I have access to satellite data that is updated 3 times a day.
When I get in the office in the morning I’ll check those coordinates and send you some screen shots from what it looked like today


Awesome.. Thanks

Rotating the direction in google earth while zoomed in on the 22 items that look like they are sticking out of the ice is weird. They almost look like communication towers and given the way the shadows look and the way the snow/ice disturbance is the same there is something definitely sticking up out of the ground.

No idea and so far no one else has come up with an answer either. For some reason there are 4 images (closeups) I took that are not uploading properly.


Too large? There's a max file size.

heh. you read my mind with that one. when watching the video, this popped into my head immediately





Especially this image which has what looks like blood everywhere...



wtf?


I have to type an LOL here. Hate it but here it's appropriate. The guy in the video zooms in on the red areas and says:

"I know my shades of red, and this is about as disturbing shade of red I've seen."

LOL! Right? There are a thousand explanations on what that red color could be, before we go suggesting mass blood spillage.

And anyway, aren't these far-off satellite pictures notorious for being pixelated and looking pretty much nothing like whatever it is on the ground? Can we even trust the colors we're getting on GOOGLE EARTH?

I just have a feeling that some mass bloody runway somewhere, even in Antarctica, isn't going to be left for the rubes to view at their leisure on Google Earth.

But, XCATH! I'm impressed! XCATH with a little weirdness thread- nice! I see you in a whole new light now.

No it was smaller than the other pics I uploaded. I even changed the file type from jpg to png and it wouldnt take. I have had this issue before so not sure whats up.

The images in question from the 2013 image just close ups of the landing strip area and the anomaly area.

Pretty sure that looks exactly like an aerial shot of the final scene from The Thing (1982).

DONT LET IT ESCAPE!!!!

lol thanks..

The red comment was goofy. I just looked beyond it. I am curious as to what it is though. Dye to mark the area, dye for the fuel (here in the states we use dye to denote between fuel for agriculture use only and normal use).

I found it weird and since it had enough info to find it on google earth and confirm what the guy was seeing I opted to branch out a bit lol.

lol!

I was thinking maybe some kind of arctic fuel additive, or some kind of deicing chemicals.

Looks like a mess, whatever it is.

Blood hasn't been ruled out yet....

Most dyed diesel, sold in the U.S., comes with a red coloring and is not usually available for purchase by the public. However, you may occasionally see this dyed gasoline at a fuel station. By law, this dyed gas is only for use in off-road vehicles, such as farm tractors, heavy construction equipment, and generators. Because it is not supposed to be used for on-road vehicles, this fuel is not taxed within the United States.

Diesel that is designated for use by U.S. government vehicles is dyed blue instead of red. This color variation helps to keep clear fuel used by the general public separate from the gas used by government on-road vehicles.

So yes the red may be most likely a dyed diesel spill.

This appears to be Kohnen Station.

ETA:

Kohnen Station


Kohnen-Station is a German summer-only polar research station in the Antarctic, able to accommodate up to 20 people. It is named after the geophysicist Heinz Kohnen (1938–1997), who was for a long time the head of logistics at the Alfred Wegener Institute.

The station opened on January 11, 2001, in Dronning Maud Land. The station is located at 75°00'S, 00°04'E, and 2892 m above sea level. It is located 757 km southeast of Neumayer-Station III, which lies on the Ekstrom Ice Shelf and provides logistics and administration for Kohnen-Station. Like the United Kingdom's Halley V station, the base is built on steel legs allowing the station to be jacked up as the height of the snow surface increases.

The station contains a radio room, a mess room, a kitchen, bathrooms, two bedrooms, a snow melter, a store, a workshop, and a power plant (100 kW). It is supplied by a convoy of 6 towing vehicles, which carry up to 20 tons each, and 17 sledges. The base is resupplied twice each year, with up to 6 sledge trains at a time. This traverse takes 9–14 days.[1]

Kohnen station is the logistic base for the ice coring project in Dronning Maud Land, the European Project for Ice Coring in Antarctica (EPICA). A core was also drilled at Kohnen station.[2]

The most up to date image for the area in question was taken in 2016. If I load up google earth, even though it is Sep 1 2018, the image I am seeing of the area was the image from 2016.

Someone else suggested that but the coordinates of the base didnt line up with the image. Also given the 2016 image I am not seeing anything that is cargo container shaped nor on stilts.

Unless I am missing something.


With the added info you are correct.

Mystery solved.

Thanks for helping out man. I appreciate it.

No problem. I looked up Queen Maud Land stations for a list and found this picture:



Kohnen looked about right so I checked out the Wikipedia page and saw the coordinates. If you look at this image again:



I think what is seen there is the station itself with the sun hitting it at very oblique angle so that it's casting a very long shadow.

If you look closely at the shadow, you can make out the gaps between the buildings and the hoist. What looks like three white dashes in a line (right side of feature) would be snow on the roofs.

The line of features below I would assume are from ice core drilling.

Don't know, it's the image from the OP. Supposedly from 2013

Intriguing isn't it?


I found it on the new version of good earth. Just regualr google earth not the pro version using the coordinates from the OP.

Great! So we're looking at is the logistic base for a European ice coring project where there was a mass murder out on the ice- not inside any of the buildings- and the blood STILL hasn't been cleaned up.

Someone needs to tell the guy in the video that he was right, he DOES know his shades of red.
