Crop Circles have been a Mystery for many years and still remain a Mystery today. A Crop Circle is a Pattern which has been pressed into Corn and has also been found in Sand, Gravel, Earth, Ice and Snow. These patterns normally look extreamly Complicated to create and are thought by many people to be made by Extra-Terresstrials. The first Circle reported was in 1980 although there are referances of them appearing before 1678.
The Hot Spot for Crop Circles have been found in Southern England. Particually Wiltshire. There are also alot of reports in Winchester and Malborough. Most of them have been seen around Ancient sites such as Stonehenge and Avebury. Afew have even appeared in Scottland. Although afew of the Crop Circles appear in other Countris such as Germany, Netherlands, Norway, Italy, USA and Canada.
Alot of the Circles are actually Hoxes - With 15 % in England and 20 % Worldwide. But what about the other 65 %. Where did they come from? There are normally 50 - 60 Crop Circles each Summer in England alone, sometimes more. Two-Thirds are found here.
The Circles wern't taken Seriously by the Government untill 1981. The Military didn't get involved untill 1985. Military Helicopters are now frequentally seen over Crop Circles. Are theymonitoring them? How and why are they involved?
The best time to find a Crop Circle is between April and September. They are normally formed between Sunset and Sunrise. The smallest Circle is reported to be just 6 inces long and the longest in nearly 1 mile long.
Researchers of Crop Circles have found an Electromagnetic effect around the area's. There has also been a sound recording of a Strange Buzzing noise - Could tis be some type of message from Extra Terrestrials which we are yet to figure out. Some visitors to Crop Circles repot feeling unwell as soon as they entered it. Others report feeling unusually good. There are also reports of some people being healed of things.
To alot of Farmers, seeing a Crop Circle in their Field isn't a Surprise - They are more surprised not to see one. Afew Farmers even get annoyed to see a Circle and decide to destroy it as soon as possible. Some Farmers have even been known to cut down their crops even before Harvesting is due. However one Farmer saw the Benefitt of having a Crop Circle in his Feild. This was on the 7th Joly 1996 just accross the road from Stonhenge. With the Farmer unable to stop Visitors from entering his Feild, he decided to put a Sign up by the gate and Charge people to enter. He donated most of this money to Charity. It was the most Visited Crop Circle in history with 10,000 visitors in one Summer.
During the night of Crop Circles appearing, people have reported hearing Buzzing Electronic sounds, High pitched whistling and Load roaring. There are also reports of seeing aerial light going into the Field and Floating balls of light. There are afew idea's about how Crop Circles are Created. One idea is that they are Simply Man Made Hoxes. But alot of these patterns are created in Minutes. There is also no visable entry marks outside the Circle.
Another idea is that they are Created by Natural Forces including Birds and Hurricanes. However there are very few Hurricanes in Engalnd and i've never heard of one that could make such Exact Patterns :-)
The last theory is of Extra Terrorestrails. With the short amount of time some of the Circles are created in and reports of seeing strange things around the time, this seems like the most explainable answer.
What or who created these amazing shapes in th Corn? Are theey really just Hoxes? Are there Natural Forces at work? Or could they be messages from Extra Terrorestrials? What ever the answer may be, this is still such an interesting subject and maybee one day we'll get the answer to all the Questions.
