A reddit user shared an interesting find on Google Maps Street View. If you go to the point: 30.744344, -88.103524, it returns a location along Interstate 65 in Alabama. In the shoulder there is a mysterious orange blob.

If you zoom in, you see some very weird imagery. Here are a couple different angles:

This is when you rotate to look up:

It’s possible that the object is a cone or something that somehow hit or covered the camera lens. We’ve been unable to confirm.

Google did clarify some Donkey-related imagery recently. Of course, there is no apparent animal-killing PR diaster here.

    I looked into it. The orange stuff started at:

    So there you have it.
