I have large fields on all sides of me and they take a LOT of hard word,money,and machinery just to manage let alone carve-out true geo-works of art in them!
You'd have to be a stealth-ninja to pull off something of this magnitude without being discovered IMO...all of the farmers/ranchers I know are VERY aware when someone is on their properties andmany use tech or simply have someone on hand to avoid those who would steal,poison,or otherwise damage their lands.
For the first time ever,I'm "considering" the presence of a mugh higher mind than ours,seriously...I can't wrap mine around how this was done.

The crop was very high, approx 4.5 foot so was difficult whilst in the jelly fish to establish exactly which part we were in but we were towards the head as we enetered.
Was an experience!

Me too! I try to have an open mind, though I am really interested in this, as it has those long tendrils. I can see how that could be computer generated in the image and design, but how do they make it?
Coming Solar Storm? Weird too about that Air France plane going down...just wierd!
Here is a clip from the article...for skeptics...
Sceptics might suggest that someone in Oxfordshire is trying to muscle in on Wiltshire's dominance in the crop circle stakes - from April to the September harvest the mystery patterns are believed to bring mil
lions of pounds in tourism to the western county
Another interesting point that drew my attention was the fact it pulled the attention of the U.S. Military. I am pretty sure they were not there as sight seekers or tourists . According to witnesses, there was the appearance of a military helicopter circling the formation very low to the ground. The helicopter circled the formation for a few minutes and then flew off in the direction of Horicon Marsh. It flew the length of the marsh and then flew back again in the direction of the crop circle. Eventually flying off towards the Southeast and out of sight of the spectators. When Brad and I were down there we also observed a military helicopter hoovering over the approximate area then disappearing from view over the 'ledge' area.
Wilson's research team had observed the initial helicopter sighting. After the helicopter left the area, they also noticed that they were also being observed from the ground.
"After the helicopter left and our team settled down, we returned to gathering additional soil and plant samples from the field. After about 40-45 minutes, I noticed that we were also under surveillance on the ground. Looking up the hill towards Mr. Rantala’s workshop, I noticed a man in a camouflage uniform watching us with binoculars."
This 'Jellyfish' in fairly mature (4 or so feet barley) is quite a contrast to previous formations and cannot be seen from the local landscape. I had the impression that there had already been a few visitors based on the fairly flat centres in the tail (southern side) when I visited at around 1:30pm on Saturday 30th, confirmed later by finding muddy traces further up possibly from an early morning visitor or two. The crop was generally showing signs of straightening up again. Fairly subtle warm energy could be felt several inches south of centre around the few spirals close to the southern tail end that I checked.
My visit cut somewhat short by way of a wildlife preservation warden (specifically birds) waving arms around, however no signs of human hoaxing were perceived throughout the formation.

Any one know for how long we have been seeing crop circles?
Although thought by many to be a phenomena of the 20th Century, crop circles and formations have been around for a very long time, and records even date back well before the invention of the camera. The most well known positive depiction of a crop circle is found in a woodcut made in 1678 with the title 'Strange News out of Hartford-shire’. It depicts a devil-like creature cutting out a pattern in a crop with a scythe. The woodcut has text, which told of a greedy farmer, who, having refused to pay a mower a reasonable rate for reaping his oats, swore that he would rather have the Devil do the work. The very following morning, the farmer awoke to find his crop had been harvested, but done so in such an amazing manner, with rounded circles of incredible exactness that no human could have done the same within the period and darkness of one night. The farmer was so afraid that he could not enter the field to collect his harvest.
