Discovered late June 3303 these sites stretch a substantial distance across the surface and can clearly be seen from low orbit, they are linked to the return of the Thargoids. Thargoid ships have been seen appearing in certain areas of these sites. The sites were previously known as Unknown Structures, but subsequently renamed as explicitly Thargoid.

WHAT ARE THEY? HOW WERE THEY FOUND?
A Thargoid Structure is a sprawling structure found on a planet’s surface. The first site was discovered on June 26, 3303 on planet B 1 C of the HIP 19026 system; by July 5, it was believed that all extant sites, 208 in total, had been discovered (though one extra was later revealed by Eagle Eye). The function and purpose of these sites are currently unknown.
These sites first found from Listening posts in the Maia system, appear organic in nature which many at this stage speculate to Thargoid related. From orbit the site appears to have a spiral like structure which can instantly be linked to a similar shape as Thargoid ships seen across the Pleiades sector.
Thargoid Surface Sites consist of a central, organic-like structure in a crater or depression at the center of a spiral geologic formation with more organic formations protruding from the spiral’s eight arms. The central structure is is a smaller spiral with shorter arms, reminiscent of an Unknown Ship’s general shape. A possible eight-paneled door that is oriented flat with the surface can be seen at the center of the structure.
Tunnels lead below the surface and seemingly deeper into the site itself, but are blocked by doors that can only be opened by carrying an Thargoid Sensor or Thargoid Probe. Vehicles that approach or enter the central structure will experience some light electromagnetic interference that disrupts their HUD. There are two types of sites, “active” with no collapsed areas, and “inactive” with collapsed areas. As new sites are discovered, some also appear to be more developed or complete than others, with a greater proportion of their structure visible above ground.
Scattered around the site are “Thargoid Uplink Devices”, these can be scanned and will give you a marker in the navigation so you can return to the site more easily. Scanning these also produces one of three kinds of data Material: Unknown Material Composition Data, Thargoid Residue Data Analysis, and Unknown Structural Data. In addition, the Organic Structures across the site can be destroyed to obtain Materials ranging from Sulphur and Iron to Meta-Alloys.
The site is also home to the Thargoid Link, as well as the Thargoid Device. Messages from the Thargoid Device were used to find other Thargoid Structures, though subsequently it was found via the Eagle Eye initiative that the device messages point to locations of Thargoid activity, and so have been changing over time, and the original messages may no longer be available.
So far upon writing this there have been 208 sites found in total, this an impressive amount to have found most of which were found via the Thargoid Link which allows you to locate 3 sites from every device activated from the 3 Unknown messages the Device outputs.
