      Part 1: Anomalies Confirmed in Pennsylvania and Arizona
      Randomly Downed Crops

      © 2005 by Linda Moulton Howe




      Unusual randomly downed oat crop was reported July 3, 1005, in Greene
      County, Pennsylvania,
      west of Uniontown in the far southwestern corner of the state.



      Oats randomly downed in long, linear sections that included complex internal
      patterns of "checkerboards,"
      multiple layers laid down in 90 degree angles to each other, and oat stems
      twisted so strongly at the soil level
      that beige discoloration was scattered throughout. Fire truck ladder

      August 1, 2005 Williamsburg, Ohio - On July 3, 2005, a Greene County,
      Pennsylvania resident and her husband (who have asked for name and town
      anonymity) saw oat plants in a field which seemed to be laid down in
      unusually straight 90 degree angles and sections. The couple contacted the
      local fire department which sent out a hook and ladder truck to see what the
      field looked like from 75 feet up. From that altitude, the woman took
      several photographs and sent one to the Coast to Coast AM radio website
      asking for more information. Eventually two weeks later, a viewer forwarded
      the photo and sender's e-mail to Jeffrey Wilson, Director, of the
      Independent Crop Circle Researchers' Association (ICCRA). Jeff contacted the
      couple by e-mail and she arranged to get permission from the farm owner and
      to meet Jeff and his ICCRA colleague Charles Lietzau, Ph.D., at the oat
      field for investigation on July 22, 2005.

      Interview:

      Jeffrey Wilson, Director, Independent Crop Circle Researchers' Association
      (ICCRA), Williamsburg, Ohio: "Two of her original photographs from the top
      of the fire truck ladder show discolored areas ­ the beige color, which
      are where the swirling of the oat plants was in the highest concentration
      and most dramatic. In other places, the plants were flattened in a pretty
      linear direction, although they are also downed in 90-degree perpendicular
      sections as well. But in the discolored areas, that's where the greatest
      swirling, twisting took place.
      THAT'S UNUSUAL, ISN'T IT?

      Yes, I think it is. I sent you a high resolution photo on that and you can
      see close-up on the twisted plants.

      to the ground.

      WHEN I SAW THE TWO PHOTOS FROM THE HOOK AND LADDER, I THOUGHT OF THE
      RANDOMLY DOWNED WHEAT IN THE TOLLESON SUBURB OF PHOENIX. (See Part 2 of this
      Earthfiles report
      and 052605 Earthfiles.)

      of Phoenix, Arizona.

      Yes, in Tolleson there was the similar effect where the plants were almost
      entirely flattened in between the tramlines. We had some speculation about
      why that might have occurred out in Tolleson, Arizona, because the farmer
      had these mounds of dirt that ran the length of the tramlines and was
      repeatedly flooding the field in between the tramlines. That might have had
      some effect on those barley plants.

      But in this case in Greene County, Pennsylvania, that is not what has
      happened. There are no mounds of dirt and they aren't flooding the field. I
      asked the farmer if he had done any kind of spraying or fertilizing of the
      field and they had not since planting. So there isn't any sort of
      over-fertilizing that knocked the plants down. But it's really unusual that
      the flattening would be generally contained within the tramlines.

      In both the Tolleson, Arizona, wheat fields and the Greene County,
      Pennsylvania, oat field, we confirmed there had been elongation of the
      growth nodes which we do not find in control plants collected away from the
      downed crop. (See Part 2 of this report for photographs of elongated growth
      nodes in Arizona investigation.)

      IN ONE OF THE LADDER SHOTS, IT SHOWS WHAT I CALL A 'PULSED EDGE' OF EVENLY
      SPACED STANDING PLANTS GOING ALONG SOME OF THE LONG STRETCHES OF DOWNED
      PLANTS. IT IS SOMETHING WE'VE FOUND IN ENGLISH CROP FORMATIONS. IT'S NOT
      WHAT I WOULD HAVE EXPECTED IN RANDOMLY DOWNED CROP. EVEN THOUGH PULSED EDGES
      WERE IN AN UNUSUAL RANDOMLY DOWNED WHEAT FIELD IN LINFIELD, PENNSYLVANIA,
      BACK IN MAY 1992.

      Right. We didn't expect to see the checkerboard in randomly downed either.



      "Checkerboard" Pattern in Greene County Oats

      for 80 feet
      in the randomly downed Greene County, Pennsylvania, field. Image © 2005 by
      Jeffrey Wilson, ICCRA.



