Advanced satellites and drones are above our heads, invisible to us yet scanning every inch of our planet. With more than 4,000 satellites and countless aerial cameras circling the earth, we are able to observe and capture bizarre and unexplainable phenomenon. Long hidden structures, mysterious natural phenomena, and top-secret facilities are revealed, and often leaving us with the question, what on earth is that?

In England, a satellite image leads historians to investigate the cover up behind one of the most catastrophic explosions in history.
From a spontaneously combusting lake to a 21st century zombie town, a Celtic portal to the land of the dead to the lost pyramids of China, of the WHAT ON EARTH? leaves no mystery unexplored.
