1,033-Foot-Long East Field Wheat
"Happened Within 90 Minutes."
Investigators presented video and eyewitness evidence at July 19,
press conference in Coronation Hall, Alton Barnes, Wiltshire, U.K.
"We were the first to reach the
formation at 4 AM (July 7, 2007) after seeing a very bright
flash of light. The wheat circles were raised 6 inches above
the ground so when we stepped in, the plants crunched under
our feet like we were stepping on delicate crystals."

July 19, 2007/Updated July 27, 2007
Gary King is 41-years-old and
currently a Linguistics student at Cardiff University in Wales, U.
K. Between 1985 and 1987, he had worked as a paralegal in London and
then moved on to form his own private investigator company to trace
missing persons and investigate cases of matrimonial discontent.
He was doing private-I work until July
1997, when he walked into his first English crop formation "and life
has changed considerably ever since," Gary told me in a July 11,
2007, phone interview. He explored Navaho reservations in Arizona,
studied the dance traditions of West Africa, increased his knowledge
of Tai Chi and other martial arts.
He began to realize that he was becoming
increasingly sensitive to the seen and unseen.
"On a couple of occasions, I’ve had
intuitions about crop circles like you would have before a phone
is going to ring. I’ve had intuitions where I’ve gotten up in
the morning and driven down to Wiltshire from my home in Wales
and been lucky enough to walk into a fresh formation."
On Friday, July 6, 2007, he woke up in
his Wales home around 3:30 AM and could not go back to sleep. So, he
got up, had some coffee and toast, watched the sunrise and decided
he had to go to Wiltshire to see if any new crop formations had

"I’ve always looked at the East
Field and went there first, but there was nothing.
Then I went to the Silent Circle Café around mid-day and
somebody mentioned there might be a formation in the East Field,
which we went back to investigate. It was just wind damage at
one end of the field because the night before it had been
When I got there, I met up with some
Dutch researchers from Holland that Janet Ossebaard had
brought over and also some American people that Denni Clark had
as a tour group. We were looking at the wheat and saying it was
just wind damage.
I decided to spend the night on top
of Knap Hill, which is directly in front the East Field.
The center yellow
circle highlights the location of the huge East Field
near Alton Priors, Wiltshire, beneath Knap Hill, highlighted at
not far from Woodborough Hill, highlighted at lower center.
So, that evening I borrowed a
sleeping bag off Charles Mallett at the Silent Circle Café to go
up and do my vigil with Paula.
When we got up there, we met up with
a man called Winston (‘Win’) Keech, who is
a UFO investigator. He had three cameras set up on the hill and
two cameras set up on his car (jeep), which was parked a little
way down on the hill. So, he had five cameras in all.
On top of the hill, he had three cameras set up on tripods. One
was a Sony digital still camera. Another was a Sony VX2100,
which he told me is much more sensitive to light than the human
eye. He also had an image-enhancing camera, which was hooked up
to a JVC D-700 recorder, so that every time he scanned the field
with the image enhancer, it would record what was scanned.
light sensitive professional digital camera
THE TWO CAMERAS IN WIN'S JEEP WERE
They were mounted on the roof. They were infrared and visible
light capacity. One was aimed at East Field and one was aimed at
Milk Hill. And they were hooked up to VHS/VCR video recorders
with 4-hour tapes in them.
WHY WAS MR. KEECH ARMED WITH SO MANY CAMERAS ON THE NIGHT OF
JULY 6 TO JULY 7, 2007?
I met up with him for the first time at the Silent Circle Café
during that day. I put Janet Ossebaard’s Contact video on the TV
set and he saw somebody in the video give a personal testimony
about a ball of light they had seen forming a crop circle some
years ago and Winston Keech got quite excited.
So, I asked him what happened and he
said, ‘Oh, I saw that ball of light make that formation some
years ago, but I didn’t know anyone else had seen it!’
UFO and Crop
Circle Investigator, Yorkshire, England.
Win told me he was going back to
Yorkshire on Monday (July 9) where he lived and he was going to
do one more night watch on Friday to Saturday night (July 6 to
7, 2007). I don’t remember him telling me he was going to be
Knap Hill – but he just said he was going to do another night.
And off he went.
So, on my own when I ended up going to the top of Knap Hill with
Paula, I immediately recognized Win as he came over to us. We
sat down where he had all his cameras set up.
He picked up his image-enhancing
camera and scanned around the East Field which we could see very
clearly through his equipment. We could see the tramlines. He
scanned across (the wheat) and we could see there was a field of
rapeseed next to (the wheat) and we could see the road and
everything very clearly.
That was recorded and indexed at
1:35 AM, Saturday, July 7, 2007.
THERE WAS NOTHING IN THE EAST FIELD AT THAT POINT?
Absolutely nothing, no.

