August 22, 2001 Alton Barnes, England - Author and researcher, Lucy Pringle, has been flying over crop formations to take aerial photographs and to investigate the plants and soils of English crop formations since the mysterious patterns began evolving from simple circles and rings in 1989. She has been in hundreds. But this formation that was discovered in Ron Read's wheat field on a high plateau of Milk Hill, Wiltshire on Sunday, August 12, overwhelmed her. After measurements were made, there were 409 circles of varying sizes divided into six curved arms stretching 240 meters (787 feet) from one side to the other. The largest central circle was 72 feet in diameter and the smallest little circles that dotted along the large arms were no more than 40 inches in diameter.
