5 Strange Places That Are Blacked Out By Google Maps

It’s probably safe to say that Google Maps is one of the greatest technological innovations of the last 10 years. With just a few clicks, you can view any place on the face of the Earth.

Well, almost any place.

There are some areas of Google Maps that, for one reason or another, are concealed or obscured in some very obvious ways. Here are the five most suspicious-looking ones…

1. Junction Ranch, CA

Google Maps

Junction Ranch is in the middle of California’s Mohave Desert. There lies a mysterious airstrip…some believe it’s part of the China Lake proving grounds, which is an air force testing location for drones. While that’s suspicious in and of itself, even weirder is that only parts of the base are obscured from Google Maps. When you zoom in on the base’s location, there are parts of buildings intentionally scratched out. What’s going on down there?

2. Sandy Island

Google Maps

Sandy Island was discovered by Captain Cook during his explorations of and around Australia in the late 1700s. However, despite the island being seen on maps for the last 200 years, the area where Sandy Island is supposedly located is mysteriously blurred out on Google Maps. Something fishy is going on there.

3. Thule Air Base, Greenland

Google Maps

During the Cold War, the U.S. had B-52 bombers carrying nuclear weapons on a regular basis. This strategy was supposed to serve as a deterrent to the Soviets. However, accidents happen and in 1968 a plane carrying a nuclear payload crashed while taking off from Thule Air Base in Greenland. During the crash, the nuclear weapon was said to have released a significant amount of radiation into the surrounding environment. The area of the crash is still blurred out on Google.

4. Kangtega, Nepal

Google Maps

This mysterious area in the Himalayan Mountains is completely blacked out on Google Maps. While the potential reasons why it’s blocked range from a military base to Nazi UFOs, it’s unlikely that we’ll ever know the full story. That is, unless you want to hike up all 22,000 feet to find out.

5. Siberia, Russia

Google Maps

Russia’s vast northern forests are seemingly a hotbed of paranormal and generally unexplained activity. While most of us wouldn’t bother looking at a forest on Google Maps, the Russian government isn’t taking any chances. Deep in the Siberian wilderness is an area of land that from far away looks normal…however, when you look closer, it’s very obviously copied and pasted from another place. The geography just doesn’t synch up. So that begs the question, what’s going on here?

Check out a video discussing all five of these places.

Well, those are pretty darned mysterious. I wonder if Google is working in league with some evil forces in the world to cover these sites up, or if something else entirely is at play.

This Guy’s Boss Has A Heaven’s Gate Death Shroud In The Office…Normal

For anyone old enough to remember, the story of the Heaven’s Gate religious organization is more than a little disturbing. To refresh your memory, Heaven’s Gate is what many would consider to be a religious suicide cult. Its members believed that Earth was on the verge of being destroyed, and that humanity’s only chance for survival was to escape to a hidden alien ship that was conveniently lurking behind the moon.

However, escape in this case didn’t mean physical escape, but spiritual escape. In 1997, all 39 members of the organization committed suicide at their headquarters in San Diego, California.

In the months that followed the mass suicide, the media became obsessed with the group and its ideology. For some, the constant coverage translated into a lifelong fascination.

Pieces of Heaven’s Gate memorabilia, such as this authentic Heaven’s Gate uniform, are rare finds, so they always fetch high prices. This particular piece currently resides in Redditor fracasfoam‘s office.

Apparently, his boss likes to collect random (and extremely morbid) things.

As a connoisseur of creepiness myself, I’d be very interested to know just how much that uniform cost. I wonder if the fact that someone died in it brings the value up or down.

What Happened When She Saw This UFO Might Be A Coincidence, But What If It’s Not?

UFOs are known for doing a few things when they’re spotted by humans. They sometimes cause blackouts and make cars start all by themselves, but they don’t usually break cameras.

But this might be a new tactic if the latest news out of Brazil is true. A woman there claims that the camera on her smartphone mysteriously broke after she accidentally snapped a startling picture of a UFO.

The woman said that she was watching a soccer game in the city of Marmelo when she got bored and started taking pictures of the scenery around her. That’s when she caught this UFO cruising through the sky.

According to the woman, she didn’t actually see the UFO at first. But after snapping the picture, her smartphone suddenly turned off and there was a bright spot on the screen where the UFO had been.

Those who have seen the photo believe that it might be the same UFO that was spotted in La Paz, Bolivia, on December 6, 2015.

You can see the UFO from that Bolivian sighting in the video below.

