Searching Google Earth and Ocean for Lost Islands and Cities
Fragment of a scroll about "Atlantis" by Hellanicus of Lesbos
K@ri published an exciting article:
- Atlantis the Lost City... Found on Google Earth?
The Sun, a UK tabloid, had an article stating someone had found the location of Atlantis using Google Earth. Google Earth denied the claim, saying the lines that were seen were just the result of sonar used by boats measuring the ocean's floor...
Atlantis, by Monsù Desiderio (beginning of the 17th century)
And I wondered...
Could it be possible to discover with Google Ocean or Google Earth lost cities, islands, even the Lost Continent of Atlantis? I did some research and found that the Cuban newspaper Granma in 2001 reported how ADC (Advanced Digital Communications) the previous summer had filmed some ruines of a possible "Lost City", on the western tip of Cuba in the Yucatan Channel. ADC Engineer Paulina Zelitsky stated that the nature of their discovery was not yet fully understood, and that they would return to conduct further investigations. What they had discovered, was a "marvelous structure which could possibly have been a great urban center".
Granma reported that the underwater video images showed a pyramid-shaped structure, that could have been at least 6,000 years old. The large blocks of granite, between two and five meters long, were found in circular and perpendicular formations. Only some of them were covered with sediment and the area's fine white sand.
Paulina Zelitsky said the structures were presumably built on dry land before being covered by the sea and that they could have been sunk by volcanic activity in the area. She confirmed ADC possessed high resolution sidescan sonar images of "a huge land plateau with clear images of what appears to be manmade large-size architectural designs partly covered by sand. From above, the shapes resemble pyramids, roads and buildings."
Because of copyright reasons, I can't publish the images in this Hub, but here are some samples.

- Underwater Anomalies in The Andes of Peru
Using Google Earth, this guy came across some very interesting anomalies in lakes throughout the Andes Mountains in Peru.
"There are quite a number of ancient ruins such as Machu Picchu that have been inhabited by the Inca and civilizations much older than the Inca," this guy says. On his page, you can see a photo album with sixteen "Unidentified Underwater Anomalies" found near Lake Titicaca and in the northern central Andes, 200 miles north-east from Lima.
You will wonder what you are looking at: computer boards? buildings with streets, houses, corridors? One of the images seems to show walls that have crumbled... "I have yet to determine what I'm seeing in Google Earth and would like to hear what you think these anomalies might be," this guy says.
I couldn't say it better!
Satellite Image of Lake Titicaca
An international team of archeaologists has found the ruins of an ancient temple under Lake Titicaca, that has long drawn fascination with various legends surrounding it, including one of an underwater city called Wanaku and one of Inca gold lost by the Spanish.
"The Incas also regarded the lake as the birthplace of their civilization, and in their myth, the Children of The Sun emerged out of the waters."
A second expedition claimed they discovered the ancient underwater Tiwanakotas civilization, a precursor to the Incas...
is Atlantis as it rises
from the watery depths
of human consciousness
to match with
all of the known and unknown
Whispers from the past
contain clues to our Future
wich will lift the veil to reveal
"at your command"
I will delete Atlantis
You didn't make clear
whether I was "allowed"
to delete Stonehenge
