Thread: Unusual grids in French Polynesia

    Default Unusual grids in French Polynesia

    Hello, I'm new here, so I apologize if this is a repeat post (I searched and came up with nothing on this).

    These coordinates reveal some strange grids, either it is a photo problem, or something else. Opinions or thoughts?

    It's an effect that's seen in a lot of places. You're looking at the circuitry in the CCD, the electronic device in the satellite that's taking the image. It shows up strongly in dark areas like this when the conditions are right for it.
