Google Earth reveals strange goings-on in Gobi desert, China

Google Earth reveals strange goings-on in Gobi desert, China

(3:29) What are the mysterious structures in the Gobi desert? Has Google Earth been hacked? Conspiracy theorists will have a field day. What is your theory? Check it out for yourself in Google Maps. Coordinates are: 40.452107, 93.742118. Spiral construction can be seen here.

Agreed, the 40.452107,93.742118 zig zags in particular look very much like a photoshop layer blend.

Surely this is spying? Were China, through a Chinese company, photograph 'secret' bases in America and then leave it to their population to scour through them, there would be an uproar. This seems provocative; which is not wise.

Have a word with Langley. They'll let you know (or maybe they'll kill you)

They talk about it being desolate, but it's barely 20 mins drive from Dunhuang, and if you read up on Dunhuang, there are some clues like military defence and archaeological digs, it mentions beacons stretching out into the desert and so on. One has to ask when were these constructed? The video hints that they are currently being built, but given that they only have Google maps to go on, there really is no clue. I'd suggest they're far from new structures (except maybe the runways) but relying entirely on Google maps for world exploration is best left to the Americans

The circles are more concentric than spiral; the 'planes' are about 10 meters long and the diameter of the circle is approximately 300 meters. If you zoom out from this area, you'll see a few more ‘patterns’, some definitely look like runways, one specifically with a very strange blue/green florescent hue.

What's the deal with this area? 44 42'40.81"N 93 31'46.18"E Why all the little rectangles?

From the scale on Google Maps, the lines are approximately 20 meters wide and the whole rectangle is 150 x 75 meters. Some lines appear to follow the terraine, but some are obviously geometric and they're not overlays, since rain seems to have carried the substrate across white lines. Looks like art to me, perhaps a very large desolate convase for some Chinese artist. I know Ai Weiwei is confined to Beijing, but others could have made the 'art' from a template. Who knows, it's just a hypothesis.

there is a believable theory that these are calibrating grids for chinese satellites.

Don't know what Filmaddict was measuring but the smallest of the two rectangles is 1km x 1.5km. There's a massive radar array to the South East approximately 21 miles from the concentric circles and a large building complex a further 14 miles to the South East with randomly placed, roughly dug trenches nearby. The road approaching that complex seems to have a large checkpoint and a high wall to restrict access. At the end of the supply road there is a hydro electric power station. I thought they might be testing satellites but I fear it might be weapons given the distances. Old or knew, who knows. Either way, the Newsreader is an idiot.

7 miles to the North East of the circles there is a curved listening station. The convergence point of this curve points almost exactly at the centre of the circles. Be surprised if this wasn't, at some point, an atomic test site.
