Strange structures can be found in the desert of the United Arab Emirates and can be clearly seen on Google Earth. A number of these structures have been discovered dotted around the same region. These structures have prompted a lot of speculation and theories on what they could be and is going viral across the internet.
Some have speculated that they are just water storage units or solar energy units. Others say that it could be missile silo’s, radar housing or some other military structures. Still others claim alien spacecraft, the New Age experiment ‘Venus Project’ and aHomeland Security Advanced Research Projects Agency (HSARPA) project.
What do you think they are?

Guatemala is in the midst of quite the hubbub of excitement over the claims of a retired German teacher.
Joachim Rittstieg says ancient Dresden Codex and Mayan priests guided him to the legendary Atlantis in eastern Guatemala.
The city is underwater and is laden with untouched treasure, according to Rittstieg. These include eight tons of gold tablets.
He claims to have found Atlantis following his visit to Lake Izabel in eastern Guatemala. Instead of being dismissed, Mr. Rittstieg has garnered a lot of interest by the media.
The buzz over Rittstieg is “very strange,” says Oswaldo Chinchilla, a Guatemalan archaeology professor and Mayan museum curator. “This is complete fantasy,” he says.
Rittstieg counters that he can’t help it that he found the city and the experts didn’t.
He claims the US Navy helped detect the exact location after following instructions in the Dresden Codex and the assistance of Mayan priests.
“They say it cannot be. But I have the basic information now,” says Rittstieg, who is seeking funding for an excavation.
The sun should have risen over the Greenland’s most westerly town, Ilulissat, on 13 January, ending a month-and-a-half of winter darkness.
For the first time in history, then sun actually came up two days earlier!
Scientists are now totally confused by this phenomenon and are trying to peg it on global warming.
According to some scientists, as the icecaps have melted due to global warming, the horizon gets lower. The result is that the sun rises earlier as there is no ice to block it.
The funny thing is that the sun in Ilulissat actually rises from behind mountains without ice.
Another option put forward is that the earth’s axis has changed slightly. This would also make the sun rise early.
But Wolfgang Lenhardt, director of the department of geophysics at the Central Institute for Meteorology in Vienna, denied this theory.
“The constellation of the stars has not changed. If that had happened, there would have been an outcry around the world.
‘The data of the Earth’s axis and Earth’s rotation are monitored continuously and meticulously and we would know if that had happened.”
The most plausible theory so far is that this is due to refraction.
Atmospheric refraction is the deviation of light or other electromagnetic wave from a straight line as it passes through the atmosphere due to the variation in air density as a function of altitude.
This refraction causes astronomical objects to appear higher in the sky than they are in reality – especially those that appear to be on the horizon.
With the strange weather caused by the jet stream this year, it would be unsurprising that the air density has changed somewhat which would cause this refraction effect to take place.
