This air photo shows detail of the storage facility. In the west are four large tanks 1 with a pond 2 to the south. In the east are at least 18 tanks 3; those painted white are easily picked out, but a black-painted tank 4 is not so obvious. Shadows fall almost due north 5 indicating that the photo was taken near noon.
