'Colossus' spotted on Google Moon (Video)

Google Earth and bears an uncanny resemblance to what the ancient statue, "The Colossus of Rhodes", is thought to have looked like before it was felled into the harbor of the Greek island by a massive earthquake in 226 BC.

  What is it?

In the video posted here, published to YouTube on July 18, the unusual, shadowy figure was found by an intrepid anomaly hunter named Jasenko poring over the millions of images published by Google Earth that make up the Google Moon landscape.

Pinpointing a desolate stretch of the lunar surface, YouTuber wowforreeel zeroes in on the figure, orients it to a horizontal angle and zooms in on the increasingly odd shadow which looks like a statue of a man, giant legs spread apart and perhaps thousands of feet high.

Of course, the shadow might be explained in a number of ways, particularly as a trick of light or a camera lens glitch.

But, if those explanations are ruled out, it still leaves the question of what this object is, since it appears to be rising a great distance from the surface of the Moon.

The unusual figure recalls an earlier anomaly, known as "The Shard" and taken by a lunar orbiter back in 1967.

The quality of that image is nowhere near as fine and detailed as this one, but it caused serious speculation in its day, before NASA landed on the Moon, by those wondering what kind of object could have cast such a giant shadow.

This may be just another example of Pareidolia, what Wikipedia explains is "a psychological phenomenon involving a vague and random stimulus being perceived as significant. Common examples include seeing images of animals or faces in clouds, the Man in the Moon and hearing hidden messages on records when played in reverse."

Whatever this object is, it's certainly set apart from other anomalies found by paranormal researchers scanning Google Earth for strange phenomenon.

Google wireless carrier service could launch in 'Fiberhoods' within the U.S.

Google executives have been discussing plans for the company to offer its own wireless carrier service within the United States. As the Verge reports (April 4), sources reveal that Google had prior talks with existing U.S. wireless carriers about a possible partnership.

Google’s interests are moving in the direction of purchasing carrier network access to resell to customers, according to The Information. Unnamed sources suggest that Google is trying to situate a deal with a major U.S. carrier to become a mobile virtual network operator (MVNO). As an MVNO, Google would buy network access from the carrier for a wholesale price and then offer the mobile service to consumers.

Sources also said that Google is looking to provide wireless carrier service in areas where its Google Fiber high speed internet already exists. Reportedly, inside talks happening over at Google headquarters include running the idea by Verizon earlier this year. In 2013, Google allegedly talked to Sprint before the wireless carrier was acquired by Softbank.

While Google Fiber networks are set up in Kansas City, Mo. and Provo, Utah, Google hopes to broaden its presence. Currently on the horizon is an expansion to Austin, Texas with placement in Atlanta, Portland, Ore., San Jose, Calif. and other cities to follow in the future.

If everything goes according to plans, Google’s wireless service could mean savings for potential customers. It’s likely that a Google Wireless/Google Fiber package deal would offer wireless smartphone, TV and internet for a competitive price. For example, Verizon offers its customers savings for bundling their Verizon Wireless service with Verizon FiOS for internet, TV and home phone.

The Information speculates that Google may want to rely on a wireless carrier solely when its Fiber network Wi-Fi access points are not available or up to par. Similarly, to minimize network congestion, AT&T implements the method of transferring network users to Wi-Fi hotspots.

If Google is seeking to team up with a wireless carrier on this project, Verizon with its nationwide coverage may be the best option.
