From a new member,
Does somebody, anybody know why there are lots of circular symmetrical fields in Wahington & Idaho? Places like PASCO (Washington) and MALTA (Idaho) are totally surrounded by them. Ther must be a logical reason and won't it be a disappointment to find out...They look positively alien!

Welcome to GEH

There is nothing strange or alien about these circles. They are irrigation pivot fields.

Read this (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Center_pivot_irrigation) wikipedia article on it, it's very helpful.

Thanks so much for the speed and accuracy of reply, You'e provided a better answer in a day than a weeks worth of searching. Our children have now learned something that none of their classmates or teachers knew. I thought that the answer may be "normal" but in it's way it's almost as exciting as any.
