Ancient Pyramid Spotted by Satellite

Italian researchers have ennounced the discovery of an ancient pyramid located not far from Peru’s mysterious Nazca lines. The Quickbird satellite produced multispectral images, which, when properly filtered and examined, show a large pyramid whose base is roughly 300 feet by 328 feet. The structure is invisible to tne naked eye, as it has long been covered with dirt and vegetation. There are no immediate plans to excavate the new discovery, as there is already extensive ongoing archaeology in the area. The discovery comes as no surprise to archaeologists, who were aware that several hills in the area might well hide ancient structures. Hopefully, the same technology will be able to locate lost Aztec, Inca and Maya sites as well.
