Satellite Imagery

Satellite Imagery has recently been introduced into the Atlantis search with a variety of location claims based on features visible from space. These assertions include Albania (2007), Andalusia, Spain (2003), Cyrenaica, Libya (2005) and Sherbro Island, Sierra Leone (2007). All such claims must, of necessity, be treated with extreme caution unless substantiated by archaeology on the ground. At best, only one of the sites listed here can be correct and probably all are not, since Atlantis is supposed to have been submerged and so not yet readily visible to the scrutiny of our current aerial mapping technology.

The most recent claim (2010) to have located Atlantis with satellite imagery places it between Bermuda and the Bahamas.

One of the most extreme claims based on images has come from Joseph P.Skipper who has identified some sea floor markings as an ancient script, apparently ignoring the fact that the lines of the writing would probably have to be a mile in width!
