China's Secret Underground Nuclear Sub Base in Google Earth

China Underground Nuclear Sub base  in Google EarthThe Washington Times wrote a story recently about some declassified satellite images made public by Imaging Notes Magazine of secret bases in China. Of particular interest is the location of a formerly secret underground nuclear submarine base which has a tunnel entrance for the subs, as well as a tunnel for landbased equipment. The image came from Digital Globe, one of the providers of satellite photos for Google Earth. Stefan at OgleEarth took the images from the story and created image overlays for Google Earth so you can see the exact location and the detailed images with the annotations provided by Imaging Notes.

There's some interesting notes about how the base was built at the Nuclear Information Project.. Digg it!

    look a bit northwest of the base, along the same coast, like 1 km away you can also see a nother submarine in a pear. It is perfectly visible as it is on the surface....
