I'm back

It's been some time since I've maintained my lil' blog here. I'm still an occasional participant in the Google Earth Community Forum, but there hasn't been much to say about the Huangyangtan thing.

I do see that there has been a tremendous surge in the number of times the forum post has been read; it's way over 300,000 now. I'm not sure where it's coming from. It might be due to groups that have somehow added a UFO angle to the site.

One forum and Found in China reader has asked why the link here (and in the Wikipedia article on Aksai Chin) now leads to some unrelated post in the GE forum. That must have been caused by the recent revamp of the forum; all past posts now have a different reference number associated with them. It appears the forum managers haven't succeeded in redirecting outside references to the proper post. I'll fix it here as soon as I can, but I'm not an editor in Wikipedia, so somebody else will need to take care of that one. Thanks for the heads-up, Gazavat.

Hi Mr. Found-in-China,
I'm wondering if anyone has contacted you with ground-based photos of the Huangyangtan site. I visited a few days ago, but didn't manage to see much from outside the gate (just south of the airforce building). some of the white peaks stick up amid the other hills. but my photos look like classic ufo-type images...they show almost nothing. i was trying to shoot semi-discreetly from a moving car so they are blurry and often mis-framed. anyway, curious how many others have ground-truthed the site.
