I'm new to this google earth thing... if you adjust the tilt they look more like craters than mounds.... does anyone know what these are??? I'm really interested now. Thanks for getting me interested in google earth mates.

I'm sure this has been posted many many times but I don't think anyone ever knew 100% what it was. It's perfectly aligned with the satellite though, the point of the triangle is facing North, therefore it could be used to aligne satellites, no?

you may have to decrease zoom to see them good. Weird.

That's the Nevada Test Site. If you turn on the "Google Earth Community" layers you can see the names of each crater. If you turn the "Earthquakes" layer on you can see lots of earthquakes too.

Don't know if anyone brought this up yet, there is another one at this location

N 37.6661 , W 116.0282

Also, the other one has a 2 at the top of the outer circle, and the one I found has a 3, but noone has found a formation with a 1 on it

Sorry guys, just a little sugestion (I don't mean it in a bad way). Next time when you post something through imageshack, check the option for postin the link of the pic coz the one you've posted is to small and can't be enlarged. I've tried and automatically jumped me to imageshack main page. I've seen this thing different time from posters, so just be careful to post the link that gives you the option to resize the image.
Thank you.

The triangle/circles feature is one of the old targets in the Tonopah Test Range. This is the area where the external fuel tanks for the X-15A-2 were dropped during its record speed run in October 1967, but the targets date back to World War II.

For some reason these targets are among the most often "discovered" Google Earth land feature by UFO/Secret Base enthusiasts. The only feature that seems to cause more excitement are the circular fields at Penoyer Farms near Rachel, Nevada. The third most often "discovered" feature seems to be the Slater Lake recreation area north of Groom Lake. These features have been discussed ad nauseum on ATS.

Most likely simulation of SA-2 battallion firing post - such a structure was very usual, six launch pads in the hexagon and radars/command station in the center. Widely used in Vietnam and everywhere else where the SA-2 was deployed. the star is created by service roads serving for reload trucks etc.

EDIT: Been already discussed HERE: www.abovetopsecret.com...

It is the decimal representation of the coordinates.

For example, 37.6661 its the same as 37º39'58.78''.

In Google Earth it can be change in the menu "Tools", sub-menu "Options" and then in the "View" tab, inside the frame "Rendering", int the option "Lat/Lon" you can change between "Degrees, Minutes, Seconds" and "Degrees".
