Never really read much on the atoll until now, I knew it was used for military purposes, but not much more than that.
This is what I learned:
The atoll is no longer under control of the US Navy, it is controlled now by United States Fish and Wildlife Service of the Department of the Interior
as part of the Pacific Remote Islands Marine National Monument. President Bush reclassified it in 2009.
The size of the atoll has increased from its original size through coral dredging to make room for the naval infrastructure. (This would for the
seemingly man-made features shown in the video, they ARE man made.)
As far as the circular disk, no clue what that could be, but it is probably something related to the dredging or perhaps it is a canister left over
frm the chemical weapons incineration that occurred there in 2003.
for not being blacked out today.
