Cymd460a

 

Hypothesis

 

This is probably a highly eroded dam, the walls having broken off.

 

 

Cymd460a2

 

A parabola is shown.

 

 

Cymmh464d

 

Hypothesis

 

A shows these walled structures, in them the pale areas may be a degrading floor. Some of these objects may also have been furniture made of stone or cement. B shows more of these that may be degraded or buried. C at 2 o’clock shows a long very straight wall extending to the right. C at 4 o’clock shows more structures between the walls like furniture. The rooms at D show many small objects in the walls, these may also be from a collapsed roof. The rooms around E, F, and G may be partially buried like at B.

 

 

Cymhh464g

 

Hypothesis

 

A shows a ridge that may be natural or associated with these formations. The ridge at B is dark but continues on as a pale wall casting a shadow on its upper side, down to G. C shows some small rooms. D, E, and F show some fainter ridges, perhaps worn down walls. At G and H the walls are triangular.

 

 

Cymhh464g2

 

Hypothesis

 

Here some of the walls have a line on them to show how straight they are. The triangles appear to be 50, 60, and 70 degrees. This is hard to explain geologically where these angles would appear over and over, one triangle is marked with these angles.

 

 

Cymhh464i

 

Hypothesis

 

A and B show many rooms and walls. C at 11 o’clock may show a nexus where the walls come together into a circle or crater. The walls seem to be directed towards this crater though a meteor would fall in a random position. D shows many small rooms extending up the image, these may be buried or under an intact darker roof. These areas could be explored to see how many intact and sealed rooms survive. E at 8 o’clock shows another round nexus where the walls appear to converge, perhaps a meeting place. At 10 o’clock there may be a bridge over a cavity. At 3 and 5 o’clock the rooms may be partially buried. F shows another nexus at 9 o’clock the other rooms may have eroded away. G shows a large array of rectilinear rooms at 10 o’clock extending over to A. At 4 and 8 o’clock the rooms are more irregular.

 

 

Cymhh464i2

 

Hypothesis

 

Straight lines are overlaid to show how straight these walls are.

 

 

Cymhh465e

 

Hypothesis

 

A shows a long straight wall at 8 o’clock continuing down to C. Between 4 and 6 o’clock there are rooms with some objects in them, perhaps furniture. Around B the rooms may be partially buried or the ceilings are intact. C shows many more roads or walls. D may be a hollow where the walls of rooms have collapsed. There may also be rooms under E and F.

 

 

Cymhh465e2

 

Hypothesis

 

The lines show how straight the walls are.

 

 

Cymhh465g

 

Hypothesis

 

A shows many small rooms around the same size. B may be intact roof material, this changes to open rooms between C and G. C at 11 and 1 o’clock shows larger rooms continuing on to F. D shows rooms with very straight walls, they seem to nest inside each other. E shows a hollow or the rooms may be buried by the darker soil. G shows more small rooms

 

 

Cymhh465g2

 

Hypothesis

 

The lines show how straight the walls are.

 

 

Cymhh465h

 

Hypothesis

 

This shows some more triangular walls, A follows a ridge to some faint rooms on the right. B shows some larger rooms on the left and a nexus at 4 o’clock. C shows a cavity, perhaps with some intact ceilings at 2, 4, and 7 o’clock. At 12 o’clock the rooms are more irregular in shape. Between D, E, and G the rooms are trapezoids like two joined triangles, as well as triangular. F and G show more walls.

 

 

Cymhh465h2

 

Hypothesis

 

The lines show how straight the walls are, also two curves are parabolic in shape.

 

 

Cymhh466d

 

Hypothesis

 

Between A, B and E there is a large hill that may contain intact rooms. Some are shown at A, also at B at 7 o’clock.  At 3 and 9 o’clock the edge of the pit is smooth in shape, C shows layers underground which may have been used to build the lighter walls. If this was volcanic ash it may have been used to make cement, some may have been more easily eroded into dust and blown away. D may show eroded rooms at 4 and 5 o’clock.

 

 

Cymhh466d2

 

Hypothesis

 

The edge of the pit is a parabola.

 

 

Cymhh466k

 

Hypothesis

 

A shows some walls at 11, 1, and 3 o’clock, partially buried by the dark soil such as at 8 o’clock. Between A and B there are more walls, at B there may be a nexus of walls or tubes.

