The original "Mowing Devil" lit up the field the night before as though it was in "flame". So perhaps that incident was something more anomalous; a UFO or some plasma phenomenon.

It has been a very poor season thus far. Some deep shenannigans at play which I shall dedicate another post to later. Here I raise the strange phenomena of 'ghosting'.

Ghosting is the reappearance in shadow form of the previous year's design in the same place on a field. It is rare, and there seems no botanical reason why the crop should flop a second time after the design has been mown out and the field turned over and reseeded in a fresh bed, yet these ghost patterns appear from time to time. I assume these designs must be laced with chemical contaminants that alter the soil pH in some way that affects the subsequent season's growth. Either that, or there really are microwave radiation methods used in some formations which leave a residual effect in the ground. Or maybe they are starship landing sites after all. Any thoughts?

eta, the video shows the 2018 crop circle first and the 2019 ghost after.

This is a current sample of a 2019 ghost of one of last year's designs.

A thought:
Some of the flattened stalks remain in the field because mechanized reaping machines aren't designed to pick up horizontal crops. This plant matter gets mulched into the soil by plough or seed drill and affects the next years growth. This might explain the 'raggy' edges seen in year two's design - it's been driven over by a tractor.
I'll go even further and suggest it could also be the result of a chemical marker left in the soil by the immature plants. A kind of warning signal.

Maybe those examples are ones which haven't been ploughed thoroughly enough. Thinking on... shouldn't there be crop rotation in practice? So year two should be a different species of plant altogether.
Might also be a great concentration of fertiliser in those areas as it wasn't removed by the plants growing 'last year'.

The son of the man who first created mysterious crop circles has spoken about his father’s legacy and how he discovered the truth.
Despite conspiracy theorists being convinced that aliens were behind the phenomenon, the crop circle mystery was finally solved in 1987.
The tricksters who spent 10 years making them in the 70s and 80s were revealed to be Dave Chorley, from Winchester in Hampshire, and his friend Doug Bower.

Still working on making archived material available and just come upon this. Thought surely of interest here.
