Guy Jumping from Roof?

Recently someone posted this placemark showing what looks like a guy standing near the edge of a roof on a building near Tokyo, Japan. I say “looks like” because this obviously can’t be a man as he would be 50 or 60 feet tall according to my measurement estimate. It really is a weird shot though, and quite amusing when you realize its not real.
This is some kind of suggested visual anomaly and a by-product of a photo resoution problem. You may not see a man in the picture if it wasn’t suggested to you first. I remember when NASA scientists thought they had found a “face” on the surface of mars in the 1980s. A later mission took a higher resoultion picture and you could tell it was just a product of rocks and shadows. But, the original picture certainly seemed very much like a human face. Here’s a link to a face on Mars story.

  1. By the way, I showed this to my wife a few minutes ago and she couldn’t see it as a guy at all. She just sees a smokestack. I was laughing as I tried to show her how it looks like a guy, but she couldn’t see it.
    I know a bunch of people saw this as a guy as well at the Google Earth Forums. So, it’s not just me and the original poster.
