Mystery crop formation appears in Russia

Posted on Tuesday, 22 July, 2014 | Comment icon 30 comments

The formation turned up in a sunflower field last week. Image Credit:
A series of strange markings appeared in a sunflower field in the Krasnodar region last Thursday.
According to local news site Svet Mayakov, the formation covers an area approximately 40m in diameter and consists of a network of flattened crops in the shape of squares and rectangles of various sizes.

Nobody seemed to have any idea who had created the markings however one resident told a local news station that several of the villagers had witnessed a strange object rising up out of the field while shining a beam of light down on to the crops.

A video of a man walking through the formation was uploaded on Sunday to the Russian social network Vkontakte, providing a ground-based view of the flattened sunflowers. The region itself is no stranger to crop circles and is believed to account for almost 40% of all crop circle reports in Russia.

This crop circle is raggedy AF, bruh. Lol. It looks like some novice s*** on Minecraft. Totally bogus.... You can easily see that as much as 75% of the plants have been pulled up. Those that are laying down are only a tiny fraction of what should be laying down. Unless ET took 75% of what they knocked down and carried them off, this is a fraud. And not even a good one. TRUTH.

If ET was behind crop circles (giggle snort), looks like they would have better technology than to make the plants look like they'd been physically stomped on.

The Dutch test their "real" crop circles by placing apples on the ground. The crazy patterns that result are out of this world. Google search this to see this phenomenon. I may come back with a link if the edit time does not run out. Scroll all the way down the page to see the apples that spent time in the crop formations. Very interesting and I voted 5 stars for the sunflower crop circles in Russia. http://www.openminds...p-circles/25345 Thanks for this cc news UM-Bot!

It was just Ivan Braginsky coming to roll in the sunflowers. Any Hetalia fan can see this.
