Someone posted a question about this mark painted on a road in town. Someone replied that it's a survey marker that can be seen by satellites. I hope it isn't a bombing target.

Have you seen anything like this before?

Can't see it from my house Jerry but you should move to a new neighborhood.

I'm not sure but, I think they can overlay current images over images from the past and they use those marks to line everything up. Then they can spot buildings and sheds that have been built without permits or approval.

The Franchise Tax Board in the State of California uses a satellite to track taxpayers in tax disputes. The satellite takes pictures of the taxpayer's home and associated automobiles to prove residence.

Jerry, these are generally survey markers. The primary use is for aerial surveys. Here's one that is south of where I live. Oddly, it's not a section corner. However, its distance from a section corner may be known.

"X"marks the spot. Get over there with a backhoe and start digging for the treasure!

Don't stand on it. Remember what happens to the Coyote when he stands on an X

Ask the coyote he may know. Beep, beep.

Maybe you should pain a few additional Xs in various locations near that one. It might confuse their satellite tracking system. ;)

Seasonally speaking, a directional indicator for recreating the route to Golgotha?
