I could tell you, but then I'd have to kill you. S.M.

It looks like an image from either nineteen or two years ago that you browsed onto just recently. My likely candidates for what this apparently restricted space is for is a race track, a rocket launch facility, shaft mining operations. I will say that it is proof that you and I have way too much "free" time on our hands.

Does that say 32°7'34.52"N , 106°27'14.32"W.

If so I can't find anything there, it's just North of Chaparral in New Mexico.

But nearby there are similar looking features

This one with a "sulphur tank" near the middle.

And this one with a CCC tank near the top right

And this additional working nearby

I'm guessing some kind of opencast mining.

Dang. That web page is impressive. Sixty years ago the Soviets would've literally be willing to kill for that kind of imagery resolution of White Sands.

Thank you, all. Bruce Florida, I think you are correct, however I have no way to verify. I went to school at WSMR in 68-70, at that time there was nothing like that. Randall, the images you show I have not seen before, the third one is bizarre. I will have to look those over. Simple Mind, go ahead and tell me, I aint afraid.

Chemical weapons (Or some other equally nefarious weapon) underground storage. Similar to those in Boardman Oregon.

It looks like missile launch pads at White Sands.

If they are ordinance storage for Ft. Bliss Army Base, then this land has been annexed by USAF for bomb storage. I do not believe to be land-based missile silos, as these were numerous in the past but not this numerous, and I remember those to be sited nearer to Roswell, NM.

If not for storage until destruction of chemical weapons or biological weapons, then this could be something even more wierd:

This may be related to the "secret" underground network of bases including the one at Archuleta Mesa, where supposed lizzard men aliens work many levels under ground.

Or it could be the beginnings of BHO's new trailer park for the working class, while all the po' folks live back in LCNM where they apparently even have grass now.
