Have the extra-terrestrial crop artists been watching humans on Earth for a long time, since World War II or before?
We can see a close similarity between “foo fighters”, as photographed extensively near military aircraft during World War II, and the “orbs” which are photographed sometimes near modern crop pictures:
This suggests that the extra-terrestrial crop artists were watching humans on Earth for a long time, before “crop circles” began in earnest around 1990:
Dozens of different photographs have been taken of these small, metallic orbs which appear sometimes near new crop pictures. Three photographs shown above come from East Field 2007, Wiltshire 2009 or Cley Hill 2010. In some cases the “orb” is visible to a human eye, while in other cases it only appears on digital photographs, which sense a broader spectrum of wavelengths than a human eye (100 to 1000 nm versus 400 to 700 nm).
The “metallic orbs” appear in close detail like a “cricket ball”, with a “seam” going around their largest circumference. They may not be the same as “balls of light” which have been photographed by other observers. The last (brown) photo shown above came directly from the camera of a close friend (S.A.), with no possible chance of subsequent manipulation.
In summary, the small UFOs seen sometimes near modern crop pictures are: (i) physically real, (ii) resemble “foo fighters” from World War II, and (iii) not consistent with a rope-and-boards explanation for how modern crop circles are actually formed.
