# The Sahara geoglyphs

## Part 5. Different Type Symbols.

In this part, we consider symbols of different types, which are located in close proximity to each other. This circumstance is another obvious confirmation of the fact that the Sahara geoglyphs make a unit system consisting of different, but interrelated objects.

Further on we will see some combinations of different types of symbols. But there are such geoglyphs that do not occur simultaneously in one place. These are mainly SK type symbols, which are rather compactly located in the northern part of the largest group of geoglyphs. As a rule, they are combined only with S symbols of the "UFO" type, with different SR circles and sometimes with SC.

The image below shows a rare combination of two symbols SK 2409 and SK 2410 with a pair of symbols SC 66 and 67.

The following pictures show two more combinations of SK symbols with S and SR symbols.

In this case, next to the symbol SK 14653 are two geoglyphs similar to boomerang S 14651 and S 14652.

In this image, symbol SK 14862 is located at the very top.

Below to the left of the middle are two symbols SR 14860 and SR 14861, superimposed one upon the other. A little to the right of the middle at the bottom is a “boomerang” symbol -  S 14859, наложенные один на другой. А немного правее середины внизу расположен symbol - «бумеранг» – S 14859.

Below there are some more interesting examples where SK symbols are located next to SR and S ones.

Three SK 2051-53 symbols of different shapes and one symbol in the form of a circle - SR 2054.

SK 14420 symbol surrounded by SR circles.

SK 14141 Symbol tending to the circle, and next to the symbol there is a “boomerang” - S 14142.

Another similar case. A large symbol, about 80 m, in the shape of a horseshoe - S 14855, surrounded by three symbols - SK 14856 - 58.

Another SK 14425 symbol and two circles SR 14423 and SR 14424.

SK 14436 symbol surrounded by SR 14435 and SR 14434 symbols.

SK 2512 and SR 2513. symbols.

SK 2531 symbol.

Next, we consider several examples where SS type symbols - “spindle” - are located next to geoglyphs of another type, mainly, as a rule, these are symbols S and SR.

The following pictures show a combination of the geoglyphs of the "spindle" with the geoglyphs of the "UFO".

SS 3163 symbol next to S 3164 symbol.

SS 3165 symbol next to a “sputnik” type symbol - S 3166.

Symbol SS 1442, which is located at the top of the picture, is adjacent to several S symbols.

We will return to these objects when we consider the relative position of geoglyphs.

Next to symbol SS 3100, which is located in the center of the satellite image, is symbol S 3099, similar to UFO images.

The two pictures below show a cluster of geoglyphs of various shapes, among which there are several SS symbols and S symbols with beams of different shapes. In the center is the symbol SS 1283.

The following image shows this group in larger size.

A cluster of SS and SU type geoglyphs in combination with points.

Another group of different type symbols.

SK 418-20 and S 17453 geoglyphs.

S 18405-07 and S 18413-14 geoglyphs.

Next, we consider several examples of the combination of S symbols of the “sputnik” type with geoglyphs of other types.

Basically, next to "satellites" are the symbols in the form of points or circles.

Next to the small symbol S 2384 of the «sputnik» subtype there is a geoglyph in the form of a circle - SR 2383.

Another similar case. SR 3060 is located next to S 3059.

The following image shows the satellite subspecies symbol S 14478 and the atypical geoglyph SR 14477, which contains two other small symbols.

This image shows a «sputnik» subtype symbol S 14478 and an atypical geoglyph SRM 14477, with two more small symbols inside it.

In this case, next to the symbol S 2497 there is a circle SR 2495 with a point in the center. A little to the east there are remains of SK 2498 symbol.

Geoglyphs S 18212 and S 18213 of different types and a typical point.

This image shows at least 6 geoglyphs. One of them is a large and well-marked circle S 19766, to the east of which there is a small group of atypical symbols - АS 95. Below, along the extended ridge, there are a few S symbols.

Next to a small symbol SU 3110 there is another symbol SU 3130, resembling the silhouette of a jellyfish or UFO.

Another similar case. Next to S 1158 symbol is S 1157 symbol.

S 1158 и S 1157 geoglyph

Next, we consider symbols of the SR form, which have an additional semicircle consisting of individual points. These geoglyphs are combined mainly with S symbols  of the classical shape.

S 13078 и SR 13079 symbols

Neighboring geoglyphs

Another similar group located nearby. SR 13067 symbol and surrounding S symbols.

Symbol S 10855, located between symbols SR 10856 and SR 10857.

The image below shows another section of the Sahara Desert, containing a lot of point-symbols in combination with S-type symbols.

Such areas, consisting mainly of individual points, very much. They cover quite large areas of the desert.

The two following images show SR symbols with points next to large S-shape symbols.

Symbol S 11527 surrounded by circles and points of different types

The image above shows a large geoglyph similar to the bow shaft. It is surrounded by points of different sizes, one of which, in turn, is surrounded by smaller points. A little to the East there is another similar circle, next to which there is another small symbol S and a few separate points.

Symbols SR 11776, S 11775 and S 11777.

The image below shows an interesting geoglyph - S 10692 sizing more than 100 meters, which is surrounded by many points of different types, including semicircles of individual points. The entire central part of the symbol also consists of small circles. In addition, there is another small symbol, resembling a UFO, "flying" to the west. All these objects are interconnected, both among themselves and with other geoglyphs.

Symbols S 10692,

Next, we consider some combinations of different shape S-type geoglyphs, both among themselves and with other types. Below some typical examples are given.

Symbols S 3856 – S 3862.

A cluster of symbols S 5298 - SR 5321 of various shapes and sizes

Symbols S 8131 – SR 8145.

Symbols S 11764 – S 11773.

The image below shows another cluster of S symbols, among which there are 3 types of geoglyphs. The most beautiful symbol is in the center - S 15250, measuring over 200 meters.

A few more similar clusters.

The largest geoglyph - S 15390.

Next, we consider several combinations of geoglyphs from the western zone. These objects differ in shape, but still, one can distinguish in them the central part, and two outgoing beams, similar to tentacles. Geoglyphs in the western part are of different preservation level and are often difficult to discern. Therefore, alongside with a natural image those with a circled outline are given, suchch that in reality can only be seen at a very large scale.

Symbols S10009 - S10011.

A cluster of geoglyphs S 12681 – S 12688.

The same group with circled contours.

Geogly[hs S 12875 and S 12876.

Symbols S12875 – S 12876 with circled contours.

Symbols S10125 – S 10127.

Thus, we have seen that geoglyphs of different shapes can occur in groups in different combinations. But at the same time, for example, among western geoglyphs there is not a single symbol of  SK type or some other types. In their turn, western symbols clearly resemble separate objects from the central part of the Sahara.

In the next part, we will consider geoglyphs, which consist of different types of symbols directly superimposed on one another.
