Mysteries of the Day

Wings Over the West Coast, originally uploaded by Shirley Buxton.

Flying from Seattle to Ontario, Ca. on Monday, far beneath me, I spotted these designs. I tried to get Jerry to identify them for me, but from he sat, he could not see them. Does anyone have an idea what they are? They look to be gigantic pie charts.

On Tuesday, here in Crestline, as I sat in a comfy chair, looking out my dining room window, I saw these large birds. At first only one flew, then later I saw both of these together. I’m trying to think they are eagles, but I don’t know much about birds, and despite checking out a field guide this morning, I cannot identify them. Can anyone help me with this?
It’s a day for mysteries…be careful, now! (Not a mystery is that Rebecca is much better–home now. Thanks for your concern.)

Monday Morning Mysteries

Well, last week’s mystery of the UFOs in Texas has been solved.(At least to the satisfaction of some.) But here at the beginning of the week, a couple of other unexplained phenomena have emerged, and knowing the caliber of you who read here, I’m submitting them for your examination. Smack your Sherlock hat onto your head, gather your investigative tools, and solve these mysteries, please.

In Herefordshire, England, Russell Bird snapped this picture of a flock of sheep who strangely formed a circle, baffling the farmers and others who saw this strange occurrence. There were about 100 in the ring. Strangely, another circle of sheep had formed in a pasture three fields over. The formations lasted about ten minutes before dispersing.

Clues here.

Closer to home is this mystery surrounding the Empire State Building.

NEW YORK — It’s been dubbed the “Empire State Building Effect.” And now questions are being raised as to whether the famous skyscraper may really be Manhattan’s version of the Bermuda Triangle.

Every day about 10-15 cars and trucks simply stop working within a 5-block radius of the 102-story building, according to a report in the New York Daily News.

In one recent incident, a person said he had to lock his vehicle manually because the keyless remote-controlled lock was disabled. He came back to find he was locked out and had to call a car service which used a crowbar to get the door open, the Daily News writes.

New York City clues here.

Okay, there you are–two mysteries laid out for you to solve. Jerry and I must run to Phoenix today and won’t be home until tomorrow, although I might be able to check my site this evening–not sure. Anyway, I’ll be expecting your wise comments and proffered solutions.
