I usually don’t cover stories like this on astroengine, but I thought this was pretty captivating. A crop circle, measuring 150 metres in diameter appeared in a field last month, and at first no one knew what it meant, and filed it under “C” for “Cool Looking Circle.” That was until a retired astrophysicist saw the aerial photograph above the Wiltshire countryside near the village of Wroughton. Mike Reed realised that far from being an interesting pattern, it was in fact a graphical representation of the mathematical symbol π (Greek letter pi). Complex crop circles have appeared before featuring fractal patterns, but this one is a geometric shape that accurately depicts the first ten digits of π. (π = 3.141592653)

I agree. pi is infinite so the crop circle should've never stopped getting bigger. As a matter of fact, they should still be adding to it right now. Ya that's what real aliens would do.

Euler's constant isn't e. Euler's constant is the difference between the harmonic series and the natural logarithm. It comes out to 0.577... whatever (it goes on forever, of course).

If by 'infinite' you mean that pi can be expressed as a non-terminating decimal, then sure...
Every other real number can also be expressed as a non-termintaing decimal as well.
In that respect, there's nothing special about pi.
