In this section MUFON presents articles from credible paranormal sources regarding the growing number of examples of the temporary “earth art” more commonly known as crop circles. Readers may be interested to learn that crop circles are among the earliest known land anomalies whose creation had been attributed to beings from other realms.
Crop Circles Explained
While veteran crop circle researchers readily admit that up to 80% of crop circles are likely manmade, there is research stating that some of these formations could not have been created by human life. Explanations as to how these anomalies have been crafted range from animals, college students, general hoaxsters as well as by Nature itself.
It has been well-documented on video that even an elaborate crop circle design may be executed by cover of night by several persons using no more than wood planks, their feet and lengths of rope. As for the remaining over 20% of authenticated crop circle designs, these have intriguing dissimilarities to even well-crafted, manmade earth art.
In these articles you’ll quickly learn what differentiates “genuine” alien crop circles from a well made counterfeit. Crop circles as explained by trained paranormal investigators demonstrate that these have been constructed by unknown techniques that impact plant matter in unusual ways. As evidence, researchers have presented a number of characteristics including the changes to plant material that has been flattened to form the design. In clearly man-made crop circles, the plant material has been stomped and crushed whereas in formations attributed to extraterrestrials, the plant material has been woven together when flattened.
There are many more exciting differences between crop circles whose origins are unknown and those that are clearly hoaxes. These include bent stalks on plant material that cannot be bent. It has also been noted that the soil under presumed alien crop circles becomes dehydrated and remains so even after a heavy downpour. Researchers also report that crop circles can make detectable sounds for several days after their formation.
