    Take a look at Area 51 using Google maps, using the satellite feature, tell me the reason for this airfield:

    http://maps.google.com/maps?q=area+51&ll=37.841721,-116.728964&spn=0.022144,0.042315&t=k&hl=en

    If you focus and zoom in on the grey area to the South, this huge marking looks like a nuclear warning symbol, painted on a gargentian paved circle in the middle of a sand flat, surrounded by mystifying markings to the North, and all this surrounded by reduced visibility due to a zone of mountains and government controlled roads anywhere within 50 miles of this flat land.

    I've yet to hear a good explanation for these very unconventional markings. The features of this sand flat clearly lack the aspects of a conventional runway for any modern US military aircraft. The only clear runway visible is surely too narrow and short to accomodate any high altitude spy aircraft, let alone a civlian 747:

    (At the same Zoom level)

    Area 51:
    http://maps.google.com/maps?q=area+51&ll=37.839704,-116.738663&spn=0.011072,0.021157&t=k&hl=en

    Portland Airport:
    http://maps.google.com/maps?q=area+51&ll=45.587254,-122.576694&spn=0.011072,0.021157&t=k&hl=en


    What's most significant about these airfields is the notion that I can zoom out, and see the California coastline before I lose track of exactly where these Area 51 markings are visible from the sky.

    Anyway, you have to admit this is an interesting oddity. And I, for one, welcome our flying saucer visitors, and will even buy them a beer for the long trip.

    Yeah, but isn't this crazy? I mean the two black circles, completely independent of the entire continent, are part of either Google Maps' plan, to mayble provide intrigue, or some U.S. engineers' plan, who are on the ground and blacking this out for some reason.

    Inquiring minds want to know!

    Area 51 WAS a super secret test site. Now its a show place and designed for speculation by nosy people and other governments.

    If it was really secret there would be no satelite photos taken of the area and published publicly. Can we all say decoy? If the US were in contact with aliens they are not at area 51.

    It is the staging point for the GOP's army of 700 foot-tall Jesus Robots, which will soon scour the nation with their laser-death-beam guns, all according to the plans of the wise Master.

    area 51 is about as secret as paris hilton's sex life. The real secret area is area 65. Of course i have no location for it or substantial evidence to prove it exists but its there i tell ya.
