2016 July Website Ad Page The Long JourneyReanalysis of the Irkutsk geoglyph pattern reveals the ground lines cover over 500 square miles.


In previous work it was successfully predicted that a geoglyph field should exist in Russia in the vicinity of Irkutsk (1). This prediction was made using a new theory that a civilization created a map of earth using a map of the stars surrounding the Summer Triangle.

In this work, the Irkutsk Geoglyph Field is now mapped in more detail.

Archaeological Data

Using Google Earth Maps, and Mapquest satellite images, which are two free sites that provide free satellite images of the same areas of earth at different seasons and at different observation angles, it is confirmed that a number of lines observed in Irkutsk, are physically present, and are not artifacts produced by incorrect handling of the photographs. As the lines observed in Google Earth satellite images can also be observed in Mapquest satellite images, only  Google satellite images are presented here.

For the following image a mosaic of over 200 high resolution images was overlapped directly onto a large scale Mercator-based satellite image of earth (Fig. 1). It should be noted that as expected some degree of distortion occurs at the northern latitudes. Overall the pattern extends some 100 miles in length.

The pattern shows several distinct breaks that suggests the pattern is extremely old. In many cases lines were found to travel across, and in some cases to travel along the path of large river beds. This suggests the lines were drawn before the rivers formed.

Discussion and Conclusions

The Irkutsk pattern shows an incomplete pattern extending over some 100 miles north to south. The pattern does not appear to be consistent with geological survey type lines. Further work is required to determine if they are any archaeological remains in the area consistent with the ground pattern observed.
