Ontario, NEW YORK - October 2, 2010 (Purportedly Soybeans) Reported on October 2nd, but possibly present for some time before, this small “dumb-bell” style formation in Wayne County is the only “geometric” crop circle reported in North America in 2010 which may have been genuine. Â Ground shots taken after harvest show no helpful details.
Bakersfield, CALIFORNIA - Â June 22, 2010 Â (mature wheat?)
Long ’90’s-style “pictogram” first reported via a YouTube video as being in Monterey County, south of Salinas. Â Actually a man-made formation created for a rock group. Â A still shot shows large areas of randomly-downed crop near the circle, as is often the case in fields where non-mechanically-flattened formations have appeared.
Woodstock, VERMONT - Â June 1, 2010 Â (field grasses)
Area of randomly-downed plants found in same field as last year, with additions occurring over several days. Â Flattened plants show a markedly “fluid” lay, with multiple small swirled patches & some standing centers. Â Downed plants had distinct bending at multiple nodes on first day. Â NoÂ storms reported during relevant time-period. No storms.
Hidden Valley, CALFORNIA - Â early May, 2010 Â (grasses)
Witness reports many bright white & golden lights “zig-zagging & soaring across sky” in early morning hours, over many nights in same area. Â In mid-May witness found multiple small “crop circles” all over the valley. Â Fieldwork showed these to be somewhat circular flattened areas in which anthocyanin pigment was evident.
Poirino, Torino, ITALY - June, 2010. The largest (approx. 150 x 150 meters) and most elegant crop formation yet to appear in Italy was this lovely “flower” design reported on June 13th which crossed the boundary between 2 different crop fields. Â A dark disc-shaped aerial object was seen and photographed over the formation later in the summer.
