Our team visited this formation on Sunday 31st May. The crop had been gently flattened and was rebounding quite a lot, making it diffiuclt to walk over it in some places.
In the 'tentacles' the barley was laid almost like a plait, with crop coming from the left and then the right and then the left, each time overlapping.
You can see from the groundshots that from ground level, inside the tenticles was almost like being at the base of a pipe, with the laid crop blending up the sides to the standing crops.
We were sent a link by Andrew Pyrka to a video on You Tube depicting how the earth's magnetic field appears as our planet moves through space protecting itself from the rays and flares of the sun. Have a look at this amazing link and see if you can see similarities in the shapes from this footage to this crop circle design.
This is an amazing formation - it's incomprehensible what 2009 can bring next!
