Crop Circles

What are crop circles?
Crop circles are patterns that were created in giant fields. The crop circles are created when areas in the field are tamped down. The crops are not damaged rather flattened down, the crops continuous to grow as normal. The edges of the crop circles are very clean and precise. The pattern of crop circles vary, sometimes the design of crop circles are just simple circles other times its usually very decorative with many interconnecting, geometric shapes. The crop circles have been seen as early as 1500s. In the 17th century English woodcut showed a devilish creature known as "mowing devil" creating such crop circles.
Around 1880s a scientist named John Rand Capron had described the field of wheat being "knocked about" in small patches in a circular spots. He stated that "... I could not trace locally any circumstances accounting for the peculiar forms of the patches in the field ... They were suggestive to me of some cyclonic wind action ..."
Around 1960s and '70s both in England and United States crop circle was beginning to appear. Around 1990s crop circles grabbed the attention of many people, making it a tourist attraction. Around 1990s around 500 crop circles had been created in just Europe. The visitation became so popular that farmers started profiting from thus phenomenon by charging people to see the crop circles.


  1. Some of these crop circles are very interesting as to what could they mean or if they are even real. It also seems as though they could just be a farmer that wanted so publicity and made an interesting design while harvesting his crops and called it aliens!

  2. I think crop circles are very interesting and they remind me of the movie Signs.

  3. Yeah seeing crop circles reminds me of signs and I think they are really interesting.
