Comments:
This target has relatively high reflectivity and no associated geology surrounding it. It is sitting in a benign area and stands out as not natural, which is its strongest characteristic. The size of the image measures approximately 8 meters long and 2 meters wide. While it does not match the general shape expectations or overall dimensions it does appear man-made and could be part of the aircraft. The location is close to the next sortie making it a short deviation to re-image.
