arat that what you call an ufo seems to be dirt on the lens of the satellite camera.you can find this also in los angeles.but the other two files realy realy look like ufos.especially because of the shadows it looks like they would fly.i have no explanation for this :shock:

e/ i think i have a solution for the 2 ufos in helsinki: http://www.googleearthhacks.com/dlfile3677/watertower-looks-like-ufo.htm :cool:

:whoa: I know, Raimios, thats why i referred to my "UFO" in quotation marks..

Unfortunately, the objects look close enough to ground that it could just be a cylindrical watertower casting a shadow.. but, as I said before..

I want to believe :D

They look like municiple water tanks to me. There's one not too disimilar near
me in Toronto, it looks just about the same.

Maybe a Radioteleskope or a big parabolic antenna. (Ufo1)

Ufo1 is a big Parabol Antenna I'd say. I you zoom in very close, you can even make out the thing that points upwards from the Antenna. Sorry, I don't know how it's named in english :slant:

For Ufo2, I'm not sure if its really flying. The 'Shadow' doesnt fit and the morphology must be quit funny to form such an shape from a round object :)
I'd rather say thats a field of some sort (perhaps for some sport) and some water or other dark thingi.

Both are water tanks for public use.

These are high constructions, shaped as a cone placed upside-down on a cylinder.

The cone contains the water reserve, the height of the structure and the weight of water provide the pressure for distribution in the pipelines and to reach the higher stores of the buildings, whithout the need of pumping plants.
