The official Star Wars Facebook Page has just released an awesome virtual experience using Facebook's new 360° technology. Riding through the deserts of Jakku, fans can take their first look at the path that Rey seems to speed along in the second teaser for [Star Wars: Episode VII — The Force Awakens](tag:711158). But it's not just sand and sun -- the surface of Jakku holds secrets and surprises that a keen eye might have already spotted. The tech works for Chrome, Firefox, and Android browsers. Cruise through the remnants of the Battle of Jakku below:

Now, for speculation and possible spoilers. Don't scroll down if you want to remain spoiler-free! Fans who run through the course a few times might spot a couple interesting things -- such as:

A couple of scavengers that may be underlings of Unkar - a character that has been hinted at in Force Friday merchandise. They're pretty unhappy with Rey, and but I'm assuming it's because she's scavenging on their turf.

This alien seems to be picking off of the remnants of the Star Destroyer for supplies, or perhaps to sell parts. Seems as though the graveyard of starships is still rich with goods, despite The Force Awakens taking place roughly 30 years after the battle.

You'll get an up-close and personal look at this Star Destroyer Graveyard -- making it evident that the Battle of Jakku was an intense, horrible loss for the Empire, given that downed Rebel ships are pretty scarce on the path. Thanks to this and Lost Stars, we know for certain that not one -- but several SSDs crashed into Jakku.

And of course -- BB-8 himself! One might think that the little droid was aboard Rey's speeder, but it seems like Rey spots him on her way to rummage through old Imperial starships.

Check it out now on Star Wars' facebook page and see if you can find anymore easter eggs!
