Obituary Janet Ossebaard 1967-2023

Janet 2002

Most of us will know Janet Ossebaard. Famous for her crop circle books, talks and trips. She made knowledge about crop circles accessible to a large audience. Her slightly over the top demeanor was attractive to everyone and she could get away with practically everything. We remember a talk at the Glastonbury Symposium years ago. As she went well over time and the hosts were trying to make her wrap it up, the audience shouted: “Let her go on, we will give up our lunch break!”. Janet could make the audience laugh as if she were a stand up comedian and they would still go home having learned something. She made us laugh so much, there is a pit in our dining room table as a reminder of one of the great nights we shared with her. Together we managed to manifest a crop circle but we failed to move an object with our minds.

Ever since visiting her first crop circle, persuaded by her then partner Bert Janssen, crop circles were her life for over 20 years. She was one of the first croppies to make a living just from the crop circles and one of the few to be successful at it. She ran the Dutch Centre for Crop Circle Studies for about 10 years and a crop circle information/research Centre and shop in Deventer (NL) for about 3 years. Meanwhile she owned a crop circle dedicated web shop, organized crop circle trips to the UK, gave many crop circle lectures and experience days, even a 3 day crop circle retreat. If you were lucky enough to be in her company while circle chasing, you will have many fond memories. Janet was so connected to the crop circle phenomenon, she met the circle makers spiritually. She felt them going right through her body. Janet’s name is often mentioned in many crop circle conversations and lectures. Always with a smile. 

The last few years Janet dedicated her life to unveiling the truth about the powers that be. The Fall Cabal videos have been streamed millions of times the world over. The zoom sessions which covered the alternative opinion on the corona-pandemic, Q-Anon, Donald Trump and satanic child abuse were very successful as well with hundreds of participants each time. Janet was very eager to collect all this knowledge and even more eager to put it out there. For that reason she had to move to Spain and live in various remote rural areas so as not to be found.

Janet Ossebaard was a free spirit. A modern day Joan of Arc (a gift from God). A heroin in the eyes of many many people. To us a close and dear friend since 1995 that will be dearly missed.

Last summer i was toying with the idea of doing a close encounters of the third kind upward light display in the evening after dark to attract UAP light orb CC creators over the English Channel near to Dartmouth on Saturday 13th July 2024.  I placed a request with the girls of the Light Llwyth above on the 3rd of July 23  if they would be interested in doing a flyby aerial display in response if i got a group together to do a wrap around light display at the Day Mark on Portal Down. i haven't had a good response from the CE5 lot so I was wondering if the Croppies would be interested in helping with the display that the girls above approved on 25th July 23, center spot being within the Day Mark itself, i have 12 people so far but need another 16 people to hold a torch each and point it upwards, some on spot, some on wide angle, central white, then 9 UV spot, 9 red/white flashing light and 9 red wide angle on the outer edge, i suppose i could plant the torches into the field and hope that they don't fall over but willing humans would be better.  we plan to wander down there about 10pm that night as we of the Red Llwyth are getting pissed up not too far away and it's within stagger range.  The design that they approved is this and getting the torches from Amazon.

Any volunteers and assistance would be most appreciated, Warm Regards

We have to announce sad news that Graham Tucker died July 16th 2023. We have known Graham and Janet for many years in the crop circle community. We often shared moments together inside crop circles and attending conferences. We send our condolences to Janet and family. Another person we will sadly miss!

Graham Tucker RIP
Sadly, we have another passing to report. Several of you will remember Graham Tucker, one of Kent's key crop circle researchers for many years, whose death we were very sorry to hear of this week. Graham and his wife Janet attended several Glastonbury Symposiums over the years and were familiar faces on the croppie 'scene'. Graham was a stolid, reliable circle researcher, who never lost his faith in a mysterious phenomenon and helped set up a number of fascinating experiments and interactive 'communication' attempts. He will be missed and we send our sincerest condolences to Janet, who kindly let us know about Graham. His funeral will be held at Medway Crematorium at 12pm on August 9th, for anyone who would like to attend.

Book Review

The Great Turning – Crop Circles and their Message to Humanity

By Michael Green Edited by Mary Coales 

Published by: The Squeeze Press an Imprint of Wooden Books

ISBN: 9781906069278

Publication Date: 1st July 2023 Price: £19.95

386 pages, lavishly illustrated throughout with colour photographs and diagrams. 

Michael Green (1931 - 2018) was an architectural historian and Inspector of Ancient Monuments with deep knowledge of Ancient Wisdom and its symbols who began studying crop circles in 1989. In 1990 he co-founded the Centre for Crop Circle Studies (CCCS) to scientifically record the phenomenon, study it and distinguish genuine formations from hoaxes. 

During the 1990s, Michael wrote a considerable number of articles for both The Circular and The Cereologist magazines laying out his own personal views and theosophical beliefs on the crop circle phenomena and what it meant to humanity. These articles have now been expanded considerably, added to and skilfully woven together to produce this detailed, lavishly illustrated and impeccably sourced tome. 

The book’s emphasis is not crop circles per se but is instead very much about Michael’s interpretation of some of them, using them to validate his beliefs on Ancient Wisdom and the Human Monad. As Michael’s wife Christine sums up perfectly, “this book is about Michael’s theophanic view of the Universe, the nature of Deity, the structure of the Cosmos, and the relationship between Deity and man”. 

Michael draws extensively on paranormal sources in his book, using channelled information from the likes of Alice Bailey (channelling Djwhal Khul), Paul Bura (Jeuz) and Isabelle Kingston (Archangel Michael). This will not suit many who may be hoping for a fully scientific viewpoint but will resonate with others who look for a more esoteric explanation to life, the universe and everything.

The Great Turning is, without doubt, an exceptional body of work representing Michael’s life-time study. Mary Coales has done an exceptional job editing it.

Field Assessment on Weir Farm 2

First impression on approach was a formation in a discreet location tucked away in the corner of a barley field. From a frequently used private farm track adjacent to the event I could not see any evidence of verge disturbance, tyre tracks, parked vehicles or new pedestrian entry points from track to tramlines. At obvious points of potential entry at the end of the tram line at the edge of the field there was very little evidence of foot tread or damage to barley stalks in the tram lines or made pathways through the crop. The soil on the tramlines looked like it had one or maybe two previous visitors but few more.

Could these new monoliths be linked to the crop circles? 

  It has all happened rather quickly, over the last week or so. Strange pillar-like monolithic structures have been popping up on a global basis. The first was in the very remote Utah desert then California. Romania and Columbia followed. Today we had three more published on the media, one on the Isle of Wight this quite close to 'crop circle country'....

 A sensible guide.

"Although I have now had to personally accept that the vast majority of CFs are mysterious in origin based on the burden of clear and obvious evidence, as a matter of course I will always look out for certain features that add to the building probability data. Within the (new 2nd gen) G2 group of visiting the population, many who have little or no first-hand experience there will be some dis-information/media promoted, 'human-made' issues to a greater or lesser degree still lingering in their minds....."

Michael Glickman


It is with great sadness that we write to let you know that Michael Glickman passed away on 1st May  peacefully at home with his sons by his side. We were privileged to call him our friend and so grateful for the wisdom he shared so passionately with the world. Many of you will remember him from our teatime visits to his back deck and his wonderful crop circle presentations at the Summer Lectures in Devizes or from his presentations at our Earth Spirit Conference in Vermont. The world has lost a legend... May he be united with the circle makers... Godspeed Michael.   Glenn & Cameron Broughton

.On a personal note  Michael and myself have known each other since 1996 and I often visited him at his home in Wiltshire.  Many times we disagree regarding the crop circles and I remembered warning him about certain matters. It was only in his later life he came to understand what I was observing in the Crop Circle Community. My last conversation with Michael was on the phone late last  year and he wanted to tell me he was moving back to London with his family due to health matters. I will always miss his next phone call.  Mark Fussell

Crop Circle Harmony at Danebury Hill 2019

In this video you will find the EMPIRICAL EVIDENCE showing most crop circles are in fact of a genuinely mysterious nature. Researcher PAUL JACOBS and the CORE GROUP INITIATIVE work tirelessly each year cooperating with farmers on location for weeks on end in the summer months. They facilitate legitimate access to thousands of crop circle visitors by managing the field for the farmer; last season 2019 it was at Danebury Hill fort in Hampshire.

“Encouragingly Positive Media Report...at Last!

"What a marvellous piece of public relations. Not only did it give a fair and accurate account of what I actually said to the reporter but also it shone me in a rather glamorous light. Evidently, I am now an expert, whatever that is! Not a word I would normally associate with my self, especially in this subject where all is so hard to qualify and define. Anyway, I took it as a compliment. I am very keen to connect with local populations when I am on location with a crop formation. It is the locality who will judge and ultimately influence popular opinion one way or another, making it easier working with the farmers. To win them over can only register well if this subject is to move forward in a meaningful way.  Saying again; the CGI concept and daily workings need to be promoted by as many as possible, which really does include places like info centres and websites. Thank for reading".

"Despite repeated attempts to inform and prompt the Dutch attended ( so-called Access ) Information Centre in Wiltshire the people that run it seem reluctant to flag up the Danesbury Hillfort crop formation as OPEN TO VISITORS on their site. This is odd as they claim to be an 'Information and access' resource. Please ask them why they do not update. CGI (coregroupinitiative.com) have been successfully managing this formation since Wednesday, working cooperatively with the farmer. The donation is £3 per adult with young people under 16 free are asked. This is the only CC in the country that has approved access so it is extremely strange that this place does not promote and make the public aware. My view is that you can only qualify to be an Information Centre if you provide unto the minute and quality accurate information. Just selling books and merchandise is not good enough. Thanks for reading.

Before the 2019 Season Kicks of Fully...an overall  synopsis for perspective.

During this season as with any other we will be challenged by mis/dis reporting and with those who wish to distort the facts, many times for reasons of base self promotion. This page should help to clarify, especially to those relatively new to this overwhelmingly complex and confounding subject. Sometimes getting back to basics for both experienced and beginners alike can add clarity and refreshed perspective. As the season wears on we often get all tangled up in controversy and local issues that can distract: it is easy to forget the bigger picture. And so here I offer some basics with answers/explanations as best as I can determine from my now eleven years of treading the fields and pondering the subject."

The Energies of Crop Circles

The Energies of Crop Circles – The Science and Power of a Mysterious Intelligence is now available.

A 256 page scientific investigation of the healing and energetic effects of crop circles In 1990 while studying the energetics of a crop circle, Lucy Pringle experienced a miraculous healing of a severe shoulder injury. Inspired, she expanded her research to investigate the physical, psychological, and energetic effects of these mysterious formations on people as well as on animals. In this book, alongside her stunning full-colour aerial photographs of crop circles, Pringle shares the results of her research, including anecdotes from an 800-person questionnaire study, in combination with detailed scientific explanations by aerospace engineer and fellow crop circle researcher James Lyons. The authors discuss case histories of healing, from temporary respite from arthritis, Reynaud’s, and Parkinson’s, to the permanent cure of muscle strains and chronic pain, to emotional healing and feelings of peace and happiness. They explore the relationship of crop circle formations and consciousness, highlighting “intention” as a key factor in crop circle manifestation. Pringle describes the wide range of physiological effects–both positive and negative–caused by the frequencies in crop circles and shows how the negative symptoms may possibly be caused by heavy use of pesticides. Drawing on the science behind the formation of the Aurora Borealis, or Northern Lights, the authors explain how the same electromagnetic waves that produce these lights in the sky also interact with the Earth’s magnetic field and ley lines to produce geometric-energetic patterns in fields–crop circles–akin to the cymatic patterns of sand on a vibrating drum surface. They reveal dowsing as a way to identify underlying sacred geometry within a field and explain how healing arises as the result of communication with the self-organizing energy field of a crop circle. With the first recorded appearance of a crop circle formation more than 4,000 years ago, crop circles are an ancient part of Earth’s and humanity’s intertwined history that we are only beginning to understand.




