Re: Runway at Groom Lake.

The runways are designated 32L (west) and 32R (east), meaning they are oriented 320 degrees clockwise off north if approaching from the south. If approaching from the north, they would be 14L (east) and 14R (west), making them 140 degrees clockwise off north.

It is thought the older western runway is no longer used, as recent sat pics show cross markings, and a lack of tire skid marks on the runway.
