Very interesting find, though some archeologists suspect many more lost pyramids are out there. One states she suspects as many as 15 pyramids are possible from NASA photos, we still have a lot to learn.

Well this sounds to me like some one late to the party is trying to take credit for some one else's work. Sara Parcak, University of Alabama, led the research team working with NASA, in early 2011. By May 2011, two of their pyramid finds were under excavation along with another previously unknown 17 pyramids, 1,000 other non-pyramid tombs and 3,000 ancient settlements.

The featured photograph suggests that the structure, assuming it is man-made, was a tetrahedron. All cultures which have created tapering monuments - Egypt, South America, China - chose the pyramid for its stability and, presumably, the relative simplicity of its engineering. No-one built a tetrahedron. If this is one, it will be a first and even more exciting than a re-discovered pyramid.

And three cheers for Google Earth for giving archaeologists the means to see into countries whose political situation does not permit to get on the ground and do their fascinating stuff.
