That can be made with salt, you draw what you want with salt and when the snow falls it will melt where you salted.

Or use the dispaced snow to do the same.

Sorry guys, I'm usually a huge CC supporter, but this holds no water, IMO.
I need to see something much more impressive.

I don't think salt was used.

There is still snow between the blades of grass in the ruts.
It has been scooped out.

Dredging comes to mind.
A sled that scoops as it goes.

What is taken out is scattered back over the tracks you made to create it.
Besides which, I can see footprints in the ruts themselves.

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

What is there to debunk? is there a theory for how these were done to be debunked?

I can think of different ways I could try to do that. Lack of "compacting" can be explained by fresh snow falling a second time on previously compacted snow.

So far it looks like a pretty neat trick. I can't figure it out... therefore a meteor did it.....Just kidding.

The same here JayinAR - I'm not buying for the reasons you and others have already mentioned:

*look closely, and you'll see rake-like marks on the sides and bottom of t the trench.
*Why such few pics? More closeups of each area, as well as the whole c circle shot
*Snow can be compressed quite deeply without it displacing other snow!
just go put your boot into a pile of snow and see what happens.

Pretty in the snow, but not convinced we're looking at any sort of phenomena here.

It would seem they had some type of say premade plastic lightweight type rings about 3 or 4 sizes...and they would place them on the ground maybe walk around to the other side then place the next one on the ground and etc...till they were out of the pic...?!!? Sounds like it would work 2 me..Merry Christmas ATS!

Oh wow, I went looking through that Van den broeke dude's crop circle/flying saucer/ water droplets on the lens pictures. Didn't read more than a few lines here and there of the story but I really hope that those people don't take it seriously. The b.s. in there is shockingly transparent.

I'm not falling for this. Because oval perfectionism its far from that! If it was not man made then these were perfect circles and had some evidence to back up the mysterious originating of this formation.

well when you look at ait, it looks real.
but when you pay more attention to the circles. theyre too uneven to be extraterrestial made.

I don't know if this was mentioned, I didn't read through the whole thread.

I'll toss this in anyway.

those are good.
thank you

from my perspective, the ice circles not only seem plausible but logical and therefore expected

but i don't think these crop circles are the same phenomenon
there have been the occasional snow crop circle over the years but it's very rare.



"Have crop circles occurred in snow covered fields? Absence of entry/exit tracks here would certainly lend credibility as to their authenticity."

Snow Circles are extremely rare! In the Himalayas in 1975, a grouping of four circles were photographed below a mountain range, but Ice Rings have been discovered in northern Sweden, and also 3-4 inches deep Salt Bed Rings in America. These events are few and far between, but nevertheless can not be ignored as a possible link?

interesting to note that they have been discovered in salt beds.

once the snow begins to melt, even a little, all disturbances, no matter how carefully covered over, will begin to manifest.

there ain't no lying in the snow.

OMG I found another picture!
The tracks are highly irregular and complex, no human could possibly make something like this. A higher intelligence must be responsible and it's trying to tell us something.

You mustn't live on my estate! Our salt bins are never filled up!

OP: I can see where the snow has been dragged away and where the grass is flattened under the snow.
Plus, I'd hope that if the aliens were gonna come down and draw circles in our snow they'd make a neater job of it! That'd just be laziness!
The outer edges are a bit messy and the circles aren't exactly perfect.
Plus I agree that it would be easy to walk from one to another.
And snow makes it quite easy to cover your tracks if you tread lightly. I have ferrets and I made a big indentation in the snow on top of their hutch, next day it'd snowed pretty heavily and the circle was gone. Not too difficult to do.
Plsu you could just brush over them if it was soft enough, which it has been.

So yeah, I'm pretty convinced that these are a hoax.
Someone saw the recent snowfall as a good opportunity to go out and have a laugh, eh?

If the snow outside my house was more than just ice, I'd have a wander out and see what I could do myself, covering up footprints and stuff.
Shame really, wudda given me something to do

I would have to lean towards a fake I must say... although without the full picture one would never know

Shows more images and how the formation looked after the snow was, almost, gone
There's also a diagram showing whole of the formation
