Amid the thick, dense forests of north-eastern Germany, a gargantuan structure looms large over the horizon. The eerie, dome-shaped construction – which you can see from miles away – dominates the vast landscape. It even dwarfs the sizable and numerous trees that surround it. But where did it come from? And, more importantly, are the authorities concealing sinister goings-on inside?

This imposing and other-worldly dome stands at more than 350 feet tall. Yes, you read that right: the mammoth structure is, eye-wateringly, over 106 meters at its highest point. To put that into perspective, that’s roughly equivalent to 65 six-foot-tall humans all perched atop one another’s shoulders.
