As the crop season draws to a close in England, August has been another busy month for crop circles with 18 formations recorded so far, mostly in the county of Wiltshire.

The first pattern appeared on Aug. 1, just outside the village of Avebury, adjacent to the neolithic stone circle surrounding the settlement. The image bears similarities to four other formations seen earlier in 2012 that have all been interpreted to represent the current astronomy of Venus.

Another crop circle materialized the next day at Chalk Pit with a relatively simple spiral pattern.

Others included a series of labyrinth knots, multiple discs arranged in a hexagon, and also on a square-shaped grid.

Local farmers have been busy harvesting the crops while the weather has been dry, although a few more formations may crop up over the coming days before the season ends.

    I’ll say it again; all the skeptics have to do is get the best landscape artists and take the most complicated crop circle and replicate it. Overnight. If they can do it without a trace that they were there then that will end this controversy. If they can’t it speaks for itself.

    but what is the meaning of all this crop circles ?

    • Tsuroshi

      Perhaps the meaning is to cause people to ask that question.

    • Janine

      Jurgen I believe that there warnings from maybe aliens . Warning us of coming earthquakes or future disasters. Or maybe maps of there solar system. Maybe that sounds crazy but if it’s just a hoax it,s just to perfectly made for just us mere humans to make and what would they go to all that trouble for if it’s just a joke?

        I think you might be right.

        Guys,

        I just figured out from my research what is triggering earthquakes and I believe these circles are a way of communication to us from Dark Matter. Since it makes up 25% of the universe I believe this is where we will find most intelligence.

    Well, the fact that whoever did this managed to create 2 on the 1st august, one on the 9th, one on the 12th and then another one on the 15th, 20th and 23rd without getting caught speaks volumes on it’s own.

    crop circles are real but a majority of them are hoaxed, And they’re definitely trying to tell us something. but it’s hard to tell with all the disinformation and hoaxes.

    Surely the obvious thing to do is to get all the hoaxers to agree to be inactive for a particular 2-week period and then see what happens in that period. Course, you’d have to fit ‘em with tags or some such to know if they were sticking to their side of the bargain….
