“Six weeks ago, a man living in Germany and calling himself KenGrok, announced a fascinating discovery on a Google Earth Community forum.
Poring over satellite images of China on the free Google Earth service, he came across a strange plot of land - approximately 900 metres by 700 metres, about the size of six Sydney Cricket Grounds.”

Whoa!  It’s a scale model of another area.  Crazy.  I wonder what they use it for.

How do we know that it is a different one, though, and not some pictures of the one that was already reported from when it was being made?
