Over a decade ago, a local by the name of Gao Shuxian of Chengdu, Sichuan Province climbed onto a newly built tower on top of a mountain in Matou, once there, while enjoying the beautiful landscape in front of him, he noticed something mysterious at the northern part of the forest, at that time he was unable to figure out what he was looking at. Ten years after he visited the region again, only this time, he did so using satellite maps and once again noticed the mysterious and odd shapes in the forest.
“When I was standing on the signal tower 10 years ago, I saw that some trees in the cedar woods were somewhat different from the other trees. They were growing in lined radial patterns. I thought it was amazing, but I was unable to get the whole picture because the signal tower I was standing on was not high enough,” Gao told a reporter, according to Tencent News.
While looking at satellite imagery, Gao identified three patterns formed by the trees which oddly resembled the Chinese Character “犇,” character used for “go fast”. This Chinese character is created by three “bull” characters “牛” side by side.
The mysterious characters in the forest spread from north to southwest covering over 1,200 acres of beautiful forests.
Interestingly, the mysterious pattern clearly stands out from the rest of the trees having a distinctive color and shape. The entire pattern is around 1km long and over 600 meters wide.
So far, no one has been able to fully explain or understand what the curious patterns are. Were they created on purpose? Do they have a meaning behind them? Or is it possible that this is the result of Mother Nature and Pareidolia playing tricks with our mind?
According to the discovered of the mysterious patterns, these are located at latitude of 30 degrees: a location connected to numerous mysteries.
