Crop circles hoaxed or possibly those still unclaimed for are another phenomenon with a wide and varied history. They are also quite artistic in my opinion and so worth a mention on the blog.

Crop Circles are geometric patterns, they can be fairly simple or quite intricate. They are best viewed from the air, they were first seen in fields as early as the 1970’s.

There was a significant amount noted that many were found in the ritual landscape of England. They were close to Stonehenge and Avebury, and also some others were notably reported in Indonesia and Australia.

In the 1980’s meteorologists speculated that freak winds could flatten crops, by some sort of ‘vortex action’. Another theory had been put forward that it was the Earth talking to us, a mysterious “earth force”.

Doug Bower and Dave Chorley claimed that they started making them in England, 1978. They went on to create over 200, since the 1980’s and there have also been crop circle competitions alongside some TV documentaries that explained how to make them.

 

The simplest way is a wooden board to flatten the stalks, get a farmers permission, and a rope to use as the anchor to keep the circle.

There are however still reports of strange things, such as radiation in the area, bizarre burn marks on the crop stalks and reports of Men In Black showing an interest.
