In The Ground

Spring of 1983 - My sister, friend and I were strolling down on a small dirt road next to a small forest and swamp, at my parent's country house in St-Alphonse de Rodriguez . It was a calm night, and as we arrived at the end of this dirt road, if I wouldn't have looked down to see where I was walking, no one would have ever seen this thing.
Right beneath us in the middle of the dirt road, was a very strange perfect, circular impression formed in the ground. The impression was approximately 6 feet / 1.83 meter in diameter. All inner and outer rings were roughly 10 inches / 25.4 cm wide, except for the centered outer circle which was approximately 20 inches / 50.8 cm wide. The inner rings were about 2 inches /5.08 cm deep in the ground. There was no burnt grass, or anything particular observed on the ground except this unusual imprint.
I bent down and looked closely at it, and even followed the curved of the rings with my hands, just to get the feeling of this thing. All the circular edges were very smooth and the ground was compact underneath it. That last detail gave me the impression that the object which could have caused this was quite heavy or at least heavier than a car because of some car traces observed in this area which had not left any 2 inches / 5.08 cm deep impression in the ground Also, these car traces had seemingly passed over the circular trace, without destroying or altering its original shape... The circular trace had seemed to be quite recent.
A second circular imprint was observed a couple of feet away, seemingly caused by the same object. It had exactly all of the same characteristics of the first one, except that the circle's impression lacked of definition and precision in the ground. Only some parts of the circular impression were visible. The imprint's depth in the ground was merely 1 inch / 2.54cm. It was as if the object had "slightly" touched the ground.
That night, we all stood there for a while, trying to figure out what these traces were. We thought of some kind of structure which could have been carried to one of the houses, but it was too weird because there was - absolutely no trace of "dragging" on the ground around these two circles. - We search around that night and didn't find any other traces along the dirt road or anywhere around. I even came back alone the next morning in daylight, walk around the neighborhood to see if there was other similar traces, but never found any or any object/structure which could have caused this.
We talk about this event in the morning without making a big deal about it. We drove back to town, back to school and to the everyday life. I went back in the country a couple of weeks later, and found that the first trace was slowly washing away. At that time, I didn't know where to go with this story. Like the impression in the ground, this event always stayed engraved in my memory, and I always wished someday to find the right people and the right place to tell it.
Thank you very much to the witness for sending along the interesting report and diagram.
