Submission + - Possible Egyptian Pyramids Found via Google Earth

x_IamSpartacus_x writes: In an article being carried by discovery.com, Two possible pyramid complexes might have been found in Egypt, according to a Google Earth satellite imagery survey. Located about 90 miles apart, "the sites contain unusual grouping of mounds with intriguing features and orientations" said satellite archaeology researcher Angela Micol of Maiden, N.C. According to Micol, both sites have been verified as undiscovered by Egyptologist and pyramid expert Nabil Selim, whose findings include the pyramid called Sinki at Abydos and the Dry Moat surrounding the Step pyramid complex at Saqqara. The researcher has previously located several possible archaeological sites with Google Earth, including a potential underwater city off the coast of the Yucatan peninsula. The sites have been sent to Egyptologists and researchers for further investigation and "ground truthing," she said.
