Google Earth: Mysterious blacked-out area!!
« on: November 20, 2008, 11:50:09 pm »
My partner was checking out google earth in our area and noticed an spot way out in the woods that was "blacked out".  It is an almost perfect rectangle measuring approx 1/2 mile x 1/3 mile.  There was another area very near to the black rectangle that had several buildings with a fence around it.  There is a lot of logging that happens in this area.  Several of us went there today.  As we entered the unmarked, wide and nicely graveled road, there were warning signs about it being a private road and trucks should tune to cb channel 20 (we had no cb).  We passed through a gate that warned it could be locked at any time.    We pulled off onto one of the smaller roads (that lead into the blacked out area) to hide the car from the main road.  We then walked about 1/4 mile down the road which was very vehicle passable, although small.  Very dense woods on both sides.   We weren't terribly well-prepared to dash into the woods nor did we have anywhere to hide our car (there were fresh tracks going down this road even though it had been raining quite steadily).    We got a little spooked and did not proceed further down that road, while we were going back towards the car, a loud vehicle went by on the main road although it was not visible.    We backed out to the main road and kept going on into the area just outside the black rectangle.  After about another mile there appeared to be a large natural gas "station"...I'm not sure what it is called but it was large and quite intricate with buildings, fences and pipes.  This was the area of fenced in buildings visible from the satellite outside of the blacked-out area.    There were many "buried pipeline" markers about. 
Here is something else very weird: The satellite pictures showed these linear areas that seemed to be "small", artificial hills or something.  When viewed from ground level, they were precise wave-like patterns up to 10 meters high spaced out about 30-50 meters crest to crest.  They were devoid of vegetation but had detritus (old trees, stumps, branches, rocks) placed mostly on the top.  There were still lots of trees around them.  This is really difficult to explain what this looked like.  The lumps were as wide as an 8 lane freeway and we did not see the start, nor the end of them.  They were all around where we were driving while on the "private" road.  I was driving and did not get a really good look at them, but my partner was quite freak-out by the weirdness of it all.   
If the blacked-out area is to protect against "terrorism" aimed at the gas pipeline/gas facility, why wouldn't the whole facility be blacked-out?  The facility we saw had a lot of security fence and bright parking lot lights.  Unfortunately, we did not get too close nor spend too much time checking it out.   There are some very small back roads that approach the black-out rectangle from the other direction but we did not try to come from that side.  These may be old logging roads, it seems. There are a couple of other roads that we passed (leading into the black zone) but they were gated.  All of the roads were quite serpentine in nature.  However, from the satellite picture there is a "road" that is completely straight and wide, approx 1/3 mile long, located right beside the blacked-out spot.   We could not get to the straight portion without coming the back way or driving directly in front of the pipeline facility.   
This place is literally rural and quite forested.  The nearest town of any size is 20 miles away.

I think this trip was for recon.  We want to go back at night and hike into the blacked-out area.   I guess it would be difficult to take any pictures at night but darkness would provide good cover, of course. 

I would love to know if anyone has found anything like this on google earth.  As far as my partner has been poking around (which is a lot), he has not seen any other black spots like that, except in China.  Sometimes there are areas over water that are blacked-out, even angularly but this is different!   Also, if there are any places that are suspicious to you...check them out on google earth.  I am wondering if there are any FEMA camps visible from google earth or are the blacked-out like this , too?

We were in daylight, although a little rainy.  We got a few photos I haven't looked at yet.  We actually want to go back in the dark and explore in the area of the black-out rectangle.

Why don't you include a screenshot or a link to the area.

Here is a screenshot. My sister lives in Portland but I fear she thinks I'm a complete conspiracy nut, so no help there.

What is the area just north of the "black rectangle" that looks like a complex of buildings?

That is the gas/pipeline "station":  Fenced-in buildings w/lots of pipes and well-lit...smells like natural gas.  From the road, you can only see very little of what is actually inside.  That is where we made a turn-around about 50 yards from the entrance.   I know my story is long and probably difficult to read and sort out what I am trying to convey.  I am more than happy to answer any questions.  We thought we would solve a mystery, but ended up with more questions.

Great work RoWan...

Be careful

Makes no sense to black out google earth...  it's like ASKING for explorers to come recon the area.

   Sometimes the existing pipeline right of way is used for fiber optic runs,  maybe a critical telecom switching
or hidden underground datacenter?  Keep an eye out for buldings that you would normally see at the base of
a cellphone tower, but with no tower around.

Set up a 24 hour camera with nightvision for night. Recon who goes in an out.

I'm assuming you already asked local authorities about it? Actually you probably have not, why?

Definitely would if I had the means.  Funny you mention F16s.  I did not include this in the original post as there was much to talk about.  While we were walking down the road into the black (where the car was hidden from the main road), there was a loud noise like a plane of some sorts (not a small one).  The noise started abruptly, lasted about 5-10 seconds then diminished swiftly.  The nearest airport of any good size I am aware of is 50 miles away.  I am sure there must be smaller airports around.

It is rather funny that they did not use a more sophisticated method (like blurring, or just changing) of deception.

It does kind of draw the viewer to that area.

I seem to recall reading a number of tech stories (maybe because I live in the Bay Area where Google is) where institutions companies and government installations requested their facilities be blacked out.   I think even a few residents complained about their houses showing up on Google Streets.

There are over 600 prison camps in the United States, all fully operational and ready to receive prisoners. They are all staffed and even surrounded by full-time guards, but they are all empty. These camps are to be operated by FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency) should Martial Law need to be implemented in the United States.

Get Google Earth on and paste this in...
Code: [Select]
46 08 11.40 N 114 54 59.75 W

Then zoom out and look how remote it is!

Anyone worried?!

This IS a FEMA camp.

Its listed here:
http://www.flyingsnail.com/Dahbud/femaconcentrationcamps.html

IDAHO
Kooskia - 50 plus miles east, near Lolo Pass and Moose Creek, near a landing strip and a national forest. Unmanned.

ALASKA

Code: [Select]
62 08 03.30 N 141 10 43.03 W
Its either HAARP or the ULF repeater. Both extremely sensitive to the American military the latter moreso than the former. Mainly because if the people knew about it they would demand free wireless energy for everything. Currently it powers a Naval Super Carrier (unsure if there is anything else) which pretends to have a nuclear reactor onboard.

Additional features:

Notice the guard tower which is on the northwestern dot and the landing strip to the south.

Looks like it would be a good CIA Drug running dropoff point.

Also looks like it would be real hard to run away from there if you were imprisoned.

   FYI from wikipedia: 

Quote
NW Natural is Oregon’s largest natural gas utility. It serves customers in along the Oregon Coast, in the Willamette Valley, in the Columbia River Gorge, and in the Portland metropolitan area.[14] The company operates an underground natural gas storage facility near Mist, Oregon, in the Northern Oregon Coast Range utilizing depleted gas wells.[15] These former wells allow the company to purchase the gas when prices are lower and store until needed during peak consumption times during the winter.[15]

    It looks like the neighborhood contains large depleted gas wells which are now used to store natural gas,
sort of like an underground gas tank of sorts.   Probably some type of national security issue.
I would think they would cover up the thing to the NW though.   ???

  Instead I found a photo:
