and I couldn’t see anything from atop the sprayer 16 feet off the ground.”

- Colby Squires, Stettler Crop Sprayer

Eight years ago on September 16, 2001, farmer Ken Bickford discovered a 422-foot-diameter hexagram in his Red Deer, Alberta, wheat field. The swath on the left was his first drive through on his combine. After that, Mr. Bickford drove around the formation to preserve it. A pilot said he flew over the wheat hexagram on September 2, 2001, but did not report it. Aerial photograph © 2001 by Lyle Ford, CCCRN. Also see:  092201 Earthfiles.
