Lost Egyptian pyramids found by Google Earth

"A Google Earth satellite imagery survey may have found two pyramid complexes in Egypt, Discovery News reported.

The sites, which are located about 90 miles apart, contain unusual groupings of mounds with intriguing features and orientation, satellite archaeology research Angela Micol said to the Archaelogy News Network.

One site is located in Upper Egypt, just 12 miles from the city of Abu Sidhum on the Nile, and features four mounds with a larger triangular shaped plateau. The site complex is arranged in a very clear formation, and extends approximately 620 feet, three times the size of the Great Pyramid. 

The second site is 90 miles north, and close to the Fayoum Oasis."
