Angela Micol: Satellite Archeaology, Uncovering Earth’s Ancient Past
Mysterious, pyramid-like structures spotted in the Egyptian desert by an amateur satellite archaeologist Angela Micol might be long-lost pyramids after all, according to a new investigation into the enigmatic mounds.
Angela Micol, who last year found the structures using Google Earth 5,000 miles away in North Carolina, says puzzling features have been uncovered during a preliminary ground proofing expedition, revealing cavities and shafts.
First reported by Discovery News, her claim gained widespread media attention and much criticism. Authoritative geologists and geo-archaeologists were largely skeptical and dismissed what Micol called “Google Earth anomalies” as windswept natural rock formations — buttes quite common in the Egyptian desert.
Micol launched Google Earth Anomalies in the early 2000’s and Google Earth Anomalies, an active Facebook page.
In this program we’ll discover the importance of satellite imagery in discovering Earth forgotten past, and how each of us can view parts of Earth that provide new understanding for how our ancestors lived.
