Extraordinary Photos From China's Area 51. What Was This Place, And What Blew It Up?

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.


These photos are a real puzzle. We have verified that the most recent ones are definitely on Google Earth, but what has happened here is as much of a mystery as the site itself. It is located in the area known as China’s ‘Area 51′ and it appears that the installations, whatever they were, have been destroyed from above. But what are they, and why were they blown apart and the buildings ransacked?.unknowncountry

Haisheng Liu for


I was asked to translate a recent submission to viewzone that contained the following images, taken from the google-earth program. Of course I checked the archives to be sure they are correct and noted the GPS coordinates so anyone can confirm that these things are real.


The top of this unusual rectangle construction spans 5670 feet — over a mile — and the road-like structures are as much as 100 feet wide! Google-earth images show the construction at various times going back to 2005. It is always covered with mud and the surrounding land shows no signs of activity for miles (except some miles to the West, where a perfect square of earth about a mile wide has been covered over with sand). Prior to 2005 the google-earth images are blurred in this specific area, suggesting it is not new. It appears to be made somewhat thick as it has not buckled or cracked over the years.

But wait, there’s more weird things in this immediate area:


As you will want to see these for yourself, the coordinates are provided. Zoom in on some of the remains of buildings and camps. They are all vacated and look like they were ransacked. There’s a sign of an explosion in places with the ground riddled with 10 foot craters, as if cluster-bombed. And the weird shapes… are they runways? antennae? symbols?

With a little exploring I came across this image of a remote village — I mean in the middle of nowhere — devoted to laying out this reflective stuff in a specific pattern.



And here, at the end of the runway, antenna, symbol (whatever) is this odd thing.


Orange blocks, as big as cargo containers, are stacked in a circular manner around a small house. Then, sometime after 2007, there is a powerful explosion and the containers are scattered as much as a three miles from their original site. What happened? What is this place?

It even has a HAARP-like installation (see 40 24’17.50″N 93 38’15.75″E).

What we were told in the email:

The reader says this is Top Secret area in a remote part of China. This is the Chinese “Area 51″ where captured (alien?) technology is kept and tested. It is also near by where the nuclear bombs were detonated many years ago. Supposedly the main laboratories are underground. You can see the entrances if you look at the images. Contact has been made with other “technology” (?). A new propulsion system was being tested. But it was not well controlled and could not be stabilized. An accident happened and the device blew up. The area is very contaminated now.

Then there’s this: 


There certainly is strong evdence that something came from “above” and blasted this site (and most others in the area). Is this all just a hoax? Check this for yourself with google-earth and let us know what you find.

      Great post ,and damned weird stuff too. I saw some of this before on google earth and wondered what the heck it could have been.

      There must have been something horrible going on. I hope this stuff won’t be used in a real war any time soon.

      Laughing out loud at all the conjecture and fear mongering. The fact is, not one person posting or reading this article has a clue as to what these pics are, if they are real and what really happened. Go put your foil hats back on and cower under your afghans.

      The Chinese may have been playing with some technology that “blew” up in their face.

      Can you read the secret words in the design? If you can you can decipher what it is protecting.

      Did anyone else try and use those co-ordinates on Google earth? One of them took me to Kenya. Another one came back with a message that those co-ordinates did not exist. Interesting indeed.

      The coordinates are allright. All the pictures are authentic just like on Google Earth!!!

      It obviously a training area for a “Red Dawn” scenario. The Chicoms are getting ready to invade the USA and have used this place to practice urban warfare. They blown buildings were replica’s of the average American sheeple home…

      The blast wasn’t that large of hot! It blew the rubble toward the center which is strange – unless – it wasn’t a blast at all but a vacuum being filled by the surrounding atmosphere rushing in to fill the void! Teleportation? Time tunnel? They may have a edge on US!

      The Elites were at war with each other and this has something to do with passing over money.

