Anyone have a line on this place?



It's in the middle of the Pacific (and I do mean MIDDLE; it's like exactly between Australia and South America) at:

17'18'00'S, 145'39'54'W

It's about 10 miles long and one wide.

I haven't found it on a map yet; unfortunately (I suppose) I don't do Windows, so I can't get to the newest mapping stuff.

TIA

I'm looking at that area in Google Earth, there's nothing there?

It sure does look like the island from Lost though, and the plane did take off from Australia, so..

There's gotta still be unmapped islands out there. Too many small pieces of land exist in the oceans. However, I would be interested to know what it is exactly now that I saw it.

Google Earth doesn't help much.

I left the gridline on for the pic to show it's probably the same one.




According to Google, the yellow bit up at the top is a road so someone must be there, but it won't say a name!

Hmmm...

Here's the deal: this little fly-speck has been the subject of at least 41 images on 20-some Corona missions over at least 2 decades. I really don't think the CIA needed maps that were THAT good. The spooks were looking for something.

This is from a stero pair at slightly higher seolution.



There is something on the beach, something that doesn't show on other frames. It the size of a huntchback whale -- maybe it is a beached whale, but there's no rotting carcase on later images That's a pretty substantial coral reef out there, so I don't think it would be a ship, unless it were thrown there by a typhoon.

Now the question is, "Is it worth 113 USD to get a better look?", because that's what it would cost to order the set in 1-meter resolution.

If it has been the target of so many Corona missions, and that it is in the Pacific, may I suggest that it is the site of nuclear testing?

From these images, I can't see any blast marks, but the US, France & the UK all did testing in the Pacific.

Just a guess

Hi,

Is is not just one of the North Mariana Islands? They are a chain of islands under the protection of the U.S. Guam (probrably one of America's most important bases is just south of here, so it makes sense that the CIA keep an eye or two on neighbouring islands?

Cheers

Robbie

Its called Anaa.

It is in the Tuamotu Islands of French Polynesia. It has an Airport( Anaa -size unknown)

Small in size with no reef pass, this atoll was the birthplace of the royal Pomare family and was also renowned in days gone by for its fierce conquering warriors.

Since those times the island has become more friendly and now lives at the slow pace of the traditional activities of fishing and coprah making around the village of Tukuhora.

What's amazing is how remote it is... When I need a break from the world, I'm going there!!

It must be an interesting experience to literally be in the middle of no where.

Thanks! With that I was able to locate some decent maps of the island. It seems the object was sitting on or hovering over the airstrip. I'll let you know if I come up with anything else.

Anyone heard anything to verify this?

Overheard Conversation at Bullfeathers two years ago

Two men in black suits sharing a bottle talking about a small group of U.S. territorial islands. Summary of the conversation.

Plan to utilize the northern most islands of the Marianas islands

- The islands of Uracas or Farallon de Pajaros, Maug and Asuncion meet all the requirements to continue with the project. They are remote, uninhabited, and uniquely, owned by us.
- Location is within the earth’s magnetic flux zone, similar in nature to the requirements of the 1940 geographical location.
- The islands are seldom called on, even by fishermen.

To secure the islands for our operational needs we intend to acquire them under the guise of a Pew Charitable Trusts and designate of the area as the “Mariana Trench Marine National Monument”

We are prepared to fund a lobby group, solicit tree hugger volunteers to join the group, promoting the environmental benefits of setting this area aside from visitations from the rest of world.

To be sure there is no army stronger and more prolific than those that carry the save the whale flag. We shall utilize this force to our benefit; convince any local indigenous group of the wise decision to simply just give us the area. There is no need for glass beads or smallpox laden blankets anymore as long as we have the Greenies on our side.

Suggest we advise the President, make the necessary resource allocations and send this to planning for implementation.


I can tell you that this is happing today. Saipan island is awash with political activist types bent on support to remove a huge part of the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana islands and make it disappear from the map. All for what real purpose?

there's a ton of little island chains and islets all over the pacific. especially around fiji. 300+.

a lot of them are privately owned. sure would be a great way of life.
good call on anaa.
