15 Top Secret Places Google Earth Doesn't Want you to See

By Andrew Alpin, 13 November 2017


There are several classified places around the globe that have been either blurred or pixilated by Google Earth. The reasons for such are unknown although the area, of course, is known by virtue of the surrounding information. Some are facilities; others are mysterious locations in the mountains, government buildings, and even people's houses. Only Google will be privy to such information but that doesn't mean we won't know there is a secret that Google or whoever has instructed Google is hiding behind those blurred images. Here are 15 secret places on Google Earth which Google doesn't want you to see.

1 Moruroa, French Polynesia


Moruroa is an atoll among the French Polynesian islands in the South Pacific and when seen from Google Earth, it certainly seems they have something to hide. Various islands are visible including parts of the atoll but you will find certain places blurred from sight. It isn’t possible to find out what secret lies there but the common assumption is that the atoll has an airstrip a dock and a few buildings. The vicinity around Muroroa atoll was a nuclear testing site for the French between 1966 and 1996. This could possibly have something to do with the blackout.

2 Taipei, Taiwan


This image has been clearly doctored. On first glance, it looks normal and shows an air facility belonging to the Republic of China in Taiwan’s Taipei. If you look closely you will see how the image isn't what it seems and the entire area has a different shade in comparison to surrounding areas.

3Utrecht, Netherlands


This is a house in Holland that has been completely pixilated by Google earth and no one really knows why. The house is located on 8 Oorsprongpark in Utrecht, Holland. The roof has been blurred and is noticeable in comparison to the surrounding houses.

4Junction Ranch, California


Junction Ranch is a military testing site that also contains a large airstrip. The facility is a part of the Naval weapons station on China Lake where it is believed that that the government is working on secret drone projects. The area looks as it should on Google maps but one particular area has been scratched out. Bing maps have the entire area blurred out. There is, of course, a reason but that, of course, must be a very confidential one.

5 Snow Saddle, Nepal


Kantega or Snow Saddle is an area located at 22,000 feet, high up in the Nepal Himalaya. Google maps has blacked out the entire region while Bing maps has pixilated it. One wonders why? There are allegations and assumptions that the Nazis made secret expeditions in the area where they were believed to have discovered a UFO base and testing site. The area has been blacked out to discourage the secret entrance that leads to the base or investigating the area. The area is well known for its huge number of alleged UFO sightings.
