    Is that bluish thing in the middle a salt glacier? If so, I’ll guess that this is in the zargos mountains of Iran. Assuming you haven’t worked out rotations yet, I’ll say the eastern part.

    Have you had a look at where in the galaxy?
    check out the picture and last paragraph here:

    that’s a pretty good guess…but, no, it’s not the Zagros Mts…

    Took me three continents before I found it… best clue (besides the geology) was the lack of patchwork satellite overlays. Looks like a structural geologist’s paradise.

    Any idea how old the sediments in that photo are (I assume the deformation is Pennsylvanian/Permian Pangea-related- but it could be mediterranian, I suppose)?

    I actually don’t know too much about the geology here…

    It is in an area of Algeria called the Saharan Atlas Range (considered a subrange of the Atlas Mts).
