Brilliant shots taken from the ISS, including some of the volcano sonic boom episode that I haven't seen before.

I particularly liked this one too:

Roads and circular fields in the desert in Egypt.

That's exactly what it is


It's much easier to use the circular irrigation system with a center mounting post than the old style rail irrigation that moved across square fields in a straight line.

These can easily be seen from airplanes when flying over rural/farm areas.

Yes -- they are common in the U.S. also (I've seen many of them from airliners) -- but they aren't as easy to notice as these because they don't stand out as much.

These are indeed amazing photos. Is there anyone herre who might have the time to see if they match any known symbology or binary patterns? I've often wondered if they could be used as a means of communication to far off viewers.....
