Crop Circles

Crop Circles

I have been intrigued by crop circles since I first heard about them several years ago when living in the UK.  But even though this was the first I heard of them, these circles have been discovered around the world over the past two centuries – They were witnessed by policemen and farmers as far back as 1890, they exist in the folklore of South Africa and China and are mentioned in 17th Century academic texts. (quote from Crop Circles

And then, through a friend, I heard about Freddy Silva and his fascination and work on them. He has produced a fantastic book on the subject – “Secrets in the Fields“.  In the site – Crop Circles Secrets it states

Crop circles are scientifically proven to be manifestations of energy under intelligent guidance.  Over 80 eyewitnesses describe them to be made by tubes of light in less than 15 seconds. The evidence for crop circles as a genuine phenomenon is found in Freddy Silva’s book Secrets in the Fields and throughout this site.”

Crop circles first appeared in the fields of southern England in the mid-1970s.   These circles were quite simple; they appeared overnight in various farmers’ fields in amongst the wheat, rape, oat, and barley. The crops were flattened, the stalks were bent but not broken. And there was no sign of entry through the fields to the circles.

The county of Wiltshire is the acknowledged centre of the phenomenon of crop circles.  Wiltshire is one of the most mystical places on earth and the county is the home of  sacred Neolithic sites including Stonehenge, ,Avenbury   and Silbury Hill.  and these circles seem to appear most often in close proximity to ancient and sacred sites.  It is an area well worth a visit when in England.

Crop circles have been reported in Australia, South Africa, China, Russia, and many other countries.  But southern England is still the hub of the activity and we are told that more than 100 formations appear in the fields there each year.

Discussions on whether these circles are man-made or not range widely.  Because of my interest I attend lectures and presentations where this phenomenon is the topic.  Divergent opinions always surface, usually with the presenter being in favour of some other source of the circles while there is always at least one in the audience vociferously opposed to this.

Serious crop circle researchers seem to agree that the majority of the circles are not made by humans and seem to be messages from unknown intelligence.  These researchers include those with advanced degrees in science and engineering.

If you are interested in reading more about crop circles and whether or not they are an elaborate hoax perpetrated by men/women around the world either read the book Secrets in the Fields or go to and read Joseph E Mason’s take on this.

  1. Now Husband and I were just having a discussion about crops circles a couple days ago. I’m going to check out that website.


  2. Oh my goodness! You’re going to send me off on a tangent. I haven’t read Silva’s book, but I’ve read others. I watched a documentary, darn I can’t remember the man’s name, he was older than Silva. Anyway, I’m fascinated by crop circles and other mysteries. What we experience with our five senses is not all there is to life.


  3. Ha ha, I went to bookmark that Crop Circle Secrets site, but it was already in my bookmarks!


    • My bookmarks are almost taking over now – will have to weed some out. Glad you are on the track of crop circles too and I am sure you will find Freddy Silva’s book interesting (if a trifle hard reading). 🙂


  4. I’m a great one for beleiving there’s an answer for everything.
    The trick is to not always need the answers but to enjoy trying to find them. 😀


  5. Hi Judith. I have long been fascinated by the crop-circle phenomenon but must admit I haven’t really done any research. Thanks for serving this up on a platter for me. Very interesting.


  6. Hi,
    Its Colin Andrews ( ) and Im sure there has been an over-sight of some kind and no big deal but the copyright of the ball of light over a crop design is not the copyright of my friend Freddy Silva but mine. It was made for me by fellow researcher Gary Keel but given, hence my copyright for public use. I have no problem for you to leave it on your site, just ask you change the copyright. Thanks. Colin Andrews


    • Oh Colin I am so sorry. I made an assumption that was obviously incorrect. Thank you for your understanding – I am going right now to change the copyright on the ball of light. Again thanks for being understanding. I certainly had no intention of breaching copyright. I am going over to yur site to have a look around as obviously you too are fascinated by crop circles.


  7. I didn’t realize crop circles were such a widespread phenomenon. You never cease to amaze me with the material you find.


    • I occasionally get carried away and then can spends days/weeks researching. And it is so much easier now that we have access to all that is on the internet. 🙂

  9. When I think of crop circles, I think of the very scary Mel Gibson movie, Signs. Have you ever seen it?


So what's on your mind?