      This one section of the photo went on square-by-square for about 80 feet. It
      continued on and on. That's what made it really unusual to walk through
      section by section.

      HAVE YOU EVER SEEN A CHECKERBOARD IN ANY OTHER PREVIOUS AMERICAN CROP
      FORMATION BEFORE?

      I can't say to this effect, no. Not to this size either. It is something we
      have not come across before.



      "Hairline Part" In Greene County Oats

      first reported on July 3, 2005. Image © 2005 by Jeffrey Wilson, ICCRA.



      ANOTHER PHOTO IS INTERESTING BECAUSE THE PLANTS ARE LAID DOWN LIKE PARTED
      HAIR AS WE'VE SEEN IN A VARIETY OF FORMATIONS OVER THE YEARS.

      Yes, and in this field in Greene County, Pennsylvania, there were several
      places in which this effect was laid down in the crop.



      Four Layers of Oats Going in Four Different Directions

      THERE IS A PHOTOGRAPH IN WHICH ONE OF YOU IS RAISING THE UPPER SURFACE SO
      YOU CAN SEE THE UNDERNEATH LAYERS. HOW MANY LAYERS DID YOU FIND
      CRISS-CROSSING EACH OTHER?


      Charles Lietzau, Ph.D., lifting up two layers to show to additional layers
      underneath
      laid down in different directions. Image © 2005 by Jeffrey Wilson, ICCRA.



      That's Dr. Charles Lietzau and he is lifting up two layers there and there
      are two additional layers underneath, all going in a different direction.
      He's got his hand pointing ­ the plant layer he has in his right hand is
      pointing toward the camera. The one he's got in his left hand is pointing
      toward the left side of the photo. And the layer directing beneath his hand
      is 180 degrees from that. And the layer underneath that is pointing away
      from the camera going into the picture. There are four layers there just in
      that small section and around him, the plants were flattened in 180 degrees
      side-by-side.

      This again is in a completely different part of the field. So, we saw a
      really large range of intricate lay patterns in the Greene County,
      Pennsylvania, randomly downed oat field.



      Could Wind and Rain Produce the Greene County Oats Anomalies?

      THIS GREENE COUNTY IN PA THAT OTHERS MIGHT CALL 'RANDOMLY DOWNED,' IT
      APPEARS TO HAVE EXTREMELY COMPLEX LAYS IN SECTIONS OF WHAT SOME WOULD SAY
      WAS RANDOMLY DOWNED, BUT THESE COMPLEX 90 DEGREE OVERLAYS UNDERNEATH AND THE
      CHECKER PATTERNS AND THE SPLIT HAIR WOULD CONTRADICT THAT THIS WAS JUST WIND
      AND WATER?

      Chuck Lietzau and I, we measured the growth nodes of the plants in Greene
      County, PA. We took samples across the field and it was to find a control
      area. There is one area all the way to the far right of the overall
      photographs that is fairly untouched and we used that as our control area.
      We measured the flattened plants in that area and we found the nodes in the
      flattened areas are elongated, which we have not found in either wind
      damaged or storm damaged fields, or in man-made hoaxed formations. We've
      repeatedly tested manmade formations and that node elongation does not
      occur. We've also tested random wind damaged, weather-damaged fields and
      node elongation does not occur there either.

      So, in this case in Greene County, Pennsylvania, that physical evidence
      alone tells us this was not just random wind damage. Beyond that, then we're
      seeing all these intricate lay patterns that you would normally associate
      with geometric crop formations. But the overall pattern in Pennsylvania does
      not seem to be geometric, but contains within what would be considered
      randomly downed are the 180 degree and 90 degree turns on a dime with the
      way the plants are flattened. It's certainly worth studying and seems to be
      part of a larger overall spectrum of possibilities within looking at crop
      formations. On one extreme, you have randomly downed events like Greene
      County and Tolleson, Arizona. Then on the other extreme, we have regular
      geometric patterns. In between, we have arrangements of circles and single
      circles by themselves. But I think we have to include randomly downed
      patterns like Greene County and Tolleson as part of the same effect.



      Underground River Flows Beneath
      Greene County, Pa. Oat Field


      Trees in back of oat field get water from a creek there. Below the oat
      field,
      the farmer discovered an underground river. Image © 2005 by Jeffrey Wilson,
      ICCRA.



      SURROUNDING THE OAT FIELD, ARE THERE ANY OTHER CROPS? I SEE TREES IN ONE OF
      THE PHOTOS, BUT I WONDERED IF THERE WERE ANY OTHER CROPS NEARBY?

