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. Martin Shough Listen to 'Strange Days...