East Field is all the lower blackness in rest of frames.
We all sat there and talked about the universe and all the
possibilities of how wonderful this world could be.
Then, just around 3 AM, (video
analysis shows 3:08 AM - first report was 3:13 AM for flash and
then refined in analysis to 3:08 AM), we saw a great big flash
of light, which I can describe was almost like lightning, but
covered the whole land and was like a big camera flash going off
YOU DID SEE THAT FLASH WITH YOUR HUMAN EYES?
With our eyes, we registered a great big flash, all three of us.
SUCH A BRIGHT FLASH SHOULD HAVE BLASTED OUT THE INFRARED CAMERA.
WHAT DID THE INFRARED CAMERA SHOW?
It was the infrared camera that just shows the EMP pulse."
Producer Joins Winston Keech to Analyze Infrared Camera Video
Terje Toftenes, Video Producer
and Managing Director of Strat and Toftenes in Sandvika,
Norway, got a call on Tuesday, July 10, from a colleague in
Wiltshire telling Terje that not only had one of the biggest crop
formations in Wiltshire history appeared early in the morning on
Saturday, July 7, 2007, in the East Field, but there had been
cameras running when a very bright flash of light was seen from Knap
Hill by three eyewitnesses.
Terje studied electronic engineering in
a Norwegian university and later worked as a TV producer for the
Norwegian Broadcasting Corp. until 1978, then managed an
Audio-Visual Department for a Norwegian public relations company
until 1986. That year, he founded his own video company to produce
industrial films. Today, Strat and Toftenes produces for major
clients in the offshore oil, gas and shipping industries.
But like Gary King, after Terje stepped into his first English crop
formation in 2003, he was haunted by their beauty and the mystery of
what they could mean. He ended up producing a documentary for
Norwegian television that was translated into an English version in
2006 as Crossovers From Another Dimension. (See More Information
He's now working on a follow up documentary.
So when Terje received the phone call about a massive pattern of
circles estimated to cover 96,600 square feet, or 2.25 acres, with
more than 95 circles (final count was 150) in a very strange design
spread across 1,033 feet and 490 feet wide - plus three eyewitnesses
who saw a bright flash of light while light-sensitive and infrared
cameras were set up - he got on the first plane out of Norway and
headed for the East Field.
Terje went over in detail with Winston
Keech what the camera equipment had recorded.
For everyone, it was a sad irony that
the exciting human conversation distracted attention from
periodically videotaping the East Field and changing tapes.
Terje and Winston discovered only two
frames in the infrared camera had recorded an electromagnetic pulse
of some kind that left a 4 milliseconds trace of what Terje thinks
are the trees atop Woodborough Hill in the distance, but nothing
else from the East Field itself.
However, if you start with:
the 1:35 AM Sony light-sensitive
videotape that Win Keech shot while panning the East Field
that was so dark in the frames above
add the three eyewitness naked
eye sighting of the bright, flash of light that came at 3:08
AM, according to the infrared camera

leading up to the last two seconds before the videotape ran
out of that camera right after the 3:08 AM electromagnetic
disturbance (first report was 3:13 AM for flash and then

consider that the trees atop
Woodborough Hill are in 4 milliseconds of a flash in an
otherwise dark frame