Prof. Jerry Kroth analyzes some of the most intricate, complex and impossible crop circles with the ever-present question, “Is it really possible these pictograms are extraterrestrial communications which we have been ignoring?” 

Decoding these circles suggests they are warning humankind about nuclear meltdowns, climate change, toxins we have barely heard of, as well as directing our attention to a deeper understanding of physics, materials science, and molecular biology. In consultation with scientists from Israel to Japan Dr. Kroth developed and decoded 40 of the most mysterious crop circles which have ever appeared.. From magnetars,  hypernovae, and colliding neutron stars, to he global decline male sperm counts,  or the promises of graphene, Messages from the gods is an enormously exciting scientific journey. 

The Video 

Jerry Kroth, Ph.D. wonders if all crop circles may not be human fakes and counterfeits after all. He analyzes three mysterious, intricate, and amazing pictograms in this video and astonishes the viewer with the prospect that these actually may be extraterrestrial communications which we have been taught to ignore and disregard. Disinformation propaganda through tricksters-hoaxer-croppies has successfully dissuaded serious minded scientists, academics, and lay persons from taking any of this seriously.  Dr. Kroth takes it seriously. And the results are absolutely mind-boggling. 

The talk is from his 2019 book, Messages from the gods: a scientific exposition on the extraterrestrial origin of crop circles where over 40 mysterious crop circles are decoded not without the aid and assistance of more than 20 scientists from Israel to Japan.


Season of Smiles 2: A Crop Circle Video.

"I originally released this video at the end of last season but I feel it useful, especially at this time of anticipation, to revisit it now, subsequent to my recent research article on 'Energy Leak'. Also, it gives rare public visitor feedback on the subject as opposed to mere questions posed and unanswered and aerial footage which seems to have been mostly the norm for years. Hitherto this space has usually been the domain of  'wise experts' but I feel a new approach could now evolve. I believe there is real value in hearing how visitors, many of whom are non associated observers feel about their crop formation experience. To somehow interest and educate non enthusiasts in this subject, as I attempted to do recently at Marlborough College, has obviously got to be the only way towards more general acceptance".

Additional Evidence to Support 'Energy Leak' Hypothesis.

 "On the 8th of July 2017 we had a crop formation under Hackpen Hill, near Broad Hinton, Wiltshire. Over the years this area, indeed this field has been popular with events and like other years I found myself, together with the CGI org. working with farmer James Hussey again  facilitating access for people and raising funds for the 'Brighter Futures' cancer facility  in Swindon. Beforehand we had been working with a farmer down in Dorset doing likewise with the 'Tree of Life' CF at Target Wood.  


One thing that immediately struck me about this new CF at Hackpen Hill were the markings on the field. Some people quickly jumped to the idea that..."

As expected the sceptics were forecasting doom and gloom in 2018 with no crop circles but just as predictably they were wrong!!! Surely 2018 must have been one of the longest winters ever?

Season of Smiles:2 A Crop Circle Adventure


A brief personal tribute to Roy T. Dutton, from David Cayton, August 2018.

I first got to know Roy while we were both working at British Aerospace, Woodford during the mid 1990’s. We both worked in different Departments, I in the Design Engineering Laboratories, Roy initially in the Hawker Siddeley Dynamics branch of the Company. After Dynamics relocated to BAe Hatfield, Roy remained at Woodford and worked in Wind Tunnels and’ Special Projects’ Dept.....a bit hush, hush! 

