Where They’re Found
Most circles are concentrated in the south of England, mostly in the counties of Hampshire and Wiltshire. Many have also been found near Avebury and Stonehenge. But crop circles have also been reported in the US, Canada, Australia, and Japan. The ’season’ for crop circles typically runs from April to September, during the growing season. Circles are usually created at night under cloak and dagger when they wouldn’t likely be seen. Most circles are found in low-lying areas close to steep hills, possibly explaining the wind theory of their creation.
Who Creates Crop Circles?
Some claim they’re the work of UFOs, a natural phenomenon, or elaborate deceptions carried out by circlemakers.
UFO’s and Aliens
The most controversial theory is that crop circles are the work of aliens. Believers feel the circles are either the imprint left by landing spacecraft or messages brought from afar. Some eyewitnesses claim to have seen UFO-like lights and strange noises coming from crop circle sites.
Scientific theory suggests that crop circles are created by small currents of swirling winds called vortices. The spinning columns force a burst of air down to the ground, flattening the crops. Vortices are common in hilly areas in parts of southern England.Dr.Terence Meaden of the Tornado and Storm Research Organization (TORRO) in Wiltshire, England, says the vortices that create crop circles are charged with energy — called the Plasma Vortex Theory. When dust particles get caught up in the spinning charged air, they can appear to glow, explaining the UFO-like lights many witnesses have seen near crop circles.
Some researchers theorize that small airplanes or helicopters stir up downdrafts, pushing the crops down, but attempts to replicate the perfectly round circles have failed.
