A Mysterious Celtic Cross has been discovered in Donegal forest.
Initially spotted by puzzled airline passengers flying over a forest in Ireland, drone footage has revealed a massive Celtic Cross that had been hidden until now.
The enormous arboreal wonder, which was seemingly first noticed this autumn, measures over 300 feet long and more than 200 feet wide. Although the source of the incredible design was deemed a mystery at first, a subsequent investigation determined who was responsible for the epic artwork.
According to the television network ITV, a man named Liam Emmery produced the breathtaking visual by planting different species of trees to form the shape of the iconic symbol. Unfortunately, Emmery passed away in 2010 and, incredibly, his family had actually forgotten about the project until they were contacted by the media about it.
"If he was here, we'd all have heard about it, because he would have been so proud," his wife told the news station. While we wish that Emmery had been able to take credit for his creation now that the world knows about it, we're guessing that, much like the drone that captured it on film, he's looking down and smiling over a job well done.

Mysterious Patterns Discovered on Mountains in China
Ten years ago, local shutterbug member Gao Shuxian of Chengdu, Sichuan Province, climbed up a newly built signal tower on the top of a mountain in Matou Village. He noticed a strange view over the north of the forest, but couldn’t figure out what it was. Ten years later, Gao checked the mountains using satellite maps online, and saw the mysterious shapes in the forest.

In 2002 the Smithsonian Magazine published an image of a half-faced Geoglyph that was discovered in Peru. Far to the north, beyond the city of Lima, are the ruins of Caral (circa 2600 B.C.). Just beyond this ancient complex of mounds and half-buried pyramids is an immense half-faced geoglyph.

This face is a north - south aligned profile, 300 meters in size, composing the east side of the island de las Palomas in the Straight of Gibraltar. This is the area that is said to be the furthest west Hercules went on one of his 12 labours he was required to perform. It is where the Pillars of Hercules are said to be located. Could this be a profile of Hercules? It can only be noticed from above so there may have been some unintentional alteration of the island due to its unknown existence.
