Reported Crop Circles for the State of Washington -

Wilbur, Lincoln County (July 23, 2009)

Thanks to the keen eye of who notified the ICCRA of this report, the first geometric crop circle formation in the USA this year (2009) has been reported near the small town of Wilbur, Lincoln County, Washington.

The crop circle formation was first spotted on Thursday, July 23, 2009 by the farmer, Craig Haden as he was riding past the field on his motorcycle.  The formation is in wheat, and consists of five rings laid out in a straight line and one offset circle (the straight path to the edge of the field was apparently made by the farmer so that visitors wouldn't destroy more of the field):

Some people may recall that this area had a reported crop circle formation about two years ago on June 29, 2007:

The 2007 formation, also in wheat, also had a similar "ring" component to it, as the central element of the formation was a ring of similar proportions (flattened ring area as compared to the standing circular center) to the larger rings of this year's formation.

In the NBC video report, the reporter mentions that the farmer tried to keep quiet about the circles, but as more locals spotted them, the local paper ran a news story, and now the "cat's out of the bag".

We will try to continue to follow up on this formation, and keep everyone updated...
