While I am waiting for additional confirmation from a second source... what sets this crop circle apart from any other that I have seen is that allegedly the corn is bent at various levels... "cornstalks were smoothly bent above ground throughout the formation at heights ranging from 2 inches to 4 feet"
for my metric friends... 5 - 122 cm...
if has ever heard or read about circles being created at various levels and heights if you could please provide me a link or path to obtain further information, it would be greatly appreciated.
pretty impressive and detailed investigation.I grew up on farmland and know firsthand how difficult it is to bend corn stalks without creasing or breaking them.The varying levels and stair stepped areas are very intricate indeed abd must have been confusing at first.Linda Moulton Howe,wasn't she the one who did cattle mutilation investigations?I believe she was also one of the speakers at the MIT conference on abductions in 1992(?).Thanks for the links...
Linda Moulton Howe is not very credible at all, there are threads on here about her, try searching her name on here She will believe anything she gets told and will promote it reguardless whether it is genuine or not.
"The most hilarious web posting we have read in a very long time comes from Whitley Strieber's "Unknown Country", dated 9/30/05. Linda Moulton Howe is described as "our Dreamland science reporter". We ask - what, if any, are the scientific qualifications of this pleasant but extremely gullible lady?? Inquiring minds would like to know!"
Here's another very good example of Linda Moulton Howe and her promotions of fake/hoax material etc.
Carrots & Crop Circles By George Wingfield Posted May 8, 2011
Last weekend saw the 23rd annual Ozark UFO Conference in Eureka Springs, AR, which attracted up to 600 attendees and was very successful. Among outstanding presentations was one made by Peter Davenport, Director of the National UFO Reporting Center (http://www.nuforc.org/) and another by Travis Walton (www.travis-walton.com), abducted by a UFO in Arizona in 1975 and probably the most convincing abduction case ever.
Some other presentations contained highly questionable claims which could not be challenged by other researchers like me due to the lack of an open ‘question and answer’ session that would have allowed this. The only reason that I am circulating this e-mail is that I believe one should speak out when one knows for certain that a claim is untrue. Obviously one cannot address all the dubious claims that are made at UFO conferences and on Internet websites since that would take up every waking minute of one’s time, but there have been occasions during past Ozark UFO conferences where such speaking out has been possible. A notable instance was in 1996 when I was able to reveal that Ray Santilli’s “Alien Autopsy” footage and his associated claims were completely fraudulent.
As part of Linda Moulton Howe’s presentation this year the so-called CARET drones, pictures of which appeared on the Internet in 2007, were promoted as being genuine craft that had been built using extraterrestrial technology at a secret laboratory in Palo Alto, CA. Various e-mails to Coast to Coast AM Radio and to Linda Howe’s Earthfiles website (www.earthfiles.com) with alleged sightings and photos of the drones were sent by people calling themselves ‘Isaac’, ‘Chad’, ‘Deborah’, ‘Raj’, etc. None of these informants was visible or contactable as a real person and their identities were clearly false. The acronym CARET supposedly stands for “Commercial Application Research for Extraterrestrial Technology”. In fact it is more likely a homonym for the “carrot” which was dangled in front of eager ufologists like Linda who took the bait.
An excellent article on the drones and CARET documents by then MUFON International Director James Carrion appeared in the MUFON UFO Journal of April 2008 concluding that there was every indication that the whole thing was a highly elaborate hoax. What Carrion failed to mention at the time was that many of the metal parts which made up these “craft” were unmistakably bicycle components which had been sectioned or modified. Ball bearing race cages, modified bicycle wheel rims and bicycle derailleur idler-arm gear wheels can be clearly seen in the CARET photos by experienced bicyclists. This was communicated to Linda in 2007 by Bob Soetebier (www.BikeBob. org) but she chose to ignore his warning. The CARET drones also bore cryptic symbols, supposedly of extraterrestrial origin. On Thursday, July 19, 2007, NPR radio affiliate KWMU broadcast a "St. Louis on the Air" show on cryptography during which someone named ‘Isaac’ called in. From what he said then and the fact that he had attended a "2600 meetup for Hackers and Phreaks” there is a strong possibility that this ‘Isaac’ --from the St Louis, MO, area-- was the man who created the CARET drones hoax. A further letter from Bicycle Bob to this effect can be found at the following link:
Apart from promoting the hoaxed CARET drones as genuine products of extraterrestrial technology, Linda Moulton Howe also presented several photos of elaborate crop circles in England which she suggested were the product of extraterrestrial intelligence. This is a subject which I have studied at great length and I can give the assurance that the vast majority, if not 100%, of these formations that have appeared in England in recent years are human-made. They are secretly made by certain small groups of people who describe themselves as creators of field art but who delight in deceiving croppies and ufologists in just the same way that ‘Isaac’ and his friends weave deception on the Internet. At least three of the crop circle formations shown as part of Linda’s presentation were made by people whom I know. One formation shown was the subject of a letter from me to the MUFON UFO Journal of February 2011. That explained just how the formation was made and who made it. Another, the famous Pi crop circle formation of 2008, which encoded the value of π to an accuracy of ten digits, was partly the work of a good friend of mine. He collaborated with veteran circlemaker Julian Richardson who has been making the best English crop circles since 1990. The Pi formation caused great excitement for those who interpreted it as being the result of alien intelligence, but I can assure you there is absolutely nothing extraterrestrial about it.
Let me quote something which sums up this unfortunate situation very precisely:-
The road of ufology is littered with dead-end tales of alleged crashed saucers, alien treaties, imminent disclosure and other false claims made by shadowy figures with assumed names, false identities and alleged insider information. Many respected ufologists have let their guard down when approached by an insider claiming altruistic motives for revealing their deepest, darkest secrets. Hoaxers and disinformation agents don’t play nice and the carrot they dangle can look very enticing to those of us who passionately want to find out the truth. To further darken the already murky ufological waters, the Internet has become the spawning ground of choice for new UFO myths, memes, and disinformation. Virtual witnesses flourish in this anonymous environment, making incredible claims that are consumed by a hungry public more than willing to believe.
–James Carrion, then MUFON International Director, writing in the MUFON UFO Journal, April 2008.
Maybe I am taking the whole business of the fantastical claims that are made by some ufologists and some claims presented at UFO conferences far too seriously. Perhaps I should accept that some segments of the UFO subject are merely a mythology that has been built up by some UFO “experts” and gurus over the last sixty odd years. Should we relax and accept such fiction and fantasy like Trekkies do at their conventions? I don’t think so since I do believe that UFOs are real and that we should investigate them from a scientific standpoint. Anyone who doubts their reality should read Leslie Kean’s excellent book: UFOs Generals, Pilots, and Government Officials Go on the Record (Harmony Books, 2010). Besides, we are not being truthful to those new to the subject if we say nothing about claims that we absolutely know to be false. It also brings the whole subject of ufology into disrepute.

Comment by Colin Andrews:
I am aware of several other important cases involving the UFO and crop circle subjects in which Linda Moulton Howe has been informed of vital facts which she has chosen to ignore in favour of telling the stories as pumped up inaccuracies, which is fine for show biz, and her regular radio programs but does nothing to enhance the professionalism surrounding these subjects nor most importantly the truth.
Prof. A.J. Gevaerd, the well known and highly respected researcher from Brazil tried to tell her what he knew about a hoaxed abduction claim in that country but she ignored his vital information (Open letter HERE).
I am also aware of several cases where those who have made certain crop circles and have admitted this to her, one which she claims formed in front of her as she watched from a nearby hill. She again chose not to accept the rational truth in favour of the irrational magic. That said her early work into cattle mutilations was well done.
I agree with George Wingfield, that we expect a much higher standard from such prominent researchers as Linda Moulton-Howe.
The thing about this crop circle that I find absolutely amazing is what was not officailly reported or if it was... was not made very clear... well let me first say... Linda Louton Howe aside...
I know people that have seen the circle in person... whose contact info I can provide for to any one who wants to do serious research onto this exact circle, but out of their privacy, i will not reveal without thier consent...
but what they told me...
as reported, it was true that some parts of this circle were "gently bent" at 12 inches above the ground.... a pretty amazing feat in itself... if you really think about it.... but what these eyewitnesses told me...
the circle was place on slighly elevated ground... like a gentle hill or mound... at the bottom of the mound, this is where it was bent at the 12 inch mark... but near the top of this little mound... it was bent at ground level... using surveying equipment, it was determined that the circle was perfectly parallel to flat gound!
theadorethedog: I took a picture yesterday..and would appreciate any input from the experts. but it won't download on to this sight. what is my other otion for this to be analized?
