  1. It was photographed by a Russian aviator in 1916.  It was supposedly nearly intact and grounded on the shore of a lake on Ararat.  There are no photographs remaining from this find, and details of the account indicate it to be fictional

  2. It was photographed in 1973 by the Earth Resources Technology Satellite (ERTS).  ERTS has a resolution much too small to photograph the ark.  It would have been one pixel in size.  The object in the photo would have been several miles in size
