The image of an alleged Bigfoot found on Google’s satellite mapping service has been dividing opinion this week.
The snapshot, which was originally posted up on Reddit, appears to show a large humanoid figure walking around in the Colorado wilderness, but despite claims that it represents evidence of Bigfoot, doubts have been cast over whether this is even a picture of a creature at all.
“Is it a bear? A puddle? A hiker without gear?” the original caption reads. “Impossible to say for certain but the darker areas of the subject align with the shadows of other objects nearby.”
“Measures around 7-7.5 feet. Appears hunched over. Subject does not appear on other satellite images from different years which might imply that subject is mobile or not stationary object.”
The precise co-ordinates are believed to be 38°16’24” N. 108°08’32.
But is this really a Bigfoot or is something else going on ?
Perhaps the biggest issue with this picture is that, considering that it has been taken from directly above, the angle seems to be wrong – how is it that we can see it’s supposed feet and arms ?
Also, if this was an animal, it would be enormous – much larger than 7.5ft. An individual person will typically appear as little more than a small blurry dot on Google Maps.
In all likelihood, this is simply a body of water that just happens to resemble the shape of a Bigfoot.