and Managing Director, Strat and Toftenes, Sandvika, Norway
"At 1:35 AM, (July 7, 2007) it was
so dark, so totally black in the field. The only thing you can
see from the video recording was the horizon and some lights
from houses in the distance in the horizon. But in the field, it
was totally black and I’ve tried to enhance, or amplify, the
video frames. But all I get is recording noise from the
YOUR IMPLICATION IS THAT IF THERE HAD BEEN ANYBODY HIDING IN THE
FIELD OR TRYING TO WALK THE TRAMLINES OR EVEN HAD A HIDDEN
FLASHLIGHT, THE INFRARED AND STARSCOPE CAMERAS WOULD HAVE SHOWED
THAT VERY CLEARLY?
Oh, yes. Any lights would be visible on those recordings and we
have examined them back and forth during the 1:35 AM time period
and there is absolutely no sign of any lights or people or
activity in the black parts of the East Field where the
formation appeared later.
TERJE, WHAT IS YOUR UNDERSTANDING ABOUT WHY WINSTON KEECH HAD 5
CAMERAS ON KNAP HILL IN THE COLD AND RAIN FROM LATE FRIDAY, JULY
6, TO SATURDAY, JULY 7, 2007?
Fifteen years ago in 1991, Win Keech had a close encounter with
a ball of light that created a crop circle right in front of his
eyes. And it happened in just 3 seconds. Win was standing in one
of the corners of the East Field. A ball of light the size of a
human fist appeared right in front of him and suddenly expanded
to be like a big, floating pancake.
Then it was about 20 feet in diameter. Then the wheat beneath
this kind of golden, floating pancake, started to wave around
and lay down in a perfect circle. Then this pancake goes back to
the size of a fist and slowly drifts away into some bushes and
disappears. It took three seconds. He had one single-reflex
camera and a very old video camera. But he did not have the time
to push the recording button.
Win Keech felt that this light ball, or whatever it was, was
kind of teasing him and telling him, ‘I’ll show you what I can
do. But you cannot catch me on film. But I’m here.’ That’s the
feeling Win had.
And every single summer since then, he has been down here in
Wiltshire for a couple of weeks setting up his equipment focused
on the fields at night, trying to catch this phenomenon on
video. And every year, he has gotten better and better
equipment, and finally after 16 years, he is able to have a new
contact with it in the East Field.
YET, FOR WHATEVER REASONS, HE WAS NOT OPERATING THE CAMERA
EQUIPMENT WHEN THE FLASH OF LIGHT OCCURRED.
Right. Well, he also explained he had a feeling that if he had
been very actively filming the field all the time, it probably
would not have occurred. Again, he felt that the phenomenon was
kind of teasing with him because the minute that the big light
flashed, the three people - including Win - were in the middle
of a discussion and had their focus somewhere else other than on
what was happening in the field.
He said, ‘If I had been there
totally alone focusing on the field the whole time as I have
done for the last 16 summers since the incident in 1991, this
time probably would not have happened. ‘I have a feeling,’ he
says, ‘that this phenomenon is dancing with me. It invites me to
dance. It’s invisible and it shows up when I least expect it. It
will not show itself when I ask for it. It just shows when I’m
So, again, he felt this was an answer to his questions and
encouragement to continue on his path, developing himself as a
DO YOU HAVE AN EXACT TIME FOR THE FLASH OF LIGHT?
Yes, the exact time for the flash seems to be 8 minutes past 3
AM (3:08 AM Wiltshire, England local time).
TO SUMMARIZE, AT 1:35 AM WAS THE LAST TIME THAT THE SONY
LIGHT-SENSITIVE AND INFRARED CAMERAS SHOWED DEFINITIVELY THAT
THERE WAS NOTHING IN THE EAST FIELD?
1:35 AM it is – that’s the last pan over the East Field where
you see nothing in the field.
THEN, AT 3:08 AM IS WHAT THE INFRARED CAMERA SHOWS WAS THE
MOMENT OF THE LIGHT PULSE?
[Post-interview and post-press
conference editorial note by Terje:
"There actually is an uncertainty
whether the Light Flash happened at 3:08 or 3:13. This because
of the fact that the VHS timecode was slightly imprecise. But
this makes no practical difference, so no use to mention I
believe. Only thing is that in my video-interview with Win, he
mentions 3:13, but later he corrected this to 3:08 when
analyzing the tapes. The English papers therefore refer to 3:13
as presented in the videotaped interview. But again, probably a
minor difference irrelevant to the total picture." ]
WHAT HAPPENED TO THE CAMERAS IMMEDIATELY AFTER THAT LIGHT PULSE?
At that particular moment, only two cameras were running. And in
one of those cameras, the tape had run out. On the other camera,
the tape ran out only two seconds after the light pulse.
THAT WAS THE INFRARED CAMERA.
Yes. The cameras ran out of tape because the three people were
in the middle of such an interesting discussion about
metaphysics that Win Keech forgot to change the tapes. So when
the light struck, he said, ‘Oh, gosh, that reminds me. I have to
change the tapes.’ So, he ran down to the jeep and changed the
tapes and afterwards, we see that one of those removed was
recording the light pulse two seconds before that tape ran out.
So, that was really lucky!
Light: 4 Milliseconds Image On Infrared Videotape
I have analyzed all this
On the first frame where the flash
happens, there is an electronic kind of shock. You have to
remember that the camera was connected to a video recorder by a
cord because this particular camera was on the rooftop of the
jeep. The recorder was inside the jeep. So, the cord picked up
the light pulse because the cord was like an antenna to
So, I think what I can see is that
the first kind of shock on the first video frame is from the
electromagnetic shock from the flash of light.

Camera lost sync with recorder.
On the next second frame, you see the
actual flash of light (4 milliseconds) on the tiny part of the
frame. Then, for the next 6 or 7 frames, the camera obviously had
sync trouble because it’s trying to regain its synchronization.
The EMP pulse from the light flash was
so hard that it shocked the electronics.
Infrared Camera Frame 2 After Light Flash
Upper 4 Milliseconds of Frame
Show Trees Atop Woodborough Hill
Frame 2 at 3:08 AM after light flash.
Terje Toftenes concluded that the upper 4 milliseconds of frame
shows trees atop Woodborough Hill in upper center.
SO, WE HAVE FOR SURE AT 3:08 AM THE
BIG FLASH OF LIGHT THAT EFFECTS THE CAMERAS AND THEIR SYNC AND
YOU HAVE 4 MILLISECONDS ON ONE FRAME OF WHAT YOU THINK ARE THE
TREES ATOP WOODBOROUGH HILL?
Yes. That’s correct.
NOW, WE HAVE 1:35 AM AND NOTHING IN THE EAST FIELD. AT 3:08 AM
THERE IS THE BIG FLASH OF LIGHT AND THE ELECTROMAGNETIC
DISRUPTION. WHAT IS THE NEXT TIME YOU HAVE ON VIDEO THAT SHOWS
SHADOWS THAT MIGHT RELATE TO THE FORMATION BEING IN THE EAST
FIELD, EVEN IN THE DARK?
OK, what happens after the flash is that Win runs down to the
car and changes the tapes. That takes approximately five
minutes. He gets back to the top of Knap Hill and Gary King
suggests that flash of light could have meant something.
‘Maybe that’s it!’ they kind of
joked. So, why not try to pan the field again even though it was
Win took the most light-sensitive camera he had (Sony VX2100)
which was on a tripod at the top of Knap Hill and this again was
connected to a camcorder, so it was recorded on mini-DVD tape.
He pans over the field and then they saw in the viewfinder a
shadow in the field which was in the place where the crop
formation was later seen as a full formation.
But in that pan after the flash of
light, there was only a shadow.

