There are literally hundreds of of documented examples online that you can look at.
Despite the fact that Physics World published Taylor’s article, and an actual study of the phenomenon was published by Taylor in the year prior in the science journal Nature, it still seemed to be a ‘de-bunking mechanism.
For example, Matin Durrani, Editor of Physics World, said that it “may seem odd for a physicist such as Taylor to be studying crop circles, but then he is merely trying to act like any good scientist – examining the evidence for the design and construction of crop circles without getting carried away by the side-show of UFOs, hoaxes and aliens.”
This instantly reminded me of a famous quote give by a former head of the CIA, Roscoe Hillenoetter in 196 when he said,
Behind the scenes, high ranking air force officers are soberly concerned about the UFOs. But through official secrecy and ridicule, many citizens are led to believe that the unknown flying objects are nonsense. (source)
Today, UFO’s are far from a ‘side show,” and Matin Durrani clearly had, or has no idea. It’s even well known today within the mainstream that there is something going o. These objects are constantly tracked on radar, and visually confirmed at the same time. Even Hillary Clinton’s campaign manager, John Podesta has gone on the record saying that“the time to pull the curtain back on this subject is long overdue. We have statements from the most credible sources, those in a position to know – about a fascinating phenomenon, the nature of which is yet to be determined.” (You can read more about Podesta and UFOs here.)
A great paper published Journal of Scientific Exploration. Titled “Estimates of Optical Power Output in Six Cases Of Unexplained Aeriel Objects With Defined Luminosity Characteristics,” (source)(source) it offers a comprehensive look at the oddities military pilots encounter when they are ordered to intercept one of these UFOs.

Why Crop Circles Could Be Bigger Than What The Physicist Describes
Although a relationship between crop circles and unidentified flying objects (UFOs) has been postulated, there have as of yet been no proven sightings (or credible witnesses) of actual UFOs in connection to the formation of these patterns.
Sometimes, military helicopters have been captured examining the circles as well, there are a couple videos floating around on the the internet that allude to this, you can check some of them out here.
That being said, most of these formations are a little sloppy and, for the most part, the result of clever hoaxes, like this recent one in California. But some are so intricate, meaningful, and precisely designed that their execution would require an enormous amount of time, effort and technology – not the the work of a single night. Again, these complex patterns have appeared thousands of times throughout the world, though they are more predominant in the UK.
The crop circle at Milk Hill (see cover photo) is a perfect example of this. Again, keep in mind however, that there have been many impressive and very believable circles created by hoaxers, and as many have suggested, such circle makers could indeed create beautiful works of art overnight.
The problem is, nobody has ever come forward and nobody has been caught in the act.
“Some of these formations are so immense and complex as to defy reason. And after all these decades, none of the perpetrators have been caught in the act of making any of the truly extraordinary formations.” – Richard Dolan, historian, academic, author, and one of the world’s leading UFO researchers (1)
The truth is, many of the complex formations are completely unexplained, and riddled with oddities that lend even more mystery to the already confusing equation.
One of these oddities is the fact that some formations, for example, have crops that were completely pushed down without ever having been broken. In some cases they’ve been bent just inches above the ground.
Traditional hoaxers have used wooden planks in the past, but in some cases, it’s clear that this method could not be behind the resulting circles.
