What They Found In The Middle Of The Desert Using Google Earth Is Incredibly Freaky

Google Earth has become an invaluable tool for armchair UFO hunters. Most of the time, they don't find much, but when they do...it can change everything.

Mike is ViralNova's resident Editor of the Weird. If it makes you say "OMG! That's terrible!!!" then Mike probably wrote it. Despite the subject of his articles Mike is surprisingly well adjusted. When he's not writing, he's making music, performing, and producing podcasts. Google Earth is probably the best thing to happen to alien hunting in the last 100 years. With a simple click of the mouse, users can explore far-flung places and look for signs of alien activity across the globe.

There's usually not much to be found, but every once in a while, true believers get lucky and find what they consider to be compelling evidence.

Regardless of their purpose, it's hard to deny the inherent freakiness of finding two odd-looking buildings in the middle of the desert.
