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 this season, experts investigate mysteries captured in the skies above every corner of the globe, from Brazil to China, England to Australia.

When satellites uncover a strange field of mounds the size of Great Britain, it leads to an incredible discovery that dates from the time of ancient Egypt. In Turkey, aerial images reveal the drowned remains of a building linked to the dawn of Christianity. In Scandinavia, eyes in the sky discover a macabre new form of Viking burial. 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.

WHAT ON EARTH? premieres Thursday, August 27 at 9p on Science Channel. In addition to watching WHAT ON EARTH on Science Channel, viewers can join the conversation on social media by using the hashtag #WhatonEarth and following SCIENCE CHANNEL on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
