    Default nope

    This is not Eielson Air Force Base, though it may be part of Eielson's budget. This is the Blair Lake Air Force Range. It is located inside the Fort Wainwright Military Reservation. I heard that an occasional satellite would go up from here. It doesn't look like a bombing range to me but I could be wrong.

    It is Clear Air Force Station, home of the 13th Space Warning Squadron and the Alaska Air National Guard Det 1.

    No, it isn't Clear AFS. It's left to Clear Airport west-south-west of Fairbanks.

    You are right, I think this is Blair Lake AF Range then. Was part of Eielson.
