According to the Google Earth community, the strange patterns on the ground are miltary in origin, possibly associated with the Nellis base and / or weapon testing. Most of the "UFOs" on Google Earth are artifacts produced by the imaging systems.



What I'm wondering is who it was threw a roll of toilet paper or something into the trees in a corner of Highgate Woods in North London, England...

(you'll have to zoom right in).

Ahah! I found Burning Man! ...Or... what -would- be Black Rock City from time to time. Dunno what time of the year these shots were taken-- it's pretty high detail, and there's no city, but there ARE some people and vehicles present. Was it in the middle of being set up perhaps??

What the heck are these funky round black things? Looks just like the crops a bit to the southwest, but... black!

Meteor Crater in Arizona, it's too bad the resolution isn't better.

36 5'44.29"N, 11510'30.96"W
The Luxor pyramid in Vegas! It's so shiny!

5123'20.55"N, 30 5'55.64"E
Chernobyl (that big gray thing, I believe, is the Sarcophagus. there's a cooling tower to the lower right also. If you zoom out to be able to fit Yurevichi in the north and Bazar in the south, notice the spreading patterns of brown and dark green that fan to the northwest and south of the reactors-- that's the irradiated Dead Zone. Notice also that the reactor itself is directly beside the major river that flows directly through Kiev.)

Cooling tower of the Trojan nuclear power plant in Oregon. Decommissioned in 93.
