    If you've got google earth, check out these coordinates.

    s 29:31'45" e 137:28'03"

    4.2Km high with a circumference of 15-28km!

    Any insights? It's pretty interesting.

    It's near my old house. Well, it's within a few hundred kilometres which is nothing in central-Australian terms. :D

    It's pretty cool IMO, especially how quickly it was made. :cool:

    Its quite cool and looking at how well it was done, most likely who ever did it had a GPS receiver and had plotted out the path before hand. It would have been much more difficult to do it without GPS and not *know* where your were in relation to the rest of the drawing.

    They reckon it was the army doing a bit of high-tech, high-cost piss-farting about.

    Wow, quite amazing.

    Clearly staged to throw us all off the trail of the real creator of this work. Not even Americans are as "American" as the clues left behind.

    I thought it was just some bored farmer in his ol' John Deere.
