Well, we have all seen crop circles in fields of wheat or other crop..

But what about in the snow?

Here is a real test for the debunkers... work this one out..

I'll post one of the pics and leave a link... but i am just a tad baffled as to how this was done..

Snow circles

When I saw this I just got a weird feeling(when I saw the map of it). I don't know why it is just somehow familiar to me. I think it has something to do with our universe.

Aw come on, you only have to take one look to see that the circles were made by a person dragging something or other behind them, or perhaps even their feet.

You cant see the whole field so you cant tell if there are footprints leading up to the first circle but it would be very simple to make on circle then jump to the side to start the next and create a whole picture without any footprints being visible.


Nothing unexplainable about this whatsoever.

Easily done.

wow that is freaky


hmmm...now how would a person do this

This to me is quite interesting actually... surely there would be some form of foot prints if it was human made? no?

Snow circles




This ones a puzzle to debunk! Where are the foot prints?

Maybe they carefully placed there steps so they could make the circles without showing any? The distance from one circle to another isn't to great, and the width of the lines are about the width of an average human foot.

Well...the only thing I can think of...is they walked inside the rings as they carved them out...and maybe had flat pieces of wood tied to their feet to avoid leaving footprints...

I'm not sure what to think of this one...but I certainly hope to see more snow circles...I'll do a little searching to see if there are any others...

EDIT: Hmmm...they seem to be quite rare...from what I can see this is pretty much the first notable snow circle ever to appear...here's another thread discussing some supposed snow circles... www.abovetopsecret.com...

The pictures and the website look suspect simply because it looks very amature.

The snow fall is lite, so a possible theory is they laid massive amounts of salt, so when it started snowing it melted into the shapes we are looking at.

Awesome. Where is the missing snow

With a shovel.

Once the circle is complete, just bash the snow into the ground within the perimeter of the groove you just made.


None of those circles are perfect circles, whereas iv`e never seen one crop circle picture that has`nt been perfect in every mathematical detail. These circles are childlike to say the least.

Yes, I too thought of the method of stepping out of one circle to make another circle by removing the snow.

But that leaves you with another problem...how to get rid of the snow that you have shoveled up to form the circle?

You could put a bag on your back and fill the bag as you go, but that would take many trips in and out of the area and would take a long time, which could lead to many mistakes.

What bothers me is the way the circles are not perfect.. but mostly oval. That kinda throws a spanner in the works for me but it still leaves us with several questions.

The circles are close enough to step to the next without leaving prints. Interesting at the same time

Even if they were perfect ovals it would be something, but they are simply badly drawn circles.



Jump in the field with a shovel / begin shovelling while batting down the snow as you go to pack it down / jump out the badly drawn circle / repeat till you are satisfied.

Does`nt take much figuring out.

THAT....is a brilliant idea man...I wonder if it would really work like we see in those pictures...I can see people trying this out now...and creating really wacky snow circles...it'd probably cost a lot for all the salt though!

OK, seems some of you are just looking at the photo in the first post..

Guess I'll have top post a photo of the actual track of a circle..

You'll see how deep the snow is and you'll notice it has not been compacted down.


Please try to read the report in the site linked and check out the other pics before you waste time making a short comment that does not really help.
Being aware of the whole story helps to formulate a better idea of what's gone on ....and might even help you work out how it was achieved.

Yes it is a nice idea...but as you can see from the picture it is clearly not the case.. the snow still exists in the places that salt would have had to have been placed..

Nice idea though..

The salt trick does indeed work. A friend of mine up North likes to make pictures in the snow using salt.

Still though footprints are visible in the path he walked and seeing how the picture is taken (or cropped) its possible that footprints lead up to the area just out of frame.

Cheers

EDIT:

Took your advice Op and checked out the site. Great photos and a sizeable formation too. Do we know how credible the witness is? My gut reaction was that his story was too convenient but given that an above poster made the good point that there is still snow in the grooves,the salt theory wouldn't likely apply here. That said I'm a little skeptical of the "angel voices". Great post OP. Its got me thinking.

So thats how big the lines are that make up the snow circle?

Yeah....it snowed again?

Don't get me wrong, I'm all excited for new crop circles, but melting the snow is the first thing I thought of. Not much detective work you can do either with the information provided, maybe check the recent weather for that area for that time period.
