The Crop Circles on this page are all fakes.



Tan Hill, nr Stanton St Bernard, Wiltshire.

Reported 28th July.


This formation is remarkable, not only in its complexity, but in the design. Some believe it is man made, but if so, it would require exact measurements and execution. The great difficulty is that it was created in four stages, on four succeeding nights. We can understand the dangers of being discovered if man did it. The following diagram shows the stages:



Stage One


Note the unfinished segment above the circle to the right.

Stage Two

Unfortunately, I can find no photographs of Stage Three,

except for a shot that is unclear.

Note the manmade tire tracks which appear in the upper

left corner in this stage. These come directly off the

tractor tracks made by the farmer for spraying his field.

This strongly suggests that a vehicle entered the formation

in the process of creation and hence was manmade.

Savernake Forest, nr Marlborough, Wiltshire. Reported 28th July.






















This formation consists of a square inside a circle with nine identical design elements.

Unfortunately, the standing grain segments are not identical from one element

to another. The lines are uneven and irregular. This shows it was man made.

Beacon hill, near Burghclere, Newbury,
Berkshire. Reported 28th July.


While this formation seems to be heavenly made several objections exist to this assumption.


It repeats a "dolphin" design from a previous year. This shows an attempt to copy, rather than formulate a unique design.


Some of the curves are irregular, not clean. This may be seen in an attempt to reconstruct the design, below. For example, on the right we find considerable deviation from the ideal design.


The angle of the lines is not always according to the ideal.


And so on.

As stated by Zef Damen, the individual who did the reconstruction:


The final result, matched with the aerial image, fits well in most places. The assumed symmetry of the formation happens to be not accurate in some places.


We must conclude that it is a sophisticated man made formation.


Several other sophisticated formations exhibit the same finesse. I do not show them here.


Still other formations show a human signature consisting of two small dots of standing wheat placed within a clear area of the design.


Men are getting good at imitating heavenly works.

Silbury Hill (2), nr Beckhampton, Wiltshire.

Reported 2nd August.

This is one of the most incredible formations to be witnessed in crop circles. Regardless of the complexity, examination of the design shows that it is manmade. It appeared on two successive nights, simply because it could not be completed by men in one night. Fortunately, we have documentation of the history of the formation.


Formation on first night.


Formation on second night.

Refer to photographs on the right.

If you examine the photograph above you can see where the circle makers were not consistent. Some of the loops do not have the extra limb. Also, the loops are irregular in formation.

Furthermore, some one must have stumbled in the night to create a marring of the inner "feathers."  You can see a production of pathways through the feathers that is irregular from one side of the formation to the other. All in all, a meritorious effort.


The Tell Tale Evidence

As Andreus Muller reports:

Beside a few better parts, the inside shows a rough execution, very heavily flattened and mechanical lay – portraying all sorts of evidence for human stomping activity. Finally just before we went out of the formation those conclusions got even more confirmed by the discovery of three white marking-plates numbered 2, 4 and 6 (See photos). Those are known to be used by several hoaxers (just as by “Team Satan/The Circlemakers” and are shown on several of their photos documenting commissioned formations) to point out and mark specific geometric positions in a nocturnal field. All three were placed on top of each other and when we took them apart they were watery wet in-between, showing more or less that they were not placed here just short time before we came in (at about 3:30pm) but already very likely during the night.

My note: The stacking of the marker plates shows that the circle fabricators intended to pick them up before they left but forgot them.
