It hase a very prosaic explanation: Those are real "crop circles"!
What they are is crops planted in circular patterns with a long irrigation armature attached to a pole in the center. The armature pivots on the center pole has a carraige with wheels on the outer point, and propels itself in a circle, watering the crop underneath.
They are all over the place in the western states.
Frankly, I think the "deactivated" and still powered-up Minuteman missle silos make a better story. SLEUTHS?
EDITOR: the only element that might require continued watch here would be the possibility that these farming methods might mask something else. Rumors exist that several underground facilities are covered over by agriculture. Had a student once that said he was a medic flown into China Lake to retrieve a heart-attack patient. Zooming in on the chopper he saw a farm, tractors, farmers with M-16s. Then the ground opened up like the Iris lens on a camera. He went down the the seventh level to retieve his patient.
