Anyone here, like me, noticed the mysterious targets in the middle of the desert while cruising around in Google Earth?

 

I'd heard of the purpose for these crosses before, but I thought this article made for a good story: http://www.npr.org/2016/10/11/496567104/decades-old-mystery-put-to-rest-why-are-there-xs-in-the-desert

 

Don't miss the link to the 1972 CIA briefing video: https://archive.org/details/gov.archives.arc.1678526

 

Neat stuff!

WOW! I've been flying over these for years and have always assumed that they were an old form of NavAid. I may have even lied to a few students and told them the same thing. Shhh don't tell them ;)
