Colin Andrews, who recently appeared on the Paratopia radio show, is one of the veterans of crop circle researchers. He began a crop circle
surveillance mission known as Operation White Crow, which was done in a place known as the "Devil's Punchbowl" at Cheesefoot Head, near Winchester
in Hampshire in 1989. What happened here was an extraordinary event that really makes you question the whole crop circle scenario even more.

please see the website for the full account.
"We had a caravan of vehicles, work stations, and cameras. One evening, some of us who were directly participating in the surveillance operation
decided to get away from the main base of operations and walk 100 yards or so away from the bustle.
We all walked off into a single crop circle, the larger of a formation of two circles that had appeared in the field next to the one we were
monitoring. There were seven or eight of us, including psychic Rita Gould, and we all sat down and tried to relax. We did not meditate, or attempt to
make contact with the intelligence of the circles - this was not a seance - but we were all in a relaxed state of mind.
1. Sound Phenomena
Suddenly, we all heard a sound from the east. As we listened, it grew louder and we could sense it getting closer. It was definitely directional, in
that we could all tell precisely where it was coming from, and we could follow it as it moved. The sound then rotated around us, floating around the
circle three or four times, like an auditory cloud that passed above us in a circle...
2. Mysterious Physical Forces
And then it got really weird.
As Pat stood there at the edge of the circle, he called out: "Colin, come to me," he said. And then, he cupped his left hand and began to "scoop"
in the air at the top of the plants closest to the ground and push this energy in my direction.
I walked towards him, and when I reached him, he continued his odd cupping and scooping motion across the top of the plants, pushing the air towards
me, specifically towards my solar plexus - he aimed it straight at the pit of my stomach. I stood there and went along with this, not knowing how to
respond, or what to say...
Pat then started to walk towards us. When he reached a point about 25 to 30 feet away from us, he stopped in his tracks, and his head went back as
though he were about to fall backwards. It was a most extraordinary sight and I truly did not understand what was going on. As I stared at this
incredible sight, he then beckoned to me. Incredibly, his body then leaned back on a 10 to 15 degree angle. He hung there suspended, as though he
were leaning against a cushion, or perhaps something more solid.
At this point, Pat was absolutely terrified. I could see fear in his eyes and he started shouting to me. "Colin! Come and hold me up!" I rushed to
him and grabbed both his hands and tried to pull him to an upright position. I felt great pressure pulling against me, and it was as though Pat was
stuck to glue. I continued to tug at him, and then suddenly he was free. It felt as though a bond had snapped and his body was released from the force
that had been holding him. At the precise moment that Pat was pulled free, the crop circle sound stopped...
The following morning, as we were working in the base camp of the operation, a police sergent drove up. "Are you aware," the sergeant asked us,
pointing in the direction of the sound from the night before, "that there's a circle with a ring on the top of the hill over there?"
We replied that we were not aware of any new formations and the sergeant offered to drive us there in the police car. We gratefully accepted and we
sped off towards the hill he had pointed out. When we arrived, we were flabbergasted. In the exact direction the sound seemed to travel to when it
left us was a fresh crop ring. The plants were still popping up, and still moving, as though a powerful hand had pressed them down, and they were just
now springing back up..."
"I believed then, as I believe now, that the previous night we had inadvertently encroached upon the creation of a crop circle. We had all
unwittingly placed ourselves in the middle of a paranormal event..."
