The crop circles of 2016 were just as impressive and surprising as ever, with many lovely designs popping up throughout the United Kingdom. Whether man-made, ET-made, or both, these beautiful 2016 crop circles deserve a look:
5. Stonehenge, Wilts in July
On the 20th anniversary of a famous July 1996 Stonehenge crop circle, another circle near Stonehenge appeared. Although the 1996 circle was much larger, both circles sport beautiful, sharp mathematical designs, with the modern-day one clearly displaying a seven-pointed star. The number seven symbolizes enlightenment and the non-physical realm.
4. Ansty, Salisbury, Wiltshire in August
Although many online were quick to point out this gorgeous UK crop circle's similarity to the logo of a scifi glass and apparel shop called Mothership Glass, not everyone is quick to pronounce it has a man-made hoax. After all, maybe aliens and humans are just inspired by the same symbols of sacred geometry?
3. Chilcomb Ranges, Hampshire, England in August
200 total triangles can be counted in this intriguing design, which also apparently demonstrates the number 23, a number symbolizing the synchronicity of life events. Some speculate the circle could represent a calendar or date.
2. Reigate Hill, Reigate, Surrey in July
Shortly after a friendly alien face with a feathered head appeared in Surrey, England, a woman was spotted visiting the crop circle, trying to absorb its "vortex energy," despite the fact that the circle is located on private property. Does someone or something think UFO and Alien Disclosure is coming soon? This recent crop circle is reminiscent of another one from 2002 in South England.
1. Ranscomb Bottom, Calstone Wellington, Wilts in July
A leading crop circle site named this crop circle the most "impressive formation of 2016," so it's fitting that it would make the #1 spot on this list. The 450-foot wide circle is just as lovely at is perplexing to look at it, eloquently displaying a variety of dizzying geometric "ideas."
Are there any crop circles from 2016 that you think should have been included on this list? What do you think of these crop circles? Did aliens make them? Humans? Both?
