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. (Related CE Article: Here’s What Happens When A UFO Is Tracked On Military Radar.)

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.
Great, it looks like aliens are into heavy metal music as well.
Another mysterious crop circle has appeared in the field near Stonehenge. This design is just one kilometer away from the infamous and mysterious site.
More and more crop circles have been appearing near Stonehenge over the last few decades.
This phenomenon is incredibly interesting, and has a lot of controversy surrounding it.
Many are quick to dismiss all crop circles as human made, even the most mind blowing intricate ones that seem almost impossible for us to have made.
Over the years there have been many different designs with very specific purposes. Most of these crop circles have detailed sacred geometry within them, some seem to be codes for us to decipher.
Crop circles seem to be a direct way for other beings to communicate messages with us.
In 1974 we sent out a message into space, and received one back embedded into these fields in 2001:
This is still something that has been dismissed by NASA, even though it is a Direct response to what we sent out.
Other crop circles seem to be showing their technology, almost like blueprints. So what do you think this new crop circle is supposed to be?
Scientific Studies Confirm: “Crop Circles Are Made by Balls of Light”
Crop circles have been appearing around the globe for a very long time, and while some might represent the sloppy and obvious work of a few pranksters, others are so elaborate, so clever, so intricate, and so meaningful that their creation would require the use of highly advanced technology. It’s truly difficult to imagine how some of these designs could be done in the dead of night, with no footprints left behind, in just a few hours of time.
“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 (source)
The circles that are most likely to be genuine have actually been being studied by reputable scientists from all over the world for decades. For example, Richard Taylor, a University of Oregon physicist, published a paper on them in the 2011 issue of Physics World, stating:
Crop circle arts are not going to give up their secrets easily. This summer, unknown artists will venture into the countryside close to your homes and carry out their craft, safe in the knowledge that they are continuing the legacy of the most science-oriented art movement in history. (source)
Yes, you read that correctly: “the most science-oriented art movement in history.” What would cause a physicist to conclude that these works do not have an extraterrestrial explanation? or to even consider the issue seriously? This photo might offer some clues:
Above is a picture of an 800 foot crop circle that appeared in Wiltshire, England back in 2001. It caused a lot of commotion, and as you can see, it was very beautiful and extremely complex. The design consisted of 409 circles that form what’s known as a triskelion, a symbol that dates back thousands of years. There is some great footage of it in the documentary Crop Cricles: Quest for Truth by Academy Award-winning director William Gazecki. You can view that here.
“It was so large that it took us half an hour to find the center.” (quote taken from video link below)
There are some more great images of it in this YouTube video. You can also see footage of it taken by a helicopter flying above from the documentary Thrive in this video (at the 26.16 minute mark). This circle marks just one of thousands of verified formations that continue to baffle scientists, researchers, and onlookers alike.
Richard Taylor, the aforementioned scientist who studied these circles, again expressed his belief that this was one of the greatest art revolutions in history when he published his scientific analysis of crop circles in the journal Nature in 2010.
After studying the affected grass in the lab, he concluded that the circle makers must be using GPS devices, lasers, and microwaves to create these designs because the nodes of some of the stalks had been blasted out on one side. This same effect has been replicated by highly localized microwave heating, which is what causes the stocks to flop over to one side.
