    Looks like a branch or bird turd stuck on the lens.

    Yeah, looks like an extreme closeup of an evergreen branch. Strange things happen when you seam images together.

    yeah the little 360 degree view camera was parked real close to a tree or something and you get the tower in the back ground the branch in the foreground and the house building structure below that...pretty cool pic though.

    Looks like a giant tree twig in the sky. Blew into the camera while the car was driving? Look south and you will see the Google car probably drove through that tree limb sticking out in the road.

    Either this or the alien space ship cloud generator is on the fritz.

    Oh, come on people! This isn't even a good photochop job. Nothing to see here, move along. On the other note, perhaps this is a picture of a slow news day at [H]. lol

    It's 2 days before Christmas, what do you expect? We can't just fill the ENTIRE day with "best of", "worst of", etc. lists.

    The Google SV car runs through a shrubbery before going down that 'road'. If you follow it back far enough you'll notice the 'twig' moving around on the camera lens, and the tree's from where it comes.

    Looks to me like Santa deviated from the NORAD flight path and they had to take him down... that's what you get for trying to get an early start on things....

    Since it's in Italy, famous home of pastafarians, it's obviously part of The Flying Spaghetti Monster. THAT is his noodlely appendage.
