Just what is going on at Area 51?

The boys at Area 51 have been very busy over the years. The area in and around '51' is teeming with roads, facilities, and much more.

It's difficult to know what's actually going on in 51 and Nevada but I will try to explain. There are facilities that are blacked out all around 51. There all also huge sections of Nevada where the terrain is very blurry. It's my guess, the government is letting us see what they want us to see and either blacking out or blurring what they DON'T want us to see.

Here is a list of what I've found so far:

1. A six point star east north east of 51.

2. What looks to be railroad cars entering an underground tunnel. It's just north of the 6 pointed star.

3. The atomic testing area southwest of 51. Many interesting features.

4. An aircraft parked on a dirt road, next to what may be an underground opening or a possible vent.

5. There are several triangles with targets inside them, with no crater marks. Are these for space based satellites?

6. A cross hair embedded in the earth, is clearly visible.

7. There are many hidden facilities in the region and at least 3 airports.


8. An almost perfect octagon.

Some of the lines cut across mountain ranges in an almost perfect straight line.
