17 Lost Egyptian Pyramids Found From Space

Infrared imaging was used to locate ancient buried pyramids.

Watch out Dr. Jones, there's a new sheriff in town.

Seventeen lost pyramids and more than 1,000 tombs have been uncovered in a satellite survey of Egypt.

Researchers at the University of Alabama also located more than 3,000 ancient settlements in the area after studying images produced by a state-of-the-art infrared technique which allowed them to clearly see the ruins underground.

With two pyramids already confirmed by scientists, they believe there are thousands more unknown sites in the region.

"I could see the data as it was emerging, but for me the 'aha' moment was when I could step back and look at everything that we'd found," Dr. Sarah Parcack, who led the survey, told the BBC. "I couldn't believe we could locate so many sites all over Egypt."
