Kansas Crop Circle Experiment - June, 2002
In June, 2002, we made a small crop circle in the midwest United States to scientifically test the effects of the circle on our research equipment, including our Trek-520 static electricity meter. The circle was about 12 feet in diameter and took about 5 minutes to construct using a stalk-stomping board. We found that the circle changed the static meter by over 2500 volts compared to readings in the rest of the wheat field. When the slides of the film were developed several months later we found strange light anomalies on many of the slides. Pictures taken of other locations on the same roll of film were not effected. This incident supports the idea that manmade formations create paranormal effects. If you have any explanations of your own please lets us know using the email link at the bottom of the Opening Minds page or contact Rocky Mountain Research Institute.
New Zealand Formation made by Matt Williams for Japanese TV- December, 2001
The formations below were made by Matt William's circlemaking team for a Japanese TV show on crop circles. Williams gave the TV crew 20 formations to choose and they chose the design below. The first photo shows this formation which took 3 hours to make at night. It was modelled on a crop formation made by an unknown artist that appeared in 1999 in Allington, England, seen in the third and fourth photos. The scaffolding for the TV cameras can be seen behind the formation next to the road. The insectoid-looking formation in the second photo was made at the same location in about 2 hours at night.
"Earth is Missing" Formation, UK, August 2001
Made for the movie "A Place to Stay" by Matt William's Circlemaking Team
This formation was made by the Matt Williams circlemaking team for a British movie. The formation took about 6 hours to construct at night. The formation was a replica of a crop circle that appeared in Hampshire, U.K. in 1995.
Hilmarton Crop Circle Experiment - July, 2001
In July, 2001, we made several crop circles in the Hilmarton area of England. The largest circle took about 6 hours to make during night and part of the following day. We were beginners and were not trying to set any speed records. The first photo on the left shows the large formation before completion. The photo on the right shows the finished formation the next day. Two of the people who helped us make the formation were seventy-year old women. The experiment showed us that people can make the big formations. The large formation below is 300 feet in diameter.
Beckhampton Crop Circle Experiment - July, 2001
This formation below was made according to researcher Masao Maki's specifications to test whether human circlemakers could make a complex design. The pattern is based on the logo for his restaurant seen below. The formation was constructed in three hours at night by Matthew Williams and his associates with the permission of the farmer.
Cherhill Formation - July, 2000
This formation below was made at night by seven human circlemakers with only three "stomper" boards. I wtinessed the entire event which took a total of about 5 hours. The crop is young barley and some of the circlemakers were beginners. The picture on the left below was the black and white pattern I was shown ahead of time. The circlemakers had spent days designing the pattern. The finished formation is shown as the second photo. The last photo is an actual nightshot of one of the circlemakers constructing the formation. I did not participate in the construction of the formation which occurred near the town of Cherhill in England.
Devil's Den (Fyfield Down) Anomalies, UK, - July, 1999
This formation was made by a very talented circle artist and his team. The crop circle affected electronic equipment for weeks. Below are pictures of GPS batteries that were instantly drained by the formation. The circlemaker who made the formation does not know why formation has this effect.
