Crop formations puzzle TexcocoBy
Crop circles in Central Mexico.
Crop circles: We’ve all wondered about these mysterious formations that appear on rural plantations, with apparently no other explanation than beyond our world.
As is usual when such an event takes place, crowds of local onlookers gathered in Texcoco, a city located 15 miles north east from Mexico City. In a scene reminiscent of pretty much every sci-fi flick on this matter, authorities and scientists cordoned off the affected area, taking photographs and conducting all manners of analyses.
The event was registered on December 25th, 2014 when residents from the La Magdalena Panoaya county of Texcoco are quoted by the Huffington Post as reporting bright lights over the huge 17 acres field the night before. The next morning, the field showed irregular patterns, unlike the more commonly known crop circle formations.
Authorities had to restrict access to the area to prevent people from accessing and stepping on evidence.
This phenomenon remained unexplained during the following days, until Marcelino Cantelli, owner of the Moreda ranch – where these crop circles were found – told Zócalo Saltillo (a Coahuila-based daily) that these marks were not the product of alien ships. Rather, the weather – specifically the odd whirlwind – was to blame.
As the rumor of the alien markings spread, people started to recall films like M. Night Shyamalan’s Signs. Cantelli in turn, revealed that this is a common incident during the windy days of December. Damages are even more significant when barley is sowed, due to this plant’s short roots.
The owner of Moreda ranch added that as the news spread, bystanders started causing more damage to his crops as they proceeded to step over the unspoiled areas to tear out herbs, which they believed held magic powers.
Sad to say, there’s no official evidence of aliens visiting our planet. Yet…
