      EXCLUSIVE: Satellite Sleuth Closes in on Noah's Ark Mystery

      High on Mt. Ararat in eastern Turkey, there is a baffling mountainside "anomaly," a feature that
      one researcher claims may be something of biblical proportions.

      Images taken by aircraft, intelligence-gathering satellites and commercial remote-sensing
      spacecraft are fueling an intensive study of the intriguing oddity. But whether the anomaly is
      some geological quirk of nature, playful shadows, a human-made structure of some sort, or simply
      nothing at all—that remains to be seen.

      Whatever it is, the anomaly of interest rests at 15,300 feet (4,663 meters) on the northwest
      corner of Mt. Ararat, and is nearly submerged in glacial ice. It would be easy to call it merely a
      strange rock formation.

      But at least one man wonders if it could be the remains of Noah's Ark—a vessel said to have been
      built to save people and selected animals from the Great Flood, the 40 days and 40 nights of
      deluge as detailed in the Book of Genesis.

      The Genesis blueprint of the Ark detailed the structure as 6:1 length to width ratio (300 cubits
      by 50 cubits). The anomaly, as viewed by satellite, is close to that 6:1 proportion.
