OBSERVATIONS

Polygon-shaped features that are delineated by reasonably detectable edges. Four features lay to the north of the image (A-D), and five more features lay 5 km further to the south (E-I).

POTENTIAL FOR AN ARTIFICIAL STRUCTURE

1. MEASUREMENTS - Most of these features display some similar measurements to each other, being either approx. 625 metres (2,050 ft.) along some of their sides, or twice that length at approx. 1,250 metres (4,100 ft.), which might suggest a deliberate relationship 2. PROXIMITY - Both groups of these features, lay only 5-6 km (3-4 miles) apart.

COMMON EXPLANATION

Geological features such as remnant massifs and mesa's.
