So is this Google Maps anomaly really Jesus and Mary?

Some claim it so, but others reckon the camera on one of the global map making cars suffered a glitch.

Bubble News, which loves a conspiracy theory, says: “The startling image was snapped by Google as its imaging vehicle drove along the A5 highway near Walensee, Switzerland.

“The dramatic, mountainous landscape is enhanced by a steel-grey, storm cloud laden sky. Looming from the cloudscape appear two images, one black, the other a mix of white and pink, which bear an uncanny similarity to figures depicted in religious paintings for centuries.

“The smaller figure appears to be cloaked in a flowing gown, hands held in prayer and head bowed.

“The other spectre is shrouded in black but seemingly looking forward.

The ghostly figures do bear a resemblance to how classic depictions of Mother Mary and Jesus Christ have been imagined and drawn.

Is it just a coincidence? Or is something else going on here?

True believers don’t need to be convinced, while others will say it’s just a glitch in the imaging software.

Either way, it’s one of the spookiest, or most awe-inspiring results ever found on Google Earth.”
