There is supposed to be a radio telescope up that way, but I don't thing these buildings are it.

Now, a little up the road at 22.373393, 31.624542 is something interesting. What are these patterns?

Simbel is one of the earliest observatories, built by Ramsis the II around 1279 B.C. on the banks of the Nile. It was recently relocated by UNESCO to protect it from rising flood water. Here's a link with more info:
