Crop: Grasses

Description:  One large 7m-diameter circle with two smaller 1m diam. satellite circles spaced 12-m distance from larger circle. The two smaller circles placed like "ears" on one side of the larger circle. All circles were swirled counter-clockwise.
Peter van den Broeke reports that on the afternoon of March 12th his son, Robbert (who over the past 14 years has witnessed many crop circles forming) had a very strong feeling that "something" was about to occur. In the past when Robbert has experienced this sensation (which usually intensifies over several days until it is quite acute) a new crop formation has occurred somewhere near Hoeven, after which the sensation disappears. This time he told his parents that the feeling was exceptionally strong and he therefore went out on his bike to see if he could find a new circle.
Robbert went to several locations where, in the past, crop circles have appeared, but saw nothing in the fields. Returning home in the late afternoon the sensation continued, in spite of the fact that he had found no new formation. At about 9:30 pm on the night of March 12th, while sitting on the living room couch wide awake, Robbert suddenly experienced a "vision," in which he clearly saw a new crop circle being formed.
He reports seeing a very large UFO hovering over a field about 4-500m away from his "special field," a site on the outskirts of Hoeven, where many anomalous events have taken place in the past (for another recent event in this same area, see The UFO was shooting multiple light-balls down toward the field and it was the light-balls which created the crop circle. Curiously, Robbert called these light-balls "satelites," a term he has not used before.
Robbert then told his parents about his "vision" and drew a diagram of what the new crop circle would look like. As it was now getting late (10pm or so) and quite dark, they waited until the next morning when Robbert's father found the new formation.

Robbert & I have been in these fields during many summers and there are many high-tension power lines in the area. In 2001 we carried out an electromagnetometer-geomagnetometer survey (for Dr. William Roll) in these fields and observed sharp spikes in our readings whenwe were directly beneath the power lines-but these readings dropped to "normal" only 4-5m away. We did not find any EM abnormalities in the fields around the lines, even in the fields where crop circles existed that year, or in fields where they had previously occurred.
