Firefox Crop Circle in Google Earth

[UPDATE 24-Nov-2006: Google has added an aerial photo of the site to the built-in imagery so you can see the logo was really there. Here is the actual location . I also moved the image overlay below to the correct location. The image overlay is higher resolution as it was taken from a plane.]

Firefox Crop Circle in Google EarthA bunch of Firefox devotees set out to generate more PR for Firefox. They decided to make a huge accurate Firefox logo in a crop field (designs like these are called "crop circles" - see the "official" Google Earth crop circle collection). This was a big project involving a lot of planning, building the crop stompers (to lay down the vegetation), GPSes, walkie-talkies, a plane and a helicopter (for the aerial photos). I took one of their high-resolution aerial photos and have overlayed the photo of the Firefox Crop Circle in Google Earth . This is only an approximate location, as I wasn't able to find the coordinates for the field.

Learn more about how they made the Firefox Crop Circle here. More on the making of the Firefox Crop Circle (including a video).

    Firefox Crop Circle? :) And now we have to look for this image http://www.milliondollarhosting.net/upload/30735_footer.jpg in Nostradamus's prophesies? :)

    I'm pretty sure these are the coordinates:

    457'26"N 1236'48"W

    I have it tagged in Wikimapia.

    Look south of the circle and you can see people lying on their backs in the field!

    And what about the vehicles near the people? They form an F and an X. Am I right?

    The F actually consists of a plane!
