the anomalies of
by Geoff Stray
Here we present a review of anomalies connected to the crop circle phenomenon,
to which the official science cannot give an explanation.

Woodborough crop

HISTORY: Crop circles go back at least to the 1920s, if not beyond (earliest report so far discovered date back to 1590).
DISTRIBUTION: They occur worldwide (e.g. 1997; USA, Australia, Brazil, Canada, Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, Germany, Nether lands, Belgium, UK).
PERPETRATORS - NON/SUPER-HUMAN? They have appeared in a field cordoned off by infra—red cameras and motion detectors; no human activity was detected. 
EYE/EAR WITNESSES: At least a dozen people have witnessed formations occurring in front of them. In one case — Vivien & Gary Tomlinson — this was accompanied by an extremely loud noise like “pan—pipes”, which actually perforated Vivien s eardrums. 
VISIBLE NODAL CHANGES: Nodes on the stems of plants from a formation often show nodal elongation or enlargement far beyond explicable natural causes, such as phototropism or negative geotropism. Sometimes, large holes or “expulsion cavities” are evident, where moisture has exploded out.
CELLULAR CHANGES: Over 90% of samples from formations studied every year show microscopic pit-holes in the nodal cells, indicating flash heating in a micro-second.
CARBON BLACKENING: Some plants in crop formations have been found covered with a thin layer of carbon.
GERMINATION CHANGES: Seeds from within a crop formation show marked differences in germination to that of control samples. The germination rate is either vastly increased, or slow and inconsistent, or even refuses to germinate at all. 
PERIMETER STALKS: Some stalks are pulled into the flow from beyond the perimeter stalks - this does not happen when the formation is made with boards or rollers.
CROP SELECTIVITY: It has been observed on several occasions that odd stalks of another crop, or sometimes, other plants, such as thistles, remain standing, while the crop is laid flat.
BENT RAPE STEMS: Early UK formations are often in oilseed rape, in which the stems are found to be bent right over. This is an impossible effect to hoax, since rape stems are very brittle. Some samples taken from formations continue bending into a 360 degree curl.
NITROGEN / NITRATE RATIOS: In 1995, the Agricultural Development and Advisory Service found an increase in the nitrogen/nitrate ratios inside some formations, but the ADAS department which did the tests was immediately shut down afterwards. This research has since been taken up again by Jim Lyons, who stated in 1998 that the results again showed an increase, and that they would soon be published. (I haven't found them yet).
TIME DILATION: 2 separate groups of experiments have been performed showing that clocks inside formations lose or gain time compared to those outside.
MAGNETIC ANOMALIES: Magnetic effects can be seen in some formations using a compass, which can deviate several degrees from true North. If a magnet is dragged round the formation, there will sometimes be iron particles found sticking to it. Also, minute, partially melted particles of meteoritic magnetite have been found in a centrifugally distributed pattern.
ELECTRO/MECHANICAL FAILURES: Many electronic gadgets have been found to fail inside crop formations, including cameras, video equipment, power-packs, and tape recorders. They often function perfectly just outside the formation. Several TV crews have picked up severe interference. Mobile phones, if the batteries work, often won’t transmit or receive in the formation. Combine harvesters have also broken down several times while harvesting formations.
PHOTOGRAPHIC ANOMALIES: Many photographic anomalies have occurred in formations, but the most inexplicable one shows a ghosting effect in part of the image; the people photographed inside a formation are recorded in 2 images, but in the ghosted one, they have moved relative positions!
MENSTRUAL DISRUPTION: Some formations have caused disruption of the female menstrual cycle, and in some cases, even post- menopausal bleeding following a visit to a crop formation. 
ENDOCRINE EFFECTS: Lucy Pringle has announced the results of a test in which the melatonin levels in 2 subjects had been found to rise significantly after visiting a crop formation. Melatonin is produced in the pineal gland, and has many effects, including pituitary gland output, and thence the hypothalamus, these last 2 in turn, inhibiting gonadal hormone output. This could explain the menstrual effects. Melatonin can also cause elation and REM sleep — the dream states that correspond to theta activity in the brain. There may also be a connection to the magnetic anomalies, since Serena Roney Dougal has found that electro magnetic fields can affect melatonin production.
