Someone found the image on the right on Google Earth:
Google Earth, the satellite imaging site that brought us hovering cars, is now the source of a mysterious new find – this time an unusual man-made landscape in a remote part of China.
The Chinese site based in the very remote Huangyangtan region, appears to be a small-scale model of a piece of territory complete with snow-topped mountains, streams and valleys.
The find, recorded by a German member of a Google Earth community site, has triggered speculation that the site might have a military purpose.
Everyone’s got their own theory of what it is. However, in addition the question of what it is, there is also the question of when it was taken: according to this article on commercial satellite imaging and military secrets, some of the images in Google Earth and other commercial satellite imaging apps are actually quite old (ranging from a month to a year). This is why, according to an American quoted in the article, “In 1999, during the Bosnian War, we bombed the Chinese Embassy by mistake because of outdated maps and aerial images.”