      I don’t think the stuff done over there are at the highest level of secrecy… The localization is just a bit too obvious when such installation on the side of the ancient silk road, plus the kind of installation is a bit big… I just think they are doing some R&D, like some Chinese version of the Phantom Ray, and cover up to avoid lawsuit and keep some secrecy…

      This is the secret site where they stash all those Christmas decorations they flood the world with every year. They were all loaded into containers and ready to go. So the Yanks first tried to negotiate a compromise, whereby Hillary Clinton would have committed suicide live on Fox News and/or become Muammar Gaddafi’s girlfriend, in exchange for a three-year moratorium on new designs, but it didn’t work out as they all got too out of their heads on cocaine, so she radioed up a seal team to destroy the site, as otherwise these world-beating products would have wreaked havoc with the US economy for generations. The squiggly patterns are giant mock-ups which are designed to test the feasibility of manufacturing these things on an industrial scale and then shrinking them to make them easier to transport. There is another possibility which has been mentioned; ie that these designs introduce “worms” or “trojans” into the software controlling the spy cameras used to look down on them, and when these pictures are released onto the internet, everyone who looks at them becomes slightly more insane than they were before they started. Anyway, back to the explanations. Santa’s elves came out to defend their property and a firefight broke out, during which OBL led a suicide attack against the Yanquis, and was gunned down and taken to Pakistan for questioning in a top secret “triangle” craft. The “Space War Casualties” shot is in reality a giant spare fireworks-powered rice cooker, which was envisaged as something which could feed the whole of China for several weeks. I know this because I worked on it for three years, whilst employed as the man who changes the lightbulbs and cleans the toilets. Unfortunately the thing overheated during preliminary trials, and the result is the gooey mess you clearly see before your eyes.

      I think it could just be the aftereffects of some of Mow Chung’s learn to cook classes.

      I suspect there is an high energy weapon being developed that fits inside aircraft. Much of the great eastern army in 2011 is underground. The great eastern army (the description) comes from Revelation 9:16 and 16:12 (200 million soldiers/the KINGS OF THE EAST). The great eastern army equals (and appears to be) the Shanghai Co-operation Organisation group of China-friendly nations. Mao wrote about the great eastern army back in 1963 (his persnal diary) when he said that any day he wants to he can foot 200 million soldiers. mao has been dead for decades but the PLA still builds the great army. Decades after Maos death…the guns will be ready, the ammunition will be ready, the soldiers equipment will be ready. All that is missing are the vehicles to take the soldiers to far lands. One of Australias ‘re-names’ is NEW SOUTH CHINA.
      Other events prophesied: 1. include the burning of the US grain harvest. ICBM targeting mapa lready established? Who knows what is planned. 2. The partial fall of Australia.
      Is China preparing to move into asia? You betchya. Pray for the USA. Write to your Congressman. US Defense is not as alert as it should be. Australia is so bad with defence prep I consider it already taken. RED DAWN (aka Tomorrow: When The War Began approaches).

      These pictures are real. I found them myself too purely by accident a few years ago. They have taken a few years to complete if you use the Google Earth timelines. I have not heard anything about what they could be and why the odd patterns.

    • Empirical

      I finished my sixth trip to China two weeks ago. The so-called Chinese HAARP facility is in fact a high voltage transmission electrical substation which is what I work at when I’m there.

      Fac: the Chinese are building the American grid every 5 years, so substations like the one above are popping up in the most remote regions.

      These Images are on indeed out there are altered. Anyone who accepts these images as factual are fooling themselves. Googke/Facebook, do any of you honestly think these are truely under private control? You see what they allow you to see.

      i want to recommend the Texe Marrs interview at Youtube, Moneybomb 2011. he details how the west, U.S.especially, is being robbed and ruined in order to build up China as the new global powerhouse. the banksters will generously provide us all with suicide nets outside the windows of our workplaces.

      It’s performance art. They drape various things over the countryside and film it from space. There’s probably a soundtrack too.

    • marcos anthony toledo

      I wonder if this is the USA handy work getting rid of the competition I hope the Russian Area 51 better protected. Unless this was the Chinese moving their Area 51 to a more secure place.

    • Isis

      they appear to be imprints of ancient facilities which are no longer there … it seems a lot of celestials/aliens are pulling out since the passing/arrival of the YU55 comet …. there is more going on than meets the eye ..

