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

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

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.
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.

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
and 052605 Earthfiles.)

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.)
"Pulsed Edge" in Greene County Oats

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

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
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

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?

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
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
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
the farmer discovered an underground river. Image © 2005 by Jeffrey Wilson,
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
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,
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
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
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."
