in, when looking out the tunnel. That and the camera that took the image outside of the tunnel could be a different one. As said earlier, the google map cars have more than one camera on top of them.

I don't know what it is, but if you scroll (or zoom) all the way in on it, and look at the very bottom between the pink and black figures, it says "copyright symbol", 2006Google.

it is something google map put on top of their camera lens to create an illusion hence increase visit to their website. if i can only attach screen capture on this discussion, i can show you the image even gets inside the tunnel. and you can even see the change in color of the trees covered by these transparent thingy or cellophane.

If you look at (47.110579, 9.227568) and look at the bridge going over you, it turns into a gray smudge instead of the brown and pink, so it must be something on the camera.

If you continue through the tunnel the figure is still in the sky upon exit. So really guys .. what can it be ?? Anyone live in Switzerland that wants to take a visit and see what it really is ?

Start from wherever the green arrow takes you (the starting point) and go about 8 or 9 "steps" (click the arrow 8 or 9 times) toward the tunnel and look at the figure again.  The silhouette(s) are more prominent there. I'm open minded to anything, but I'd still say it's bird poop or some sort of reflection.  Looks cool though :P

I went to the exact location of 47.110579,9.227568 and went to street view and went west about 5-7 times (you can see the tunnel but not too close) and looked up...got a pretty clear view of what looks like someone in a black cloak and someone in a pink dress...freaky! Hope this helps. :DDD

It could be, a mountain thats not completely covered by clouds. I know it can't be a smuge on the camera..because it's google images. idk..somehow i just doubt it's that because it's not like, on the top or on the edge. Who knows:) I'd like to keek it a mystery.

Re: What exactly is this figure in the sky at the location 47.110579,9.227568? guilherme__ 10/15/11 11:48 AM
If you use some logic, you will find that its something over one of the cameras, the picture is always at the same position and when you switch sides of the road the picture move 180º ( the car rotate 180º when going that side ). So the relative position of the picture by the car don't change
Re: What exactly is this figure in the sky at the location 47.110579,9.227568? sdonaldsonjr 10/17/11 1:28 PM
correct answer is that it is a bug that got squashed on the lens. If you go into the lane on the north side, it is on the same part of the lens. That is why there is no relative difference when driving "towards" the object. Sorry a dead bug isnt the same as a ghost, alien, or god.
Re: What exactly is this figure in the sky at the location 47.110579,9.227568? pandahbearyah 10/22/11 1:18 PM
do i think its a figure? yes i do. to me it looks like a really tall lady that can fly(lol) with no wings, and shes holding a really big beer bottle on her left. but, i'll believe that when pigs fly.i got my brother to look at it (hes 20) and he said the same thing i did. it was really blurry for me, but it mite be a blimp that is made out to be a figure? and yes it would look the same in different areas because just like the cars that move as you move, so does this image. anyone can believe what they want to believe but i seriously believe that its a blimp. but it might also be a date on the whole image, because its probably only a digitalized image like a video game type thing. so believe what you want, but these are my beliefs and theorys.

Re: What exactly is this figure in the sky at the location 47.110579,9.227568? galilei 10/30/11 6:17 AM
something got stuck on the camera lens, on the parallel road and go east ward ; the same effect appears again on right side of view.Going forward or backward on that road, the effect would not move or change (doesn't get closer/ we can't pass it); if the thing was on the sky and it appeared on both directions; it means you have to reach it at some point on both sides; that doesn't happen. This also shows that google van was going on opposite directions photographing the two roads.
Re: What exactly is this figure in the sky at the location 47.110579,9.227568? thomas3333 10/30/11 6:46 AM
Its a fault in the camara when you look at it from google earth you can see it remains in the same place above the van all the time even in the tunnel though you can only barely see it in the tunnel because its gets darker the further you go in .Its most definitly something up with the cam not anything in the sky ........

This is just a watermark they are all over the place to show Google owns the picture. To prove this, there is a picture:

Re: What exactly is this figure in the sky at the location 47.110579,9.227568? HSFY2012 11/6/11 2:58 PM
If you face the trees after going into street view, without moving, you can see that the tops of the trees are blurred in the shape of the curved part of a circle. If you follow the circle around by turning, you can see clearly that the figures are inside the blurred circle part. I think Google has put it in to mess with us lol. It may also help to explain the small figures (2) at the top of the trees, that the figures in the sky are facing.
Just because it has the watermark on it doesn't mean anything, the rest of the world is watermarked also. Good deduction there.

