Perhaps it was caused by a close encounter of the 3-D kind.

This sophisticated crop circle uses an optical illusion to give the impression of a three dimensional cube.

The creators of the 200ft wide design in a field of wheat at Clay Hill near Warminster, Wiltshire remain a mystery.

The area is known as the UFO capital of Britain after repeated sightings of unearthly objects and numerous crop circle appearances over the last few decades.

However, those hoping that the mysterious circle is a message from another world or a sign of a spacecraft landing are likely to disappointed.

Over a decade ago pranksters Doug Bower and Dave Chorley admitted that they had created 200 crop circles mostly around Warminster.

Mr Bower explained that after sketching them out in his studio workshop they would take a plank and rope to a cornfield where they would walk around with the rope in ever-increasing circles and make a passageway leading to another identical circle.

Not that this very down to earth explanation halted wild conjecture about their origins.

The crop circle phenomenon started in Westbury, just three miles north of Warminster in August 1980 and last month 200 crop circles have appeared in one elaborate formation in the nearby village of Mere.
