Monday December 30, just as a blogged about the fascinating snow formations (see below), what should appear in California, but a mysterious crop circle carved into a barley field just east of Salinas. The Monterey Herald reported the creation spanned nearly an acre of the field. The report also mentioned the owners of the farm hired security guards to monitor the property, but reporters were escorted to see the masterpiece up-close. Some people reported seeing unexplained overhead lights before the formation was discovered. No one took credit for creating the formation. Whether created by human or extraterrestrial, weather conditions for the circle-carving were nearly ideal, with clear skies and cool temperatures, according to weather.com senior meteorologist Jon Erdman. Sadly the formation was destroyed the next day before crop circle researchers could investigate.
Though most crop circles are manmade, some researchers still maintain humans could not have created the more intricate designs. I believe the consciousness hologram of our reality created them as inserts or planted the seed for their creation in the minds of the circle makers.
The California formation was later proven to be a hoax as suspected.
Crop Circle Was a Publicity Stunt: Why 'Experts' Were Fooled Live Science - January 7, 2014
A mysterious 310-foot-diameter crop circle that appeared in a farmer's barley field in Chualar, Calif., as 2013 ended puzzled the public for more than a week. Echoing the sentiments of many, the field's owner told CNN, "To be that intricate in design, it kind of baffles me as to how that was done."Videos and photos of it went viral, and though some dismissed the crop circle as a hoax, others weren't so sure. Some crop-circle experts wrote in-depth analyses that claimed to cleverly decode hidden meanings in the pattern, including that a bright comet would appear in the sky later this year.

Photos: Snowshoes and Math Create Frozen Art Discovery - December 30, 2013
To most people, apres-ski means a warm chalet, hot drink, spa or dinner. To Simon Beck of Great Britain, it means creating intricate pictures in the snow. And not just snow angels: Beck's snow art involves mathematical patterns and often stretches the length of several soccer fields. "There's a frozen lake outside where I stay, and one day after skiing I thought, wouldn't it be fun to make a pattern?" he said. "I didn't have any snow shoes, just walking boots, but the snow wasn't too deep and it worked perfectly well." He's been doing it ever since, creating snow art so unique that he says Disney has asked him to create an image for its winter movie, "Frozen."
