Crop circle appears in a field in Germany

The impressive and elaborate crop formation has been attracting thousands of visitors.
With an ornate design measuring 246ft in diameter, the mysterious pattern allegedly appeared overnight in a wheat field near Weilheim. It was discovered by a balloonist who happened to have been flying over the field the following day.

Farmer Christoph Huttner, who owns the field, maintains that he had nothing to do with the crop circle but has suggested that it may have been the work of students with nothing better to do during their summer holiday.

The intricate formation has since been attracting a great deal of interest with visitors arriving from far and wide to see it. Some believe that the pattern is man-made while others subscribe to a rather more supernatural explanation.

"I think it's almost impossible for this to appear overnight, and to do it in such an exact and precise manner," exclaimed one visitor. "How is this possible ?"

Nothing that can be crafted by the hand of man requires an extraterrestrial explanation. Crop circle readings are on par with reading tea leaves.

I just hope some farmer doesn't "landscape" their backsides with buckshot.

Okay, putting all the fun aside. Yes, he humans can make crop circles. We all know that. Do I want to do it, well yes. Do I want to spend that much time out in a corn field trying to be mathematically correct. No! Do I think others might. Yes. Are they? Well maybe. Are all crop circles, which are not really circles in many cases, being made by the locals. I don't think so. Why? Cause Joe-Bob and Billy-Luke would be to busy grading papers at the community college, and not have time for this and still make the big bucks. Did you get that? Do I think our government could be behind it. Wel... [More]

Crop circles use be just plain small circular indentations in crops or grass and called "saucer nests". They've evolved over time.

Lots of them. Heck, you can find a definition for practically anything you like.

Generally, someone will find some "meaning or message" in the patterns...regardless if man made or not...I haven't checked into this one yet... I always thought they were cool and clever and marveled at how they can be done so quickly. I don't put much thought into the "who or why". I just enjoy them when I see them. Some "makers" are obviously better skilled than others...some patterns are wonderfully laid down and some are sloppy...simple fact. I don't know the "why" some are nicer than others....other than as said...skill level.

I'll agree with this. Crop circling takes patience and a bit of talent to get it right and make it look nice. Perhaps....now I'm just thinking....if the stupidest scenario is true and aliens are making them, maybe they're just cosmic graffiti. An "alien work of art" so to speak. No meaning other than just boredom.
