The first crop circle of the 2016 season (northern hemisphere) has been reported on April 8, 2016 in Hoeven, Holland. The simple quintuplet formation circle in grass was discovered by intuitive Robbert van den Broeke, who for years has been able to ‘know’ when a formation might appear and has recorded many intriguing camera images and experiences (including a famous crop circle formation eyewitness account which occurred when Nancy Talbott of the BLT research group visited Robbert). With this new crop circle, Robbert ‘felt’ something else would occur the next day. He was drawn to his window where he saw a UFO and was as able to video it. Visitors to the new circle also saw a similar unexplained object in the sky.
The link between crop circles and UFOs is a fascinating one – and one which I hope to explore in future posts. Whatever you may believe, I feel that is important to document these experiences and keep an open mind. For instance, there have been many reports of ‘balls of light’ in and around crop circles. Some have even been filmed or photographed. While many can be explained away as dust, water droplets or reflected insects, others cannot be easily identified. And then there are the photos in a few Canadian formations for which I have no explanation! Here are a few from the archives of the Canadian Crop Circle Research Network (CCCRN):
On another note, I hope to post more regularly now that the crop circle season is upon us. I will be including photos and reports from the Canadian archives – crop circles which have come and gone but are worth revisiting. I am also happy to announce that I will be speaking about Canadian Crop Circles on the morning of Sunday June 26 at the ALIEN COSMIC EXPO held in Brantford, Ontario from June 24-26, 2016. I’ll also be interviewed about this on May 26 on Aquarian Radio Online . I am very much looking forward to these events as well as my presentation at the Summer Crop Circle Lectures in late July in the UK. I am travelling quite a bit this year but am open to speaking about Canadian crop circles at any event – which I do free of charge because I feel the phenomenon is that important.
