The county of Wiltshire in South West England is famed for Stonehenge and the white horses carved into its hills, but also happens to be the most active area for crop circles in the world. In 2009, nearly 70 crop circles appeared in its fields.

The newest crop circle discovered in the area is a complex 300 foot design carved into an expanse of rape seed near Wilton Windmill. It appeared Friday night, May 21st. The design isn’t just massive, but is also mathematical in nature. The intersected concentric pattern has been decoded by experts as a “tantalising approximation” of a mathematical formula called Euler’s Identity, which is considered by many to be the most beautiful and profound mathematical equation in the world.

One of the first people on the scene was Lucy Pringle, a founder of the Centre for Crop Circle Studies. She says: “What has happened in this particular crop circle is that there are 12 segments and within each segment there are 8 partly concentric rings. Each of these segments indicates a binary code based on 0 and 1. If you use an Ascii Table [computer calculation system], the pattern transposes itself into a tantalising approximation of Euler’s equation.”

Extensive research has been done on the crop circle phenomenon, though nobody knows conclusively how they’re made. Francine Blake of the Wiltshire Crop Circle Study Group, explains: “The difficulty is that we don’t know the answer. It’s something that needs to be treated with great respect, but is too often talked about flippantly in the media which, I think, closes the subject rather than opens it.”
