​OBSERVATIONS

This is a remarkable feature which as the discoverer justifiably states, "Were this found anywhere on Earth we'd surely be digging into it." If other anomalous features in the same area could be identified, this would provide corroborative support that we may indeed be looking at an artificial construction.

POTENTIAL FOR AN ARTIFICIAL STRUCTURE

The pronounced tetrahedral shape. Similarity in base size with the great Pyramid at Giza (which is 230 m / 756 ft), suggesting perhaps a prehistoric cultural connection.

COMMON EXPLANATION

A hill sculpted by erosive winds.