    • Stink Neck

      If you look at that last pic on google earth and scroll back in time (IF you don’t know how to do that look in the view menu at the top and select “Historical Imagery” and then slide the thing that pops up back and forth), in the last image they have built a perimeter around it to seal it off and have dumped a heap of debris just to the west (just zoom out a little).

    • True News

      Very interesting post, I’ve checked most of the coordinates and they check out! Great find!

    • Freedom

      if you head east on google earth from the site about 60-100 km away there is a nucular power plant (will look like a big square blue lake)the nuke plant is on the north end of the lake. guess this would power what ever facility used to be there in the pics.

      The ‘roads’ look painted. There is a rock or hill and the white markings almost look like they have been ‘painted’, not up the sides of the rock but across the top so as to be seen from an aerial view.
      Well I’m stumped!

    • Apolitical Blues

      HereAmI, that was totally entertaining.

      However, if the Chinese are as pissed about being suckered into $trillions of bad debt as I imagine they are, their capacity to develop spaced based weapons should not be so easily dismissed. Who do you suppose hacked into the DoD super computer and stole terra bites of weapons systems data?

    • Anisha

      Don’t know what to make of this. I do believe however, there is more going on ‘underground’ than above ground in more ways than one. Pay more attention to the money system and take a look at all the racketeering in the last 10 years alone. Why? Simple. The Jekyll Island Treaty of 1910 expired last Sept 2010.

      All the rats in the corporate govt. scurried to grab what they could hence all the blatant fraud. Those who were the backers of the Federal Reserve are finally ‘free’ from their obligations of backing global criminals. No sooner did the ink dry on this J.I. treaty did the banking CABAL double cross these benefactors locked in for 100 years. Now they are free from the criminals we see the emergence of RuSA (Republic for the united States of America) and the other 57 emerging Republics world wide all based upon the Decl. of Indep. 1776. THESE Republics are being backed by those who are now free from a harrowing obligation. Get wise. Get involved in your free states. The RuSA has been lawfully re-inhabited. This is government of, for and by the people. BAR attorneys are forbidden to hold public office in RuSA. Money is going to flow like never before but this time it will be ‘lawful’ money. We will see the rise of family small businesses, ‘real’ farming of truly nutritious foods, ‘real’ classical liberal arts education that helps develop human beings into their creative God given individual selves that truly contribute for the benefit of all. There is a program that will systematically remove our land out of the Queen/Crown’s lien but it has to come from the people themselves. All mortgages are null and void. No property taxation. All courts are common law courts authority derived from our de jure Constitution c.1791-1861. Don’t just sit here and read all these ‘fearmonging’ articles when you could actually ‘do something’ to prepare the way for our ‘real’ government. The way our founders left it for us for this time right now. They knew we would have to all live through a terrible time in our American history but they left us all we need to re-inhabit what we already had.

      great comment, Anisha. you’re with the white hats, is that right?

      The ‘White Hats’ are those who may find themselves in powerful positions within the joint chiefs of staff, CIA, FBI, MI6, House of Lords, Inner Temple, White House and even banking. There are some ‘white hats’ there. There are ‘white hats’ who work at McDonalds, downtown offices, group homes, software engineers, artists and potters. Some are active duty military, law enforcement, astronauts. They are on reservations trying to help their people. White hats can be found in schools as teachers, in churches as preachers and even in the legislatures. Of course everyone has their ‘price’ that may betray all others, yet there are those who cannot be ‘bought’ in the noble heart. Those are essentially ‘white hats’. They truly know ‘who’ they serve and it isn’t their selfish separate selves or other men but God alone/their conscience, their hearts. Those are the ‘true’ white hats.

      Anyone remembers what happened at Quiling/Qiling(?) area, some green/blueish explosions at the site…? Something to do with this?

    • tmtbonem

      yep I like the person that made the first comment saw these and several other strange anomalies on google earth and wondered the same thing. Probably more likely to get the truth from the Chinese before the Zionist controlled media and government here in America

    • Rick Carufel

      I seem to remember years ago rumors of the Chinese tunneling like crazy with the aim of delivering nukes through tunnels to the West. I wonder it this is related to that?
