Extraordinary Photos from China's Area 51

Extraordinary Photos from China's Area 51

November 21, 2011 - Editor's Notice: Even though this story has gone viral and has been picked up by the main stream media, we want to thank the courageous Chinese lady who sent this to viewzone in early November and also to Haisheng Liu, who translated the text for us. With all the speculation we remind readers that the photographs and coordinates provided to viewzone were accompanied by an explanation. Which is most likely the smartest position to start.

I was asked to translate a latest submission to viewzone that contained the adhering to photos, taken from the google-earth program. Of course I checked the archives to be sure they are appropriate and mentioned the GPS coordinates so anyone can affirm that these items are genuine.

The top rated of this strange rectangle building spans 5670 feet -- over a mile -- and the street-like structures are as significantly as 100 feet vast! Google-earth photographs show the building at numerous times likely back to 2005. It is often covered with mud and the encompassing land displays no symptoms of activity for miles (apart from some miles to the West, in which a ideal sq. of earth about a mile broad has been covered over with sand). Prior to 2005 the google-earth photos are blurred in this certain spot, suggesting it is not new. It appears to be made fairly thick as it has not buckled or cracked over the years.

Google now has a function exactly where you can see the exact place at distinct times in the past. Some photographs go back again 10 years. In this way you can see what has took place over time. The "puzzle" building is really aged and appears in the earliest satellite pictures (when not obscured on goal). But wait, there is certainly more unusual things in this quick region:

As you will want to see these for your self, the coordinates are offered. Zoom in on some of the remains of structures and camps. They are all vacated and look like they have been ransacked. There's a sign of an explosion in places with the floor riddled with 10 foot craters, as if cluster-bombed.

Why is google earth blurry up close

If you zoom too close ultimately you'll go beyond the resolution of imagery and it will start to "pixelate". Most land areas in Google Earth are covered in satellite imagery with a resolution of about 15 meters per pixel so as you zoom closer to the 15 meter threshold fewer and fewer pixels of image will appear.

New features Google Earth Pro 6.1

If you want to feel the globe at your finger tips, Google Earth is simply the best way to do it. It can be thought of as a virtual globe. It is a geographical program which maps locations of the earth by superposition of images from aerial photography and satellite imagery. It was introduced in 2004 by Keyhole Inc. with the name of EarthViewer 3D.
