Philadelphia-West Chester, June 03, 2019: An Urban Crop Circle

June 03, 2019

What I am about to write is partly based on my imagination and part truth because I don’t have all the answers but questions.

Walking one of the local parks in my area I came across as what I can only describe as a crop circle/Native Indian mounds.

Although, I did see a red/silver object float very low to the ground and it was about the size of a long medium size boat. I was too far away to identify the object and it could have been kids playing on four wheel bikes but I did not hear a sound.

The diagram of the crop circle that I penned on back of an envelope is not to scale but is a good mapping of what the circles looked like after I examine them. I think that the crop circles are man-made but why were they made in the middle of a meadow and each circle has a large stone in the middle of them, and the larger crop circle has three larger stones pointing toward directions points.


The larger crop circle is large enough to fit a nice size house with a swimming pool. I walked about the larger crop circle first and then discovered trails of tall grass that was flattened that led me to two other smaller crop circles and a fourth crop circle that was just flattened grass and no stone in the center.

With all five crop circles the grass in the circle was cut down but the trail between each crop circle was all grass but flattened and not cut.

Here are pictures from the larger crop circle:

This one picture is showing one of the several stones in the circle:


Leaving the larger crop circle to the East is the first of the two smaller crop circles with stones in the center and you can see the larger crop circle in the background:

To the right of this small crop circle is a trail leading back to the larger crop circle.


And, the third of the two smaller crop circle pointing to the North:




The fourth crop circle was just a circle of flattened grass and no stone in the center and it appears that it was not finished, and the fifth crop circle (no pictures) was on top of a slope to the East of the main crop circle.


I lasted walked these fields May 20, 2019 for a special ritual but these circles were not there and when someone made then, I have no idea but they were too beautiful for words and maybe, one does not need to fly to Stonehenge in June to see crop circles man-made or otherwise. This moment took my breath completely away.

After I took a few moments to mediate, I saw this white dove in the clouds.
