WISCONSIN CROP CIRCLE
Port Washington, Wisconsin
Jackie reports that on July 10, 1998, strange markings
were found in a wheat field just beyond a farm house possibly with an attached garden shed.
Three large circles approximately 90 feet across and connected
by a slightly curved line were discovered. There was no sign of an
entrance or exit to the field.
Address: Milwaukee WI 53211.

Location of the Crop Circle
It's in a private field about 2 miles NW of Port Washington on Hwy KW. It is not visible from the road. The field has been cut, but the image of the circle is still visible as of 7/30/98.
is a large microwave/cellular phone/radar tower, also in a private
field, in the immediate area and visible from the circle.

Port Washington, WI Crop Circle Report
After deciding to take a look at the Port Washington, WI crop circle I
drove down to the area. I already learned that the wheat field had been
cut by July 19th and BLT Research thought good control samples would
not be possible. I was still curious though partly because I actually
drove right past that same field about 2 months earlier. I arrived at
the field on July 26th after staying with nearby relatives the night before.
Location of the Crop Circle:
When I approached the field I could not see the crop circle since the
wheat was cut and rows of straw blocked any view of what was left of
the formation. I noticed two people near the south end of the field
taking measurements. It turned out to be Chad Lewis and Jason from
Wisconsin MUFON who had just arrived that morning. They described the
formation as being moderately complex made of 6 circles, a partial ring
and 2 connecting bars.
3 medium sized circles about 40 to 75 feet across were in a line connected
by 2 bars each about 20 feet long by 6 feet wide aligned in an east to west
orientation. The largest circle was in the center with the smaller 2 on
each side. The west end circle was slightly larger than the circle at the
east end of this barbell configuration. About 70 feet south of the center
circle of the barbell was another larger circle about 100 feet across.
Connecting at each side of this larger circle was a curved pathway which
ran down to connect with the center circle to the north. This pathway was
about 5 feet wide and was much like a ring connecting the 2 parts of the
formation. Chad and Jason also found 2 small circles about 5 feet across
just inside the diameter of the ring with one on each side of the largest
circle. They were each about 12 feet from where the ring and large circle
intersected and roughly centered in the space between them like they were
in corners. The wheat stalks were rotated counterclockwise in all 6 circles
and the ring and it was bent outward away from the center circle in the 2
bars. The wheat was bent like it was just pushed over by a mechanical
process with no obvious sign of radiation or heating.
Crop Circle diagram:
Chad Lewis pointed out a large crack in the east end circle of the barbell.
The crack was about 12 to 15 inches long, 1-1/2 to 2 inches wide and perhaps
6 to 8 inches deep. It stood out as being unusually large as compared to
other smaller cracks in the dry soil near that area. Chad and Jason had
already taken detailed measurements by the time I had arrived and were just
finishing up. They helped me with a few compass measurements and stayed
for a few pictures. They then left early in the afternoon to start work on
another case. They planned to write a report of their findings and
measurements of the formation.
stayed for a while to look for anything unusual and take some pictures.
Of particular interest was an overlapping of wheat stalks at the
intersection of the west end circle and its connecting bar. They
appeared to be woven together by a 4 step overlap process. The bar
stalks were laid first followed by circle stalks. Then more bar stalks
were laid over them and bent to follow the circle rotation. More wheat
from the circle was then laid over these. It was like these 2 parts
could have been formed simultaneously with the stalks intermingling as
they were laid down at right angles.
I measured the overall length as 233 feet and width at 210 feet. The
largest circle was situated only 31 feet from a gravel road along the south
end of the wheat field. It was nearly centered in the field from east to
west being 124 paces from the edge along the road to the east and 118
paces to the corn field to the west. Under one of the rows of straw was
another path of bent stalks about 1 foot wide. It formed a straight line
connecting the largest circle at the south to the center barbell circle.
I assumed it to be a from a walking trail.
I drew some preliminary diagrams since then and the report from Chad Lewis
should give a good documentation of more exact dimensions. Whether this
formation was man-made or formed by unexplained methods is not yet known.
