Kansas fields, fed by the Ogallala Aquifer. [Earth Observatory (nasa.gov)]
Aliens abound on the plains.
Wow, there’s a lot more of those than it looked like there were from the plane.
why the circle shape I wonder?
When you drive by them you can see that their irrigation systems are big sprinklers on wheels.
They are attached to a central point and rotate around the field, making a big circle.
Genius! I love simple stuff like that. Thank you for the explanation.
Hey, I can see my house from here!
Reminds me of a pretty cool album… http://cdbaby.com/cd/expassionates
Nice. Joel’s reppin’ the Ogallala. Unfortunately, this massive aquifer is being rapidly drained by the corn/beef industry in the area.
