FROM SPACE                                                                                                    continued



Close investigation of this series of eight objects has been made by low-flying aircraft.  It has been observed that they seem to be tree-covered pyramids and are not eight but twelve, as four additional smaller ones, also arranged in the two rows, did not show on the LANDSAT photographs.  Several
attempts have been made to get to the area by land, but these have been complicated by difficult jungle conditions that have resulted in the death and disappearance of some of the explorers.  These hazards include poisonous snakes, insects and distinctly unfriendly Indians who are apt to resist intruders with silent blowguns or long arrows and who believe that the area is a sacred city of the
"Old Ones".

Several American explorers, including Herb Sawinski and Phillip Miller, both of Fort Lauderdale, Florida, have flown over the"pyramids" in small planes and taken photographs of them.  Sawinski, who has overflown them at 200 feet altitude, remarks on their regular form or construction:



"They look like structures covered with vegetation.  They are symmetrically aligned in relation to each other.  Several show a washout near the top, which would indicate that they were man-made or further built up by man.  The difference in the color of the vegetation shows that they are made of different material than that of the surrounding basic jungle floor. 

There are two other enormous rectangular formations now covered by trees and two semicircular ones, not so tall as the pyramids.  They are to the south but are part of the complex.  There are also high semicircular ridges at each of the complex, which may turn out to be walls."


Q.  Do you think that they are really pyramids?

A.  They certainly look like it .  We sent a request to the Envirounmental Institute of Michigan and they suggested that the pyramids might be truncated ridges, like the Devil's Backbone in Colorado.  But this would not explain the other structures.  I think it is possible that the entire complex is the remains of an ancient city built by some race thousands of years before the Incas.
