London: Two mysterious and identical UFOs almost flying 1,000 miles apart have been observed on Google Maps.
The red orb-like shapes are visible to all users of the application online at Jacksonville in Texas and at the Sky City Casino Hotel on 32 Indian Service Route 30, Acoma Pueblo in New Mexico.
The images have raised questions as to what they are and how they were photographed there in the first place.
At both locations the same object appears in the sky hovering over the street and was first pointed out to ABC News affiliate KLTV in East Texas by Andrea Dover who noticed the first UFO while using Google Maps to get directions, according to the Daily Mail.
Just enter Jacksonville, Texas, into the search bar and go to street view, pan around and you can see the Texan UFO, the paper said.
No one has been able to explain the image and the residents of both towns are also clueless as to what the glowing red flying saucer could be.
The object that is seen in the Texas Google Map image was shot right by the Landmark building at the 69 and 79 intersection, near to Sadler’s Restaurant and right across the street from a Taco Bell restaurant.
The most popular theory is that the orbs may be sun glare from the camera or the reflected arches of a McDonald’s restaurant.
