Two crop pictures which were drawn near one another, at Summers Lane on May 28, 2017, describe an upcoming total solar eclipse on August 21, 2017, and even provide a “night sky map” of that eclipse in the landscape, by showing the relative locations of “Sun and Moon” within a multi-layered “ring”, the bright star “Regulus” as a “small circle” nearby, and planet Mercury as a “bright “star” in the neighbouring field  

Two crop pictures which were drawn near one another, at Summers Lane on May 28, 2017, seem to provide a clever and artistic description of an upcoming total solar eclipse on August 21, 2017. They even provide a schematic “night sky map” of that “Sun-Moon” eclipse and two nearby bright objects (“Regulus” and “Mercury”), in the local landscape where they were drawn!  

The first of those two crop pictures resembles another “eclipse” style image which appeared near East Kennett on July 22, 2011:  

Here the eclipsed Sun and Moon have been drawn as thin circles within a five-layered “ring”, perhaps to suggest a “diamond ring” effect which is often seen during total solar eclipses (see or total-solar-eclipse). This first crop picture at Summers Lane also provides a metaphorical depiction of that eclipse as a “Seed of Life” from sacred geometry (see summers 1 comments). 

A bright star Regulus will lie close to the eclipsed Sun and Moon on August 21, 2017, which is why the crop artists added another “small circle” to represent “Regulus” on the right:  

The second crop picture which appeared at Summers Lane on May 28, 2017 resembles in style another “five-pointed star” crop picture, which appeared near the “Long Man of Wilmington” on July 3, 2014:  

We can count 80 different symbols within this second crop picture: 5 “points” on its outer “star”, 15 “small circles” as “pentagons” near the centre, and 60 tiny circles or “grapeshot” elsewhere. Its total number of symbols “80” happens to match an atomic number of 80 for “element mercury” in the Periodic Table. This is interesting, because that second “star” crop picture seems to represent “planet Mercury” in a night-sky map of the August 21, 2017 solar eclipse, which was drawn in the local landscape nearby.  

We can see a general overview of this “night sky map” in the slide below:  

Not only do the two crop pictures suggest “Mercury” (dashed green line), the eclipsed “Sun and Moon” (dashed yellow line), and a bright star “Regulus” nearby (a “small circle” to the upper left of that “ring”), but also a curved line of trees, further above in the landscape, resembles a curved line of five bright stars above Regulus in the constellation Leo 

We should be able to see four bright planets Venus, Jupiter, Mercury and Mars near the eclipsed Sun and Moon on August 21, 2017 (see august-21-2017-solar-eclipse-4-planets-bright-stars): 

Only “Mercury”, as the closest to that eclipse in Earth’s night sky, seems to have been drawn schematically in crops. 

Studying this “night sky map” from a more detailed perspective, we can see planet “Mercury” drawn in crops as a five-pointed “star” (above left), our eclipsed “Sun and Moon” as a five-layered “diamond ring” (below left), and a bright star “Regulus” drawn nearby as a “small circle” (below right):  

Interestingly enough, a crop tramline (within the “Sun and Moon” motif) matches the path of the solar ecliptic in a real, night-sky, computer-generated image (as shown above on the right).  

The overall landscape, close to where these two crop pictures appeared, shows the clear image of a “lion’s head”, which suggests the constellation Leo where that solar eclipse on August 21, 2017 will take place, next to its bright star Regulus:  

A small round knoll, which lies in a neighbouring field to the upper left of “Mercury” as a “five-pointed star”, may perhaps represent “Jupiter” in the night sky on August 21 (please see a slide above which shows all four planets during the eclipse). Two large round circles below that “lion’s neck” likewise suggest a partial overlap of the Sun and Moon on that day.  

Finally, a large “L” shape in the landscape, below the “lion’s head and neck”, stands in crop-circle symbology for “love”. 

Many different crop pictures in April of May of 2017 have alluded symbolically to an upcoming solar eclipse on August 21, 2017, so it may be an important event in time and space for humans on Earth.
