If I read it correctly, image info is dated June 1, 2015
I am scrolling around on TerraServer, see if I can see anything else new.
The new hangar looks fairly complete.

OOoooh. I wonder what that will house. Any ideas on the scale of it? Is it larger than other hangers on the base?

The hangar looks to be about 40ft tall. If you really care to know the dimensions, you could download the panorama I shot last year, then compare the width of the building to buildings of known dimension using Google Earth. The panorama has the frame of the building.

What did you expect? Flying saucers and Bob Lazars rocket car?

What you have here is simply proof that Groom Lake is still active and in fact growing. This debunks all that conspiracy nonsense that nothing is happening at Groom Lake.

Sorry if you are bored by photoint, but that is how the game is played.

You can't find things that don't exist....flying saucers! Phht!

Have all of you missed the 7 hexagonal flying saucers hovering over the base. The people have already labelled them so you know where they are. It's in the photo so it's real! LOL. LOL.

By overlaying the Terraserver image into Google Earth, then measuring the hangar, it comes in at around 210x220. Not much smaller than Hangar 18 when looking at it in context of floor space. Hangar 18 is around 250x200 giving it a floor area of 50,000sqft, this new hangar come in at about 46,200sqft. I'd like to point out that this is give or take some feet, as measuring an overlay and satellite image in Google Earth will never be perfect. I'd also like to point out that I didn't include the hangar doors in the measurements, just the actual usable space. You can download the overlay at the link below.

My guess is still that something is to be based permanently at Groom, IMHO an ISR platform.

That would explain the relatively distant location of the hangar from the main base area. When multiple projects are operating at Area 51, with multiple contractors etc., and one aircraft leaves the hangar, all the other staff have to stay inside and not move. Basing an aircraft at the south end of the base may circumvent this requirement. It would also explain the large size of the hangar if it is going to be the permanent home of an aircraft and everything that comes with it.

An optionally piloted scale version of the plane with a single engine will be built in 2018, with test flights scheduled for 2023. If all goes to plan (funding hasn’t yet been secured by Lockheed Martin), a full-size SR-72 (about 100 feet long) will be built and tested by 2030.


Who knows, it could be a multitude of different craft. I think their indicated timeline is BS though, by a couple of years.

Another interesting but I found in the new imagery, is the perspective of which the imagery was taken. Past satellite images taken of Groom, were near 90° (looking straight down). This time around, it appears it's closer to an 85° angle, which gives us a better perspective of which hangars are open, or in this case, the existing large hangar on Southwest end of the base, and what is above the hangar door facing the base.

Anyone able to figure this out? Brownie points for you!










And a rotated view, to help better discern what I'm pointing out:




Perhaps that logo/symbol looks familiar to one of you.

I'm pretty sure it's this:


Although, it could just be pareidolia. i.e. bunnies in the clouds

This certainly entertaining, but you have to assume the base wouldn't provide much of a visual clue since the satellites of other nations most likely have better imagery for their own three letter agencies to use than the Terraserver data.

The structure on the side is a cat walk to get to the roof if anyone cares. At least as far as I can tell.

The weather over the base has been pretty poor for a few weeks. Smoke from the Lake Fire has entered the range and much of Nevada. A few days ago the spy can showed nothing but low clouds. They got half an inch on the Tikaboo rain gage.

This is all assuming the Tikaboo weather station reports honest weather rather than some fake data/imagery from the Groom boys to disuade tourists from climbing the peak.

Simple.They're not taken from exactly the same place each time.It's a matter of luck if they are taken from the same place,some might be even later and show more of the side of the hangar,while the next one might by chance be taken from directly overhead again.

Hey respect to you Geriac but are there people saying it's not being used? Why wouldn't they test fly the LRS-b there or other technology demonstrators?

The aerospace industry isn't decreasing but to save money the number of bases are, so why would you not expand a base that has a really good location for test flying?

I know I don't need to tell you this, it wasn't my point, I just can't believe people can only focus on UFO, the movie Independance Day and Bob Lazar. Groom Lake with its runway and weather and lack of prying eyes makes an awesome facility and very secure from terrorists at the lowest level!

There's A LOT of people on these forums that will tell you you're a fool for hauling your arse all the way up Tikaboo because everyone knows about Area 51 now so surely the all powerful illuminati will have moved the Grey autopsies somewhere else


Contrary to this there are plenty of informed people who know for a fact that 737-fulls of staff are still flying out to Groom on a daily basis, working on the cutting edge of technology. This is because for all everyone knows about Area 51, there hasn't been a single leak in decades as far as I'm aware. Night-flights and the sheer remoteness of the site still provide pretty much cast iron security. Knowing that Area 51 exists is very very different to knowing what goes on behind the hangar doors!

Well I don't believe in Lazar and am sceptical about Roswell but I would bet my house the Right Stuff are still flying some crazy ass technology out of Groom.

I'm a sculpturer of steel and one of my biggest contracts it to supply groom lake with a constant supply of balls of Steel, so it must be true!

Certainly so, but whatever is on the front of that hangar, is still an additional bit of info the general public (us), weren't privy to, prior to this latest imagery.. And well, we still don't know what it says or is of, yet.. But that's he point of my post!
heh

Perhaps Shadowhawk, Boomer, or Zaph could chime in, if they've seen a similar logo or symbol before, that they could maybe tie into whatever this may be?
