<<On September 5th, 2009, Google tweeted out "1.12.12 25.15.21.18 15 1.18.5 2.5.12.15.14.7 20.15 21.19", a cipher for "all your 'O' are belong to us". The cipher was based on a straight alpha-numeric transliteration, wherein 1=a, 2=b, 3=c, etc., Google coincided this tweet with a www.google.com homepage graphic in which a UFO is abducting the second 'O' in Google. Clicking on the Google homepage graphic rendered search results for "unexplained phenomenon">>

I think it's related to the "Exeter Incident" to indeed, there are not any other things I can find related to the doodle. I don't think its Voyager 1. A Triforce would be nice in the logo :-), another "unexplained phenomenon".

Maybe it's just me, but... They put out a new themed logo. Normally, when you hover over it with your mouse, there is an explanation. In this case, there is not. The phenomenon is the new themed logo, which is unexplained, hence the "unexplained phenomenon." Sounds like a bit of ironic fun to me...

It is weird that they dont tell us what it is when you hover over it with your mouse .Its almost like they want us to go and research about unexplained phenomenons.

hello Dears, i wish to put my ideas if can. Do not want disturb anyone or confirm nothing.
In different country/sites/forum about this, i seen different possible relations, some with no binds with UFO in the image.
#) Image+Phrase i can think also like the UFO is the full knowledge for us. (in this case i mean the O like a symbol, not a letter. "O" = knowledge / perfect complete symbol / also our galaxy). Just doubts.

The words: A L L Y O U R O A R E B E L O N G T O U S
#)Could mean: As we had understood ourselves some truth on "unexplained phenomenons"; maybe like other people suggested, google got some great information or important knowledges wan't tell us.
Or could be also a marketing test. (you can use the googe logo for sales or proper research interests. Great thing). And think... yt/google.... they know all about us and ours countries(logosigned :P) much better than us. Eheh

One bad deduction:
So try with "O" another word. Like: "All Your *Owns* Are Belong To Us". This could have a great sense. Read well. Asd.

Last details:
Remember as "BELONG TO" means HAVE/OWN.
YT(Google Co.) in Italy censure/ban CLEAREST movies on ufos, banks, religions, foreign relations, nwo, internal affairs and many similar, with the reason/complaint to user of: "psychical war". This for governative pressure and together interests.
Hope just nothing bad happen, anyway we can't stop this fucking world.

I think one user hit it right on the head... To commemorate the anniversery of one "Unexplained Phenomenon" (The Exeter Incident), Google themselves created yet another "Unexplained Phenomenon".

The logo... In and of itself... Is an unexplained phenomenon... Very clever there Google! ;)

The twitter message and reference to the ill-fated video game translation was a nice twist too...

They probably just forgot the alt tag for the Exeter Incident, and just don't want to admit it now, so they'll pretend they wanted to see if people would try to figure out the unexplained phenomenon of why there's no alt tag explaining the graphic. To the 'o' therory, the image shows them stealing a letter 'o', but doesn't the word Google refer to a number with many zeros? Maybe it's "All your zeros belong to us....."

We can rule out the anniversary of the Exeter Incident, because that happened on 3rd September (not 5th September) although as Tim Howland suggests they may be commemorating today's festival.

Or are they readying us for a new results page design without all the extra O's?

They could be doing this as a marketing technique to get attention on them. I've recently been seeing the Bing advertisements and, as usual, Microsoft has done a great job of marketing. It was a very convincing ad. I'm really hoping Microsoft doesn't take over the monopoly in this area now. Google is the best.

I took a look at google.ca's and google.jp's image properties and got the above result. Google.jp does not have the 'unexplained phenomenon' logo. The alternate text/alt tag is missing, and yes I know, this has been pointed out before. Either Google was too lazy, forgot, or left out the alt tag on purpose. I go with the latter case.

Google and the UFO?

Interestingly, I have been doing a lot of research the past few days on this topic of UFO, Annunaki, etc. and I chuckled to myself that it was just the sychronization of the universe. A tell-tale sign of the matrix sort.

EVEN MORE INTERESTING IS: During the past 4 nights I have observed a "wobbling star" in the sky. The same "star" that shines brightest, near the moon.

Seriously, I live in Tampa Florida. Please walk outside and see if you see this for yourself.

I have captured it on digital film, without a flash and you can clearly see eratic movement patterns. I have over 35 pictures posted, including some zoomed in, in which the wobbling motion is highly visible. Also,included are contrast shots including stationary buildings and the moon for a point of refrence.

WHAT ARE YALL'S THOUGHTS ON THIS? The bright star, near the moon, ... it's moving! (though mostly stationary) but absolutely moving unlike anything of OUR technology!!!

It's a Joke. It's a spoof on the Japanese video game called Zero Wing. When the flash animation was translated from Japanese to English it came out as All your base are belong to us. The number code game answer that Google posted is All Your O are Belong to us.Go to Wikipedia and put All your Base are Belong to us in the search box.The Google logo shows the O in Google being tansported into the UFO as a joke.

This is a nice one, maybe related to the upcoming birthday of Google.

<<Official statement just came in from Google, which isn’t that helpful:
“We consider the second ‘o’ critical to user recognition of our brand and pronunciation of our name. We are actively looking into the mysterious tweet that has appeared on the Google twitter stream and the disappearance of the “o” on the Google homepage. We hope to have an update in the coming weeks.”>>
