The "crop circles", drawings made from wheat lying in the fields, raise
many questions about their origin. In Blaesheim, the mystery is lifted.
No extraterrestrials, nor even invisible minds. The enigma of the "crop
circle" ("circle of culture" in French, or crop circle) was solved. It
was actually a full - size exercise of mathematics, devised by a
professor at the gymnasium Jean - Sturm in Strasbourg, tells the Latest
News of Alsace . So there are about sixty college students who made the
work, explained the mayor of the town Jacques Baur joined by RTL .
The work, made of ears of corn lying in open fields and visible from the
sky, was made Monday, June 17 last. The college students were armed with
ropes and pickets, authorized to work by the mayor of the town, also
farmer, to invest the field. "There was a fifth class and a third class,
with 3-4 teachers," said François Baur. "The drawing will remain visible
until the harvest".
The Alsatian agroglyph had been spotted by an amateur aviator. "It was
planned, it's not what happened in Saint-Hippolyte", amuses the Alsatian
mayor. Its appearance was indeed following another crop circle,
discovered near Colmar . A drawing that remains an enigma
An increasingly common phenomenon
These phenomena are multiplying everywhere in France. Coming from the
United States, they appear on the eve of summer in the mature wheat
fields . A particularly remarkable one had been spotted a few weeks ago
in the Val-d'Oise , another was spotted recently in Menetou-Salon in the
The often unexplained origin of these perfectly proportioned drawings
provokes a multiplication of theories. Specialized sites make the
census, and each has his theory on the extraordinary origin of these
drawings. For some, it is alien work, for others, it is rather
terrestrial beings but invisible .
Neither hoax nor supernatural phenomenon: the beautiful "crop circle" as
inspired by a French garden, appeared in a wheat field of Blaesheim, is
the work of college students of the gym Jean-Sturm of Strasbourg, on an
idea of their math teacher.
Wishing to have them perform a life-size geometry exercise, the teacher
made contact with the managers of GAEC Gloeckelsberg - who are none
other than Jacques Baur, mayor of the town, and his brother
Jean-Philippe - who gladly put the one of their fields available to the
On Monday 17 June, two coaches filled with schoolboys landed in
Blaesheim. Using ropes and stakes, they made these geometric figures,
which caught the eye of an amateur aviator who flew over the area on

discovery occurred shortly after the appearance of a first circle of
culture in Saint Hippolyte early June ( read
At Blaesheim, light is made on these figures, which will be visible
until the harvest, around July 14th.