BALLS OF LIGHT: Many people have reported seeing balls of light at night, over crop fields in which new formations are discovered the following day. Several videos have been filmed of balls of light in crop formations, apart from the infamous Oliver’s Castle footage. Even crop-circle hoaxers have admitted encountering ‘flashes of light, pillars of light, and balls of light‘, while out in the crop fields.
MIRACLE CURES: Lucy Pringle reports having  taken many people with arthritis and rheumatism into the formations, who, she suggests, have subsequently recovered. A woman who had Parkinson’s disease stopped shaking for 24 hours, and one deaf person  permanently recovered their hearing.
DEAD PORCUPINES AND DECAPITATED DOGS: In the 1991-93, in Canada, (in 2 separate events), 2 porcupines were found dead in crop formations. One was blackened and almost disintegrated. The other was squashed flat. (links to dead porcupines and decapitated dogs)
SCARED HORSES & HOWLING DOGS: Horses have been observed to refuse to go into a crop formation, even while being whipped  by a humiliated farmer's wife. Dogs often bark madly the night of a formations arrival. One farmer s dog stopped 15 metres from a fresh formation and howled when its owner went in. On the 2nd day it went down to 10m, on the 3rd day, 5m, and on the 4th day, the dog entered the formation. 
UNDERGROUND WATER: According to Glenn Broughton and Steve Page, who have continued research started by Brian Grist., 90% of formations in Southern England lie on aquifers (water-carrying rocks — mainly chalk, limestone and greensand).
INTRICATE LAY: The crop in a genuine formation is often found to be in layers, with each layer swirled in a different direction. Some of the smaller, outlying circles are often found swirled into cones with a hollow in the centre — the stems are woven together like corn dollies. Bundling is another effect, where the crop is twisted into bundles as it is laid down, with the leaves coiling round groups of 4 or 5 stems.
RADIATION ANOMALIES: The Grasdorf formation in Germany 1992, registered a radiation level 76% above the safe legal limit in German work-places; it dropped back to a lower reading later, which is normally impossible - radiation levels usually stay constant. Michael Hesemann suggested that the Geiger-counter may have been picking up “a hitherto unknown energy”.
TRILLING NOISE: A 5 to 5.2 KHZ buzzing, or “trilling” sound has been heard and recorded in several formations. It was detected by a BBC sound engineer, and recorded on his tape, just before his camera broke down. Although it has been said to be identical to the call of the Grasshopper Warbler, the BBC tape has been analyzed by a NASA specialist, who said it is NOT birdsong. What is more, in the famous Billy Meier UFO case, in 1975—76, Meier had recorded a 5.2 KHZ buzz.
RAPID DAYLIGHT APPEARANCE: The “Julia Set”, a fractal pattern of 151 circles that appeared at Stonehenge in July 1996 appeared in broad daylight, between 5.30 p.m. and 6.15 p.m., according to a pilot who flew over the area, and back again 45 minutes later. Two other witnesses — a farm worker, and a security guard at Stonehenge confirmed that there was definitely nothing there earlier in the day.
INSECTS STUCK TO CROP: In some formations, flies have been found stuck to the crop, by their wings, as if the wings have partially melted, or by their tongues.
WHITE  SUBSTANCE: A white sticky substance, or white crystal powder or sometimes a white cob-web-like substance reminiscent of the UFO-related "angel-hair", is sometimes found in formations. Dr. Levengood has tested some of these, and found a silicon-hydrogen compound which had been formed at over 3000 degrees Celsius.
The earliest known crop circle, known as the "Mowing Devil", is shown on this woodcut from Hertfordshire, England, 1678. The inscription on the woodcut is as follows: 

THE MOWING-DEVIL: OR, STRANGE NEWS OUT OF HARTFORD-SHIRE. Being a True Relation of a Farmer, who Bargaining with a Poor Mower, about the Cutting down Three Half Acres of Oats: upon the Mower's asking too much, the Farmer swore That the Devil should Mow it rather than He. And so it fell out, that very Night, the Crop of Oat shew'd as if it had been all of a flame: but next Morning appear'd so neatly mow'd by the Devil or some Infernal Spirit, that no Mortal Man was able to do the like. Also, How the said Oats ly now in the Field, and the Owner has not Power to fetch them away. Licensed, August 22nd, 1678
