On saturday, July 5th 1997, project UNION was launched under the management of Klaus Listmann. Aim of the project was to create a formation in a field of crop under practicable realistic "hoaxing"-conditions. On that occasion the possibilities to create a previously planned pictogram with several people in the dark should be examined. More important, the circle should be the basis for further examinations, already carried out in supposed "genuine" formations or plannedto be carried out in these. Therefore project UNION was subdivided in several subprojects that were carried out on the field or are stll in realization:
