обнаруживать / обнаружить [ab-na-RU-zhi-vat'/ab-na-RU-zhit'] (imperfective/perfective verb) – to discover, to find out

Когда мы обнаружили, что случилось, было уже поздно. = When we discovered what had happened, it was already too late.

The verb has the same root as "снаружи" = outside, so literally it means "to bring on the outside".