While I already had some interest in ufo’s from my previous RAF Service, Roy was instrumental in getting me more seriously active in both UFO’s and the crop circle phenomena. He persuaded me to join BUFORA and the Centre for Crop Circle Studies (CCCS). His numerous Circle photos which he passed around our shared Canteen lunch table really sparked my enthusiasm and keenness to set foot inside a crop formation! This resulted in my 20 years of frequent visits to the fields of Wiltshire, with my good friend and co researcher, Robert Hulse. We are eternally grateful to Roy for setting us on our voyages’ of discovery!  It was Roy who also first introduced me to Robert and others with a shared interest!

 Roy was a true mechanical engineer ‘boffin’ and was keen to understand what the mysterious unknown energy was to create the crop plant swirled circles?  He designed and built a working model to demonstrate how the plant stems were softly laid down, sweeping incrementally around in curves, without physical damage in the process! He had liaised with an Italian professor on a possible energy source and they came up with a type of focussed gravitational microwave?

In my book, Roy was one of the original crop circle pioneers and he never gave up trying to find the correct scientific cause for the non mechanical planked formations. He had presented a number of lectures on the subject over the years, including to the Royal Aeronautical Society (Roy was a Fellow of the RAes) on his pet theory (developed over much of his life) describing how he believed intelligently controlled solid craft could navigate to enter and exit our earthly orbit on certain timed tracks!

Vivien and I got to know Roy well, along with his late wife, Marion and they are sorely missed.

We extend our sincere condolences to Roy’s son and family.

The funeral will be held at Torquay crematorium on Thursday 23 August 2018 at noon.

Could crop circle aliens be giving backing to Brighter Futures bid?

A reminder to anyone in Wiltshire wishing to visit a crop circle over this weekend, and the coming week, that you can still visit the intriguing crop circle below the Hackpen White Horse, near Avebury, Wiltshire, UK. The circle is open from 9am till 9pm and you are asked to donate £3 to the local 'Brighter Futures' charity appeal. Check out this recent news!! Paul Jacobs with CGI and the farmers James Hussey and David White have raised more than £5000 this season for the 'Brighter Futures' radiotherapy appeal that will bring medical relief to thousands of people when the over all target is reached. Over the past few years over £20,000 has been raised for this charity from the crop circles around Hackpen Hill, Wiltshire, UK. Cat Newman, head of fundraising at Brighter Futures, thanked James and Paul for their support and stated - “It’s been quite mind-blowing. I love the idea that, if it’s aliens, we’ve got their support. The radiotherapy appeal is even bigger than international, it’s intergalactic.” Read more on this link: www.swindonadvertiser.co.uk

Hackpen Abuse

9.7.18  Important message for all Dutch CF visitors. 

"Last evening I was verbally abused and intimidated at the gate by a number of Dutch visitors led by a well known female Dutch crop circle group leader. This is the worst trouble I've had here in nearly a month. After learning from some of the group (who were well behaved) that they had not been informed regards times of opening (Question: is not that the role and duty of a group leader?) what CGI are doing and the general MO of events at Hackpen Hill by CGI, I informed them that the circles here are open from 9am until 9pm (a long day!) This is very odd as these people are closely associated with the alleged Dutch MK so-called 'Information Centre' , so not to be aware of these basic facts would seem highly improbable. However, this was met with hostility and challenge and at one point threatened to invade my personal space and referencing my wife in an intimidating way. This I will NOT tolerate. Interrupting my evening meal by a determined looking group marching towards me, the group leader angrily and rudely questioned our (CGI and farmer decision) right to impose these time restrictions. "Who decides these times?" The person in question has been bringing groups to the UK for many years and taking them into fields without permission so obviously wishes not to show respect and change. She did not wish me to tell her group, or for them to read about our CGI work, cropcircleconnector.com   or coregroupinitiative.com   for information for some reason. ...wished to keep all in the dark seemingly to control the situation, which is unrealistic and naive but at the same time claiming ignorance regards opening times etc."

