It's there, all right. But it's inside a ground-level view
panorama uploaded by a user named Vasily Nikitenko. It's not an
"official" GE image. The colouration, lighting and modelling
don't look too convincing to me, a bit plasticised like a CGR
rendering.  And there are about 20 tourists, probably with as
many cameras, visible in the shot, all with a clear view. Nobody
else seems to be noticing anything.

I wondered if it might be a regular joke "signature" so I
checked a couple of Vasily's other panoramas, without finding
any more UFOs yet.

There's no information on Mr Nikitenko and a Google search is no
particular help.

Presumably a fake, but fun.