enhanced this digital image taken around 3:20 AM, twelve minutes

"And this was approximately 12 to 13
minutes after the light pulse. We are now talking about 3:20 AM.
That’s when they saw the first shadow and then some light came
as clouds began to drift away from the moon.
After that, they could also see with their naked eyes that there
was a shadow there and took a picture with the digital still
camera. Then they could see that the formation was there. From
that point, the (light-sensitive) Sony video camera was also
able to pick it out as well. So, from 3:20 AM (July 7, 2007),
you’ve got the crop formation there.
And about a half hour later (about
3:45 AM), they could see with their eyes.

DID THEY VIDEOTAPE AT THAT MOMENT IN
INFRARED OR STARSCOPE?
They videotaped with the normal, light-sensitive Sony camera and
also the infrared camera was running. So, we have that on three
different sources. Also from the Sony digital still camera. So,
actually four of the cameras were working at that time.
THE EYEWITNESSES ARE STILL ON TOP OF KNAP HILL. NOW THEY ARE
SEEING AND VIDEOTAPING AND RECORDING WITH VIDEO AND CAMERA
EQUIPMENT IN INFRARED, STARSCOPE AND ON A STILL FRAME THAT THERE
IS SOMETHING IN THE FIELD. WHAT DO THEY DO NEXT?
First of all, if you listen to the audio from the recordings,
you can hear they are cheering and yelling because of their
excitement, of course. They told me they thought it was sort of
an answer to the discussion they had been having about the
existence of other realities and the nature of consciousness.
This intelligence, or whatever is making the crop formations,
just wanted to show them, ‘Aha! You might be on the right
track.’ That was their feeling.
After they had done more recordings, then they were also able to
see it with their own eyes. At that time – and now we have come
to about 4 AM – then Gary and his girlfriend decide to go down
and have a look at the crop formation. So, they get in their car
and drive around the East Field to the small parking place
(silage pit) and they walk into the formation as Win is still
videotaping them from the top of Knap Hill. We have the video of
them coming into the formation and dancing!
They were extremely excited to get
into the crop formation when they knew they were the first
people on this planet entering that particular formation.

“Yeah, I was fortunate to be the
first one who walked into it with my girlfriend from Cardiff,
Paula, while Win Keech continued to videotape us. We drove down
the road just after 4 AM and walked into it just as the light
was coming up.
Walking through the formation, we
could see some of the circles were very low to the ground. Then
the next circle you would walk into, the lay would be like 6
inches above the ground and as you would try to walk on it, it
would crunch, like breaking glass.
Some of the centers were beautifully laid out in nests. Other
centers were actually broken, so there were indications that
some of them had very strong energy on them and others were put
down with very great care and beautifully laid. It was a very
contrasting formation in terms of differences in each individual

COULD YOU DESCRIBE FROM YOUR
PHYSICAL EXPERIENCE OF BEING THE FIRST PEOPLE IN THE EAST FIELD
CIRCLES, WHAT WERE THE SMALLEST SIZES OF THE CIRCLES UP TO THE
I’d say the smallest circles were maybe 2 to 2.5 feet wide.
Then as you would walk a line of
them, they would get progressively bigger and bigger. And then
the big one as you got closer to the center, I would say was
about 150 feet across at least, I’m guessing. (Largest was
160-foot-diameter). The formation was just massive and vast.
DID YOU HEAR ANY SOUND IN AND AROUND THE FLASH OF LIGHT?
No, no sound. It was very windy. We had our hoods up. It was a
very windy evening.
SO THIS FORMATION AND THAT FLASH OF LIGHT OCCURRED WHEN THERE
WAS A STRONG WIND?
Oh, yeah. It was a strong windy night.
WHICH ALMOST MAKES IT THAT MUCH MORE REMARKABLE THAT IT WOULD BE
THAT PRECISE ON THE GROUND.
I think so, yes.
THE CRYSTALLIZATION MIGHT HAVE BEEN ON PURPOSE TO PRESERVE IT IN
That’s a good observation. It sounds reasonable to me.

witnessing it, and feeling the energy that we felt, it was very
electric! We were dancing on the top of Knap Hill when we saw
Since then, a number of people who have gone in the formation,
including myself, we have had dry throats and headaches. And

