ok so today i have a some time off from work and school so i decided to devote some of my morning to finding some strange formations/I don't know what to call it that i had seen a little over a year ago on google earth but had since lost. I found it again and have shared it here. This is south west of roswell, nm. It's more south than west though.Anyway, coordinates are at bottom if you want to visit it yourself. There are some other strange findings nearby that I'm still trying to find again and I will post them here when I do. Anyone seen this before or know what it is?

That's probably a Native American religious site of some sort. Anthropologists have theorized that the Buddhist symbol came over with the nomadic peoples who crossed the Bering Strait around 600 B.C. Many tribes in New Mexico, such as the Navajo, use the swastika to this day.

This reminds of me similar formations in South America, Peru I think. Except those ones are mostly animals. I saw a doc about them once, and the narrator hypothesized that they may have been some kind of navigational markers for UFO's. I mean you can't even tell what they are unless you are looking down at them.

33 Degrees north and what appears to be an image of an Ark above it. And the cross of course would most likely represent the planet of the crossing. There is definitely something significant about this sites geographical location. Good find!

One question though, does the cross point true N, S, E and W or does it point NE, and SW or something along those lines?

Swastikas are not bad. they have been used for at least a thousand years asa symbol of spiritual purity and well being. by the hindus. the tibetan buddhists the shaolin buddhists several asian religions and philosphies and with a large range of native american culture.

THe damned nazis perverted it. In time it will go back to being a symbol of good, and the perversion the nazis made of it will be forgotten like it should.

Go into just about any buddhist temple and you'll see swastikas.

the dali lama an agent for hitler? not exactly.

Looks suspiciously like the all seeing eye in a rectangular box at the top.

Even looks like a perfect pupil in the middle. Obviously there for a reason, and 33 Degrees, mmmhh Interesting!

WOW! Thank you for the excellent post!

I'll be spending my afternoon checking them all out. I do wonder also about the intent of the symbols. They are useless if not seen from above so the logical explanation is that 'someone' could see them from a great distance above.

Great find, You must spend sometime to find that on google earth, flagged and starred. It Reminds me very much of the Maya for some reason.
Really interesting and hope someone can find out what it is, I for one will be searching for an answer.

World War II bombing targets.

The New Mexico figures were constructed as targets on precision bombing ranges attached to Army Air Corps training fields located at Albuquerque, Clovis, Deming, Carlsbad, Hobbs, and Roswell.

Aerial photographs, dating from 1996 and 1997, were obtained from the United States Geological Survey and reviewed. Over 100 aerial photographs of geoglpyhs have been found. The most common geoglyph is the bull's-eye target, typically constructed by grading away surface soils. In a few odd cases bull's-eye targets were constructed from stone rings.

Government documents indicate these targets range in size from 1,000 feet to 1,800 feet in diameter. Arguably the most elaborate targets were associated with the Roswell Army Air Field. Over half of the 34 RAAF targets are either swastikas or reverse swastikas superimposed over a bull's-eye target. Large berms, 6 feet high, 15 feet wide and 1,000 feet long form the cross-hairs in the center of the target. Small appendages placed half-way down and perpendicular to each leg complete the appearance of the swastika. In some cases other crudely made targets representing ships, ship docks, and oil storage tanks are visible around the perimeter of the swastikas or bull's-eye targets. Measurements taken from aerial photos show the ships to be approximately 800 feet long by 200 feet wide and the storage tanks and ship docks approximately 350 feet square.

The bombing ranges were used just a few short years, from 1942 to 1945. A typical training mission consisted of dropping 100 pound concrete or sand-filled bombs. A small spotting charge, that fired out a flash of flame and smoke, was attached to each bomb allowing air crews to observe the accuracy of their practice mission. Sometimes other weaponry such as high explosive, water-filled chemical bombs and incendiary bombs were also used. For more than 60 years natural erosional processes, human activities and encroaching vegetation have attacked the targets, completely erasing some and leaving others scarcely visible. Targets graded into the soil have fared the onslaught poorly while the swastikas, made from piles of rock and soil, are persisting slightly better.

As Usual, Phage comes up with an answer! Well, I must say, that I can't dispute that, it seems pretty legit to me.


Well done!

When I was in Boy Scouts we used to go hiking at night on the Smoky Hill Air Force Bombing Range in Kansas. There was lots of cool stuff to find and play around with. We used to collect hundreds of pounds of NATO .308 brass. I even carted a radar scope out of a wrecked F86 and took it home one time. Ah good times.....good times.

eeek.
Sounds a leeetle bit dangerous but in those days we did have to watch out for ourselves a bit more. I had a couple BSA campouts on and old AFB were we came across some "interesting" items myself.
