Google's Logo today is - Crop Circles. Why? I got no idea. Take a look at Google's tweet (image shown at the end of this post). This Tweet's status
has a Latitude/Logitude of 51.327629, -0.5616088 along with a twitpic image which when clicked takes you to the Google Logo Image. Mashable
The latitude and longitude that were tweeted out correspond to Surrey, England, where one enterprising soul noticed a “flying saucer” sighting by a family car on the 15th, back in 1985.
And now my finding: I found Latitude/Longitude in the tweet refers to Horsell, England (Google Maps
). The Wikipedia
entry for Horsell, England states
Horsell in Surrey is an ancient (pre-Domesday Book) village nearby to the more modern 19th. century Woking, probably best known because of its association with the story The War of the Worlds, written by H.G. Wells. (The War of the Worlds (1898) is a science fiction novel by H. G. Wells describing an invasion of late Victorian England by Martians equipped with advanced weaponry. It is a seminal depiction of an alien invasion of Earth.)