Toftenes Stepped into Formation
On Wednesday, July 11
"I also had that experience when I
stepped on the outskirts of the formation that if you are used
to stepping on very cold snow, it kind of cracks under your
feet. It was the same sound.
These stems were not broken. They were just gently bent and
people who have been doing crop circle research over the years,
they have found this is how it usually is in genuine formations
– that the stems are not broken. They are gently bent so the
crop is not dying. It’s growing and if the crop is young, it
will kind of straighten up again.
I also felt there was a strong radiation from the formation.
Gary told me the first morning that he was in there that pretty
soon he had a bad headache. I experienced the same myself when I
was in there four days later. Inside this crop formation, I had
been there for half an hour when I had a terrible headache. It
lasted until I left the formation.
When I got into the car and drove
away, the headache was gone.
East Field Is
Something Knew How to Make Ovals On the
Ground That Would Look Like Perfect Circles from the Air
The East Field is not a totally flat
pancake field. It actually curves up and down.
When you look at the formation from
up above from an aerial photo, you see that the circles are
absolutely 100% correct circles. To make circles look 100% from
the air in a field that has up and down hills, you cannot create
100% perfect circles on the ground. You have to create ovals.
And that’s the case here. All the circles that are lying on a
hilly surface more than a flat surface, they are ovals.
To construct 100% correct ovals in total darkness – everything
you do is extremely difficult because you can’t see anything.
So, to construct not just one, but several ovals and large ones
– the largest one is like 50 meters, or 160 feet.
Under those dark conditions, I would
consider that impossible and everyone I have spoken to among the
researchers down here and also civil engineers who are used to
land surveys – they say that to do that under those conditions
and also within that limited time frame (90 minutes to 1 hour
and 45 minutes), they regard that as absolutely impossible for
humans to do.”
Non-Human Intelligence Behind Crop Formations
We are thrilled about what has happened and feel the public should
know, the world should know, that something is going on in these
fields that – well, I just can’t describe it.
I get goose bumps all over my body when
I’m talking about it, you know?
IN YOUR GUT INTUITION, WHAT DO YOU
SENSE IS BEHIND THE CROP FORMATIONS?
I’m absolutely convinced it is a very intelligent entity, or
whatever it is.
To me, I have a feeling that what we
perceive with our five senses is just a part of the real
reality. Our 5 senses are constructed to perceive reality in the
3-dimensional reality. I have a strong feeling that there is
life going on within us and around us that we do not perceive.
I think there are other intelligences in this universe visiting
and monitoring us. And I have a very strong feeling that our
governments know a lot more about this than they will tell us.
So, I think it is either something projected on the ground from
an alien source. Or it is projected on the ground from an
inter-dimensional source that we are not able to perceive with
But definitely, this source has
decided to present itself in a way that is so beautiful and that
is not hostile that creates the most thrilling feelings within
us and invite us to explore the unknown and invite us to start
discussions about realities, consciousness … and it is an
invitation to start growing as people again because we have for
so long been stuck in our materialistic world view and it’s
probably time to take the next step in the evolution of
That’s my opinion.
TERJE, WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT THE IDEA THAT CROP FORMATIONS
OVER THE PAST QUARTER CENTURY ARE A KIND OF 3-DIMENSIONAL SYMBOL
LANGUAGE BASED ON MATH THAT HAVE SOME KIND OF FUNCTION IN
RELATIONSHIP TO THE SURFACE OF THIS EARTH THAT WE DON’T
If the circle makers are trying to pass through messages to
humankind, why do it in such a difficult way? Why not spell it
out in letters in the fields? I think it’s like when you educate
children. If you tell children to do this, not do that, that’s
not real education. Real education is when you lead your
children to explore things on their own. Then they really learn.
That’s what I think these formations
do. They invite us to start a learning process where we have to
be the active one. They are helping us on the way, they are
giving us signs, they are giving us wonders to explore – but we
have to do the work ourselves.
That’s how we are going to evolve
and grow and learn.
Why Are Governments
Threatened by Crop Formations?
SO, WHY WOULD CROP FORMATIONS AROUND
THE WORLD THREATEN GOVERNMENTS AND MILITARY?
Because it threatens our world view. It threatens our belief
systems. To feel secure in society, you have to feel that you
These crop formations tell us that
the governments do not have control. They are apparently
appearing in our fields at night and I guess the military is
pretty frustrated – well, I KNOW the military in England is very
frustrated because their job is to control the airspace of
England and something is invading this airspace almost every
I’m not just talking of crop
formations, but also of UFOs of which there are many reports
here every summer and during the whole year actually. So, I
guess the government is very concerned about letting the
situation get out of control. You can just imagine what would
happen if some government said, ‘OK, we just have to inform you
that we are aware of Something fiddling around in our fields
We don’t know what it is, but it is
certainly there and much more intelligent than us. So, just
What kind of situation would that create? What would our
churches say? How would they define God? It’s like opening an
enormous box of possibilities that you can’t control and that’s
why the government does not want the people to be aware of this.
WHAT IS IT GOING TO TAKE TO MAKE GOVERNMENTS AND LEADERS ON THIS
PLANET FINALLY TALK IN TRUE LANGUAGE AND FACTS WITH THE REST OF
THE CITIZENRY ABOUT THE FACT THAT WE’RE NOT ALONE AND THERE ARE
PHENOMENA RELATED TO ADVANCED INTELLIGENCES?
That’s the major question, Linda. I don’t have a proper answer
to that. I’m afraid what it’s going to take is a crisis, just
like the environmental situation.
We have to have a crisis before we
start reacting. We are very conservative in the way we conduct
our lives. We don’t want change, even though we say we are open
to change, deep down we don’t want it. We want to live our safe,
predictable lives as we always have done. And these phenomena
are kind of opening a door to Something we cannot control. We do
not know what it is. It’s risky. It might be dangerous.
I don’t know what it takes, but I
would say it takes some kind of crisis before we really open our
eyes and before the government is willing to establish some type
of organized investigation.
But I think the destruction of Earth will also affect not only
this planet, but will have an effect outside our planet. That’s
why I think the concern is rising and Some Other force, or
Intelligence, is trying to give us some hints that we should
start opening our eyes now and see that we are not alone.
DO YOU THINK THE CROP CIRCLE MYSTERY IS HEADED TOWARD SOME KIND
OF RESOLUTION IN WHICH THE INTELLIGENCE BEHIND THE CROP
FORMATIONS OVER ALL THESE YEARS WILL MAKE ITSELF PUBLIC TO
HUMANS ON THIS PLANET?
I have a feeling it is. I have a feeling you can see that very
clearly from the way it is accelerating. The phenomenon is
growing. It’s definitely taking us somewhere. We are headed
toward crisis in the energy systems on this Earth.
We are headed toward environmental
crisis. I mean, for just talking about energy – in like 40
years, we will run out of gas. And we will run out of the energy
that drives 80% of all our systems on the Earth. So, in 50 Earth
years, we will have some pretty big troubles on our hands. If we
don’t wake up and do something about that pretty soon, then this
planet is going down, this civilization is on its way down.
I think this crop circle thing is a wake up call and the reason
it’s accelerating is because this crisis we are onto is also
accelerating pretty fast.
So, it’s a wake up call and a sign
that we are full speed towards a crisis.”
Military Helicopters Over East Field
"There was a terrible smell from
the helicopter. I can describe it as being a sulfurous smell
– very powerful! It made my eyes burn. I noticed half a
dozen other people as well – they were quite severely
affected. I saw one man throwing up into the crop... and my
dosimeter shot up very high between 300 and 500... which
means get out of the place. It’s dangerous!"

