Unknown Russian site near the Siberian Tundra
According to rumours, there’s several layers of other areas Russia layer over the actual landscape here.
NATO Headquarters, Portugal
What you see on Google Maps is actually another piece of land, superimposed on top of the facility.
Keowee Dam, South Carolina
This dam helps to run the power utilities on the East coast, so it’s a security thing. Or it’s just a damn, dam.
Reims Airbase, France
It’s not ours, it’s theirs. And they’re keeping it secret.
Seabrook Nuclear Facility, New Hampshire
Don’t check your resolution, it’s fine. It’s the plant that’s all squirrely.
HAARP Site, Gakona, Alaska
HAARP stands for “High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program.” So, some X-Files-type of stuff.
Elmira Correctional Facility, NY
Fears of an aerial attack or someone planning an escape, meant this location is blurred. Anyone know Michael Scofield?
Szazhalombatta Oil Refinery, Hungary
All of the buildings, plants and facilities are just green-washed at this location, for no obvious reason.
This heavily populated city is so blurred out, you can’t recognize it.
An entire missile silo in Spain
You can actually find this on Yahoo Maps and Apple Maps, but not Google Maps. Huh?
Every KFC has Colonel Sanders’ face blurred
The algorithm recognizes real faces and does it automatically. So does that mean Wendy’s not a real person?
Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca, Salinas, CA
Large parts of the track are whited out, so you don’t see the latest models cruising around.
Volkel Air Base, Netherlands
When Wikileaks revealed there were some nuclear warheads stored here, the base got pixelated.
US Air Force Rammstein Airforce Base, Germany
As this is a site close to the Middle East, it makes sense that it’s a security precaution. Sick metal band, though.
Random patch of the Pacific Northwest
Near the Oregon/Washington border, is this location. Why it’s a secret, no one knows.
Baker Lake, Nunavut, Canada
Conspiracy theories suggest the black strip over the lake is where extraterrestrial beacons are hidden.
Michael Aaf Building, Utah
A chemical weapons testing site, so it’s a security thing.
Cornell University Power Plant, NY
This is a relatively recent addition to the camps, and it’s all so very hi-tech and hush-hush.
Minami Torishima Airport, Japan
This airport serves the Japanese Maritime Defense Force, and the runway is hidden.
The Royal Palace, Amsterdam
Everything else is crystal clear, but the palace. Interesting.
The home of Russian Energy Executive Alexey Miller
What’s he hiding?
Mobil Oil Corporation Facilities, Buffalo
Not sure if this is a potential target or a question of national security, but in Buffalo, NY, the land of snow and the Sabres, this facility is blurred out.
Tantauco National Park, Chile
This privately-owned nature reserve can’t be zoomed in on. Endangered animals, secret hybrid experiments? Who knows?
Noordwijk Aan Zee, Netherlands
Home to the ESTEC (European Space Research and Technology Centre), they’ve done a seamless job of censoring it.
All of North Korea