If UFOs are now going around and breaking people’s cameras, I think we might have a bigger problem on our hands than we originally thought.

Military Aircraft Are Spotted Guiding an Apparent UFO. Fact or Fiction?

Even if you don’t believe in UFOs, the footage you’re about to see is hard to ignore. Two military aircraft or drones were seen guiding another aircraft. Some believe this to be a possible alien craft, but it is for certain a UFO (an “unidentified flying object”). It’s strange…but what do you think it is?

No matter what you believe, this is strange footage.

What They Found In The Middle Of The Desert Using Google Earth Is Incredibly Freaky

Google Earth is probably the best thing to happen to alien hunting in the last 100 years. With a simple click of the mouse, users can explore far-flung places and look for signs of alien activity across the globe.

There’s usually not much to be found, but every once in a while, true believers get lucky and find what they consider to be compelling evidence.

Last week, UFO hunters using Google Earth found this bizarre-looking complex in the desert just outside of Cairo, Egypt.

The complex contains two large, pointed buildings and some mysterious structures in circular formations.

As you might imagine, there is a shortage of facts surrounding the purpose of these buildings, which means that speculation is now running rampant online.

Some argue that these buildings play a role in a government conspiracy.

Less dramatic theorists have pointed out that they could be part of a movie set, presumably for the upcoming Star Wars film.

Regardless of their purpose, it’s hard to deny the inherent freakiness of finding two odd-looking buildings in the middle of the desert.

Weird Sounds Were Coming From The Woods, So He Grabbed His Camera To Investigate

The last thing you want to hear in the middle of the night is the sound of high-pitched grinding floating through the trees. To me, this would signal the imminent invasion of aliens and I would be out of there in a flash.

googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘VN_PG_DCBP_ATF’); });

However, Redditor enamore22 stood their ground, grabbed a camera, and started filming. While we never see anything extraterrestrial in the footage, the sounds are disturbing to say the least.

Take a listen for yourself in the video below.

The Redditor says the sounds went on for about 15 to 20 minutes before stopping. According to one commenter, what we’re hearing here is not aliens. It is actually a manual test to calibrate a nearby AM radio antenna. This is usually done during the day when people are at work, but this must have been an emergency situation.

This Insanely Freaky-Looking UFO Was Spotted In The Skies Over Minnesota

Many videos of “UFOs” can be explained away as airplanes or weather balloons, but this footage taken in the fall of 2013 in Minnesota doesn’t look like anything that could immediately be described as man-made.

At first, it appears to be your standard UFO affair, but then the lights start morphing and changing. Suddenly you’re right there with the Minnesota woman when she exclaims, “Freakin’ freaky!”

Apparently this thing can be seen daily in Aitkin County, Minnesota. So if it isn’t a UFO, what is it? Some kind of crazy firework? Many believe it’s just the moon through some branches, but one YouTube commenter claims that she took the video and there weren’t any trees in the way.

What do you think?

There Are Some Questionable Things Showing Up In These NASA Photos

Last fall, NASA released thousands of photos from every manned Apollo mission that took place between 1961 and 1972. The collection includes about 13,000 images from the NASA archives, most of which are photos of smiling astronauts living the dream in outer space.

But Redditor my_newz_account sifted through all of the pictures and came across some bizarre shots. This NASA enthusiast is certainly not a space expert, but that hasn’t stopped the Reddit community from wondering what’s going on here. I’m inclined to share their concerns.

This looks like a standard photo of the moon’s surface…except for that tiny dot up there.

In this image, there’s a slightly bigger dot hanging out in the sky.

And this one’s even larger.

What is this thing?

var OX_ads = OX_ads || []; OX_ads.push({ slot_id: “537251602_56f4a3c47fd32”, auid: “537251602” });

Well, that object is alarmingly huge.

And then we have these tiny anomalies. They’re probably just stars, but what’s with those streaks below them?

Here’s where it all gets really strange. What’s that blue orb?

It appears in many of the images.

var OX_ads = OX_ads || []; OX_ads.push({ slot_id: “537251604_56f4a3c47fefc”, auid: “537251604” });

Here, it looks like it’s beaming down.

Is it a shooting star…or an alien spacecraft? We might never know.

I’m going to assume that because NASA released these photos, they have a reasonable explanation for the craziness. But then again, Kipp Teague of the NASA Project Apollo Archive did say that the reason why he released them online instead of publishing them in print was because the organization was facing budget cuts at the time, so maybe it’s up to us to figure it out.
