I am sending only a short contribution to the crop circle of 29 June 2012 Stanton St. Bernard 2, nr Alton Barnes, Wiltshire. I think this formation is again related to the XXX Olympic Games in London. Milk Hill on June 25, 2012 apparently shows the scorpion.

Second interpretationMore astronomical symbolism of Venus at Stanton St. Bernard on June 29, 2012The new crop picture at Stanton St. Bernard on June 29, 2012 shows an astronomical symbolism for planet Venus, which closely resembles those shown at Milk Hill, England or Fabbrico, Italy on June 25, 2012. Its overall symbolism is that of planet Venus among five bright stars of the constellation Taurus on July 5, 2012:
When we look more closely, we can see certain asymmetries in the crop picture which resemble those seen in the star pattern:
For example, star 1 is lower than star 5, while star 2 lower than star 4, in both the crop picture and the star pattern. Star 2 is drawn a bit wider than normal in the crop picture, because it is a double star in the sky. Star 4 is drawn slightly tilted to the right in the crop picture, because it is tilted slightly to the right in the sky. Some people have suggested that these asymmetries might suggest errors in the crop-circle making process, but such a view would be superficial.
Five “teardrop” shapes are perhaps meant to represent a reflection of those five stars at sunrise into some ocean or lake. Finally, the crop picture suggests a visual metaphor to Westminster Cathedral in London. It compares the cross-like shape of bright Venus at dawn to a Christian cross:
Those were some of the last words of the Christian New Testament from the Revelation to Saint John: “I am the root and offspring of King David, and the bright morning star” (Venus). Appendix 1. A remarkable symmetry transformation from sky to ground was shown at Stanton St. Bernard on June 29, 2012 In order to match the crop picture which was drawn at Stanton St. Bernard on June 29, 2012, we found it necessary to flip the true sky image vertically (south to north) along crop tramlines. Then all five stars in Taurus (1, 2, 3, 4, 5) match the observed crop picture and all of its asymmetries with good precision:
This corresponds essentially to flipping such a stellar image out of the sky and down onto the ground. The best viewpoint on Earth would be July 5, 2012 at sunrise near latitude 20o South. Five rectangular “boxes” in the Stanton crop picture symbolize “relative altitude in the sky” for each of those five stars. Note for example that “box 5” is higher than “box 1”, because star 5 is higher in the sky than star 1. Likewise “box 4” is higher than “box 2”, because star 4 is higher in the sky than star 2. Almost the same box-altitude symbolism was drawn in crops at Milk Hill in June of 2009, accompanied then by the image of a “sextant” which is used to measure “altitude”.Appendix 2. Sky altitude boxes were also drawn near Milk Hill in crops three years ago The new crop picture at Stanton St. Bernard on June 29, 2012 bears a close stylistic resemblance to Milk Hill of June 2009, which came down in three separate phases. Both of those crop pictures show small “boxes” or rectangles of variable height, in order to represent astronomical “altitude” in Earth’s sky, which is essentially an angular height above the local horizon:
A more complete re-appraisal of the Milk Hill 2009 crop picture may be presented elsewhere.Red Collie (Dr. Horace R. Drew)
