Major New Formation Close to Stonehenge. Wiltshire Again!

Location -  West Amesbury, nr Stonhenge, Wiltshire.
Stonehenge can be seen in the didtance.

A report came in on the 24th of June of a major new formation close to Stonehenge. When we fly to that area, we have to deal with a military zone called Boscome Down. This is a aircraft testing site, so allowing people to go into the zone to take photographs can be tricky, and to be honest they don’t really like it.
Boscombe Down has been associated with rumours concerning U.S. black projects. An incident is reported to have occurred there on 26 September 1994, although evidence is scarce, and both the British and American Governments have refused to comment on it.
In October 2007 it was announced that RAF Boscombe Down would become a Quick Reaction Alert (QRA) airfield from early 2008, offering round-the-clock fighter coverage for the South and South West of UK airspace.
We were given permission to enter the zone when we called ahead of our flight, but when we got into the air; Boscombe Down decided to keep us waiting as they were testing a new UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle) so we were lucky to even get into the airspace. Unfortunately the wait cost us a small fortune as we were hanging around for ages.
The weather was also tricky as the cloud was building, so we had to wait for gaps to do the photography. But eventually we got the job done. Here are a few photos from the flight.

It seems the crop circles are coming home to Wiltshire again. So we have had several in the county this year.
West Amesbury Formation, Overhead Shot.

Location -  West Amesbury, nr Stonhenge, Wiltshire.

A striking formation which is in wheat, and is about 400ft across. The crop was starting to recover, so we would guess it had been there for at least a day.

More information about this crop formation will be forthcoming later. It will make a great drawing for Karen, and even a great tattoo for those who are looking for a original design.
Urgent Appeal For Donations. Can you Help. Funds are Very Low.

To put it simply, we now need your help to continue to record the crop circles. Can you help? To make a donation click below on Help, or click the link below. This will take you to our website where you can make a donation to help us continue to do what we do.

The crop circles are coming thick and fast, and we need your support to help us record the crop circles in the UK.

Sunday 2nd August 2015 – Evening Conference Dinner

The Summer Crop Circle Lectures is the world’s leading crop circle conference. Researchers and enthusiasts gather together from around the globe each summer to present and share new ideas, experiences and research into this enigmatic phenomenon. Our programme combines top national and international speakers, along with exciting newcomers to provide a broad collection of ideas and thinking on the subject. Above all, the weekend is a celebration of the inspiration and influence these magnificent forms have had on our culture and it is an opportunity to meet new people and network with like-minded souls. Our conference is firmly centred around the crop circles, but that focus should not be confused with a narrowness of vision. The circles are considered alongside many other related subjects and disciplines, which makes for a stimulating, vibrant and wide-ranging programme.

Our venue has full disabled access and we provide light refreshments on site. We will also have a collection of trade stands, including all the latest crop circle photographs, films and books for sale. Don’t forget your pen for a signed copy!

We look forward to welcoming you to our event…

The Crop Circle Summer Lectures - Geometry Workshop. Friday 31st July 2015.
Friday Evening Geometry Workshop. Learn about number, proportion and meaning. Step by Step drawing instructions and all equipment provided.

Michael Glickman & Karen Alexander will be your guides through the realms of sacred geometry and drawing the crop circle forms. Michael has long been acknowledged as one of the foremost authorities on Crop Circle Geometry and Karen Alexander is well known for her beautiful drawings of the crop formations. Together they make a formidable team!

Explore the numbers, ratios and proportions found in the crop circle designs and then try your hand at drawing some crop circle patterns! This fascinating workshop will be a hands-on experience, with plenty of opportunity to try exercises with compass and straight edge - to feel (in your hands) the way the crop circle patterns come together. Don't worry if you are a novice, there will be plenty of help on hand and we will provide all your drawing equipment!

The workshop is to be led by circles researchers Michael Glickman and Karen Alexander who bring their considerable experience in this field to the event.

This is always a hugely popular workshop so please book early, limited places are available!

The workshop will be held in the Assembly Room on the upper floor of the Town Hall and will run from 6.30pm - 8.30pm.

Please Support Us! How you Can Help...
Please help us raise money for our flights to record the crop circles in the UK...
We have always been committed to providing the best quality crop circle photography anywhere. Not only as a record of the phenomenon as it unfolds, but also as a legacy for future generations.  High quality images are essential for the future and not only will hold more information, but will also show the magnificence of the crop circles in the landscape and hopefully record the majesty and beauty of the circles for generations who were not there to witness them first hand.
The cost of obtaining our high quality images each year is huge (running in to thousands of pounds). We hire a small helicopter and use high-end digital SLRs to record the images. While it is true that there are cheaper methods for photographing the circles, there is a more damaging cost to the quality of pictures possible using there methods (drones etc.) where using expensive digital cameras would not be practical or possible.
Because of our commitment to quality and our awareness of costs, we regularly review our practices and at the moment (as of 2015) we remain convinced that our current operating methods allow us to get the best images possible.
It is through the sales of our year books, photos and other merchandise that meeting the cost of our photography possible.
We also reply on our donors who very kindly help top up our flight fund each year.
We never take any of our supporters for granted and are constantly humbled and amazed at their generosity. Every sale and every donation, no matter how humble counts, and helps us continue to record this beautiful phenomenon.
