Perhaps it was caused by a close encounter of the 3-D kind.
This sophisticated crop circle uses an optical illusion to give the
impression of a three dimensional cube.
The creators of the 200ft wide design in a field of wheat at Clay
Hill near Warminster, Wiltshire remain a mystery.
The area is known as the UFO capital of Britain after repeated
unearthly objects and numerous crop circle appearances
over the last few decades.
An amazing four-dimensional crop circle has appeared in field of

However, those hoping that the mysterious circle is a message from
another world or a sign of a spacecraft landing are likely to
Over a decade ago pranksters Doug Bower and Dave Chorley admitted
that they had created 200 crop circles mostly around Warminster.
Mr Bower explained that after sketching them out in his studio
workshop they would take a plank and rope to a cornfield where they
would walk around with the rope in ever-increasing circles and make
a passageway leading to another identical circle.
Not that this very down to earth explanation halted wild conjecture
about their origins.
The crop circle phenomenon started in Westbury, just three miles
north of Warminster in August 1980 and last month 200 crop circles
have appeared in one elaborate formation in the nearby village of
Some believe Westbury's proximity to the prehistoric stone circles
at Stonehenge and Avebury is the reason for the strange goings-on.
Others say it is because it lies on the confluence of two so-called
ley-lines, which link spots said to have 'mystical energy'.
Conspiracy theorists put them down to the proximity of Salisbury
Plain, home of secret military work.
Crop circle expert Steve Alexander said of the latest design:
appears to be a cube which involves the circle makers using
techniques other than just flattening the crop.'
This spectacular design has appeared 40 miles away
