- Hi, Jeff....
- A brand new lay pattern (the manner in which the plants
are laid down)--seen for the first time anywhere in the world so far as
we know - has now been documented in a wheat field in Greene County, Ohio.
- BLT's JoAnne Scarpellini and Nick Reiter confirm a clear,
multi-layer "Herringbone" interlacing or weave throughout the
whole formation. Discovered on July 5th by the farmer while harvesting,
this new formation is different in more ways than just how the plants are
flattened: it's also essentially a square, with no circular components
whatsoever, and two local witnesses report a highly unusual "cloud"
which hung in the otherwise cloud-less sky for 20 minutes, emitting strange
colored lights, on the same afternoon the formation was discovered.
- Seed-heads were taken the formation and from control
areas, as were multiple soil samples, and it is hoped that testing of these
materials may give us a clearer idea of whether this new event fits the
description "crop circle" or perhaps something else all together.
