What is this building and what is it used for ? Image Credit: Google Earth
A peculiar structure in the Egyptian desert near Cairo has been generating a lot of speculation online.
Eagle-eyed users of Google's ever-expanding satellite mapping service have identified a lot of mysterious buildings over the years and this latest discovery, which is situated in the desert to the east of Egypt's capital city Cairo, is no exception.

The structure, which has two long pointed sections and is surrounded by six circular features, has prompted a great deal of speculation on social media with Internet users suggesting explanations ranging from a secret military base to something off the set of the next Star Wars movie.

A video covering the discovery and some of the theories surrounding it can be viewed below.

There's nothing secret about these at all. They are military installations. In all likelihood they are missle installations. And you are wrong to think they don't have an advanced military. No idea where you get your information. Egyptian Air Force has F-16's, along with the latest Russian/Sukhoi fighters. Two years ago in a joint program with the U.S. Government the Egyptian Air Force was provided seven U.S. Apache helicopters. Might want to do a little research on what you speculate. I lived in Cairo. Actually lived very close to an installation that looks very similar to these. Have feasted... [More]

Well the roads are new. The buildings themselves look new so I guess it's another way of mystifying Egypt since discoveries are diminishing and tourism seems to play a role in popularising Egypt. But our great grand children should be the ones wondering not us. We have the nazca lines to worry about. Not that's really mystery.

This is kind like Area 51. If you look at Area 51 in Google earth you will find strange things in there. Like the airplanes that were being designed while WW2 in Area51 are now just released it might be the same cause it looks like a Airplane Launching Pad or whatever. It might also be like a ramp and in the sides where are those circles they look like there must be a missile launcher or a helicopter landing field. And there you can see like a gate and than two side ways. It must be secret aircraft. That is my theory
