Huge Bavarian Crop Circle Puzzles Crowds
The Local ^ | 30 Jul 2014

Posted on 07/31/2014 12:48:05 PM PDT by nickcarraway

A mysterious crop circle in Bavaria has attracted thousands of visitors since it was spotted in a wheat field last week.

The circle in Raisting, upper Bavaria, has a diameter of 75 metres and is formed of three rings.

It was discovered last week by hot air balloonists and word quickly spread through internet forums of the find.

“They sang, danced, played guitar... and slept in the field,” a woman who lives nearby said of the area’s new visitors to the site, the Süddeutsche Zeitung reported.

Many visitors believe it was not formed by humans.

“This is a technology which we haven’t mastered yet," said one visitor to the newspaper. “They want to show us – we are here, we love you.”

The crop circle is near the antennas of a former communication station which was used to broadcast the first moon landing in 1969 to European households.

Christop Huttner, the farmer who owns the field, said he had not created the crop circle.

“This is very difficult [to do] and really well done,” he said. “I don’t know how they managed it. There are no tyre tracks, nothing at all.”

He said the damage to the crops had cost him a few hundred euros.

Some people are too willing to look for an explanation that comes from another planet.

Bunkum. We were making those on a small scale back in 1956, Farmington NM alfalfa fields. Got called down for messing with those hay fields by our dad and the owner.

Wow! You got all that from a bunch of stomped-down corn stalks? Wanna bet the person skips around to the music, has a glazed look in their eyes, and has a daisy chain in their hair.

I recognize the guy. This is a self-portrait. He is not holding the probe in this shot, but he has one.

That’s one way to get top dollar on your crops. You make a nice design in your field and charge admission.

Proabably made by humans. But if so, still surprising that such elaborate patterns can be accomplished without detection of the perpetrators during the act.

Actually they have been detected and filmed in the act.

Creating the recent one in Germany? I didn't see that in the article. I know people have been seen creating some of these patterns around the world.

Yeah, it’s always the same. “Sure some of them are hoaxes but the real ones are different”. Occam’s razor.

Let’s see, it’s within walking distance of a building that’s probably filled with smart people doing boring jobs. Yup, must be aliens.

There’s a guy who makes incredible sand pictures on the beach, much more elaborate. If only he had a sense of humor he would do it at night on deserted beaches.

oh its easy to skirt detection, when you are the owner of the land, lol. He is probably making a bundle this week from all those air heads. Elaborate patterns in circular form are easy to make. Take a rope spiked to the radii point, then merely walk in a circle. And a few other techniques to make the interior cuts - all well known to those of us who have participated in such pranks before.

Helicopter with long rope, dangling a guy with plank-rope that creates these things. After it is done, the helicopter with the long rope picks him up.

End of Story.
