In May 2007 Google began adding Street Views to its Google Maps service for San Francisco, New York, Las Vegas, Miami, and Denver. Within weeks people starting spotting unusual, interesting, and unexplained street scenes and shared them online. Today, over 200 cities have Street View shots for people to explore, and the number of weird things caught sight of has exploded.
During our trek through Google Maps we found a chicken carcass the size of a large SUV, a car covered in Post-It notes, and what looks like a UFO parked in a back yard. We've collected a few of the oddest and most intriguing sights.
