Where can we find crop circles?
All over the world. In
England, USA, Germany, the Netherlands, Belgium, Poland, Italy, Denmark,
Finland, Russia, Israel, Australia, India, Japan, Canada.

Why certain places attract crop circles over and over again, is still a difficult question to answer. It seems that the presence of holographic lines (earth energy lines around and across the earth) play an important part. Our ancestors were very much aware of these energy lines; they built their sacred sites (such as burial mounds, long barrows, stone circles and pyramids) on places where powerful leylines crossed each other, thus forming leycentres. Maybe that's why so many crop circles appear in South England, where we can find a multitude of strong energy centers. Stonehenge is a very good example: situated in the heart of the crop circle area. Another example of such a powerful place is the East Field at Alton Barnes (Wiltshire), where at least one (and often two) beautiful and complex crop formations appear each year.
Yet it remains remarkable
that some places receive many crop formations in certain years, after
which the amount suddenly drops. This can even occur on a national scale.
For instance in the Netherlands where 1996 had a total amount of 99 crop
circles. In 1997 however the amount dropped to 41. How this works precisely
is still a question unanswered...
What is the life span of a crop circle?
One crop season, after
which the famer harvests his field.
However, the energy will be there for
a long time, I know of at least one case of six years. This means that
the contours of the formation (and thus the formation's energy) can still
be traced, for instance with the aid of a pair of dowsing rods. In some
cases the contours can be seen in the new crop of the next crop season.
When are crop circles formed?
When the plants involved
have grown enough to be flattened. In general this means between March
and September, when there are fields of crop. But also during the winter
crop circles appear, for instance in fields of grass.
Multiple eyewitnesses confirmed that they
were positive that this complex formation appeared in the late afternoon.
The eyewitnesses were all pilots, who had flown over Stonehenge around
17.30 h. when the formation had definitely not been there. When they flew
over Stonehenge once more at 18.00 h., the Juliaset was there...
There are more examples of crop circles that were formed during the day, but thanks to the fact that the Juliaset event was confirmed by multiple, independant witnesses, this remains a unique example.
Are crop circles made by man?
Not all of them. According to research carried out in the 1990s by Michigan biophysicist William C. Levengood and the BLT Research Team , a large majority of the crop formations examined contained specific plant and soil abnormalities which could not be caused by mechanical flattening of the plants ("hoaxes"). These abnormalities were found in plants from several hundred crop formations in 7 different countries, and consistently included statistically significant elongation (stretching) of the top nodes of the plants as well as expulsion cavities (holes blown out at lower stem nodes)--both changes indicative of exposure to brief, but intense, bursts of microwave radiation. The control plants (plants taken from outside the formations) in each case did not show these changes.
More scientists proved
that the crop formations they examined could not possibly have been made
by man. One of them is Dutch physicist Dr. Eltjo Haselhoff (chairman of
(Dutch Centre for Crop Circle Studies, our Dutch crop circle research
flattened grain, as ordered by the BBC (1998)
However, when asked about the scientific data, they had no answer. Furthermore it was weird that these men could leave their homes night after night, without their spouses noticing anything... On several occasions, one of the men claimed a formation, whereas the other one denied having made that particular one. After a while, Doug and Dave started contradicting themselves and each other; they had to change some of their statements. Their story lost total credibility, but the strangest thing was that the world had already fully accepted their claim: crop circles were made by man; they had all been made by two British old men...
After Doug and Dave came
Team Satan: three men from London who claim to be artists. In the course
of years they changed their name into The Circle Makers. However, I will
always refer to them as Team Satan, for their claims too are based on
I am interviewing Team Satan (right), while researchers
listen and shoot film (1998)
When I interviewed them in 1998 for the
production of the video documentary Crop
Circles, The Research ,
the 'leading man' of the group (John Lundberg) made a mistake. He had
told me earlier that they never reveal which formations they make, since
that would damage the magic of the phenomenon, something they wouldn't
want to do. Then he told me about a particular shape they had designed
once. They had it all drawn out and planned to put it into a field somewhere.
But when they arrived at the field they had chosen, the formation - exactly
the same shape - was already lying there! This was a remarkable story;
it indicated the presence of and interaction with the genuine Circle Makers!
But when I asked him what formation he was referring to, he answered he
couldn't tell "because he didn't want to damage the magic of the phenomenon".
I pointed out that this could not be the case. After all, according to
his own statement he didn't make that formation, so he could relax and
just tell me. It became quiet. After a while he just smiled...
In 1998 Team Satan was hired
to push the shape of a car into the crop, for a commercial of Mitsubishi.
The piece of crop that would be flattened was bought from the farmer (Tim
Carson, owner of the famous East Field at Alton Barnes) and the three
men went to work, in broad daylight. And that was very interesting, because
now we could finally see just how capable they were. Well, it was a learning
experience, for both parties... First of all, they hammered posts into
the ground to mark certain spots in the field. This of course created
holes in the ground (which you don't find in authentic formations) and
it produced a lot of noise. Strange, for 'professionals' who claim to
work without a sound... Furthermore they couldn't agree on many things,
whereas teamwork should be absolutely indispensable to perform such a
task professionally. They argued about how to hold the measuring tape,
about who was supposed to stand where, about many issues one might expect
a professional team to perform blindly. Finally, they needed no less than
14 hours to put the car into the field, under these ideal circumstances
(broad daylight and permission of the farmer). Fourteen hours was far
too much, since the available number of hours of darkness in summertime
is no more than five...
The Mitsubishi commercial after 14 hours in broad daylight...
Another thing that caught my attention
was that these men are extremely communicative! I am a professional communication
consultant and I can assure you that these men are professionals. They
are extremely well trained, eloquent, and (apart from the example mentioned
above) intelligent. I don't often meet artists like that. Most artists
are so focused on their creations, that they neglect their communicative
skills. Team Satan is a huge exception. Take a look at their website:
it's far too smooth! I still wonder if these men were trained by the government
in order to bring disinformation into the world, thus aiming to keep the
majority of the public away from the crop circles. They are simply too
well trained, too smooth and too cunning to be just some jokers from London...

Janet Ossebaard is a professional crop circle scientist and researcher that co-produced three video documentaries with Bert Jansess. In 1996 "Crop Circles, What On Earth Is Going On?" appeared. In 1998 "Crop Circles, The Research" (with an update in 2000), and in 2001 "Contact" was launched, which won an EBE-Award as best ufo-related video documentary during the conference and film festival at Laughlin, Nevada (USA).
She also participated in the production of "The Silbury Hole Enigma" (2001), another video documentary of Bert Janssen. In the summer of 2002, she participated in a research project set up by the University of Utrecht (the Netherlands), examining newly formed crop formations by means of infra-red thermografy. In the same year, she won the Frontier Award - together with fellow researcher Bert Janssen - for her work in the frontier sciences in the Netherlands. In 2004 she was nominated once again for this award. Furthermore she is an active member of the DCCCS (Dutch Centre for Crop Circle Studies).
