Google Earth weird satellite photos – crop circle type things?

Been on both Mechanical Turk and Google Earth looking for planes for that Steve Fossett search. However I just went into Google Earth, that file with the new photos being used in Nevada for Steve Fossett…and there’s these weird looking circles. They’re perfectly round, but look like fields. I have no idea what the crap this is. Some farmer decided to have round crops?
Please tell me what these are. The coordinates of my pointer are:
39°20’45.16″N 117°18’45.66″W
I don’t know how to get the coordinates you just put in the “fly to” thing like mturk gives, so if anyone needs them you’ll have to tell me how to get em.
Thanks in advance.
I don’t know if this matters but again, this was using this file that I had to download off of the mechanical turk site to get the ‘new’er images. This is the link straight off mturk: http://s3.amazonaws.com/Fossett-DG/DG/index.kml
CLBH that makes a lot of sense, because that does seem like what it is, circles of green in otherwise dry land. Hmm , but they seem way too big to be that.
Ok that seems to be the case, thanks for everyone’s input, don’t know why I didn’t think of that. I think my size perception of things on google earth is still very skewed, lol.
Thanks everyone 🙂


  1. I’ll check it out, it sounds freaky! Alright I looked it up, what you’re looking at is a bunch of round farms. Out west they make circular farms like this. Click on this link to go to wikipedia, it has a picture of some on the right side of the page. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Farm

  2. probably just normal crop circles. Make by muppets who like takin the piss.
    Go enjoy your life with something more interesting.

  3. It looks like farming/livestock fields. the reason for them being round, is so the farmers can easily maintain and water them

  4. What The HELL Are Those! They’re PERFECT CIRCLES!
    They Aren’t Aliens though, That is Just Ridiculous! they look like radars? spooky. well, i lost my adrenaline. so i wont be doing this. QWERTYUIOPASDFGH…..etc…………..
    It is something to ponder. I’m gonna send that to my science teacher. I’ll get back to you.