If you rotate 180° to face the other way down the road, then, head further down the road till you reach a lamppost.  Turn to look at the lamppost and you will see that it seems "split" in two - like what you see if you looked at it through a car window that has a rain droplet on it!  Also, the strange black-and-red "effect" still hovers overhead and "follows" the Google imaging van.  All this points to simply some water on the lens and something like an insect's wing or piece of coloured cloth stuck to it.  But the simple truth doesn't interest some people.  They see a photo of a weather balloon seen at a rare angle in strange light and they'd rather believe it was evidence of intelligent life on earth!!

Everyone noticing the "Google 2008" mark on the mysterious object, and thinking that Google placed it there, read this. If you zoom in on any one spot when in street view it has Google, and whatever year the picture was taken/uploaded. Therefore it is nothing to do with Google trying to trick people. The most believable explanation is that some light and colour have become distorted and formed these shapes. ;)
Re: What exactly is this figure in the sky at the location 47.110579,9.227568? curlystyles 12/14/11 5:56 AM
We have saw this and travelled in the tunnel and further on, wherever you go it follows. So, it seems, as if there is something on the lense of the camera, we went in a few tunnels (POSSIBLY 3) and we could see blurs of the figure inside the tunnel. Dont let this put you off going to Switzerland...

We would not like to be bubble-bursters. So, lets say its MARIO & PEACH!




this was discovered by 2 thirteen year old masterminds.
We would like to thank Mrs.Thompson for giving us the oppurtunity to use the computers in B10.
We would like to thank our friend, Beth, for telling us about this serious subject.
We'd like to thank our mother and fathers for having us, and putting  a brian to the universe.

Hey, genius, look at any frame of any street view. Zoom in a bunch. Google watermarks everywhere.

Ladies and gentlemen, 
I'm proud to say I solved the mistery in a moment of spare time and nerdness, it being bad weather over my place:

As you would go to this location:  46° 55.211'N  9° 33.700'E, you'll see that on that very moment something "hits" the Google Street View camera (perhaps a leaf). How do you know? Well, locating towards the bridge you'll see nothing unusual anywhere in the sky, however on a certain photograph, whilst driving direction main road, you'll see on your left hand side, i.e. ca. at the mountains, a brown, strange shaped object on top of the clouds.
When following the rest of the road, you'll see the shape changes (it becomes bigger and sometimes becomes triangle-like) untill you will - eventually - reach the mentioned mistery place.

Sorry for spoiling your wow-experience and for disapointing any christians hoping for a Swiss miracle.

Yours,
Simon

i doubt its a sign tho... Christ rebuked the pharisees for looking for signs and if anything its just a smudge on the camera, but i agree that all who desire to be free from sin and have eternal life MUST come to christ, for he Himself said "I AM the way, the truth, and the Life, no man cometh unto the Father save Through Me"

Not sure what it is, but these coordinates show that it's in front of some power lines.
47.110035,9.284357
Be sure to look at it in street view of course.
But I suspect it simply has something to do with the camera.

after looking at it for a while, I found that the driver must've taken an out and back drive on this highway.
at the beginning of the way out, there is nothing in that spot in the field of vision, but right after this camera shot ( http://maps.google.com/maps?q=47.038619,+9.455677&num=1&t=h&vpsrc=0&ie=UTF8&ll=47.038641,9.455712&spn=0.001055,0.002642&z=19&iwloc=A ) it appears, though in a different shape.
if you keep clicking down the road, you can see its shape change quite a bit.

my guess is that it's a bug that is slowly being smeared with the wind of driving on the highway. the original location you posted was on the route back. and to put it simply, if it were really something in the sky, then its location would be the same relative to the ground, not the vehicle (i.e. at the point you posted, it's to the back left of the vehicle. if it were in the sky, on the other side of the road it would appear to be to the front right. it is, instead, still to the back left.)

To me it looks like a girl in a pink dress standing next to a dark figure. It doesn't look like smudge because with a smudge, it would look the same no matter where you are on the street. As you get closer to the tunnel, they get longer. Almost like they're standing in a doorway of sorts. To me, I think it may be supernatural but that's just my opinion.

I think that the smaller pink figure seems to have wings and is facing away from us or towards the darker figure. It also appears that he/she is kneeling. the darker figure seems to have an arm raised almost as if putting a palm on the pink winged figure. This "projection would have to be huge to appear at this size at that height in the sky. I doubt this image is something on the google camera, its most likely a massive projection someone put up or Gods doing. Maybe even aliens...