On Tuesday, July 10, 2007, Charles
Mallet, Owner, Silent Circle Cafe near Cherhill, Wiltshire,
England, had gone to see the massive East Field wheat formation that
apparently formed within a 90-minute window of time early Saturday
morning, July 7, 2007. (See Part 1 above)
As Charles Mallett was gathering some wheat and soil samples for
study, a large, black, unmarked helicopter came over the field and
within 50 feet of Charles. He said to me in a phone interview,
"It was very intimidating, but I
knew whoever was flying was not going to crash that expensive
machine into the East Field and was not going to start strafing
with bullets along that peaceful English farm land of
But who exactly was in that large,
unmarked helicopter and all the other military helicopters that have
swooped low over the East Field formation since July 7th.
Not only has the military helicopter
activity over the East Field been the most intense anyone has seen
there, the unidentified choppers have brought with them something
that smells bad, burns peoples' eyes, makes them nauseous - even to
vomiting - and has caused a dosimeter to climb above safe radiation
monitoring levels at least twice.
This week I talked with long-time crop formation investigator,
Andrew J. Buckley, a professional graphic artist from Winsford,
Cheshire, England. He has been concentrating on the East Field since
the big July 7th event, keeping his videotape running as the
helicopters have appeared.
Andy begins with what happened to him on

