Buffer geocoded Address

Hello,

I am using Python API to geocode a list of address, then buffer the geocoded address by 1 mile, what I have so far:

 

addlist=['adress1',
         'address2',
         'address3']

bgeocode=batch_geocode(addlist)


for address in bgeocode:
  

poly=buffer(geometries=[Geometry(address['location'])],in_sr=3857,
            distances=[1],unit='Miles')[0]
   
m1.draw(poly)



The result:

 

 

Now my question is why the result buffer looks like an ellipse not a circle? also, the circles are more than 1 mile ? is there another method to buffer the address and show them on the map, because here I am using the buffer for each address?

 

Thank you,

Ahmad
