Attack of the 600 foot Jellyfish!

I would like to bid an official welcome to our new gelatinous overlords, who have announced their presence by etching their image into wheat. This method of communicating with us puny Earth monkeys is time honoured amongst any and all passing extraterrestrials as any nutcase UFO enthusiast will happily tell you.

Seriously though, this is perhaps the most amazing crop circle I’ve ever seen. Having been created entirely overnight in a field in Oxfordshire (UK), at around 600ft long, it’s really quite an achievement.

There’s a little more on various news websites, like The Telegraph.

Crop circles, in my opinion, are one of the most innovative types of graffiti in recent times. Either that or they’re made by aliens*.

*Note: They’re probably not made by aliens.

    Too bad we don’t have a recent satellite photo.

    You know, none of the news articles I’ve read mention which direction it’s pointing. Bizarrely, it seems like a point which everyone’s managed to overlook!
    You’re quite right though… I’d suspect it might point north. Or perhaps towards the North Pacific Gyre to make an ecological statement.

    Hehe… Did you find a larger version in the end…?

    Not to mention a really cool design!

    No kidding. I’ve seen documentaries about how these people make things so geometrically and so fast, but I still find it astonishing!

    That is a masterful one. In what direction is the jelly swimming? Wouldn’t be surprised if it was significant somehow.

  7. I need a bigger version of that imaage. Ooh damn, I know what’s going up on my office wall tomorrow! /runs off to google

  8. That is really impressive!

    That is BEAUTIFUL. Must have been a hell of a team effort to do something like that!
