Half-buried 'pyramids' spotted in Antarctica

Is this a man-made structure or a naturally occurring rocky peak ? Image Credit: Google Earth
An eagle-eyed Internet user has spotted some peculiar pyramid-shaped structures on Google Earth.
The latest in a series of anomalous objects spotted on the search giant's satellite mapping service, the controversial find has been generating a lot of discussion online over the last few days.

Referred to as 'snow pyramids', these structures each appear to have four sides and have been regarded by some as evidence of an undiscovered ancient civilization.

Sadly though, it seems far more likely that the 'pyramids' are actually rocky peaks known as nunataks which are essentially the tops of mountains protruding through the ice.

The distinctive straight edges and flat sides are the result of natural erosion over millions of years.

Spreading misinformation?...did I get it right George? Unexplained Mysteries means mysteries that are unexplained...not lying about the already explained.

"Great barren peaks of mystery loomed up...against the west as the low sun...poured it's hazy reddish rays over the white snow...and black bits of exposed granite. Something about the scene reminded me of the evilly fabled Plateau of Leng which occurs in the dreaded Necronomicon of the mad Arab Abdul Alhazred."  From  "At The Mountains of Madness"    H.P Lovecraft
