Whether due to security or paranoia, there are many places on Google Earth that you won’t be able to go peaking around in. Some governments specifically request Google to blur certain areas out while other times the only satellite imagery available to the public is severely outdated (the White House). These are 25 places that are suspiciously blurry on Google Maps.

This high tech and eco friendly facility generates electricity from natural gas as part of an effort by the university to reduce CO2 emmision. You won’t get to see the process happen from above though because it is completely blurred out.
Although not blurred out this is one place you won’t find on Google street view anytime in the future. Although satellite imagery does exist, street names and locations have only been filled in according to sparse accounts from those who have escaped or visited.
