I was in Fulda, Germany, when I received news about a crop circle
in Finland. It appeared on 15 June, in a field of weeds that belongs
to a small community in Suomusjärvi, which is located at about
one hour's trip west from Helsinki. This is around the same region,
where most of the previous crop circles in Southern Finland have appeared,
an area of pre-historic settlements.
The formation is surprisingly complex in terms of geometry and lay pattern,
considering its small size and the fact that it's made in weeds. Randomly
distributed weed, including many plant species, don't provide such
"resolution" for complex designs as cereal crops that are
sown with regular intervals and stand firmly in an upright position.
The centers of the circles were clearly offset
from the mathematical midpoints, and they had a nice appearance even
when the crop was already growing up.
According to the two young boys, who spotted the formation, there
were originally no tracks leading to the formation. It was located
deep inside the field, apparently with no tractor lines available
for entry. When I arrived three days later on 18 June there were many
paths leading to the crop circle, and it was apparent that by walking
among the untouched weeds, you would instantly leave a visible path
The people at the comminity were all very excited about the crop
circle and the new energy it brought to them. I heard they'd had some
problems with each other, but the appearance of the crop circle took
their attention away from their problems. It was found when they were
celebrating someone's birthday. They decided to design a salad tray
according to the shape of the formation.
