It is quite a known fact that Google Maps has the ability to capture strange, and often, inexplicable moments. This was also the case of the Bainbridge Island, located close to Seattle, which upon a closer look, seems to have the appearance of an alien or a ghost.
What, at the beginning, seems to be a normal island in the middle of a pond, turns into an eerie, face-like shape that can bring chills up anyone’s spine, but especially on the ones of the people living in the vicinity of the pond. The Google Maps images shows that the pond is located close to a human dwelling, on NE West Port Madison Road.
However, even if, at first sight, the image can creep anyone out, on a more thorough analysis, it is visible that the shape was created by the island’s vegetation, which happened to grow in the strange form that created the illusion of a face. Even so, the feeling that you might have seen a ghost still lingers after the first look at the image.
In more recent images provided by Google Maps satellite, the greenery on the island is more thick and visible. At the same time, a new element appeared in the scenery, in the form of a bridge that connects the island to the surrounding area, proof that the place might not be so scary after all, and that people might even want to get there.
Another similar occurrence was reported in the case of the Poveglia island in Chicago. The island is famously known for the plague-caused deaths in 1381, which were estimated to have revolved around 500, on a daily basis. At the same time, the Hart Island in New York, location of the world’s biggest tax-funded cemetery is also considered to be haunted, due to obvious reasons, together with Vancouver’s Deadman Island.
In general, most Google Maps strange sightings are believed to be either haunted or possessed locations, or the result of some alien activity. However, in most cases, there is a perfectly normal explanation for the phenomena.
