    Default Crop Circles?

    My wife and I recently went on an Alaskan cruise and flew into Seattle on the way to Anchorage. On the way into Seattle we saw a large area with perfect circles in different shades of green.

    Does anyone know what they are?

    Probably circular fields with center-pivot irrigation units...the irrigation piping pivots around a fixed center post, so by necessity the fields are round...I would assume this is what you were seeing

    It was the aliens! It was a message to the mother ship saying "Come get our asses, there is no intelligent life here!"
