02- Loosdrechtse Plassen, Utrecht, 01-06-2002

We received a very remarkeble eyewitness report of two circles in water which were seen by one of the co-workers of the PTAH Foundation.

Report from Martin van Wieringen

After a short trip with my boat on the Loosdrechtse Plassen at 01-06-2002 around 3.30 pm, I saw a sort of a mist on the water surface which appeared suddenly. The result was a fast rotating cylinder of water with a diameter of approx. 20 meters on the water surface. This cylinder of water was 'sucked up' from the surface with a height of approx. 2 or 3 meters. The pattern of the cylinder looks similar as a vortex pattern.

First I thought it was a tornado, but that wasn't what causes this cylinder of water. This because the cylinder was flat at the top. The cause of this cylinder of water sprayed the water on top of the cylinder. The result looks the same as a combination of a tornado and the properties which are characterized of how crop circles are formed.

After approx. 15 seconds the cylinder collapsed, but after a short break another rotating force was following a long 'path' of approx. 50 meters. After this path dissapeared, a new cylinder of water rises from the surface. This cylinder had a diameter of approx. 8 meters.

More details and drawings will follow as soons as possilbe.
