Visited this site in 2000 when at Salalah - not overly impressive when compared to other larger ruins but still interesting - it was being excavated by European team.

I ran accross some crazy article claiming a weird design in the desert in China today and just to see if it was real I went and looked via google earth, according to the coordinates.  There in fact is some large weird design there, I also noticed some other stuff nearby, where someone "may" be excavating something?  The coordinates for what may be an excavation near the design are....   40 deg  27'44.9" N 93 deg 22'21.o2" E.  There is a well marked road of travel to and from the site.  Next to this site is a very large weird square, maybe a large exploratory excavation, farming?

 

No idea what any of this is, but interesting to look at... This is located SE of Xinjiang  and due S of Govi-Altai.  The design is to the right of a large light colored square in the earth and the ruins are just past the north edge of the large light colored square.

Doesnt surprise me  , I  have seen pretty far out stuff G E ng China .   Especially up in the foothills behind Hotan  - Tashidashixiang , - a perfect place for a bandit settlement ( near the silk route  via Hotan )  .  Its like a mini    version of the greater basin all along the north of that silk route, it has a river with two watersheds that flow towards the central part of the river then appears to disappear underground.  A huge mine there with a giant black hole, a ring of white in the centre and black inside that . And some of the structures along that river !  Looks like a combo of farming , mining housing  and  prison cells  .....   who knows , there, it might be all of the above combined  .

This should work, it doe's in Google Earth - 40°27'44.9" N   93°22'21.02" E

I don't know what the features are, but I wonder if they are old military constructions. There are what look like air fields here - 40°28'49.71" N  93°29'33.32" E , and another abstract here 40°27'04.28" N  93°44'34.15" E

Curious.  There's is a panaramio photo integrated in Google Earth at the second abstract location showing the design is on the ground and not some imagery abstract.

Also zooming in reveals an interesting drawing.

Not that exhausting I happened to have lived in Europe for four years and the Middle East for 20+ years so I had plenty of time to see them - well spread out over time. The Central American sites I saw either as tourist or as a Mayanist in training at various field schools.
