The first photo of a crop circle took place in 1932 but it wasn’t until the 1970s that many symmetrical clusters started to appear. By the 1990s, hieroglyphical patterns were starting to emerge and today we see some very sophisticated geometrical patterns. Crop circles occur on a variety of crops including flax, wheat, corn, rape, broad beans, and even on bracken and heather. The landscape varies too although it has been noted that most occur on chalk where there is underground water. The UK, Germany, Italy, Australia, Croatia and Canada are the countries with the most occurrences; interestingly, the US hardly gets any despite the large amount of land space.
There are many theories that support the formation of crop circles. Andy convincingly explained why they cannot be man-made (the complexity of the design would take many days to complete yet these circles appear very quickly – or the fact that the crops are not broken or trampled nor is there any sign of mud when they appear after wet weather) and offered a number of possible explanations which have been cited over the years including:
Obviously there is no simple explanation but we were all amazed at the complexity and scale of the designs and it gave us much food for thought.
