Crop circles have been found throughout the country. They are one of the most intriguing things I have researched. The first recent evidence of a crop circle was in 1966 in Tully, England. The circles ranged from a few inches to a few feet in diameter. There is also evidence of a crop circle in Hertfordshire, England in 1678.
There have been many theories as to why these peculiar circular shapes have appeared in people’s crops. These theories include UFOs, energy fields, and plasma vortexes (since 1). There is no evidence as to how these patterns are formed. There is evidence that there is an electric field around some of these circles. One theory is that electrified air forms mini-tornadoes and causes the circles.
This is called the Plasma Vortex Theory” (Sine 1). Another theory that is very prominent is that all of these circles are hoaxes and were made by people to receive publicity. Hoaxes are blamed for many of the circles, especially the ones that are more complex. There have been people who admitted to making some of these circles. Two people who have admitted to this are Doug Bower and David Chorley (Sine 1). They admitted to faking around two hundred fifty circle formations.
Many of the circles that were admitted hoaxes were under suspicion because of their ragged look. Also, some of the more complex and intricate ones are thought to be fakes. The number of these circles is proof in itself, and the fact that they are spread throughout the world is also evidence that it is not all a hoax. The most interesting theory is that UFOs made the circles (sine2). There have been sightings of UFOs, and circles have been found at the site the next morning.
There have also been sightings of balls of light over the fields at night that have left circles on the ground. When some of these circles have appeared, a screaming” noise was heard in the night along with strange nocturnal lights. In the 1970s, circles appeared on the farm of a man named Billy Meier. This person also claimed to have been abducted by aliens in the past. The grass was flat but not broken, just bent over. Even stranger, afterwards, the grass continued to grow in a swirled pattern.
There is also a video of a military helicopter flying and hovering over a ball of light above a newly formed crop circle. The government claims the helicopter was on maneuvers. These balls of light were also seen following fighter planes into battle during World War II. The British Government has an extreme interest in these balls of light (Sine 2).
