    Default What is this?

    This is something I have been looking at on Google Earth and I can not figure out what it is. I is very close to my section of the Appalachian Trail that I maintain. If some of you have Google earth installed on your computer you can go to these coordinates and look at it or open the attached file.

    I think it is a flat area at the top of Wyman Moutain. The color is probably decieving, and shows up black because of the low resolution that Google uses in rural areas. We should investigate just to be sure, want to go?

    I don't know about that. I know that there are other flat spots (and not far from it) in this area that are not showing up like this one.

    It looks like I will have to make a trip up this way in investigate when the snow goes away.

    If the sat shot was early spring, I'd say maybe a big vernal pool, goes away before most of the hikers get to that area, or could have been a lightning strike. It looks like there are 3-4 rocks in it???

    You may have better luck asking on the Google Earth forums, if you can figure out where! I found this site that has a lot of interesting error types, but did not see one that explains a round spot like the one you found. http://bbs.keyhole.com/ubb/showthrea.../330340/page/0

    Wasn't there some UFO sightings in western Maine a few weeks back . . . coincidentally enough Hiram was absent from these Boards for a while . . . alien abduction, mayhaps?

    I'm going to have to ask this discussion to stop right here, no further investigation is required, anyone seeking further inquiry will be taken care of properly.....
