 Watergate Beach, Cornwall, UK. Reported 8th December 2013

I came across this photo of an intriguing and intricate sand circle at Watergate Beach, Cornwall, UK, seen on December the 8th, 2013. Karen who photographed the circle, made this comment - 'A real gem of a find .' - Who created it is so far unknown to us. Karen thought it might be the Cornish sand artist Tony Plant but he does not know who did it. Information from the 'Recent Posts by Others' section on FACEBOOK

What Are These Mysterious Patterns?

“This sand pattern (spiral) seems to show an astronomical theme,
with some kind of binary computer code in its largest circles.”

“The Albuquerque 8-ring pattern appeared to be sustained
in dust by an electrostatic charge on the window.”

December 23, 2013 Watergate Bay Beach, Newquay, Cornwall, U. K. and Albuquerque, New Mexico - On the southwestern coast of Cornwall at a small beach community called Newquay, there were once up to fifteen pre-historic barrows known as The Barrowfields. But now only a few remain from burials 3,500 years ago. The first settlements were Iron Age hill forts and iron mines.

Newquay, Watergate Bay Beach, Cornwall County, U. K., has two miles of sand
along the Celtic Sea in south-western British Isles.  

December 8, 2013 - Beach Sand Spiral Mystery
Watergate Beach, Cornwall, U. K.

On December 8, 2013, at the seaside town of Watergate Bay Beach in Newquay, Cornwall County, United Kingdom, a woman named Karen saw an intricate spiral in the beach sand, photographed it and put it on Facebook. At first, Karen thought the creator of the pattern was Cornish sand artist Tony Plant, but when he was asked, he said he did not know who made the pattern.

The next day on December 9, 2013, retired geneticist known as Red Collie emailed me that his sand pattern was “binary ASCII code with unusual formatting” and he was trying to crack the message. Red Collie also posted on the Facebook page of Crop Circles-UFOs-Ancient Mysteries-Scientific Speculations: “This one is interesting for two reasons: first, it is based on a spiral, not concentric circles; and thus more difficult to lay down. Secondly, this sand pattern (spiral) seems to show an astronomical theme, with some kind of binary computer code in its largest circles. A nice puzzle, will try to solve it today before packing for Perth in a few hours.”

[ Editor's Note: Binary Code - Wikipedia: A binary code represents text or computer processor instructions using the binary number system's two binary digits, 0 and 1. A binary code assigns a bit string to each symbol or instruction. For example, a binary string of eight binary digits (bits) can represent any of 256 possible values and can therefore correspond to a variety of different symbols, letters or instructions.]

But Red Collie so far has not been able to solve the embedded binary code in the sand pattern and Earthfiles wonders if any viewers can solve this sand spiral puzzle? If so, please email earthfiles@earthfiles.com. All requests for confidentiality are honoured.
