From 30,000 Feet

During my recent flight across the country, I took these photos with my cell phone camera from my window seat. I estimate I was somewhere over the midwestern part of the United States.
I thought it was odd to have part of the land covered by snow and the other part snow-less at least from my vantage point.


Later on the flight, I noticed perfectly formed round landmarks. They look like crop circles, but they probably have something to do with farming. Does anyone know? One even looked like it had eyes.

Isn't it amazing how things look so different from the sky, makes you wonder how it all got planned out so it would look like that. Nice shots

I see the eyes! Is it really irrigation?

It's interesting to see the irrigation equipment on the the ground. Their long, slightly arced bars you sometimes see along the highway. They look like giant lawn sprinklers, which, I guess is what they are.

The circles are circles because one end of the irrigation system is connected to water and the rest of it rotates (or is moved) around that central point -- kind of like that lane that moves around round radar screens in the movies.

Thank you for the information. I as well as others have learned something new and now know these are not crop circles. HeeHee!
