Google Earth renders a 3D representation of Earth that is primarily based on satellite imagery.
The application, which has gained popularity since its release in 20011, can now fully map our planet by superimposing satellite images, aerial photography, and GIS data onto a 3D globe.
It allows users to see cities, roads, lanes, bylanes, and various other landscapes from multiple angles.
The application allows a user to find addresses and coordinates using a mouse or a touch device. Google Earth is compatible with smartphones, laptops, desktops, and tablets.
As its functionality is not too different from Google Maps, it too shows results sometimes that is hard to fathom.
We all know that Google Maps throw up bizarre images and signs from time to time. Many of these have gone viral and become stories on social media.
From strange signboards to spooky locations, Google Maps has produced images that have taken millions by surprise.
Google Earth does the same thing. It is an ideal place to find some of the strangest places on our planet. And you can do that comfortably from your home without any payments.
Why are we talking about creepy discoveries on Google Earth? That's because some Manchester residents were baffled to discover 'phantom' buildings in their city.
A Twitter user named Kimberly shared an image from the application and wrote: "What the f*** are these weird phantom buildings on Google Maps. They're just clipping into other buildings. They're not real. WTF,"
Many users commented saying it was probably a glitch on the app. However, some users speculated it may have been evidence of 'Russian hacking' or a portal to a different place.
It's not the only creepy thing that Google Earth has shown in the recent past. The app has actually produced a long line of bizarre things.
There is a photo that shows a submerged car, that actually helped in solving a case that baffled police for more than 20 years, according to a Mirror report.
