What a coincidence, lol. This is what I posted on the legendary Times site awhile ago and no one had a clue.
Hi all. Sorry if this is "old" news, but, I've never heard or seen these before. Just wondering if anyone else noticed these absolutly straight,
dark lines that run paralel to each other. I was google earth cruising the other night around Puma Punku and ended up going around the edge of Lake
Titicaca when I noticed the strangest thing just under the water line. You have to see it for yourself on google earth. Start at 16'24'24.41 S
68'52'04.42'W elev 12530 ft (note you need the degrees sign after the 16 and 68). Anyway, once you get there and get focused on the dark line, try
following and you will notice it is perfectly straight for miles. Next go to either left or right (about 450 yards) to see another line that runs
paralel on each side. I counted 6 on the Peruvian side and way over 30 on the Bolivian side, all the exact same distance apart. Another starter spot
is 16'28'31.50' S 68'53'54.81 W elev 12540 ft I have a feeling that there are way more of these lines in the lake but the resolution in google
earth is crappy once you get further out in the lake. For those that have dificulty with google co-ordinates, (lol, I do too) the ones I could see are
mostly in the bay beside Guaqui, left side all the way over to the point and beyond. . I'll put markers on them and saved them ib a facebook link,
but I'm just getting started here (rookie).
Anyway, please let me know what you think
they may be. Thanks. Here is another close location to start, Latitude 16°28'30.23"S Longitude 68°56'31.11"W elev 12546, or just google earth
search Comunidad Santa Rosa and zoom into the water level (just about) around the peninsula. They all run east /west about a 100ft apart, Hope that
helps...Oh ya, you will notice there is an eye alt indicator in the bottom right of google earth, you can see 2 lines on the same screen shot at eye