“I had arrived at the East Field,
having walked from Woodborough Hill. When I arrived at what is
known as the silage pit, which is just off the East Field, I was
on foot walking down the road, I noticed there were some
vehicles parked on the side. They were what I would describe as
vans, white vans. They were unmarked. There were three of them
and there was a person standing by one of the vans.
But I did see somebody in the formation and I assumed they were
from the white vans. I walked past the van and was about to walk
into the field and the person standing by one of the vans came
up to me and said to the effect, ‘Excuse me, where do you think
you are going?’
I said, ‘Well, I’m just going to go have a look at the
He said, ‘You do realize this is private property?’ And
something else to the effect that, ‘I’m acting on behalf of the
farmer.’ There was some kind of project going on at the moment
and would I stay out of the field.
I said, ‘All right, but can you tell me what’s going on?’
He said, ‘No.’
ANDY, DID YOU ASK HIM WHO HE REPRESENTED?
He looked formally dressed, not in military fatigues, but he
looked rather official. I mentioned the farmer, that I knew Tim
Carson, the farm owner. He didn’t really respond. He said he had
not heard of anybody called Tim Carson!
[The Carsons have owned
the East Field and huge farm for decades.]
At that point, I was getting a bit
fed up with this, so I decided to go into the field and see what
kind of reaction I would get. I walked toward the East Field and
he walked towards me and kind of blocked my way. He said, ‘You
would be ill advised to go in there at the moment. All I have to
do is ring the farmer.’
I said, ‘Well, I know the farmer. And you just kind of denied
you know him. But I actually know the guy.’ Then I tried to draw
him into a conversation about it. I’ve written some notes
shortly after they had gone. (Reading from his notebook.) ‘He
said there were personnel – he used the word personnel – in the
And they actually returned while I was standing there. These
guys came out of the formation and I saw them walking down the
tramlines. It was rather strange. There were about four or five
of them and they seemed to be wearing the same gear, which
looked rather odd. They were wearing what I'd describe as white
coveralls and when they got out of the field, they were carrying
samples. They had obviously taken plant samples of wheat and
stuff, had put into bags and were carrying these things. They
went to one of the vans, opened up the back and put the samples
in the back.
One of the guys was carrying a lot of equipment that looked to
me like bags containing either photographic equipment or
possibly some other equipment. They didn’t speak to me. The chap
I spoke to earlier seemed to be the commander-in-chief. He was
telling them what to do and they quickly got into the vans.
Before they went, he asked me if I knew anyone else who was
coming to the formation that morning. I asked him why he was
asking me that question. He said, ‘You’d be advised to stay out
of it because there is going to be some kind of military
exercise there and you would be advised to stay out.’
I asked, ‘What kind of military activity?’ He just ignored me
and got in the van and all drove off. They went in the direction
of Pewsey and on down the road.
At that point, I went back into the formation. I have a device
with me that measures radiation levels. It’s a dosimeter, which
I always use to test for residual radiation. So when I got in
the East Field formation, I was sweeping it around and didn’t
really notice anything significant.
I hung around for while and I’d say around 9:30 AM, is when the
military activity began, which he predicted. There were a lot of
helicopters. There were Apache helicopters, Lynx, Gazelle, and
they were all circling continually the East Field and this area
more than normal activity. That went on for about an hour. By
this time (10:30 AM), there were quite a few people in the
formation who had come to look at it.
By the way, I recorded all this on video, and about 11:30 AM,
one helicopter appeared. It was a Gazelle and came down the
valley very low. It took up a hovering position above the
formation. It stayed there for awhile. Then it dropped down and
started making very, very low level passes over the East Field
formation and over the people who were in the formation,
including me. And it was very intimidating. And at one point, it
almost landed in the formation. It was extremely low.
Now, this went on from – I’ve got it on the clock – from 11:30
AM to 12:30 PM (hour). Going towards 12:30 PM, it was still
there and moved over towards Knap Hill and dropped down and came
very, very slowly across the field at ground level. As it got to
the crop formation, it rose slightly in the air and hovered.
It hovered for about a couple of
minutes, and then almost immediately, I and a few other people
began to feel very unwell. It came on very suddenly and
coincidentally with when that helicopter appeared. I started to
get a very strong headache, felt quite nauseated.
My mouth was very dry and my ears
were popping. I immediately noticed there were two other people
– we were standing in the same circle (one of about 100 circles
in the extraordinary East Field July 7, 2007, wheat formation) –
and I noticed they were behaving rather strangely. So, I went to
them and asked, ‘Do you feel very unwell?’ And they said, ‘Yeah,
that’s strange, isn’t it?’ The helicopter by that point had
gone. It flew off and I never saw it again.
But we felt noticeably unwell.
ANDY, DID YOU SEE ANYTHING SPRAYED IN THE AIR FROM THAT
No. No, not at that point. That was the Monday, which was a
prelude to what happened on Wednesday, July 18, 2007, which was
even worse! (laughs)
After Low-Flying Military Helicopters in East
I had the dosimeter on and noticed
the read out had gone up significantly from zero to between 60
and 80. It was fluctuating.
WHAT DO YOU HYPOTHESIZE THE HELICOPTER WAS EMITTING?
The only thing I can think of is to go back to Freddy Silva
(investigator and author). In his book,
Secrets of the Fields (2002), he noticed similar phenomenon when he was in another East
Field formation – might have been 2000 – and a black helicopter
came over and he had again the same symptoms: headache, nausea.