"We here at CGI are trying to do something to calm social tensions in the UK, making it possible for people to happily visit without trouble and help the cancer charity. I feel people such as this female Dutch group leader need to be checked, perhaps by their own nationals as I feel we do not deserve to be treated in such an aggressive and hostile way for no good reason. This task is demanding enough as it is without this sort of nonsense. I would suggest that if this person, who drives a distinctive orange and yellow van, is not happy with how we conduct ourselves in the UK, that she concentrates her activities around her own home country and not come to this country and upset us. She is no longer welcome here and I would certainly NOT recommended her as a group leader as she is clearly NOT paying attention , someone who charges people a lot of money to visit circles with her. I intend to inform farmers to keep a look out for this woman...her behaviour would not be acceptable to any reasonable person. I will not be abused in this way. Dutch people , please tell her to behave and leave me alone if you know her. Thank you."

Cross-referencing and Probability in Assessment.

 Indisputable emirical proof is here. This should, in theory, end the mysterious/non mysterious debate, for rationalists at least, for ever. Ask a qualified botanist about the laws of phototropism. Ask a qualified surveyor (MRICS) about TST and its role in design layout.  By identifying and then referencing recurring features in 'day one bent node CFs', those that are indisputably mysterious in origin, we can reasonably apply those  observations to other events. So, what do we know?

Reflections on 2017 Season.

Bringing crop formation events into the 21st century!

The two week Dorset event was extremely reassuring as this was farmer referred...a leap forward in PR terms. After harvest I received a farmer inquiry asking if we will be coming back next year! Incredible! This farmer cooperation was 100% and the farmer himself, a delight to work with. We were made to feel really welcome and am almost beginning to feel accepted as part of that local Dorset community now.

A Brief Reminder Before the 2018 Season Begins.

 "This is the most comprehensive, compelling and objective analysis of the Ansty 2016 event that exists on the net and should answer so many of the questions/posts I have read. It is based on facts as opposed to relying on wild exotic theory or anecdotal/ here-say 'reports'. IOWs..."He said, she said...I know the people that did it" type of nonsense etc. This report would be convincing enough in a court of law so it should satisfy most sensible queries and therefore should be taken very seriously".

Social Comment...mainly for the young and the newcomers.


"The 'crop pattern interface' will be Man's ultimate challenge over time. However, that is not to say we should delay further acquaintance with the subject right now. To come to terms with and integrate this subject into modern society will be a turning point...no question and I suspect it will be far more accepted within the next generation, our more open-minded youngsters."

Modern crop pictures suggest a new and improved method for ion propulsion through space, using a two-stroke, “in-out”, AC homopolar device, which scientists at NASA or universities worldwide seem not to have considered before

Simply because... CGI was a much needed, first and meaningful step towards crop formation/community integration...a sort of 'give peace a chance' opportunity. It was something that was farmer friendly, non-commercial and not an outright antagonistic 'wind-up' to that community. We've had conferences, talk shows....

Three “seeing eye” crop pictures from Nettle Hill on August 16, 2014, Woodway Bridge on August 24, 2016, or Monarch’s Way on August 8, 2017, all show similar themes of “humans on Earth seeing a metaphorical serpent in the sky”, or alternatively a “serpent seeing humans here on Earth”

2017...Season of Smiles.

Paul Jacobs (CGI)

Paul Jacobs with CGI posts us this great news regarding their crop circle charity fund raising project with the farmers since 2012. - "Here is the certificate from Brighter Futures for total sum raised by CGI to end of season 2017. - £15,969 - The sum raised for BF at Dorset 'Tree of Life' event was £524 and total sum raised at the Hackpen Hill event was £2339. The total sums raised by CGI for all charities and farmer contributions over the last 5 years is now a healthy £25,323. - This formulation has clearly been a major success and in theory will continue to be so, gathering momentum in different ways in years to come.': https://www.coregroupinitiative.com/home

"It's not quite so bewilderingly, mind bogglingly incomprehensible as you may think...LOL...please read on".

