LAWTON, Mich., Aug. 24 (UPI) -- While some have suggested it's a prank, Michigan farmer John Polomcak wants to know why a patch of corn has turned into a crop circle.

Polomcak of Lawton, Mich., says he has been farming his whole life and he's never seen corn lay down flat, all in an easterly direction, reported the Kalamazoo Gazette Tuesday.

"No way I could see that any one could drive up and back and up and back without bending ... stalks both ways," he said.

Detroit high school biology teacher Charles Lietzau a member of the International Independent Crop Circles Researchers' Association, said he and two other association members will investigate the crop circle.

The researchers will examine the corn for evidence of ruptured stalks, swollen nodes, patterns of discoloration and evidence of magnetic and radioactive fields.
