Guess what? We may have found the answers to some of the questions about the Blythe Intaglios (incised designs) discovered by US Army Air Corp pilot George A. Palmer in 1931. (See philipcoppens.com for a full discussion)
What are these intaglios? They are large geoglyphs in the desert floor outside Blythe, California in the United States that are best seen from the air. One, the giant, is very large – 167 feet long.
In addition to questions about their large size and how they were made, there are questions as to why were they place so that they can be best viewed only from the sky, why were they made to begin with, and why were they located in the desert of Blythe, California in the United States. We believe that we have discovered the answer to some of these questions.
The Blythe Intaglios were place under the path of flight of an orbital celestial object of earth that no longer exists. The celestial object could have been either a massive debris field or moon or even some combination of both. A debris field can coalesce into a moon or a moon can break apart into a debris field by action of the earth’s gravity. The exact nature of this celestial object is not yet known but this author believes that it was most likely a massive debris field made up of very large blocks of rock.
Well, the orbit of this celestial anomaly, passes over the Blythe Intaglios. In fact, one can extend the orbit to include the Meteor Crater in Arizona. This crater was caused by an impact 50,000 years ago. The orbit also extends northeast toward the Great Lakes where it turns southeast toward Africa. We discovered this orbit accidently back in the summer of 2009 and have used it as a reference line in conjunction with the plate tectonic movement of the continents to date various archaeological sites. (See our book: Secrets of Lost Earth.)
It is known that the ancients worshipped celestial objects and we believe that this object was also an object of worship. It also acted as a celestial reference point for locating places on the ground i.e. for fishing, hunting, etc.
Given the location of these Intaglios in the desert outside Blythe, we believe that they could date from the time of the Meteor Crater impact some 50,000 years ago. Dating these intaglios is very difficult. Dates of from 900 years to 2,000 years ago have be suggested but not confirmed.
