While on a flight to San Francisco from New York, somewhere over California or Nevada, I saw this from my window; what the heck is it?

  • $\begingroup$ Do you have any reason to believe this is an aviation facility? Is the only link to aviation the fact that you saw this while in a plane? $\endgroup$ – raptortech97 Feb 8 '15 at 17:35
  • $\begingroup$ Honestly, no, just wasn't sure where to post. $\endgroup$ – raffian Feb 8 '15 at 17:41
  • $\begingroup$ Do you have its coordinates? $\endgroup$ – Farhan Feb 8 '15 at 18:00
  • $\begingroup$ @Farhan lol, I was in a passenger plane. $\endgroup$ – raffian Feb 8 '15 at 18:05
  • $\begingroup$ @raffian It could be Area 51, that's why I asked for coordinates. Without more information, I tend to agree with the close vote. Btw, on your flight, you flew towards the East of California, then into Nevada. $\endgroup$ – Farhan Feb 8 '15 at 18:31

In case anyone's wondering, it's the Crescent Dunes Solar Energy Project, credit to Trish Ling at Sci-Fi.
