Image is not working. Hmm.

Those two structures to the left of the pyramid are clearly entrances to an underground bunker/base. The structure on the middle of the picture has a large ramp leading down, and the other structure to the left has 2 tunnel-like entrances.

maybe our goverment is planning to invade egypt soon and is trying to figure out how to use the pyramids as somekind of bunker or missle silo....or maybe they think they can trick the aliens into thinking there entering the pyramids og egypt....lol sorry that last line was a joke but the missle silo stuff was not.....

Just in case no-one had quite noticed yet, but the pyramid shown here is 3 sided. Your traditional pyramid (say Egyptian, Aztec, the ones referred to as masonic symbols) has 4 sides.

That said, I don't have an educated guess as to what it could be... However it is not some sort of symbolic design.

I'm wondering about photoshoppage.

The shadows in the craters/depressions, and the north-south buildings, all point up (north?) and very slightly west. But the shadows on the pyramid don't point west at all. And the left face fo the pyramid is due north-south (or at least "up"). But the shadow is only on the right side of the structure.

It's pretty much a subjective interpretation of the shadows, tho.


I could see building an artificial hill as a reference point or benchmark. Might be important for range-finding or nap-of-earth issues, particularly at night.

If you just used a natural hill, then you might key on the wrong hill by mistake. Of course it doesn't look like there are any hills anywhere else.

just a few thoughts.

How would that coincide with the structures seen here?


This is not a target area, it's the Nevada Test Site underground nuke range.

Nevada Test Site
So if you see a structure there you can be fairly certain that something's going to get nuked.. To the west of the pyramid are things which look to me to be arranged like the detectors in an accelerator experiment. There were numerous X-ray experiments there in the recent past. So, yeah, maybe they're just storing hand-granades

Mystery solved. The area with the three-sided pyramid is Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory's Big Explosives Experimental Facility (BEEF) in Area 4 of the Department of Energy's Nevada Test Site.

The BEEF is a hydrodynamic testing facility, located about 95 miles northwest of Las Vegas and about 12 miles east of the Test Site's central Control Point. The need for the BEEF site originated when, due to community encroachment near the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) facility in Livermore, California, DOE was no longer allowed to perform large high explosive experiments at the facility's Site 300, Shaped Charge Scaling Project.

Therefore looking at the NTS as a location to continue to perform these large high explosive experiments, two earth-covered, two-foot thick steel reinforced concrete bunkers, built to monitor atmospheric tests at Yucca Flat in the 1950s, were located and found to be ideally configured. The facility consists of a control bunker, a camera bunker, a gravel firing table, and associated control and diagnostic systems.

The facility has conducted conventional high-explosives experiments using a testbed that provides sophisticated diagnostics such as high-speed optics and x-ray radiography on the firing table, while operating personnel are present in the bunker. The WATUSI experiment at the BEEF in September 2002 sought to show that existing seismic and infrasound sensors at the Test Site and across the western U.S. that were used in the days of underground nuclear testing still can detect and characterize explosions accurately. The yield of the experiment was equivalent to approximately 37,000 pounds of TNT (37 kilotons).

Good find! Thanks for clarifying that for me. I'll keep searching Google Earth for more cool stuff.

Just to say, Haven't you noticed that it has a flat top on it? That doesn't seem usual.

I always thought pyramids had 4 sides, not three.......


Edit: okay someone else has already pointed that out.....(serve me right for not reading every post before commenting :@@

What the heck is a pyamid doing in the middle of the desert?
Can anyone see Automobiles anywhere around this site?
I can't see any.

judging from the shadows...it looks concave. like an upside down pyramid.

Christ people, he explained it. End of story. Quit buggering over something of no importance.

It's interesting that this facility is costing taxpayers approximately $500,000 a year just to upkeep, not to mention the $1.3 Million we could have saved by only using it when needed. From what the report says, it shouldn't have been used the majority of the times it was used, because most of the tests conducted were compatible with other testing facilities, therefore almost eliminating the need for such a high expense rate.
