Reported Crop Circles for the State of Ohio -

Austinberg / Ashtabula, Ashtabula County (August 30, 1992)

Upon returning home from a several-day trip, farmer Donald Wheeler (pictured above) discovers a 25' by 8' flattened rectangular area in his corn field located along Route 45. The cornstalks were flattened all in one direction: perpindicular to the planted corn rows. None of the stalks were broken, just bent over a few inches off the ground, with none of the corn ears touched. Wheeler searched for signs of entry, but found no evidence of either human nor animal tracks anywhere around.

Samples were sent to biophysicist W.C. Levengood who found abnormal seed and ear development in the formation samples:

Crop type: corn/maize.
