Crop circle in Germany – level 3

04-08-2014 07:00

This mysterious crop circle has been spotted in a wheat field in upper Bavaria and has been attracting thousands of visitors.

With a very ornate design printed into the crops, the circle seems to be formed of three rings and has a diameter of 75 metres.

After being discovered by hot air balloonists flying over the wheat field, word of the mysterious creation spread quickly through internet forums.

Thousands of people have now been flocking to the field to take a look for themselves.

“Nothing of this earth. I don’t mean a UFO or such thing. It’s just forces we have not explored yet, or maybe we have and nothing has been done about it or maybe it hasn’t been in the media. That’s what I believe.”

The farmer who owns the field praised visitors who took off their shoes before entering, and said that a collection box had been put down in order to reimburse him for any damage done.

Difficult words: mysterious (we don’t know a lot about it), spot (to see something from far away), ornate (detailed), balloonist (person who flies a balloon), flock (to come somewhere in large numbers), praise (be glad), reimburse (repay).
