The flower of life?
It’s the 19th of April and we are hovering over a field of very short crop looking at a flower. The flower was very difficult to spot. It appeared to be about 15-20 meters from edge to edge, not a big circle. The crop was so short it made viewing the crop circle difficult.
We found that as we moved around the circle with the tricopter it almost appeared to vanish when looking from certain angles, it was difficult to spot even from the air. We theorised that we could see it better from certain angles because the lighter coloured underside of the leaves were facing a certain direction and that seemed to catch the light and make the whole thing more visible. When moving around the circle the darker side of the leafs didn’t show up as well.
We have never visited a crop circle quite like this one, it seemed to be very faint almost like a “ghost circle” that we often find in fields that have had formations in previous years. When flying low to the ground there appeared to be very little damage to the crop, in-fact it looked as though the crop was still very much alive, unlike normal circles we visit where the plant has been crunched into the ground and died. Perhaps the much talked about “Flower of life” is a good name for it?
The flight was uneventful and was completed in around four minutes once we had spotted the circle. Here is the aerial video:-
