Impossible City is a Military Operations in Urban Terrain (MOUT) training center located at Fort Ord in Monterey, California. Developed by the 7th Infantry Division in the 1980′s, the small fake town was built so that all areas can easily be seen from adjacent buildings. There is very little cover when moving from point-to-point due to the plethora of sniping positions, hence the name Impossible City. This area of the base is off-limits to the public, and is currently used by the FBI for urban assault training. The FBI also provides access for law enforcement and military training.

A series of ten 360 degree night panoramas were photographed by the light of the full moon. Each panorama is comprised of 8 exposures of 1 minute each.
