The first site is in north of Lake Qarun in a place where I have been several times. It is probably a construction linked to the Dimei temple (on the right), more "Roman/Greek" than anything Egyptian. Also could have been underwater at Egyptian times...
On last Google sat picture, I can see big piles of sand around; effraid that somebody already digged... There is also a black mark... Not good
This is such a great discovery!! I can't wait to find out more about it.
Well, whatever it is, somebody already opened the poor site up in 2011 - cut right through it! *And* somebody started digging a new hole to the north.
This is wonderful. I will be very interested to see how this turns out. Keep up the good work!
What an amazing discovery, I look forward to reading and hearing about this significant find. The more we know about the past, the more we can discover about our future!!
Very well written article...so very interesting. Makes me wonder how many thousands of discoveries have yet to be found. Indiana Jones never had it so good. Go Find It!
The first site looks different on a picture from 2012, taken by GeoEye (visible via Google Maps). Piles of sand are visible - this site has been visited recently, if not in the last years since 2008. I wonder what was the result?
Good luck trying to get the Egyptian government to do anything remotely 'scientific' now that they've had their 'Arab Spring', aside from of course plotting the destruction of Israel..
I currently live in Cairo -- been to this area many many times. If someone would provide the coordinates, I will provide land pictures of these sites. Some that I have visited before are man made - mud bricked lined storage(?) bins using natural land masses. Interesting to say the least!!
Well, whatever it is there is a tremendous mount of detail in the first image. One of the images in the lower left corner clearly has some kind of square structure side-by-side, which in turn does not look nature to me. Looks like a great find to me even if it turns out to be nothing.
"It seems that Angela Micol is one of the so-called 'pyridiots' who see pyramids everywhere," said James Harrell, professor emeritus of archaeological geology at the University of Toledo and a leading expert on the archaeological geology of ancient Egypt. "Her Dimai and Abu Sidhum 'pyramids' are examples of natural rock formations that might be mistaken for archaeological features provided one is unburdened by any knowledge of archaeology or geology. In other words, her pyramids are just wishful thinking by an ignorant observer with an overactive imagination."
Even if Old Man Harrell is "correct" there's no reason to be insulting about it.
I just read the story on Fox News.
Very interesting blog you have here...
I agree with the other comment. Harrell made himself look like a know-it-all, pompous ass.
I want to congratulate you on your discoveries but I caution you that the very large triangular smooth shape appears to be in a crash type crater?
The only thing on earth resembling it is located on USAF //NASA x15 exp. plane film when the plane was near space above earth...objects were seen going by shaped like the smooth 3 pointed object...i wish you the best...
derr= google derr ufo for more info on my own work....my regrets if you find this letter offensive about the work you did ...
That so exiting !!! I impress that we can found pyramide at this time.
I want to know more about this storie !!
They say they are just buttes. However, take the three little ones and overlay them with a star map of Orion's sword and they are almost perfectly aligned. Some might be buttes but these three are rather compelling.
If this is true, along with the fact that Islamic clerics have called on Egypt to destroy the Great Pyramids, my suggestions would be to keep the data to yourself until sanity returns to Egypt.
Amazing, happy to help, as you say, get the sites officially secured first. do these sites line up with the meridians as the other pyramids are "supposed to" ??
Google Earth is exciting. When I have been Satallite researching the Pyrimid areas, I have been searching for ancient canal system to the larger Pyrimids. I have a theory on how the structures were constructed. What I need to find near them is a large area able to contain water as a lake. Any "discoveries you or others have found would be helpful. Thanks
I myself, have used tons of time and money to become a Master of Science. It seem to me, that - unfortunately - many "Specialists" and "Scientists" with years of work behind them (and maybe books) feel very anxious about any "non educated person" to - in this case - find something THEY should have been finding. "Oh shit, with all my education, and all money spent, WHY ON EARTH did'nt I get the idea to use Google Earth...". So, only thing to do, is try to miscredit the sinner.
Maybe the doctor have been writing several books that suddently becomes "rubbish", just because some "non educated person" shows with luck, that the things are different from what the books says. There's money on the stake here....!
Maybe the "pyramids" are "nothing"! Maybe they are..... pyramids!
But until we have a proof for anything, everyone must speak to each other with respect - educated or not!
I'm kinda going with the square shape theroy. A Foundation of any pyramid, is now , & has always been a square.
At the moment, Mars takes a back seat..
The image of the structure with what looks like a fissure cutting through it, appears to me to have a ramp or similar construct leading up its southwest face.
I noticed when I was looking at the same area on Bing maps, that a road appears to run right past the largest of the sturtures in the cluster. It travels northeast toward the vicinity of Cairo. It appears to cut through landforms or vice versa. If the path is followed southwest it passes a coffin-shaped area that looks interesting.
I am amazed that we are still discovering planet earth, excellent work.
The layout and orientation of the pyramid complex (if it is indeed that) appears to be similar to that of Teotihuacan. If that is a staircase or ramp running up the southwest face of the pyramid, it is the equvalent of the Pyramid of the Moon in terms of layout. I had difficulty getting an accurate angle, but it is within a few degrees of the 15.5 degrees off north seen at Teotihuacan. Not sure what to make of the smaller structures in the complex, but they seem to line up with the larger pyramid.
I failed to mention that the road I spoke of in my earlier posts does not appear on the Bing maps aerial image layer, just on the bird's eye view layer.