It's just a camera malfunction. I was reading guarona's comment, and while I don't know if this is what they were trying to get at, if you DO go towards the tunnel, once you get to the traffic signal light (closest one is on the left), if you look up, the "figure" is distorting the trees, and if you go one more step further into the tunnel and look up, the "figure" is now out of the sky, and if you look closely, its right on the rim, or edge, of the tunnel (harder to see because of the darkly colored stone). And like guarona has said below, if you go even further into the tunnel, the lights get distorted into what seems to be the shape of what was in the sky. Therefore it is a camera problem.

So I was feeling that feeling in my stomach and chest when youre watching a scary movie and you know something crazy is about to pop up. But back to youre comment...... umm I didnt see what you was speaking of. I went as close as I could without going in the tunnel, and I was searching for it in that place, down the road, in the sky.... and im searching, and searching. THE IMAGE IS RIGHT ABOVE ME AND WHERE I AM, this time. Im right in front of the tunnels entrance, and its closer this time right above me. Man. Soooooo scary!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

And how in the world can you write this off as a "smudge"........... 2 figures, one in brown, one in pink... long floor (or cloud) length clothing.... you see 2 heads, 2 bodies. No matter where you go, how ever far down the street, it is so close! right there! in the sky! like duuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuhhhhhhhhhhh. there is no way you could write this off as ANYTHING LESS THAN Jesus and Mary, or God and Mary. They all work in mysterious ways. Its not just black and white with this subject. Shaking my head. Thats what is sooo wrong with this world. Just because God or Jesus, cant stop bad things from happening in THIS WORLD, does not make them not true or real or OUR saviors. They are humans with superhero powers. Shaking my head. Sigh. The unbelievers will get it one day. Maybe not. I said my piece. And im gonna go say my prayers and go to sleep!!! Anywho.

Re: What exactly is this figure in the sky at the location 47.110579,9.227568? rush_ 9/26/12 10:24 PM
I would say what is sooo wrong with this world is people reaching their conclusions and looking no further into things than after they feel they've found enough to convince themselves that they're right...
 
it's really simple. jump to the other side of the street and look for it... guess what. it's not in the same place in the sky. it's in the same place of the car, which means either god and mary or whoever you seem to think it is, pulled a complete 180 just because the car turned around

It seems when you start off way back down the road it is just a black triangle, then turns into a black circle, then a triangle again and after a little while disappears and appears behind you as 3 small figures. Then a little further it is just a Woman in Pink. Then eventually the dark figure appears.

if you really look at it, the size of the object doesn't change unless the position of the sun is in a drastically different position, this would mean that there is something wrong with the Lense or the camera for that section and it is displacing the light. Just because it looks to be in the clound in one section or in the woods in another doesn't make it a ghost or a castle in the sky. it just happens to me a fault with the camera. i Happened prevously to a camera on a car in Austrailia and made it look like a snake was in the sky.

It is a smudge.
There are two roads, going different directions (Go a little forward, and you will see two tunnels)
On the lower road, the smudge is on the top right of the camera.
On the higher road, the smudge is gone. Where did it go? Well, the car is facing a different direction, so if you turn around, the smudge is at the top right of the camera again.
Some people think it teleports, because they do not notice that there are two roads.
Hope this helps.

Well i just did a research type thing on it and what is noticed is when you come out of the tunnel..you see cars on the street. But when you go beyond the cars and turn back or rotate the arrow thing on the road you see the car is either disappeared or appears smudged. The same has happened with the spot up there. Because when you come out of the tunnel, you do not see the spot in the sky...but hanging in the air among the trees and hill. As simple as that...just a glitch in the camera or photoshoped image. nothing curious.

I know what this should be, its a joke of the Google-Creators, it should show us the Death and God that they work together, God stands for Life, Death stands for... Death. The Googl-Creators wants to show us that there is no Conflict, the most people think that Death and God are enemies, but hell yeah, you see they seem to be best friends. Here are some Links which CAN be the picture on Google Maps, Google Earth, you just have to imagine it so that God and Death stands in this position:

I think y'all fell for it.

If you look really close at the picture and zoom in as far as possible (I hope the file works), you'll see 'google' written really faintly on the black figure. You might need to tilt your screen a little.
