    At the first sight i dubbed the main attraction the ‘planetarium tank’

    There are about eight mostly blue oil tanks of varying sizes. The one with the largest circumference has several large squares cut out along the ground level (some regular doorway size, one as big as a small garage door). You can look in and if it’s a sunny and it’s overhead (noon - 4pm usually), the sun shines through all the small holes in the lid of the tank and makes a really beautiful effect like stars on the darkest sky.

    The small buildings (kitchen, office, garage) are fairly boring and smashed to bits/covered in neon graffiti but the oil tanks haven’t really been damaged by vandals.