Wednesday, July 18, 2007, East Field
More Aggressive Unmarked
I’ve been going in the East Field
formation every morning (since July 7, 2007) with my video
camera, really just to monitor it. And at precisely 12:47 PM
(time code on videotape), I looked down the valley towards
Martinsell Hill, which is not that far away, and I saw three
bright lights in the sky, sort of in alignment.
They appeared to be hovering fairly
low down, just below the height of Martinsell Hill. Then I
suddenly became aware that they were coming towards me and they
were coming down the valley very low heading straight for the
East Field formation. There were three helicopters and I’ve
never seen these before. I’m used to most of the helicopters
here, but these were very, very large and all black, unmarked
helicopters. They were flying side-by-side.
As they got half way down the valley, they broke formation and
the helicopter on the left moved toward the side of the hills
(Knap Hill et al). They were very low down. The helicopter on
the right moved to the right. And the helicopter in the center
carried on until they arrived at the East Field formation.
Then for the next – I’ve got it starting at 12:47 PM - for the
next ten to fifteen minutes, all three helicopters circled the
formation at very, very low levels. They would occasionally fly
down the valley and come back again. The helicopter in the
middle came down extremely low. They were very intimidating.
They were very big helicopters.
The only comparison I can make is
that a friend of mine who knows Gordon Stuart, who you know.
He’s an aircraft expert. One afternoon we went to Middle Wallop,
the Air Corp base, and we saw helicopters very similar to one of
these East Field helicopters and Dave said instantly, ‘That’s an
SAS Special Forces helicopter.’
I got a very good view of the central helicopter over the East
Field in my video and I cannot see any markings on it
whatsoever. It seems to be completely unmarked, black and big.
What was significant, though – I think they made a series of
three passes – there were quite a few people in the formation
and they were very, very scared by this. I mean, some people ran
out of the formation as these helicopters were obviously very
But on the final approach, the center helicopter came back down
again and on that third pass, we got the same effect we had on
Monday, except it was far more pronounced. It was very, very
powerful what appeared to be coming from this helicopter. And
this time, it was a lot worse. This time, there was quite severe
vomiting. (laughs) And I was throwing up quite badly, actually.
There was a terrible smell from the helicopter. I can describe
it as being a sulfurous smell – very powerful! It made my eyes
burn. I noticed half a dozen other people as well – they were
quite severely affected. I saw one man throwing up into the
I was actually shouting to these
people to get out of the formation, which we did.
Dosimeter Rose Above Danger Threshold
The other thing was that I got my
dosimeter and it had shot up very, very high, between 300 and
500. It says on the alarm threshold that if it goes higher than
275, that signifies a radiation risk. This dosimeter I have is
used in nuclear power stations to measure radiation levels.
If it goes above 275, it gives off a
signal, which it was giving off on Wednesday in the East Field,
which means get out of the place. It’s dangerous!
THAT MEANS , ANDY, THAT THE THREE, LARGE UNMARKED, UNIDENTIFIED
CHOPPERS WERE EMITTING SOMETHING THAT MADE YOU VOMIT, BUT ALSO
RADIATION WOULD HAVE BEEN INVOLVED?
It seems like it. This meter was picking up very high levels of
radiation, which dropped off quite suddenly when the helicopters
disappeared. So, that gave me an indication that the radiation
was tied in with the three helicopters.
DID ANY OF YOU SEE ACTUAL PHYSICAL SPRAY COMING FROM THE
I could smell this and I got the impression that something was
being emitted from the helicopter, but it was very difficult to
determine. It seemed to be colorless.
But what happened later, the same afternoon, Foeke Kootje was
videotaping near Woodborough Hill and an Apache helicopter
started circling quite low. I and others were in the silage pit
at the East Field nearby. That helicopter moved between us and
Woodborough Hill and something was dropped out of the helicopter
and it left what looked like a pink trail in the sky that came
right down to the ground.
That stayed in the air for awhile
and there was a funny smell – it was an unusual smell, not like
normal smoke or anything like that."
I have talked with other eyewitnesses of the July 18th events.
Gill Nicholas has been visiting
crop formations in Wiltshire since they began nearly 20 years ago.
She has seen helicopters circle over crop formations before.
But told me by phone that she has never
seen any helicopters as big and solid black as what she saw on July
18th. Gill was at the East Field silage pit with her Australian
friend, Megan, when both women watched a very large, all-black,
unmarked helicopter come down within 10 to 15 feet over the heads of
a young couple standing in one of the circles. The couple hurried
out of the field, clearly upset by the low-hovering chopper.
Then across the road from the East Field, the two women watched
another helicopter hovering between Tawsmead Copse and Woodborough
Hill. Gill said that helicopter was “discharging a gas that was
spiraling from the helicopter over the crop.”
Gill said the gas spray was a grey
color. Further down the field toward Woodborough Hill, two other
friends were videotaping the East Field. Foeke and Connie Kootje
from Holland both saw – what they called – “two projectiles” come
out of a helicopter right before a pink cloud of smoke could be seen
in the air.
The Kootjes, Andy Buckley and others
looked in the fields between Woodborough Hill and the East Field for
any objects that might have been dropped. But to date, nothing
unusual has been found.
Andy Buckley also went to the owners of the East Field and asked Tim
Carson if he knew about what the helicopters were doing. Andy also
asked about a South African man driving a large silver Hummer
vehicle. Andy and others have encountered the Hummer driver who
seems very hostile, but will not talk to anyone.
Even though Andy has known Tim Carson for several years and
discussed crop formations with him, Tim Carson did not want to talk
to Andy in the week of July 16th to 20th, while white, unmarked vans
collected plant samples from the East Field and all the unidentified
military helicopters kept flying low over the field scaring and
making visitors sick.
