A secret finding sky net

WHILE TAKING A DRIVE DOWN AN OLD ROAD NEAR OUR PA HOME WE GOT LOST AND STUMBLED UPON THIS INCREDIBLE INSTALLATION. ITS CALLED SKYNET AND THEY MONITOR AND COMMUNICATE WITH SATELLITES IN SPACE. IT WAS AWESOME TO SEE. NOTICE THE SIZE OF MARILYN IN COMPARISON.

Nice pics, although the mention of "Skynet" immediately made me think of the Terminator movies...
