The crop circle pictured here appeared on June 3 at Wakerley Woods, Barrowden, Northamtonshire. Local residents had not seen it the day before its appearance, suggesting that it may not be hoaxed. Further testing will be needed before it can be identified as a certain unknown.
Researcher Geoff Stray has observed what may be some important relationships between this circle and the Mayan calendar. The Mayans had a calendar that included some ‘long count’ cycles, one of which has been of great interest recently because it ends in December, 2012.
The end of this cycle, known as the 13-Baktun Cycle, was predicted to involve profound changes and upheavals, including a complete revision of the whole nature of mankind.
