Further to my earlier post I have found yet another triangular aircraft on another satellite image. This time I have circled in red for ease of viewing. Anyone have any thoughts on this i.e. what is could be?

Similar profile to a HL-10, otherwise no idea.

waynos, forgive my ignorance but what's the HL-10?

No worries, sorry for being so 'mysterious'


It was a lifting body research vehicle in the 1960's. I'm not saying thats what your image showed, just that it reminds me of it.

Could be a venture star prototype?

and i'll say it first, could it be the Aurora/A-17/etc?


good find

I love how now...satellite Images of Groom Lake with any specks of black on them..BAM!! all the sudden its Aurora and every other supposed black project!!!

Honestly...do you think the people at Groom Lake..who know full well of the presence of satellites overhead are just going to leave something like that out in the open!???

b777pilot - I did not suggest for one moment is was Aurora all I am doing is bringing this to peoples attention for their comment / thoughts. I am not jumping to any conclusions..

This might actually be a project that has been lightly revealed to the public already, the X-32. Here are some pictures of it. Nice find by the way

Well my hyperactive imagination sees a possible oilstain, group of people talking or strangely situated group of shrubs. I would be interested in seeing a GENUINE enhancement however. And possibly a reversal of the light and shadow.

Whatever it is, its only 20-30 ft long and since its not under cover it can't be too classified.

I didnt specifically say it was Aurora..
I said
" its Aurora and every other supposed black project!"

Im of course a terrible cynic and as I said in my previous post....
The people at Groom Lake..Know of satellights above...I highly dobut they would leave a supposed "black project" out in the dead open...

Classified projects do have various levels of classifications i.e. the highest level, let say a Lockheed aircraft will only be seen by Lockheed project staff when flying at Groom all other emplyees of 'other' companies will be told to go indoors until the craft has departed or landed and hangered. Others projects can still be classified but openly seen by all at Groom Lake.

Secrecy is pretty hard to come by these days. Im pretty sure that with over 400 sattellites in orbit at this very second, it would be pretty hard to secure anything. 20% of them being spy satellites.

The X-32 has not only been revealed it's been cancelled - it is in fact the now cancelled Boeing entry into the Joint Strike Fighter competition. Lockheed won with the X-35 aka the F-35 JSF.
There is no reason to develop both the 32 & the 35 as their missions are identical -

hard to tell from the pic this could just be an F-117A - its got the triangular shape and the edges are too blurry to make any real id

f-117a top view

but then again - maybe not, but it is black and triangular

1. The planes have to fly SOMETIME.
2. With todays technology it makes no difference to whether you bring it out during the day or night, either optics or radar is going to get a photo of it.
3. Its possible to build stealth spy satellites (and dont think the US or other governments havent...)
4. Its possible to retarget/retask satellites so they can be over the target before they are supposed to be
5. Planes other than 'black' projects regularly fly into and outof Groom Lake, it isnt solely for the top end of the black spectrum

Personally, its probably the X-47 or something similiar.

The 'shape' is also present on your other post "TR3A on Groom Lake's Runway?? Link to Picture". Do you know how far apart in time these shots are?

Dew, I must be loosing it now as even I can't see it on the earlier picture. I will try to find the dates of each image.

Blackwatcher - Its opposite the A-12 hangers, about halfway up the colour image (great pic btw!). I've just noticed the colour pic is dated July '03 (unless that's just the © date?) , I think the b&w is from Apr '02. Guess it's been there a while if those dates are correct!
