A new crop picture near Brandenburg, Germany on May 15, 2016 shows a “pinwheel spiral”, which seems intended to represent the “front wheel” of an “ET space shuttle” that is coming in to land 

A “pinwheel spiral” was drawn nicely in crops at Brandenburg, Germany on May 15, 2016. Within this small crop picture, we can see many delicate features, for example a long, thin “taper” of standing plants at every end of six different “crescent” motifs:  

We can also see a smooth, unbroken continuance of one “crescent” motif, as it crosses a set of (brown) field tramlines on the right.  

In order to draw this crop picture manually, using “rope and boards”, the hypothetical field artists would have had to “set a post in the ground” at six different locations internal to the crop picture, none of which show any trace of disturbance from human footsteps.  

They would also have had to draw each of six “crescent” motifs with two slightly-different radii of curvature (see Radius_of_curvature), so as to produce the outlines of two slightly-different “ellipses” rather than of “circles” (see Ellipse). So there are no indications at present that it was locally human-made.  

The overall shape of this “pinwheel spiral” could suggest many different meanings. Is someone trying to tell us about a “child’s toy”, a “spiral galaxy”, or maybe “lunar phase cycles”?  

Any of these interpretations might seem equally plausible, until we study the new crop picture in its proper landscape setting, using Google Earth at latitude 52.411o N, longitude 13.432o E. There we can see the landscape image of an “ET space shuttle”, which is just about to “descend”, perhaps in the year 2017. Two large “numbers” of “1” and “7” appear in the field below.  

When we zoom in to see where that new crop picture was drawn, we can see right away that this “pinwheel spiral” represents the “fast-turning front wheel” of some “ET space shuttle”:  

Very funny! Airplane or space-shuttle wheels certainly do turn very rapidly, when a craft lands.  

Two small landscape symbols for “pi” or π, just above the “cockpit” of that “space shuttle”, tell us that the “pinwheel” is “turning by 360o in a circle”, since 2 x pi radians equal 360 degrees. Six long white rectangles within the body of that “space shuttle”, just behind the “cockpit”, match six long, thin crescents in the “pinwheel” crop picture below. 

Why did those crop artists draw the “front wheel” of some “ET space shuttle” with a “pinwheel” shape? It was perhaps because that “pinwheel” resembles the actual wheels used on NASA Spirit Rover, a small probe which was sent from Earth in 2004 to land on Mars (see Spirit_(rover) ):  

In other words, their “pinwheel” shape implies the “landing of a foreign space vessel” on “some other planet”.  

This same “pinwheel” shape was drawn previously in crops near Milk Hill in England on August 5, 2012, on the same day when another NASA probe called “Curiosity” landed on Mars (see 20120805).  

When we study the landscape near that new Brandenburg crop picture on a much broader scale, we can see that the “ET space shuttle” is planning to “descend” soon, then “come into land”:  

“Come on down, the water’s fine!” (see John Candy at time 2:33 of

A “pinwheel spiral” was drawn slightly more than 3 tramlines away from an internal “field stripe”, perhaps to suggest the number π or 3.14, images of which appear twice in the Brandenburg landscape nearby 

On May 5, 2016, we saw that a “pentagon” had been drawn in crops along the 5th tramline of its chosen field, as part of the numerical coding associated with that particular crop picture (please see halfway down on hillbarn articles).  

Now on May 15, 2016, we find that a “pinwheel spiral” has been drawn in crops, slightly more than 3 tramlines away from an internal “brown field stripe”:  

Was it the intent of the crop artist, when choosing a precise field location for this crop picture, to match numerically a symbol for “π” or 3.14, which is located in the landscape just above?  

We can see that landscape symbol for “π” or 3.14 clearly in the next slide.

The “pinwheel spiral” crop picture has been “connected” to that landscape “π” symbol by a dashed white line. The “π” symbol itself has been marked with a “white rectangle”.   

A second (pink-red) landscape symbol for “π” is located just to the left of that first “π” symbol, which was marked with a “white rectangle”. Both symbols for “π” lie just above the “cockpit” of an “ET space shuttle”, which seems preparing to land (see other slides above). Somewhat comically, the pilot of that “ET space shuttle” seems to be calling out “Pi! Pi!” because he loves geometry so much!  

In summary, we have learned (or confirmed) here that important numerical coding information may be supplied, by the choice of which set of tramlines, a crop picture is drawn upon. On May 5, 2016, it was the number “5”. On May 16, 2016, it was the number “3.14”.

An alternative interpretation of the Brandenburg “pinwheel spiral”: some similarity to Tesla's “self-exciting homopolar motor” of 1891?  

We suggested above that “six thin crescents” within the Brandenburg “pinwheel spiral” might be related to a “spiral wheel design” for NASA Spirit Rover, which landed on Mars in 2004.  

Yet those “six crescents” also show a significant similarity to a series of “spiral grooves”, which were an essential part of Nicola Tesla’s “self-exciting homopolar motor” in 1891: 

Tesla thought that he could improve on Faraday's homopolar motor of 1830, by carving a series of "spiral grooves" within a round copper disc, which would then be placed over the North-South poles of a permanent magnet. When that copper disc began to spin, electric current would pass from the centre of the disc to its outer edges, along those “spiral grooves”.  

Such “spiral paths” for moving electrons would create in turn an extra North-South magnetic field, akin to that of a "wire coil electromagnet", and parallel to the field of a permanent magnet below. This “extra” magnetic field would add to the magnetic field of a permanent magnet below, if the copper disc was spinning in one direction (say clockwise), or would subtract from the magnetic field of a permanent magnet below, if the copper disc was spinning in another direction (say anti-clockwise).  

In the former case, a total magnetism of both fields combined (“permanent” and “extra”) would become greater, so more electric current would be produced! This result seems somewhat analogous to re-charging the battery in your car, from extra electric current made by the alternator, while the petrol engine is running.  

Tesla called his clever invention a self-exciting “unipolar dynamo". As to its self-exciting character, he wrote in 1891: “Let us now suppose the copper disc to be subdivided spirally. Since electric current will be forced to follow these spiral lines of subdivision, we see that it will tend to either energize or de-energize the magnetic field. This will depend upon the direction of spin.” (see notes-unipolar-dynamo or teslahom)  

We know today that Tesla’s self-exciting “unipolar dynamo” resembles the way in which electric currents and magnetic fields are generated within our Sun or other stars (see
