A spectacular crop circle in a wheat field alongside the A272 at Cheesefoot Head is the best of the year, says a Sheet expert.
The pattern is about 250 metres in size and appears to be a labyrinth design, which historically has been used for religious, ritual and magic purposes.
Lucy Pringle, a founder member of the Centre for Crop Circle Studies in Sheet, said the mile long endless looping pattern is the "best this year."
She said: "To me its labyrinth design represents our journey through life. I think it's beyond the wit of man to produce something as intricate as this, as its geometric precision is highly accurate. But however it got there, to me it personifies the wonderful spirit of the Olympic Games."
The field, just yards from the A272, belongs to Peveril Bruce, owner of the Matterley Bowl estate, venue of the Boomtown music festival, and there has been speculation about a connection between festival-goers and the circle. The pattern was spotted by a passing lorry driver, whose high cab allowed him to look down into the wheat field to view it.
Whether man-made, aliens, inter-dimensional or Cymatics, this thing is a work of beauty.
The fact that the 'ribbon; is almost a mile long is outstanding.
Anyway, I was not really sure what form to put this in, as it could deal with many things, but seeing as it is not 'normal', paranormal would be best. If it would be better in another forum, feel free to move it.
I saw this and had to share it with all of you.
It really puzzles me why one would cross the Galaxy not to convey a message or establish communication but instead makes this Endeavour to set up some intergalactic art gallery

To each in his own time.
It matters not when you come around, only that you do.
I just hope that when you do, you are able to do so without getting too embarrased.
As with most Crop Circles, IT MAY be explainable, but they aren't ALL explainable.edit on 15-10-2012 by Screwed because: (no reason given)edit on 15-10-2012 by Screwed because: (no reason given)
Exactly.....I'm still waiting for the guys with the planks to make a vid to show how they produce something as sharp and symmetrical as this. I have seen some human made circles, and frankly, they were complete rubbish...nowhere near as fabulous as this one. If the human circlers are so creative and skilled in what they do, wouldn't you think they would be showing off what they do to debunk the whole thing?
And we're assuming, like Screwed points out, that they all have the same source...maybe they don't. Maybe sone are alien artwork, and some genuinely are two dudes with a plank and a rope after the pub. But I doubt it.
It's a gorgeous circle though, right enough.

Amazing. I love earring about these crop circles. Such precision. I saw a Convincing video on tv a long time ago about UFOs flying over a field and then a crop circle appearing. It was a long time a go so I'm doubting its fake but either way I'm still on the fence about any crop circles

What was always amazing to me is that people never feel bad for the farmers who are having their crops totally destroyed by the people making these circles. Even granting that some may be truly made by an unidentifiable source, the people who do these should be ashamed.

I lived in the UK for two years from 1995-1997. I worked at Intel corp., 12 miles from Avebury and Silbury Hill. I used to go to Avebury for lunch on many occasions.
I've gone into these crop circles and there is one aspect of these things that you cannot explain away and there is no way Doug and Dave could have done them. The crop circles occur in fields of dry crops. If you've ever looked at a wheat stalk, or a barley stalk, they are like a straw with very thin walls and hollow inside. The walls of these dried crops are extremely brittle and the slightest bend causes the stalk to collapse. If you were to try and drink through a straw that is bent you would find it impossible. However, in the crop circles I went into the stalks were not crushed as they would be if someone used a plank to press the crops down. Instead the stalks were perfectly curved with the 90 degree bends maintaining a perfect circle throughout the bend that had a radius of about a centimeter. These bends were hard and brittle and impossible to straighten without crushing them.
Something had to bend these by changing them at some molecular level to allow them to bend like this. There is no explaining that some people could have done these as a prank. I actually kept a few of these bent stalks and somehow they ended up lost. I wish I had taken photos of them.

Contrary to popular perception, crop circles are not a modern phenomenon. They are mentioned in academic texts of the late 17th Century, and over 200 cases have been reported prior to 1970. Some eighty eyewitnesses – as far flung as British Columbia and Australia – have reported crop circles forming in under twenty seconds; these witnesses describe sightings of incandescent or brightly-coloured balls of light which either precede a crop circle or are actively involved in its creation; in some cases shafts of light have descended onto a field and swirled the crop into a geometricshape in less than fifteen seconds. Such reports are often described by farmers.

There have been over 10 000 crop circles created so far.
And the first reported ones is from the 1600's.
