No one figured out the truth about the station for nearly 40 years, when Franz Selinger discovered it while writing a book about Nazi weather stations. (Though it would've been VERY embarrassing if the guy literally writing the book on Nazi weather stations didn't find it.) The station was uncovered in 1981, finally providing people with evidence of the only armed landing that the Nazis ever made in North America.
