If I read this error message correctly,  I don't think the contents of 
circle.py are at all what you claim.  It looks like the first line of 
circle.py contains the text "Python 2.7.3 ..." which is certainly not 
what you intended or claimed. Please examine the contents of circle.py 
very carefully.
