This aerial shot of an Algerian desert (31° 7'45.56"N, 7°56'23.12"E) looks like something taken by a satellite orbiting Mars. The stunning alien-like landscape has inspired some Google Earth daydreamers to spot images of girl's face (31°15'14.82"N, 7°53'12.10"E) (see it on Google Maps) or a tree (30°56'55.41"N, 7°52'51.37"E) (see it on Google Maps) between the wavy sandy crevasses. Think Algeria looks other-worldly? Try these mud flats (39.094361,83.596134) (see it in Google Maps) found in a remote part of Sinkiang, China, and this beadlike tableau (17°25'42.01"N, 6°38'30.39"E) (see it in Google Maps) in the Agadez region of Niger, where salt production has created odd formations in the landscape.
