2002 - 2

 

 

Longwood Warren, Cheesefoot Head, Nr Winchester, Hampshire. Reported 23rd June.

 

I believe this formation to be man made. The rings are irregular in width, badly so, the small ring circles are unevenly spaced, and other irregularities exist.

 

Uffington White Horse, nr Woolstone, Oxfordshire. Reported 23rd June.

 

 

Text from Howard Ambler: A complex design of 20-30 small circles up to 33 FT diameter coiled round into looping curves. Unusual radial "antennae" emanate from several of the large circles. The overall design looks to represent an insect with wings. The "cosmic joker" aspect suggests a dragon-fly as the formation is directly below "Dragon Hill" - the smaller hill below the White Horse.

 

The crop is wheat and completely green. Inside the circles it is recovering very fast and almost no spiral legs are present (as seen 30/6). The outline will be very indistinct by late July - although do not expect harvesting until late August.

 

My note: It would have been impossible for any human to stand on the outer edges of the "dragon wings" and produce the evenly spaced very thin lines, although it seems a poor representation of dragon-fly wings.

Normanton Down long barrows, nr Stonehenge, Wiltshire. Reported 4th July.

 

 

Text from Charles R. Mallett: July 4 2002, a major formation was discovered by a pilot out of Thruxton airfield, who quickly advised circles researchers that a huge and quite amazing formation was now on the deck next to the ancient Stonehenge monument. The pilot who discovered this formation, whilst on a routine training flight, was reported to have said that the field that now houses the formation was empty the previous day, making it quite certain that this was a one night event. 

As can be seen from the aerial images above, the new arrival spans 11 tramlines across the field, measuring in at an expansive 740 ft (approx).  Just a fraction smaller than the Milk Hill 409 event in 2001.  The formation can be seen to be an elaborated version of a 1999 circle event that had also appeared on the 4th July and at the time was considered to be a sophisticated and subjectively inspirational masterwork of stunning aesthetic appeal. Now the fully blossomed version has arrived at Stonehenge. Why? Never before I feel, has the 3D aspect of the Crop Circle phenomenon been carried off with such grace and precision as it has here. 

From the air, the formation is stunning.  From the ground, itís dazzling.  Without actually standing in this circle oneís ability to comprehend the technical, logistical and aesthetic achievement would be severely compromised.  What can be perceived from this level is a network of paths, slender curves and exceptionally neat laid crop areas that scream of uncompromising precision. Even though the weather had been terrible for many days prior to the arrival of the formation, all the laid areas examined

 

by myself and partner showed no signs of mud or obvious tramping /stomping marks at all, on the contrary, everything was very clean indeed. The whole thing had the look and feel of an event that was the result of a single action by a single agency, rather than any kind of team effort. Quite an enigma when one considers the fact that we were leaving very obvious mud and boot marks wherever we went within the smoothly laid areas. 

 

The positioning of this glyph within the field appears to be an integral part of the formation itself. Referring back to the aerial image, three ancient ground-barrows (burial mounds?) can be seen almost touching three sides of the formation, clearly purposeful and a massive feat of engineering, alone worthy of considerable respect.

 

My note: One can see the 3-D effect by following any one of the "ribbons" from the outside to the center. This is certainly a masterpiece of design.

Englishcombe, nr Bath, North Somerset.

Reported 7th July.

 

The formation is in young wheat. Note that the design is tied to a tractor line, with one of the spokes lying directly on the line. The overall size is about 3 1/2 tractor lines, nearly 200 feet.

East field, nr Alton Barnes. Wiltshire. Reported 15th July.

 

Text from Stuart Dike:

 

The late nineties and millennium years have seen designs that resemble mandalas, and indeed this is a major part of understanding the power of the designs within the fields. This is really where we are in the new millennium, trying to understand why these shapes have a certain presence in the fields, and what the phenomenon is causing within us and ultimately the landscape. There is no better location than East Field. Many formations have appeared in this field since 1990, but the Tree of the Universe is indeed the most unusual design to be witnessed in this huge field.

 

There are over 100 small circles making up the Apples, of the tree. Many of them have small standing centres, but the floor pattern within the tree trunk and the area either side is extremely flat. One of the flattest floor lays I have seen this year, but very neat in construction.

 

My note: The Tree of Life is found in many ancient myths. That the Circle Makers would produce this symbol for us should make us feel deep gratitude.

Sharpenhoe Clappers, nr Luton, Bedfordshire. Reported 15th July.

 

This formation appeared in wheat. The significance of the formation escapes us, except that it shows the continuing finesse of the Circle Makers.

Pewsey White Horse, nr Pewsey, Wiltshire. Reported 17th July.

 

 

A little after midnight on the 17 July, I was standing outside of our rented cottage at Manningford Abbot looking towards the Pewsey White Horse. 

I was there for about 20 minutes watching the sky.  During this time, I saw light activity in the sky above the field between Manningford and the White Horse. 

I was amazed to see that the lights repeatedly went vertically down to the ground.  I have never observed this before. 

I told my companions straight away and we were quite astonished to learn the next day that a crop circle had appeared in that specific area. 

Report by Guro Kokaas Parvanova, Norway.

Windmill Hill, nr Avebury, Wiltshire.

Reported 18th July.

Text from M.J.Fussell: After visiting the crop circle on the ground, I had the impression that it seems half finished. This was  confirm to me after looking at the later aerial shots of the formation a week later showing a change to a part of the section of the formation. I asked Zef Damen to reconstruct the formation  in its final phase.

Text from Zef Damen: I have made a gif file of the new Windmill Hill formation assuming it would be changed completely in the same way. The reconstruction does not change at all, only the colouring.

One can see the geometric illusion created by the design.

Here the Circle Makers, sometime after the initial construction, caused one outer section to be modified. If one carries this modification through to all sections, then the process ends with the graphic illustration below by Zef Damen.

 

One can see the amazing effect on the human eyes and brain by this six-pointed formation.
