      Maybe someone got interrupted and couldn't finish. Is that a picture of a
      pyramid above it or just the edge of the plane?

      Cross posting:

      On July 5, 2005 a Greene County farmer found what may be the very first
      crop formation of its kind in the world. The farmer, who wishes to remain
      anonymous, discovered an approximately 44' x 35' rectangle of downed wheat
      as he was harvesting his field, at first thinking the downed-crop area had
      been caused by deer. Upon closer examination he realized there was a
      distinct design to the manner in which the plants were bent over, resulting
      in a "woven" or interlaced herringbone pattern throughout the flattened

      Photo taken by farmer on July 5th showing one straight edge of formation &
      beginning of
      herringbone pattern; cut chaff (on right) lies on top of the flattened crop.

      Photo taken by BLT fieldworker JoAnne Scarpellini on July 19th, looking
      section on left is where combine cut part of the formation on July 5th.

      The farmer reports that the 4 rows of wheat along the
      Southern edge of the field were not affected and that he saw no footprints
      or tracks in the flattened areas or along the grassy edge of the field.
      From the air the peculiar squarish overall design does not suggest a typical
      crop circle, and the herringbone lay of the plants is not apparent. The
      farmer had begun cutting along the Southern edge (closest to the green
      soybean field) of the wheat field and then swung across the very irregular
      East edge of the formation, obscuring some of the original detail there.

      Examination on the ground by the farmer on July 5th,
      and later on by BLT fieldworkers JoAnne Scarpellini and Nick Reiter on July
      19-20 & 23 showed that the intricate character of the lay was intact, except
      where the combine had either cut some of the rows or had blown chaff out
      over a part of the formation. The wheat had been planted in a 7" drill (7"
      apart) and there were 60 rows of flattened plants running E/W.

      Close-up of herringbone lay pattern, taken by farmer on July 5th.

      Close-up taken on July 19th which suggests that the herringbone pattern has
      created more by an interlacing of plants than an actual weave.

      The field examination revealed that a majority of
      the plants were bent over at the base, with the stems unbroken. No
      expulsion cavities were found and no visible node elongation was apparent.
      Although the farmer had cut the rest of the field, some seeds were obtained
      from control areas as well as seed-heads from within the formation so that
      germination studies can be conducted. Geiger-counter checks revealed
      nothing anomalous and there were no compass irregularities observed. Soil
      samples were taken to check for magnetic particle content, as well as soils
      for chemical analyses and a mycorrhizal fungi examination.

      Close examination of each row of flattened crop
      revealed that the first 4 rows were laid in one distinct pattern, the next 4
      rows in a different pattern, and that these two complex pattern sets
      repeated across all 60 rows. A diagram showing these lay details will be
      included in the final BLT Report.

      A neighbor and his wife report a strange lighted
      object in th sky on the same afternoon that the formation was discovered—a
      cloud-like object which seemed to be "flickering" in a manner similar to a
      fluorescent light—which boh husband and wife took at first to be
      lightning, although there were no storm clouds present and no thunder or
      rain. For 20 minutes or so they observed multiple flashing incidents, with
      very intense colors appearing for 2-3 seconds, the colors becoming more and
      more intense as the incidents continued. The husband, who works as a
      lineman for the local power company, stated that there was no "blue color,
      as in a transformer going off," but that the flashing looked more like an
      "ignition of some sort" inside the cloud.

      And the farmer reported that he observed that his
      farm dog (which does not live in the house) had suddenly exhibited very
      strange behavior, refusing to go outside as was its custom, attempting
      instead to stay inside the family's garage as close to the steps into the
      house as it could. This behavior began the day the crop formation was
      discovered and continued for the following 2 weeks.
