Is this a Canadian Nazca Line type image? Or a Cydonia type (“Face on Mars”) image? …. Or just a natural phenomena?
I’d supply the link, but Google Earth doesn’t have that capability. So, go to Google Earth, find 50 degrees 00’38.20″ N and 110 degrees 06’48.32″ W and tell me what you see? Zoom in to about 5,000 ft “Eye altitude” (the lower right side of your screen shows “Eye altitude”) for the best view.
(It’s in Alberta, Canada near the Saskatchewan border, northwest of the town of Walsh).
He looks like the Indian in the “Indian Head” penny to me.September 14, 2007 at 11:20 pm #28408
Good to see you, Roy. Hope you’ve been well.
I haven’t really used Google Earth. I downloaded it, but got a message when I tried to run it that it wasn’t a valid MS program. Weird. Oh well, I’ll try again later.
I was going to try and do a screen capture. Maybe somebody else can.September 14, 2007 at 11:20 pm #28420
I’ve been well. Hope you have too. These days, not having much to say or add to the conversation, I mostly lurk. But Saponitown is still my favorite site…. which I read at least once every other day.
Oh, by the way, a great big belated Happy Birthday to you. 😀
I was playing around with Google Earth just now and was able to e-mail myself an image of the “Nazca Lines” type Indian. However, I can’t post a link. But, if you (or anyone else) e-mail(s) me (via Saponitown e-mail) with your/their regular everyday e-mail address, I’ll forward the image to you/them.September 14, 2007 at 11:20 pm #28421
Someone placemarked it. It’s clearly visible as an Indian Head – complete with Head dress.September 14, 2007 at 11:20 pm #28426
Here’s a site to see the Indian head if you don’t have Google Earth.
The main photo is not as distinct as the lower right inset photo. Use the lower right inset photo to position and to zoom in.September 14, 2007 at 11:20 pm #28433
Thanks for the fun Caharie Roy! 🙂 I think this is more like the Madonna seen in food products or animals in clouds.
You got me going on the maps last night. I came across this great interactive map for our family research. You can enter your Surname and come up with oodles of place names of all variety bearing that name. The site is filled with many features, even under-ocean and will take awhile to explore.
I entered my Goldsberry. From the list I chose Goldsberry Cemetery in Lincoln Co. WV. Then Chose Google Maps and switched it to Satellite and in the image that comes up, in the shapes of the vegetation, different forms pop out to me that look like Aztec or Mayan Images engaged in battle.
Human images like this:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Huitzilopochtli Check it out.
Silliness aside this is a productive and useful tool for locating geographical sites associated with specific family, tribal, historic, river or place names etc. Entering “Blackfoot” brings up Dagsboro DE, Blackfoot Church IN and also a Blackfoot Mine in IN Pike Co. I don’t remember hearing of before. And the lesson is too much research can cause halucinations. (:eek:)September 14, 2007 at 11:20 pm #28435
Geez, we could cook up a whole new occult science finding ghosts on google earth. What fun.
Nice to know you’re lurking, Roy. Reading the site every other day is more than I’ve been managing in month’s past, but my life’s settling down, oops, don’t let me say that too loud or somebody will start acting up . . .
I guess I better troubleshoot my Google earth installation issue. I’d like to take a peak at Dagsboro, DE. Good find, Wachinika.September 14, 2007 at 11:20 pm #28438
…oops, don’t let me say that too loud or somebody will start acting up . . .:D 😀 😮
Mmm, we could organize virtual field trips for the group.September 14, 2007 at 11:20 pm #28443
Could anyone tell us how to hone in on the site of Fort Christiana with a satellite map?September 14, 2007 at 11:20 pm #28447
Ft Christiana = Google Earth = 36 degrees 42′ 52.28″ North by 77 degrees 52′ 21.61″ West (more of less).
Ft Christana is due south of Lawrenceville, VA (follow Rt. 46 south across the Meherrin River) and then go west on Fort Hill Road about two or three miles. The fort is on the north side of the road, about a quarter mile south of the Meherrin River. You can use the GNIS Database street map to find the roads, and then switch to the satellite map to see the actual topography.September 14, 2007 at 11:20 pm #28481
Those lines are not lines but rather where the earthhas eroded away causing small valley’s to form we call them “coullees”, I live not far from here, Black foot mine was posted by Lynella years ago.September 14, 2007 at 11:20 pm #28482
🙂 I finally found Lynella’s post http://www.saponitown.com/forum/showpost.php?p=10759&postcount=21
Googling today, it does seem to be a coal mine…very logical. I’ll have a peek some day.
