The Famous Jellyfish

This enormous jellyfish formation made headlines across Britain after its discovery in Oxfordshire May 29, 2009. It measured 600 feet — about three times the size of an average circle — and was one of the largest made that summer.
Crop artists have made plenty of birds and butterflies, but this was the first jellyfish circle ever made.
Its geometry was relatively straightforward, Alexander said, except that it was huge. "The tapering in its tentacles was noteworthy and particularly well executed," he said.
