Ships in the Desert

Friday, 20th April 2007 by

We previously featured the dying Aral Sea back in January 2006, but since then much of the area has been updated with high resolution satellite imagery. Which means we can now see several ships, abandoned in the middle of a desert, a bit like the one in Close Encounters.

Read our original article for an explanation why these ships are here, and for links to other things to see in the area.
