Yeah, strange things can be found in the desert....
i have no idee what that is!
Welcome to GE, minel72!Originally Posted by minel72
That has to be the strangest object for a first poster. Well done!!
May I ask why you were looking there?
Think about posting your find on Files, for wider coverage.
i am from germany. (GDR hihihi)
i speak and write not good english.
i search in this aerea, while the picture in higher resolution.
es war der reine zufall das ich dieses ding im sand gefunden habe.
es sieht aus wie ein riesiger bleistift der im sand liegt.
oder es ist ein UFO, crashed in the sand of algeria.
by and good day minel
definitly the strangest object i have ever seen in GE.
From this angle it looks like a meteorite crashed it to earth.
Had to be fairly new one when the picture is taken.
Otherwise, sand would cover the hole when blown by the wind.
They should name it after you...
I'd rather be ridin' my HOG...
look at the shadow of this crazy thing.
the tip(spitze) having no contact with the sand.
...and the mail to nasa is written.

A sand storm has gone over this place with the strange shape in the sand and blown sand down a hack in the side and so this was made.
If you look up NE you see another square shaped placelike this with a hack in the side.
Okay, Here's my opinion:
I think it was a flying(Airborne) object that hit the sand whilst in motion from the North-East, It then got stuck in the sand for a few days(or maybe even hours if there was a strong wind) the sand then covered the object.
That's about all I can say, I don't know what the object is but I tend to think it was either a Missile, or a(and this is the Wierd theory) alien ship.
Anyway hopefuly NASA will come back to you.
did anybody noticed the rectangle around it?
Or the roads and buildings nearby?
I'm sorry to break your dreams, but I think humans are responsibles for this strange shape!
Ummm, I hate to burst you bubble here guys. sladys and Rank both pointed this out already.
It's simple, I'm not an arenologist, but it is just a ripple created in the sand, well in thes case, a wave size. The sun is at an angle in the picture so it casts a heavy shadow over it, that's all.
Remember what movie these are from? I bet you don't!
"You do well in school?"---"Yeah"---"Good, so did I, that's what they call a paradox"
"How's your mother?"---"Oh... I'm afraid she's on her way out."---"We all are. Act accordingly."
Looks like alot of oil rigs have been around there. To the NE it looks as if one is still active. Could be some left over equipment.
I'm surprised no one has stopped to even ask though... why is this particular patch of sand in High Resolution, and no other area for an eye alt of at least 300 miles? Did "someone" else already know it was there, and made the hi-res available because of the oddity? I'm more curious about that then what it actually is.
How many of these can we find...?
