August 25, 2006 (GENESEO, Ill.) – When farmer Jim Stahl approached the Henry County Sheriff’s Department to report mysterious damage to his soybeans, officers decided to have a little fun. The department issued a news release describing the strange crop circles. The release then says, in part, “So, if anyone happens to see a U-F-O or any other suspicious vehicle with soybeans attached, please call the sheriff’s office.” But for some researchers, the crop circles in Stahl’s beans are no laughing matter. BLT Research, a nonprofit group based in Massachusetts, sent a member out to gather samples from his field. BLT has been investigating crop circles for 15 years. President Nancy Talbott says the group believes low-energy plasma from outer space causes the crop formations.
Interesting theory. See crop circles here.
