What looks like a giant alien egg that crashed to earth is actually the Radome at the Vandenberg Tracking Station Air Force base. A Radome is a kind of shell/umbrella that protects the satellite tracking equipment from the elements.
This Radome was constructed in 1999 but these photos from 2008-2010 suggest it's abandoned an no longer used by the Air Force.

The dome actually protects the satellite tracking instrument (radar) from the elements. The satellite of course is orbiting the earth in space. More details here; http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Radome
