Out There stories relating to "Crop Circle"

Friday, August 12, 2016

Still very much in question, but Linda Moulton Howe will have a special report on this formation on Dreamland this weekend. Much to report!

This formation, found on August 11, is coming into question. Creating it with any known technology would be very difficult indeed, but it is possible. Why do we say this? It seems that it is very similar to the logo of an online art site called MotherShipGlass. Does this mean, absolutely, that is it human construction? Not absolutely, but probably. We are attempting to contact the owner of the Mothership Glass website and will update you.

The extraordinary crop circle below has appeared near Torino, Italy. It appears to be filled with digital information in the form of dark and light triangles. Can you decode it? If so, send your ideas to whitley@strieber.com.

A large and complex crop formation has appeared in Salinas, California, in a field containing barley two feet high. Two videos made at night that showed some elements of the formation and flashes of light in the area have both been removed from YouTube, and replaced by a much clearer video that could be a recreation. There is daytime video of the formation, which is a circle about an acre in diameter enclosing what appears to be a representation of an electronic chip that contains a central field in braille. The braille repeats the number 192. In this video, a braille expert offers an explanation.

Linda Moulton Howe reports that a witness who entered the formation has told her that the way that the crop has been laid down is extremely precise. Read her report on the formation here. The field has reportedly been sealed off by a private security service, Echelon Security, and the formation is expected to be destroyed today.

There is no way to make a final determination about whether or not this is a hoax, but this seems increasingly likely as there is another report stating that locals saw people in the area over a period of days prior to the appearance of the formation.

Whitley Strieber comments: "This looks like a manmade hoax to me, largely because of the use of braille as a means of providing an intriguing but probably meaningless puzzle. However, it should also be noted that Iridium 192 is the isotope that has most often gone missing, and one that could be used to create a dirty bomb."

UPDATE: The Nvidia Corporation is claiming that it created the crop formation to promote a new microchip, but that doesn't change the fact that the number of UFO sightings in California and adjacent states has risen dramatically over the past month.

Not only did two crop formations appear in the same Brazilian town on the same day, researchers have offered a large cash reward to anybody who can prove them to be fakes. So, all you skeptics, get on the next plane and go for that twenty grand!

Now that farmers can hire circlmakers to decorate their fields for fun and PROFIT, more and more manmade formations are appearing. Some of them are even quite striking--from a distance. Up close, though, you find broken stems, no interweaving and generally rough edges. This formation, however, is among the most magnificent ever created. No human circlemakers are even close to the skill level required to create this superb work.

This would be an easy CGI effect to create, but Out There exists to take chances on videos like this. We really can't grade it. We've only had one or two YouTubers actually answer an inquiry, so we assume that most of them are hoaxers. but we've sent this one a message. If we get a reply, we'll let you know.

The farmer whose field received this gorgeous formation threatened to spray people entering it. He has harvested the field. Ah, life on a falling world, such a delight. Will the angels catch YOU in time?

A number of recent crop formations have been truly incredibe, completly impossible to produce by any known means. An excellent example is the huge formation at Etchilhampton, which displays a ring of woven wheat of an intircacy that cannot be explained. A formation such as this could not be made, for example, by some sort of a laser device pointing down from above, because the wheat must be literally woven like a carpet, and done without breaking the dry stems. Another at Roundway Hill near Devizes is also extraordinarily intricate and beautiful.

Two aerial shots of this crop formation at Honeystreet near Alton Barnes show it incomplete and then complete. It's unusual but not unknown for formations to be added to, but very unusual for one to be seen clearly unfinished, then later finished. The formation is also very challenging, and unlike those known to be created by human circle makers. The complexity of the design and the subtle crafting suggest that this may be of unknown origin.

This is one of the most extraordinary crop formations ever to appear. It's easy to dismiss as a hoax, much harder to determine how the hoaxers might have gone about creating it. In any case, it is beautiful, awe-inspring and very, very strange.
