This flour-like formation appeared on the 25th of May, below Hackpen hill in the same field as the beautiful 1999 Vortex. This is meticulously executed but academic design is notable really only for its great size. In fact I read on the Forum that it is exactly the same size as the walk-line skeleton of the famous 2001 Milk Hill Galaxy.
It's odd that the farmer planted a light colour barley on one edge of the field (on the left edge of the circle). I wonder if it is a different species or simply seeded at a different time. ilyes speculates that it might be a GM test.
