These features range from 15 to 30 Meters across, and most have a common directionality, running North/South - East/West. The objects that comprise these surface patterns are heavily eroded and covered in a great amount of sediment. Below Are three sections of this area, including a close up view, and a context image for better interpretation. Upper section At first, one may see this area (above) as natural patterned terrain, But on closer view, you see this is NOT your average terrain. This area has many sharp angles and edges, all running in a uniform direction, similar to what you would see in a typical "neighborhood" setting. Also, looking at the close up view of a section of this terrain, you see no image artifacts or scan lines to potentially corrupt the image. WYSIWYG Middle section This is another large area a few Kilometers away. You can see the patterns are very similar, and there edges/sides, run in the same North/South - East/West direction...DISTINCTLY separate from the natural flow of the terrain. There are also more rectilinear formations sparsely scattered in between the Three large sections displayed on this page, as well as on several additional nearby images, (although not as clear). Lower section This section is slightly different, but only by the overall smaller size of the objects. Upper section - Extra enhancement "There is no natural explanation for what you are seeing" "These rectilinear objects, do NOT align with the (natural) flow of the terrain" The objects that form these patterns become less regular toward the top, perhaps caused by being buried deeper. Comparison of images Jersey City, New Jersey This is a comparison of These objects/buildings, and a section of Jersey City, New Jersey. This image allows you to quickly see and compare Urban geometry. There are several other MOC images within the proximity of this image, that may have similar rectilinear patterns with lesser degree of clarity, But it is important to note that these anomalous patterns are sparse, and can be easily confused with the natural terrain.
