It certainly looks like the classic UFO-something from the 50s
or 60s.

If this is from Google Earth then it must have been generated by
someone on their staff, huh?

Since there must be millions of shots in the Google Earth
mosaic, inserting a hoax by a staffer would be have low odds of
being noticed by someone in the general public. So the first
thing to do is find who 'outed' this photo in the first place.
Tall order of course.

Perhaps an email to Google asking them why they are inserting
these things into their scenarios might be in order.
