Greetings, I have been reading here, and quite a long way back into the Keyhole forums era but have not posted.
I have recently noticed a curiosity that I see as an Historical Imagery item.
While viewing San Clemente Island off the Southern California coast, which is owned by the U.S. Navy and part of their Sea Range,
until recently the island had been shrouded by a heavy bank of what was obviously fake fog. However, in recent viewings the "fog" seemed to have been lifted. That is, until further investigation shows that the "fog" is still visible in views taken on and before a certain date, and in those cases, also below a certain altitude.
The "fog" is visible in views on and before the 12/2005 date, and becomes visible again only when the eye view altitude drops below 51,132 feet.
The latest date shown when the Historical Imagery window is opened is 12/2020. In this view I can zoom in to ground level without encountering any "fog".San Clemente Island.kmz (750 B)
Note: Sometimes the earliest date when the "fog" shows up is in the 12/2008 view. I don't know why the date changes but I have encountered this apparent time shift when viewing the island in GE on different occasions.

I have no doubts that the "fog" was ("camoflog"?). This island is constantly in use by the U.S. Navy as well as numerous "Tenant Commands", (temporary military and U.S. government units either on temporary duty or assigned to a military facility in a field office capacity), who carry out certain operations of a secret or above security level.
But what I find even more curious about this veil is the fact that it was lifted at all. And I would not only not be surprised if it were put back in place in the future, I would fully expect it.

KitsuneFox: syzygy - posts I have made here do not receive much attention. I may do a detailed writeup of the now lost Edgemont Park in PA, one of the first electrified trolley parks in the world, but still debating. I'm missing 1 key bit of information.
