Woodborough Hill of August 20, 2012 shows the current astronomy of Venus and Mercury using two artistic metaphors: of “ocean sunfish” swimming in Earth’s sky toward the Sun, or of “two serpents” from the Aztec Sunstone

A new crop picture near Woodborough Hill on August 20, 2012 represents a direct thematic continuation of many other crop pictures from earlier in the season. There have been a whole variety of beautiful field images which describe the current astronomy of planet Venus in terms of a “sunfish” or a “serpent”. Several crop pictures have also cited dates in the Mayan Long Count calendar. A summary of these previous crop pictures is listed in Table 1 below.

Venus and Mercury on August 20 as “sunfish” swimming down toward the Sun, with a Mayan calendar date of 11.15

The new crop picture at Woodborough Hill seems to be a direct thematic continuation of those earlier ones. First we can see the overall metaphor of an “ocean sunfish”, to describe planets Venus and Mercury as they “swim through Earth’s sky” toward the Sun (in bright crescent phase):

Next we can see a metaphor of “two serpents” as adapted from the Aztec Sunstone. This motif tells us to look for some kind of date in the Aztec-Mayan Long Count calendar, and indeed we find it as “11.15” for the current date of August 20 which is (12.19.19).11.15:

Finally we can see two large “crescents” to represent the planets Venus and Mercury in bright crescent phase, for a date of August 20, 2012:

Both of these planets are currently “swimming through Earth’s sky” toward the Sun. Mercury reached its maximal elongation a few days earlier on August 16. The current astronomy of Mercury was also shown in a spectacular crop picture at Santena, Italy on June 17. An earlier crop picture in the nearby field at Picked Hill on July 9 likewise showed planet Venus as a “serpent”, heading down towards the Sun.

Treating these paranormal field messages solely as “art”, they now constitute the greatest open-air art exhibit which our world has ever seen. A famous scientist once told me, when he saw that a Nobel Prize had been awarded unwisely: “One can only wonder about the committee!” Likewise today, we can only wonder about the art community in Britain, and the general society there, who continue to ignore (or even destroy) these magnificent works of field art, wherever they might come from, and whoever the true artists might be.
