There was an unidentified floating object spotted outside AT&T Park on Friday night.
The boat (?) was seen zipping through McCovey Cove lit up like a float in the Main Street Electrical Parade. While no one seemed to know what exactly the egg-shaped object was at first, Yahoo! Sports solved the mystery.
Mark Townsend surfaced an article from the San Francisco Chronicle from July 4 explaining what everyone was so confused about Friday night. It turns out it was a “Bubbleboat,” designed by artist Eric Staller, who “creates what he likes to call ‘urban UFO’s,’ which are conceptual works meant to amaze, perplex and mystify spectators.” Job well done, Eric.
