Thank you! So now we have Nuclear missile silos in an artificial forest area where water is the primary issue!

How can anyone even think this is anything other than some form of water equipment?

underground water storage tanks to
irrigate the plant growth nearby.

I agree this is some type of irraigation system, notice the fields of vegitation to the north west. Looks like it may be some kind of collection unit as well. I bet this system collects what little water is trapped below the surface, filters, collects and boosts the water with plant nutes. Not silos for nukes sorry, they are way to big 400 feet or so for a no.

Perhaps we are looking at the wrong thing...
...the grid pattern between the domes is extremely regular...
...could it be the panels of a huge ship covered with sand as a disguise...
...and the domes are just turrets protruding above this outer skin?

Just kidding...of course it is part of an irrigation system (or aliens growing crops)

I can't believe some of you people are even debating the dome crater issue. I know sight is objective and People see what they want as opposed to what's there. But come on. How are we supposed to take your posts seriously if you can't figure out something as basic as shadows. For crying out loud it's been explained by numerous posters that it's a dome. There have been illustration to help you understand this obvious point.

Not trying to be mean but if you can't grasp a basic concept like the direction of light and shadow. Maybe this isn't the forum for you. Might want to try below top secret and work your way up here. It's just basic common sense with observation. If you can't grasp that. I don't know how you manage to function in the real world. It's actually kind of scary.

Trust me it's a dome. Get over it.

Not sure if this has already been mentioned but my common sense would tell me that if this structure sank into the ground the sand would of engulfed it by now, thus it is raised - furthermore the shaw from the central structure matches that of a raised object due to the upper left shadow of the so called silo...then again im no expert

Edit: I take it this has been mentioned several times...but just to clarify - dome!

The 3 contractors who are building that area have nothing to do with defense contracting. They are all civil engineering and communications engineering companies.

People will make drama when they want drama. I will admit if I just randomly came across those while looking for something "suspicious" on google earth I would be interested.

And I would like to say to people, Google Earth images can be as much as 4 years old. Never rely on just google earth. Bing maps and Globalis should also be used.

Globalis has a "mineral and mining" filter. If you see something really odd in google earth or bing, check Globalis mining layer and if it is saturated then the weird stuff you are seeing is probably current or past mining operations.

Yeah, another good point. But that sand looks fairly recent. They probably have to clean it off on a fairly regular basis.

The desert is very changing, you cannot use sand as a landmark lol.. The wind will blow the sand off those naturally.

That is another reason why it is elevated not depressed into the ground.

edit on 11-5-2011 by zookey because: (no reason given)

Do you need glasses mate?

These are clearly depressed into the ground, and not "Domes" , They are reversed domes, (concave).
Not convex.
I can't even fathom how one could not see this.
The are definitely shaped like a "u", and not an "n".

Oh I am sorry
But when i log into ATS I like to read whats on the home page I am not going to search for old threads on a topic
that is being talked about on the home page

What is the point when we have heros here at ATS that will tell us "This has been done before" or "you can find it all here" but all they are showing is a dead thread how are people ment to talk to other like minded people when a thread is dead

Try this next time

Hi ATS'ers
There is plenty of info on this topic in this thread here (insert link)

Instead of the old look at me im a ATS vetran please use your search funtion
and read ALL the dead threads before you talk to anyone about a topic THAT IS ON THE HOME PAGE

The thread did not make it to the home page by luck or chance people want to talk about to so let them
got to love the ATS Nazi's

Dude, the links i posted go to this same thread, talk about not reading properly

Again: the answer to what these domes are has already been posted on this thread several times, i linked to some of the posts where it was explained, people are NOT reading the thread, otherwise you would have found the same posts as i did and if you had read them and clicked on the links, you probably would have found the same information that clearly explains what those domes are..

posted on May, 11 2011 @ 08:08 PM
The domes are raised piles of sand covered with concrete
This is a high wind area(called the windy desert for a reason) and the concrete cover keeps down erosion and stabilizes to mound. it also keeps down dune formation

The smaller structure on top is a large water tank for agriculture water storage.

Hi ATSers. S+F

When I looked at the photos, what stood out was the road in each one circling into them. I'm no structural engineer but when I looked at the big photo showing the four, the shape was a retangle. It then dawned on me about the Phil Scheider, interview.
He said when building an underground base, drill/dig four holes/points to the depth you need and place exsplosives in each. You basicaly set of the right amount of exsplosive in each hole and then take it from there.

I think its an underground base and these are points of entry. "It's just my guess"

Here's a link on ATS about (Phil Scheider, RIP)

All I could think those could be are some Ventilation? Maybe the car's/trucks coming out of them are lift elevators, To a under society? Since it is in the desert. And then again Hitler made the Biggest Under ground tunnel, So why cant the Arabs make the Biggest underground Society?

If it went down it would be filled with sand.

That and the sun - shining from the south - is illuminating the south side. They stick up out of the ground.

seriously did you just say with the sun shining from the south? The sun always rises in the east and sets in the west.. what planet are you referring to?

if u picture the sun setting in the west (to the left of the page), you can see how the shadows line up a CRATER not a Dome. Sunny on the right/ Shade on the left. Also It would take alot of land/earth to build a ramp to drive cars up, but it would be easier to just dig down.

OMG!! Seriously? Have you ever heard of the term southern exposure?

My initial thoughts were that these structures were indeed concave, but as previous posters have pointed out the shadows indicate otherwise, these structures whatever they are are definately convex.
If they were concave they would be full of sand. As far as the grid formation goes it is a mystery to me.

They're probably just for irrigation, possibly using desalinated water. If you zoom out and look in the northwest corner, all the grids have crops, which is probably what the rest of the grids will be used for as well.

I'm still sticking to my original post, probably used for irrigation for the crops that are going to be grown in the grid similar to other farming methods all over the world. Please zoom out and realize that in the northwest corner of the grid area there are already crops, possibly an orchard planted. If you also zoom out further, you'll find that this area is close to the shore of the Gulf of Oman, which may be the source of the water for the irrigation. Also, the structure is obviously a dome, so please realize from the shadows that it's a dome. WE'RE PAST IT BEING A DOME AND NOT A CRATER!! Just my take on it.

May-be this area is being made ready for the future after one of the many other threads becomes reality! Is there also not towns/cities in China vacant and ready to go? Has this area been predicted as a safe area in the future? Maybe can be sustainable if covered by the sea? Looks like thjs country has advanced thinking compared to some!! Cheers

Interesting concept there, can you explain to me what types of crops they may be able to successfully grow in the sands? Cactus?

posted on May, 11 2011 @ 08:29 PM
Couldn't read them all but..are missile silos a possibility?

I can't see them being missiles because you would think they would have covered them up better.

there are similar bunker type comlexes out there in AZ

but not so sophisticted as the images you've posted...

the reinforced buildings all within a larger complex are where daring souls that want hazardous duty pay work at packing air-bags that go into automobiles...
there a several deaths each month, (as the pressurized air bags explode without warning)
)but the officials try to keep all the fatalities very low-key...
and i've never heard of a lack of replacement workers.

maybe the below ground level buildings out there in the missle east are of a similar operation...
assembling air-bags, bomb fuses, or other hazardous things we take for granted...
