We have now received the full update plus other strange goings on where crop circle researchers are concerned .
The above image shows a small quirky formation at Knoll Down and some kind of strange looking crop imprint which is depicting some kind of face ( This is also visible in Google Earth where there is no crop in the field )
We can now confirm that this is the actual crop formation where Team 2 were spooked and abandoned the making of this crop circle to completion.
This crop circle attempt took place on the 20th Of June 2012 ( The night of the Solstice ) and it was not discovered until the 26th of June 2012.
We have also received the actual diagram of what the crop formation would have looked liked if it was completed on the night.
As seen below.
The artist and his assistants stated that out of the many wheat fields available to them they felt attracted to this particular field which was maturing Barley.
I have to say at this point, that as a probable rule circle makers would not choose a maturing Barley field especially at this stage in the season. This field in question also had that scruffy feel to it so this again would put off circle makers from making anything in this field as the crop formation would lack the finesse and definition.
So we asked the makers what was it exactly that they felt and why they chose this field ?
They said: ' We drove around for nearly three hours trying to find a suitable field. It was becoming frustrating as we could not decide which field to place our design in, there was plenty of fields available but we simply could not agree on which one. Then we decided to drive to the White Lion Inn for a drink but when we arrived there there was no where to park as the car parks were crammed with Solstice revelers so at this point we decided enough was enough and decided to head home. Just as we were heading towards Knoll Down location one of the guys was persistent and he kept on saying ' What about that field or that one ' - then as he said what about that one ( pointing to Knoll Down ) - we all turned to look at him and without any hesitation agreed. It was a bizarre moment as for over three hours we argued but now we all felt an eagerness, a surge to get into that particular field - it felt rather odd , I cant really explain why we felt this way.
Seeing what we partly created and that strange looking face in the field and then what happened there is highly strange but we can only guess. Perhaps our dagger design was inappropriate - maybe this is some sacred ground - maybe the date has some significance - who knows !
Well if you have any possible theory to add to this then we would love to hear from you.......
Anyway time to move onto some other interesting revelations about this Knoll Down formation. As we have already stated that this formation without any doubt was partly created on the night of the 20th of June 2012. It sat there quietly for 6 days before it was discovered. When we received the full update from the circle makers (morning of the 25th of June) who attempted to make this crop circle , we ourselves drove to the location very late that evening to confirm that it was actually there and indeed it was. So on the morning of 26th of June we released a ' rumor ' comment via Facebook. ( as seen below )
So this comment had then spiraled into a frenzy and all sorts of stories were being released that this crop circle was a miraculous day light creation ! ( As seen below )
Anyway - the story continues. As this crop circle is announced by none other than the experts above - flocks of curious believers pour in to this miracle of a creation including Crop Circle Connectors resident theorist Dr. Horace Drew ( Alias Red Collie ). As Red Collie is now an expert on man made crop circles as announced in the Wiltshire Times one would expect him to declare this as man made but NO he doesn't !
What Red Collie and others find within this little beauty is bent and burst nodes and even so does Charles Mallet ( shhh its a silent circle so we shouldn't be telling you all this as we will have our faces slapped ) and all because BLT says its scientific proof. NONSENSE - if I had a $500.000 donation then I too might have been tempted to make up some fancy tale, and I'm being honest here.
Within this formation there were still many green young stems - stems which were still catching up with growth with the rest of the crop in the field. Bent nodes are created by the plant raising its seed head towards the light - as the seed head is to heavy for the whole plant to rise fully it finds the nearest node to the seed head - these nodes provide nature the ability to raise at least the head back towards the light so the plant doesn't excel all the energy to perform a task of raising the entire stem. Also - in some cases, when the node is stretching it can occasionally burst - this happens more frequently after a prolonged rain fall which in this case we had plenty - the node simply bursts as moisture volume concentrates and builds up in the node part of the plant stem . ( Its like having water on the knee ) Find a weather damaged crop field and you will find plenty of burst and bent nodes in the areas where crop has been flattened by wind and rain alone. During hot spells and dry conditions and especially when crop is at a point of reaching maturity these nodes shrivel and burst as they tighten through a drying out process ( its like dry skin can split if no moisturizing cream is applied ). This is not rocket science !
So all these experts declare this gem of a formation a genuine paranormal creation based on these bent and burst nodes!!!!! Experts that you have relied on for information for the last 3 decades !!!!
As seen below :
We face lots of criticism simply because we do what everyone always wanted and thats to research and report and all for free . This is an industry which relies on capturing your spirit so men of egos and lies can rub their hands together and smile with full pockets all the way to the bank. PEACE
( Thank the stars above for making all this possible ! )
