Just plotting a route on google maps and saw the following unusual view:

Route (http://tiny.cc/g1bddw)

Follow the route eastwards towards Uffington and zoom in when it goes over the B4000 - have a look at the 2nd field on the left when in satelite view!!!

That's very weird. Crop circle stuff.

you can spot the walking path of whoever did it leading up to the left hand side of the "thing"

Very good spot that!! Doesn't look that well made though..

At least we know who did it.. If you zoom in you can see the words (C) 2010 Google in the crop.

Two of the circles in the tail appear to be in the wrong order

Clearly the work of a local Pastafarian flattening crops to the greater glory of The Flying Spaghetti Monster.

Either that or the work of a conceptual artist driven nuts by Swindon's roundabouts....

Clearly the proof that we are in fact suffering from Man Made Global Warming! That photograph was taken in December! Definitive proof, at last!

Use Google maps a lot but following your link My IE shows "This webpage wants to run the following addon: GEPlugin from Google (unverified publisher)"

I regularly find Google pages don't work properly in IE, the Android dashboard won't load without clicking refresh and Android app upload often won't work at all. Think it's a sort of principle thing Google and MS have, to ignore the other.

Oh satelite view. I went right into street maps and was peering into the puddles.
