Comet 17P Holmes was shown in crop pictures two years ago

Crop pictures have always concerned themselves with various aspects of astronomy in our solar system. That makes perfect sense, if such messages are being sent to us across vast spans of time, from another human-like culture who lived on Earth in the distant past. What else would two such disparate cultures such as theirs and ours (who might not share a common written or spoken language) have in common, except for science, mathematics or astronomy?

For example, crop pictures from the year 1994 showed many schematic diagrams concerning the impact of Comet Shoemaker-Levy on planet Jupiter (see Kris Sherwood, Likewise, crop pictures from the year 1995 showed the unexpected outburst and break-up of Comet 73P Schwassman-Wachmann near Earth (see or In the latter case, news about break-up that comet appeared in English fields three months before professional astronomers on Earth learned of the same event.

Here I will report on how the recent outburst of Comet 17P Holmes was illustrated schematically in many different crop pictures from the summer of 2005, over two years ago. Yet because we did not know in advance that such a comet would explode, most of those pictures remained un-interpretable until now. Many of us could guess that "something astronomical" would explode, but we did not know what. It would be impossible for any ordinary human faker to construct so many pictures of the future, two years in advance, especially since no one knew if or when Comet Holmes would explode (its last time was back in 1892).
