Hey, I was just messing around on google maps and I came across some weird 'structures' in the sands in Saudi Arabia.
Does anyone have any idea what these are?
Aram, Iram, Irum, Irem, Erum, or the City of the tent poles is a lost city (or perhaps tribe) mentioned in the Quran.

Check the Gallery/Google Earth Community checkbox on the lower left to see if anyone has tagged them.
ETA: Sorry, that's when using Google Earth. I'd install that and fire it up to take a look that way. Chances are good that someone has tagged them with a placemark. Often times you'll have to click on the tag and read the discussions about what they are.
I see that quite a bit, you'll see a placemark with the question "What are all these strange dots on the prairie in Wyoming?" Then some knowledgeable person will answer back "Prairie Dogs"...edit on 1-12-2013 by sageturkey because: Add

Great, thanks! Will keep checking that site!
I don't know who made them, but whoever it was, sure have a crooked eye in their heads.
