African Nasca?

Unexplained Sites Discovered in Africa

Everyone knows about so called Nasca Lines.

The high desert of Peru holds one of the most mystifying monuments of the known world—the massive-scale geoglyphs known as the Nasca Lines. Ranging from geometric patterns to “drawings” of different animals and stylized human-like forms. The ancient lines can only be truly taken in, their forms discerned, from high in the air, leaving generations mystified as to how these precise works could’ve been completedlong before the documented invention of human flight. Are the lines signs left by an alien race? Landing strips for UFOs? Relics of a ancient people far more advanced then we could imagine and capable of human flight?

It turns out that there are many mysterious locations in Africa that call for explanation. In this article we present eclectic selection of  satellite photos (Google Earth) of many such places. Google Earth images contain location information in bottom right corner. Note: some of these sites are likely ancient, others might be modern (perhaps military installations?). 

Please send us your comments (especially if you can identify specific location as ancient or modern) and locations of other interesting sites you know about.

This strange feature (above) is located in Africa.
What makes it intriguing is that it resembles Valles Marineris on Mars (below).

MarsCanyon1

The “Grand Canyon of Mars” Valles Marineris that slices across the Red Planet near its equator, could this odd looking canyon caused by a ancient stellar super-weapon?

Valles Marineris is a system of canyons that runs along the Martian surface east of the Tharsis region. At more than 4,000 km (2,500 mi) long, 200 km (120 mi) wide and up to 7 km (23,000 ft) deep, the Valles Marineris rift system is one of the larger canyons of the Solar System, surpassed only by the rift valleys of Earth and (in length only) by Baltis Vallis on Venus.

Valles Marineris is located along the equator of Mars, on the east side of the Tharsis Bulge, and stretches for nearly a quarter of the planet’s circumference. It has been recently suggested that Valles Marineris is a large tectonic “crack” in the Martian crust. Most researchers agree that this formed as the crust thickened in the Tharsis region to the west, and was subsequently widened by erosion. However, near the eastern flanks of the rift there appear to be some channels that may have been formed by water or carbon dioxide.

Made by Nature: Giant Causeway

The Giant’s Causeway  is an area of about 40,000 interlocking basalt columns, the result of an ancient volcanic eruption.
It is located in County Antrim on the northeast coast of Northern Ireland, about three miles (4.8 km) northeast of the town of Bushmills. It was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1986, and a National Nature Reserve in 1987 by the Department of the Environment for Northern Ireland. In a 2005 poll of Radio Times readers, the Giant’s Causeway was named as the fourth greatest natural wonder in the United Kingdom. The tops of the columns form stepping stones that lead from the cliff foot and disappear under the sea. Most of the columns are hexagonal, although there are also some with four, five, seven or eight sides. The tallest are about 12 metres (39 ft) high, and the solidified lava in the cliffs is 28 metres thick in places.

Made by Nature: African Dunes

In physical geography, a dune is a hill of sand built either by wind or water flow. Dunes occur in different forms and sizes, formed by interaction with the flow of air or water. Most kinds of dunes are longer on the windward side where the sand is pushed up the dune and have a shorter “slip face” in the lee of the wind. The valley or trough between dunes is called a slack. A “dune field” is an area covered by extensive sand dunes. Large dune fields are known as ergs. Although the most widely distributed dunes are those associated with coastal regions, the largest complexes of dunes are found inland in dry regions and associated with ancient lake or sea beds.
Dunes also form under the action of water flow (alluvial processes), and on sand or gravel beds of rivers, estuaries and the sea-bed.

Here is a link to a video showing some of what remains of ancient irrigation around the Okavango delta in South Africa.

The last African Desert photos are the Namibia Desert and its one of the few places that regularly gets dew from clouds from the ocean. It goes thru cycles of freezing temps and unrelenting heat, that leave a marked surface that looks strange when compared to other deserts. There are also ‘fairy rings’ that appear in one strip of this desert, looking like different sized circles that cover the surface. These are created by a desert termite that dwells beneath the surface.

The unique system of moisture creates a true living desert that is not found anywhere else in the world.

I tend to agree with Starheater. While I know Adrianne is right, snowflakes and living organisms do have clear, intricate designs, the causeways just seem a little too stacked,ordered, and shaped to have been the solely the result of an eruption. Fantastic pictures though. I appreciate them.

I agree with Adrianne – and let’s not forget about crystals (perfect geometric shapes made by nature).

Some of these geoglyphs seem to be ancient remnants of a previous civilization. The rectangular formations are found underwater, on the Moon, and on Mars. Non-rectilinear formations are found in those places, too. South Africa has some huge round ruins. The implications are clear, I think: a previous high civilization, capable of interplanetary travel, was wiped out by the Cataclysm (“Great Flood”). This probably happened about twelve-thousand years ago.

Some of the grid-like formations are near active roads and are, I believe, military and top-secret installations, possibly having to do with the HAARP scalar systems and antenna-arrays.

For my part, I dont think the the “Causeway” is a natural formation. Those who had say this statement have make a really quick reasonning. There is nothing in nature that could have cauve octogonal shape to appear, beside, why in the border of the land, why not in the middle? The Nature tend to make round shape, or inegal structure.
I know that some of you may be surprise by my statement, but the logic is there, if we know Nature, we know that she doesn’t make square trees or telephone post. Beside this fact of creating octogonal form, we have multiface form of 12 facets, no way, I dont believe the official statement.
There are more to consider, all the place find in the world that have huge construction, we found a desire to complicate the structure like if they were in concurating state of mind. One race have built the Pyramids of Giza, the other races have said: “Ah, we can do better”, this is what I think about those forms, nothing to do about Nature or E.T., think about it a while, and I’m sure that you’ll be far to believe the official theorie. God Bless

Nature does indeed have such shapes.Try looking at microscopic life and snowflakes for example.

The Causway was formed in exactly the same was a the Devil’s Tower in Wyoming in USA http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Devils_Tower

which is far from any coast, and the rock “logs” used to construct the man-made islands of Nan Madol in the Pacific. http://www.environmentalgraffiti.com/cities/news-ancient-stone-city-nan-madol

When basalt lava cool at the right speed, it fractures like that, no matter where on Earth it happened to be deposited.
