The astronomy of Venus as shown at Picked Hill: a metaphorical “sunfish” swimming down through the stars of Taurus on July 9, 2012 A new crop picture at Picked Hill on July 9, 2012 shows a similar style to three other crop pictures from Woodborough Hill on June 9, Milk Hill on June 25, or Stanton St. Bernard on June 29:

All three of those previous crop pictures showed the current astronomy of Venus in metaphorical form. Woodborough Hill compared the emergence of planet Venus away from the bright glare of our Sun on June 10 (after transit) to an “ocean sunfish” swimming up into the sky (see WoodboroughHil). Milk Hill compared the rise of Venus amid the stars of Taurus on June 25 to a “sunfish” or “serpent” slithering up into the morning sky (see milkhil or Crop-circles-capture-transit-Venus-phenomenon-planet-passes-Earth-Sun). Stanton St, Bernard compared the presence of bright Venus among five stars of Taurus on July 5-6 to a “cross atop a stellar cathedral” (see stantonstbernard2 or Divine-SPIRE-ation-New-crop-circles-likened-architecture-Westminster-Abbey-holy-theme).Now Picked Hill shows a fourth original metaphor of a similar kind, by comparing planet Venus to a “sunfish swimming down through the stars of Taurus” on July 9 or 10:

Venus was fairly low in the sky on June 29-30 when the crop picture at Stanton St. Bernard (or “SSB”) appeared with its “four-pointed star shape” for Venus (shown again at Picked Hill). Then it rose among the stars of Taurus to reach a peak in altitude (away from the Sun) on July 5-6. Finally by July 9-10, Venus had begun to turn down once again towards the Sun, as it heads eventually for superior conjunction on March 28, 2013. The number of thin lines in the “head” of that “sunfish” was drawn as 10 at Woodborough or Milk Hill to represent “June 10”, when Venus first emerged after transit, and was again drawn as 10 at Picked Hill. Planet Venus in each case was drawn as a “thin crescent” because that is how it appears now in our morning sky. We can see the path of Venus through our sunrise sky more clearly by the following diagram:

Venus was very low in the sky (just above our Sun) on June 10, after solar transit or inferior conjunction on June 6. By June 20 it had risen to below the five stars of Taurus. Then by July 5-6, it entered a triangular space created by those five stars in Taurus, while reaching its maximal angular distance away from the Sun in Earth’s sky. By July 9-10 it had begun to turn downward towards the Sun, while by July 20 it will once again lie far below the five stars of Taurus. The other “yellow object” shown in these sky diagrams is Jupiter. Strangely enough, the two crop pictures shown at Stanton St. Bernard on June 29 or Picked Hill on July 9 had to be flipped horizontally in order to match their corresponding sky images. Stanton showed this process explicitly as a kind of “reflection” about its central axis, while Picked Hill showed a “counter-clockwise” flow of day-circles which had to be flipped to “clockwise”. Why did those crop artists draw this metaphorical diagram next to Picked Hill? We can only guess, but it may be because Picked Hill was meant to symbolize the large mass of our “Sun”, towards which planet Venus began to turn on July 9-10:

What new field images will those amazing crop artists show us next? Could any modern artist living on Earth today be so clever?
