There is a sticky at the top of the forum, that asks you to search before you post new posts including google sat image type posts. There's a
problem here in that you cannot search for an image. I found near the top of the forum a thread specifically for the purpose of posting new image
results, I posted there thinking it was the correct thing to do, yet despite over 100 extra views on the thread no one responded.
So I am posting a new thread in the hope that 1 of 2 things might happen either...some kind mod will close my thread and direct me to where these have
been discussed already, or people might feel inclined to comment.
Near Roswell NM, I see some massive features stretching for miles. They look like isoceles triangles. But they don't look man made. i.e they are not
triangles drawn into the desert. I can only describe it as though a meteor shower struck at this location and as the meteors hit they hit at a shallow
angle to the Earths surface, so the effect was spread outwards from the impact point outwards in a triangular shape.....imagine what would happen if
you threw a bag of flour hard at the ground, it would burst and spread outwards and away from you. well these shapes I found are like that. **Edit
disclaimer Meteor fields are eliptical so it doesn't exactly mimick a meteor pattern***
Any ideas what these are? What is the scientific explanation for them? For they have to have been discussed by American Geologists...after all they
appear to be milllenia old features, and not some top secret military feature.
Google has deliberately bleached out all the colours at the greater zooms so that you cannot view these features at greater zooms, you can also not
see a lot of other stuff due to this bleaching.
However, it is still possible to see theses striations at greater zooms in some places like this for exaample
That should be a zoom in on a fenced off area, look at the lower right hand corner of the fence, very close by is a line in the dirt going roughly
"West by South West" to "East by North East". It can be seen that to the South of this line the land appears lighter than to the North,, I don't
know, but it seems to me to be lacking vegetation.
Now zoom out and you will see that this line is part of one of the larger of these striation features.
If anyone lives near there perhaps they could go and find out what is different to make this viewable from space, and also go to see some of the other
oddities. For example why are these striations sometimes having sharp angled corners? What are the dark patches we can see within the light areas?
Possibly where the land dips down into a hollow.
What is the name of this region?
Are there any University with important geography departments that I ca email or other institutions dealing with Geography who could be emailed?
Mapping companies perhaps.
Does anyone have knowledge of how to use other sat images such as "earth Explorer" to get other images of these. please link to other images of
