Must be the Vesuvius. You know, in Italy. The one that destroyed Pompei and Herculaneum.
Obviously in South America. I don't know which one specifically though.

I wonder if we could zoom in to this high resolution pic and see rice patties and such.. Hmm maybe a ninja practicing too.

it is mt fuji...off to the left top side 10:00 you can see a crater thats called The Hoei Crater which was formed in the eruption of 1707
the pic itself needs to be turned clockwise 90' if you do that the crater is at 1:00
I believe it's in South America because of the large geometric shapes that the native people there would draw on the ground in order to please the gods.

Looks like a ship to me.
hi res links:
Warning: all picture are 2MB +
I'd like to know the trajectory of that object in space. Maybe it's a piece of space junk or an old satellite. Also, did those pictures come directly off of NASA's website, or from somewhere else?
Looks like cgi to me... ;)

Henk: your first picture seems to be unavailable...
Click the first picture
Don't know why the deep link is busted and yes these come from the official nasa FTP server :)
Otherwise remove the deep link
Did NASA edit them at all? Or do they offer speculation as to what it is in the pictures?
