Bosschenhoofd (the "Woodenhead" area). Reported 2nd August.
A 24-circle 2-ring formation, 16m overall diameter, found in the same field as the first 2011 circle in Holland on April 24th (http://www.bltresearch.com/robbert/easter2011.php). Largest ring is an irregular oval 8.8m x 10.1m in diameter, small ring is circular and 3.2m in diameter; both rings are 30 cm wide. Largest circle in formation measures 2m in diameter, smallest is 0.7m in diameter. Slightly more than half of the circle centres were in their geometric centres but small white dots on diagram indicate circles with off-centre centres; red dot indicates one circle which had a hole in its centre, and the small circle with 2 white dots indicates only circle which has a "double" centre.
It should be pointed out that, although many crop circle enthusiasts think that "geometric precision" is a hallmark of "genuine" crop formations (and conversely that irregularity in circle components or a generally "funky" overall "design" indicates that a formation is man-made), the scientific work indicates otherwise
. The consistent abnormalities documented in crop circle plants and soils by BLT in the 1990s (plantab
) and published in 1994, 1995 & 1999 as indicative of non-mechanical flattening of several hundred crop circles examined from North America and many other countries (published
) reveals that the circle-creation process can produce both very "geometric" formations and/or fairly irregular, less esthetically-pleasing events.
In fact, the plant and soil evidence indicates that randomly-downed patches of crop (often, but not always, found in the same fields as "geometric" circles) are sometimes affected in the same way by this as-yet-not-fully understood energy complex. For a recent documentation of these plant changes in randomly-downed crop found in conjunction with a clear "pictorial" crop circle in the UK see Part 1 of our 2009 UK circle report discussing the "Phoenix" crop formation: uk2009
