Random Security Camera on Spaceship Earth Disappears

Last month, many Guests noticed a random security camera appear on the top of Spaceship Earth at EPCOT. Though we are unsure of why this camera was placed there, it looks like the purpose is no longer needed as the security camera is now gone from the top of Spaceship Earth.

In this thread of Tweets from bioreconsruct, you can not only see where the security camera was placed, but also that the camera has since disappeared.

In the first Tweet from August, bioireconstruct shared:

A common monorail photo location. Not too noticeable is new security camera on top of Spaceship Earth.

Now, the security camera is now missing from Spaceship Earth as bioreconstruct shared a new photo to Twitter writing:

Security camera no longer on top of Spaceship Earth.

We are still unsure of why this security camera was placed on top of Spaceship Earth, though some were speculating that it was to help program the new lights on Spaceship Earth in real time.

If you have never been on Spaceship Earth, Disney World describes this attraction as:

Witness the landmark moments of amazing innovation that made today’s spectacular communications technology possible.

Travel back to the dawn of humanity, when early man painted on cave walls. Watch new ideas spread like wildfire with the invention of Gutenberg’s printing press. The wheels of time turn ever faster as we enter the modern age of media, from newspapers announcing the end of the Civil War to the televised broadcast of the moon landing—and beyond.

All of these great moments are brought vividly to life using elaborate sets and advanced Audio-Animatronics figures during this inspirational, 16-minute, Omnimover-style attraction.
