Excellent Paul Scott Anderson. Thanks for the professional data.

The huge designs are intriguing because one would figure a
formation a hundred meters wide would attract attention with the
dozens upon dozens of people who would be needed to form it, not
leave footprints, cigarette buts, hair, all over the formation.

How is the surveillance of fields going? Anyone ever catch
anyone or anything on camera making these huge complex designs?

I recall reading a news article from 1830's in my home town
about crop circles. We used to see them frequently in the Hudson
Valley before the huge surge in real estate development. Just
simple circles. Nothing like the gigantic displays seen in

We joke that the crop circles seen in England are made by French
