Well, I guess you could technically call those true crop circles. :lol: For those who don't know, those circles are crops irrigated by a center-pivot irrigation system. They are very common in the Western USA.

A large supply pipe supplies water to the center of the field where a long pipe supported by towers on wheels and sprinkler heads along its length rotates around the center of the circle. I have seen these systems in numerous locations.

Great photo. Did you know what they were when you shot the picture?

Man-made crop circles. Nothing to do with aliens.

I've seen these before as I fly across the Western USA but they tend to be green compared to the surrounding countryside.

Very nice set of circles.

Aloha
