Another unusual 'formation' in tall grass reported yesterday by
the same landowner as the previous Mansfield report of May 30,
consisting of two new additional flattened areas found. The
first is in the very same spot as the previous area from May 30
near the landowner's shop (the grass in that one had since
recovered and was almost completely back to normal). The second
is near the kennel on the property, and the largest one yet at
several feet across and very flat to the ground. As before, no
similar patterns found in any other surrounding grass areas or

While again these are non-geometric flattenings and may be only
the result of lodging / wind damage, the landowner reported no
wind or rain the previous night and dry ground in the morning,
although the wind and rain did pick up through the day
yesterday. What makes these cases interesting is the finding of
stretched / 'permanently' bent nodes on the grass stalks from
inside the flattened areas and other unusual circumstances, ie
the agitated behaviour of the family cat and computer / phone
problems the same night (from the May 30 occurrence).

The similar random flattenings in the hay field at Duncan, BC on
May 29 also contained stretched nodes up to four times normal
length as well as ruptured nodes (photos of these from both
cases available soon). It is also interesting to note that there
were clumps of dandelions inside the flattened areas which were
still standing upright with their white 'puffball' seed heads
still intact.

These anomalies, often found in 'regular' crop formations, have
also been found in other areas of 'randomly downed crop' over
the years, suggesting that perhaps not all such areas are just
wind damage but some may be connected somehow to whatever forms
the other circular and geometric patterns. For reference, see
Judy Arndt's (Crop Circle Quest and CCCRN field research
assistant) report on interesting comparison studies done in
Alberta in 2000:


The landowner is requesting privacy as to name, specific
location and other unusual reported events.

This is the third report for 2002.

Crop Watch is an annual research project of CCCRN, including
field investigations / ground studies of formations, aerial
surveillance and farming / media awareness initiatives, in
particular during the prime August / September 'circle season'
on the Canadian prairies
