If not, I remember seeing this picture posted on Tool's website a while ago. Allegedly, Adam and friends took a trip and saw this from their plane. Of course, Blair might be lying again.

It's an SA-2 site. That's the control building in the center. Here's the original recon photo of it from the 26 Aug 1962.
The U-2 missions through 5 September revealed a disproportionate buildup of SA-2 launch sites in western Cuba. One school of thought contended that this deployment pattern was not particularly worrisome, given that Havana and the larger part of the Cuban population were in that region. Further, most of the sites were along Cuba's periphery, where one might expect such missiles arrayed in a national airdefense network.

Please enlighten me,
I have seen many of these patterns in various places
(AREA 51, Tonapah, air bases)
my question is this? what are all the little circles for? they seem to be there for a reason (the small ones within random areas of the star)
they look a bit like bomb craters
then there is the same patterns in target zones of missle ranges...
are they just former installations that are now targets? or practice?
also, I am curious... some of those sam sites are almost invisible from above...
while some might as well have red circles painted on them...
what would be the strategic benefit of having a SAM site that is visible from Mars? rather than a hidden one?
are they that easy to find no matter how well hidden, so hiding them is useless?