Sad news regarding the once famous Barge Inn which no longer has its campsite and
looks like their are now major food and staffing problems.
A good idea to give The Barge Inn a wide berth this year I am sorry to point out.
Check the latest reviews, the one yesterday by Skyjumper is absolutely horrendous!!!!

Target Wood, nr Badbury Rings, Dorset. Reported 16th June

Great News! CGI  (Core Group Initiative) with Paul Jacobs are to administer, on behalf of the farmer, the crop circle at Target Wood, near Badbury Rings, Dorset, UK. Reported on the 17th of June , 2017. The circle will be administered from 9am to 9pm. An entrance charge is asked for by the farmer of £3 which will go to the Brighter Futures and the local Community Hall Project charities with a small amount going to the farmer to compensate for the loss of his crop. This is the only crop circle that can be legally visited.  More information with the map ref (seen on top of webpage).

Response to Email from Distressed Individual.

"Today I received an email from someone who did not give their name and on the surface appeared to be a very frightened and distressed young man. I am approaching this from a viewpoint that very likely there are many more such people, especially young, vulnerable and uninformed that are trying to make sense of the phenomenon. Not only do we need to try and make sense of the world as a whole (very hard right now) but also this subject that runs parallel, that in truth no one is willing or able to address beyond a preoccupation with the obvious."

Watch out for Debunkers!


"If you plan on visiting crop formation country in Wiltshire this season this is important information for you especially if you are less experienced or unacquainted with the on-the-ground 'scene'. The debunkers will spot you and see you as a vulnerable easy target and attempt to manipulate you with their charms. A raised awareness is invaluable. Forewarned is forearmed".

Probability Anomaly’…a very strong   indicator.

 "This is the so called' Galaxy' formation of 2001 on Milk Hill. It is the most extreme example I can think of to illustrate probability. It happened overnight in bad weather and is composed of no less than 409 separate circles. How probable would it be do you think that this event is mysterious in origin? Each circle would have to take around 45 seconds to construct given the restricted time frame in mid summer. Highly probable I would say!"

Paul Jacobs (CGI)

Sensible Education...A Major Priority.

"It's a staggering fact that ongoing 'grass roots' education on this subject is almost non existent apart from Core Group Initiative (CGI) web site pages. Other information sharing has been limited to one or two local Wiltshire based formal 'talks' events which can in truth often include subject matter so exotic, complicated or specialist (often off topic)it is hard for most people to gain much benefit from".

A Disturbing Report

By The Crop Circle Connector Team

Something To Look Out For!


"As we eagerly await the first CF in barley, which now shouldn't be too long I hope, I would draw your attention once again to something I call 'Energy Leak' which falls into the realms of a probability anomaly. I identified this feature back in 2009 but strangely it still does not seem to be that well registered, even in the minds of seasoned crop-watchers, so this is just a reminder.  I would also urge all drone pilots to search and record such features when photographing new crop events as I regard this feature as very helpful and very strong indicator of mysterious activity as you will read in this article."

Paul Jacobs (CGI)

Remember...This Just Simply Cannot Be Argued With!


"It is highly likely that this 2017 season will be no different from previous in terms of the usual quarrels, confusion and misunderstandings. This is a result of deliberate disinformation campaigns and lack of sound, understandable pragmatic and objective information. In this regard I would like to draw people's attention once again, before it all kicks off big time and remind readers of the hard, stark reality of practical construction when it comes to alleged human involved crop formation construction (or any other major, precise or complex construction.) Please read carefully and please remember such when all the silly nonsense stories start to appear, usually promoted by 'wise-men' of 'great authority' (LOL) who expect us to meekly believe what they say without question and always unsubstantiated. The example here, of Ansty last year is a very good one indeed".

A Taste of Things to Come?

Bridging the gap...it's up to us! This video example shows something which has been a rare event over the years. Not often will you hear a farmer and a CF advocate being recorded in this harmonising manner. Watch this video and see what you think.
