Crop circle-expert Karen Alexander said: 'We have seen butterfly and bird patterns in the past, but this is the first jellyfish crop circle in the world. It is absolutely huge, three times the size of most patterns.'
The massive jellyfish thoroughly trounces the 350ft Wiltshire yin-yang symbol mysteriously cut last week into a barley field near Devizes, a crop circle hot spot.
The design is not strictly a circle, of course, and is a long way from the simple shapes that appeared in the 1980s and gave rise to the name 'crop circle'.
Some argue that the patterns are the work of artists with access to computers and plenty of volunteers - but crop circle enthusiasts say summer nights are just too short to accomplish such complex work secretly. (via damncoolpics)
Also impressive: the 350 foot circle that showed up this summer in Wiltshire.
Reports vary as to what it represents, but they agree it seems to be Mayan-inspired, perhaps a headdress or something to do with the calendar. The Telegraph's headline reports it as "an ancient Mayan symbol, said to be a sign of an impending apocalypse." What I love about this is the suggestion that the ancient Mayans had an elaborate symbol meaning "Apocalypse Impending!" How often would you use such a symbol? (I know, this won't seem so funny in a couple years when the world ends.)