      Not still standing. Farmers harvested the hay around there before. Across
      from the pat field are more hay fields. Adjacent to the oat field, the owner
      had a natural gas well drilled in the last three to four weeks.
      Interestingly enough, he said when they were drilling, they hit a really
      deep, thick layer of clay underneath this area of the field. Underneath the
      clay is an underground river that runs right beneath the formation. Then he
      hit a layer of rock. There is also a creek at the back of the field where
      the treeline is. So, this does fit right into that same pattern of being
      adjacent to water sources. There are also power lines that run on the
      opposite side of the road right in front of the field, too.

      WATER FLOWING UNDERNEATH, WHETHER IT'S LIMESTONE, CLAY OR WHATEVER, THE
      PRESENCE OF UNDERGROUND WATER SURE HAS BEEN LINKED TO A LOT OF CROP
      FORMATIONS.



      Why Randomly Downed and Not Geometric Patterns?

      DID THE FARMER OR ANY OF HIS NEIGHBORS SEE OR HEAR ANYTHING UNUSUAL ON OR
      ABOUT JULY 3RD?

      No, but the farmer did say that he did notice that the field was flattened
      after they had a weather front pass through the area. Not a lot of rain, but
      mostly lightning and gusty winds.

      BUT WHY WOULD THE OATS HAVE GONE DOWN IN ALL OF THESE COMPLEX PATTERNS? AND
      WHY WOULD IT LOOK SO SIMILAR TO THE FIELDS IN PHOENIX THAT ALREADY FROM YOUR
      TESTS AND LEVENGOOD'S TESTS INDICATE THAT GROWTH NODES WERE ELONGATED FROM
      SOME KIND OF ENERGY INTERACTING IN PHOENIX AND PROBABLY IN GREENE COUNTY,
      PA?

      Yes, that's a good question. The Arizona and Pennsylvania randomly downed
      crops certainly seem to be similar to each other in both their form and in
      the way they were laid down. Although in Tolleson, the randomly downed
      fields weren't associated with rainfall. But the farmer had the same high
      winds that he thinks were responsible there. Maybe that's part of the
      interaction in Pennsylvania. Winds could be providing energy for how some of
      the plants go down.

      WHETHER IT IS DONE BY AN ADVANCED INTELLIGENCE TAKING ADVANTAGE OF NATURAL
      AND ELECTROSTATIC AND OTHER ENERGIES SYSTEMS ON THE PLANET TO CREATE
      PATTERNS? OR IS IT ATMOSPHERIC PHENOMENA THAT HAS NOT BEEN DOCUMENTED
      BEFORE?

      It's up in the air at this point!

      THAT IS A PERSISTENT QUESTION: WHY ARE THE FORMATIONS IN ENGLAND SO
      BEAUTIFUL AND RECOGNIZABLE IN TERMS OF GEOMETRIES? AND IN THE UNITED STATES
      AND CANADA, CROP FORMATIONS HAVE ALWAYS BEEN ROUGHER. MAYBE THE GREENE
      COUNTY, PA. FIELD MIGHT HAVE STARTED OUT TO BE AN 8-FOLD GEOMETRY!

      Yeah, we've debated why you get geometry in some places and in others you
      get this randomly downed. It could be there is that turbulence or
      instability in the atmosphere that causes We've seen in many cases where you
      have an almost-geometry. You can see where the geometry should have been and
      just doesn't form quite correctly. We've seen many examples like that in the
      U. S.

      BIOPHYSICIST W. C. LEVENGOOD HAS FOUND IN HIS PHOENIX RANDOMLY DOWNED WHEAT
      INVESTIGATION THAT ENERGIES MUST HAVE INTERACTED THERE THAT ARE EXTREMELY
      UNUSUAL - NOT WHAT WOULD BE LINKED TO IRRIGATION AND WIND. ON TOP OF THAT,
      HE HAS FOUND MAGNETITE IN THE SOIL, AGAIN SOMETHING WE'VE FOUND OVER AND
      OVER AGAIN IN CROP CIRCLES, BUT IS NOT EVENLY DISTRIBUTED IN SOIL OUTSIDE OF
      CROP FORMATIONS. SO, IT WILL BE INTERESTING TO SEE IF THE SOIL FROM THE
      GREENE COUNTY, PENNSYLVANIA, RANDOMLY DOWNED OATS ALSO HAS MAGNETITE IN IT.

      It will be, yes. We did collect both plant and soil samples. It will take
      awhile to get them analyzed."

      Continued in Part 2 - Biophysicist W. C. Levengood's Tolleson, Arizona,
      report.
