Probably about a week or so before June 21, 1994, when my friend Larry called me to report the formation, the Sunset Highway crop formation appeared in metropolitan Portland adjacent to the very busy U.S. 26 (Sunset) highway. This highway connects downtown Portland with Seaside, Oregon, on the Oregon Coast.
The formation was very close to the Sunset Highway and could in fact be seen from the highway as you went east into Portland approaching the 185th exit. I guessed the position was about 1500 feet east of 185th and 500 feet south of Sunset. It was in a wheat field. The area was adjacent to the Tanasborne Cinema. The access streets were built up as if for a development which was planned but hadn’t happened yet. The lot that the formation appeared in was probably next in line for development.

The formation looked somewhat like a "celtic cross" in design with an inner circle surrounded by an outer ring outside of which were four smaller circles spaced at 12, 3, 6, and 9 o'clock. The formation was placed in still green wheat.
My friend Larry called me on the morning of June 21, 1994, to report the formation. A friend at work had alerted him. I called some of my UFO investigator friends and a local crop circle investigator. I also called the Hillsboro Oregonian newspaper desk to make sure that there would be an article about the formation.
