That is definitely a possibility. I heard more than one story from the Roadrunners how they laid out or painted shapes on the ramp to mess with the Russian spy satellites.

And then there is the story how the Russians supposedly got a rough outline of the A-12: An A-12 was mounted on the pylon on the lake bed for early RCS tests on a hot summer day. Although it was hastily removed and covered before a spy satellite pass the Russians got the rough outline with an IR camera that saw the cooler desert floor that had been shaded by the A-12. I have never heard this story first hand but it makes sense.

And finally there is the message from some folks here in Rachel to the pilots that got picked up by a satellite. See attached link. :-)
