    Duga 3 radar system, nr Chernobyl, Ukraine

    Otherwise known as the 'Eye of Moscow'...

    So, what the hell is Duga 3?

    This was quite a bus ride out from Chernobyl itself, but was totally worth it. Big heads up to our guides and their extensive knowledge of the place.

    ^ What the woodpecker array looks like from the top ^

    No, before anyone asks, we didn't climb to the top. My good god we wanted to, but apparently it takes hours and we didn't have this much time. Maybe sometime in the future though... We spoke to a few people that have, and they said although tiring, it was such an experience.

    Great pictures, Seffy. :-)

    I was so impressed by the size of the array, I wasn't sure what to expect but it was epic and so deathly silent. To give Duga a sense of scale:

    Un-real !! And I thought the Pyramids looked huge from the foot ....!!
    What's even more incredible is how something this massive was built in such secrecy.
