Please could someone elaborate on the Israeli connection? Are debunkers saying that the OP video maker is an agent for Israel?
(Didn't get up early enough to read all the deleted posts so not really sure what direction this thread was taking but you all will let me know: are we looking for enemy tankers this morning or are we looking at why Google would need to put fake clouds over an unnamed island?)

why would'nt the two Islands be a perfect base for GEO ENGINEERING EXPERIMNENTS
Because of the altitude of the stratosphere at those latitudes

The clouds were covering parts of Ascension Island, not an entire island nearby.
But not any of the military bases or radar facilities had cloud cover..
That's why we're calling it absurd to leap to such conclusions and trying to make the place sound more sinister than it really is.

Look at 2:36 in the OP video. On the right is Ascension and on the lower left, nearer to Brazil, is the unnamed island with the fake clouds in some places. On the zoom-in it shows that it is one of several islands in this area and the island in question is off near the top left of the group at 2:49. At 3:01 you can see what the video author is calling 'obscurements' and which look like clouds to a cursory glance but are actually a flat white.
A lot of people on ATS and other sites scroll Google Earth looking for anomalies. When they are brought to our attention, like in the OP video, we look to see what there is to it. In this case, imo, there is something to look at. Google, though, presents static images taken, often, some years earlier. This doesn't help with what's there now but also doesn't negate that, back then, something was hidden.
A VORTAC is a navigational aid for aircraft pilots consisting of a co-located VHF omnidirectional range (VOR) beacon and a tactical air navigation system (TACAN) beacon. Both types of beacons provide pilots azimuth information, but the VOR system is generally used by civil aircraft and the TACAN system by military aircraft.
Detachment 2, Ascension Auxilary Air Field
The primary mission of Det 2, 45th Operations Group, is to provide telemetry and radar tracking data to support space launches out of the Eastern Range.
When not supporting its primary mission, the unit has the secondary mission of providing radar tracking data for locating and cataloging space objects in
support of the United States Space Command Space Surveillance Network.
A second function Detachment 2 fulfills for shuttle support is providing orbital tracking via Radar 12.15. Radar 12.15 at Ascension Island is the only equatorial sensor in the Western Hemisphere, and it is capable of tracking over 200 objects per day. For NASA support specifically, Radar 12.15 is tasked with tracking the International Space Station seven days in advance of a shuttle launch to assist in refining the launch time. In addition, Radar 12.15 may be tasked to track the shuttle while in orbit or during docking and undocking from the Space Station.
In the picture above, if you look carefully you can see three lines of pipe. The dark cast iron one carried water down under gravity from the mountain, and put in place in the mid 19th century by the marines and lasted about 100 years . The pale turquoise one, i.e. the lower of the two coloured ones was built in the 60's to carry water up to two boats from the desalinisation unit at the BBC power station at English bay, and the blue top one is a replacement for the turquoise one which is now giving problems. So that makes the score, Marines 1 BBC 0 , when it comes to constructing pipelines.
One of eight directional rotatable log periodic antennas maintained by the 55th Strategic Communications Squadron near Elkhorn, Neb., stands tall behind a cornfield.
Spread out over 386 acres just outside of Elkhorn, with an additional 156 acres in Scribner, Neb., the communications site features 32 antennas. This includes 15 high frequency, eight directional rotatable log periodic and nine omni directional antennas.