 

 

Cymhh466k2

 

Hypothesis

 

There are many straight grooves here at right angles to each other, perhaps the walls eroded away leaving the foundations. Some dams have been like this, eroded away with a parabolic groove left in the ground.

 

 

Cymhh467

 

Hypothesis

 

A may show some collapsed hollow hills. B shows some straight ridges, perhaps interior supports of this larger formation. From C to D is a curved interior support. E may be a collapsed section, F shows some tubes or walls.

 

 

Cymhh467a

 

Hypothesis

 

There are two parabolas in this formation, as well as the straight walls.

 

 

Cymhh469g

 

Hypothesis

 

A at 10 o’clock shows a hill with room like shapes on its lower side, at 3 and 5 o’clock are more rooms. B and C show many walled rooms. D shows rooms that may be partially buried by the dark soil, or they ended in this open area. E shows more degraded rooms, F at 10 o’clock shows a nexus where many walls converge to it. At 3 and 4 o’clock there are perhaps rooms under the dark soil. G at 10, 12, and 1 o’clock as well as H at 12 o’clock follow this edge of the rooms, this section may be an intact ceiling with rooms under it.

 

 

Cymhh469g2

 

Hypothesis

 

There are many lines here showing how straight the walls are, but many more could have been drawn as well.

 

 

Cymhh469h

 

Hypothesis

 

The walls around A seem to be the same as to the right, but covered in dark soil. B may be more intact ceiling material with the tops of the walls showing through it. On the left of C may be more intact ceilings, the shading implies they are domed. To the right at 3 o’clock appears to be a nexus of walls converging. D shows many more walls, E at 11 o’clock shows with the shadows how high the walls are. At 4 o’clock is another nexus. F, G, and H may be more intact ceilings. From I across to D the walls seem to be catching the sun’s light and reflecting it upwards, this indicates the albedo of the walls.

 

 

Cymhh469h2

 

Hypothesis

 

This shows how straight the walls are.

 

Cymhh469i

 

Hypothesis

 

A shows the walls in more of a shadow to the right, indicating their height. At 9 o’clock there may be an intact ceiling with rooms under it. At C the walls are more irregular, at D the sun might indicate the ceilings have collapsed into a cavity. E and F may also have intact ceilings, G may be where the ceilings have collapsed.

 

 

Cymhh469i2

 

Hypothesis

 

This shows how straight the walls are.

 

 

Cymhh469j

 

Hypothesis

 

A shows a distinct room with shadows at 12 o’clock, at 2 o’clock is a rounded dome. In this area the walls seemed to have intact ceilings, some like at 12 o’clock have lost their roofs exposing the interiors. At 4 o’clock is an unusual object. B at 7 and 8 o’clock have clearer walls, the section at 2 and 4 o’clock may be a large intact roof. Around C the ground is lower than this roof, 4, 5, 8, and 9 o’clock show protruding walls. D, E, and F show more wall variations, F at 10 o’clock shows finer wall structures. G shows distinct walls, at 11 o’clock one curved wall connects to a straight wall towards C. At 4 o’clock may be the remains of a ceiling.

 

 

Cymhh469j2

 

Hypothesis

 

The lines show how straight the walls are, a semicircular shape is also shown. The walls appear to converge to the center of the circle.

 

 

Cymhh469l

 

Hypothesis

 

There are many objects inside these rooms, perhaps furniture. A shows some walls partially buried in the dark soil, covering more walls above A. B appears to show blown dark soil across the walls at 9 o’clock, this is so prevalent it may be from a disintegrated roof. At 4, 6, and 7 o’clock the walls are more distinct though the dark soil is in the rooms. C, D and E show the edge of another dark soil area burying rooms. F is a higher area perhaps with intact pale ceilings.

 

 

Cymhh469l2

 

Hypothesis

 

The lines show how straight the walls are.

 

 

Cymhh469m

 

Hypothesis

 

A shows some faint walls, perhaps partially buried. B shows walls at 6, 7, and 8 o’clock without the dark soil. At 1 o’clock may be ceiling material, at 4 o’clock may be a dome. C shows more irregular rooms, D may be the edge of where some rooms are buried. E may be a hollow of eroded rooms, it points to different kinds of walls. F shows clear walls at 10 and 11 o’clock, at 4 o’clock the walls have dark soil on their floors. G between 2 and 4 o’clock shows small domes or objects like furniture on some rooms.

 

 

Cymhh469m2

 

Hypothesis

 

The lines show how straight the walls are.
