Angela Micol believes that she may have located several undiscovered pyramids in Egypt using Google.

A 'satellite archaeologist', Micol uses tools such as Google Earth to help her identify possible archaeological sites that have otherwise gone unnoticed such as her discovery of a potentially undiscovered underwater city off the Yucatan Peninsula. Her new find in Egypt comprises of several small mounds and a distinct 4-sided pyramidal shape in a formation similar to the Pyramids of Giza.

To get to the bottom of the mystery and determine if there really is something there archaeologists are likely to be visiting the site in the near future to conduct a full investigation.

Abe, this Angela Micol is with Google Earth Anomalies Check under the Linear Features Tab, you can find some info on featuresw discovered off the Yucatan peninsula and Cuba. OK, thanks Spartan. http://www.googleearthanomalies.com/Anomalies/tabid/56/articleType/ArticleView/articleId/33/Yucatan-Peninsula-Linear-Features.aspx Now that does look interesting.

in fact the she is not contributing to the site alone, she owns it. A few Linear anomalies and Mima mounds and some sea mounds make up an underwater city? shes got to be kidding. Missed this one. Thiose perfectly straight undersea lines look very unnatural too me. Maybe it's not a city, but whatever it is, I hope we'll hear more of it.

The supposed pyramids compared with the pyramids at Abusir. You can see that the Abusir pyramids have very clear square shapes and plenty of stone blocks lying around as evidence that they are man-made pyramids that have degraded over time. But the top pic has none of that. I think these are just rocky features in the desert.

Either yardangs - Rock formations shaped by wind & sandstorms - Or pyramids that were unfinished OR poorly - constructed like some other Egyptian pyramids other than the Giza Plateau pyramids.
