The UK's crop circle season has been very active this year, so active, in fact, that cops in England are cracking down on the practice, reminding unauthorized crop circle makers that they are committing a crime, and asking farmers to keep an eye out for any trespassers. What if some of the crop circle makers turn out to be extra terrestrials, though?
That said, here are the top five most amazing crop circles of 2017, so far:
5. June 17th: Cheesefoot Head, Hampshire
Could this crop circle be a symbol for the upcoming August 21st eclipse? That's what some people think, as the design appears to represent the sun and the moon interconnected together.
4. July 1st: Boreham Wood, Wiltshire
In this 200-foot crop circle design, a viewer can easily see a six-petaled flower inside a circle. Could this be a symbol for the vitality or the circle of life somehow?
3. July 8th: Hackpen Hill, Wiltshire
The eccentric shapes and mix of bright and dark colors in this crop circle design make it especially intriguing. The circle is located near the Hackpen White Horse, a beautiful and still-to-this-day unexplained "chalk hill figure of a white horse."
2. July 5th: Battlesbury Camp, Wiltshire
Apparently, this crop circle shows an ancient, universal symbol called the "Celtic Shield Knot," which has the purpose of protection. Some online have suggested this very precise design could be ET-made!
1. May 22nd: Dorset, England
Near the famous and potentially ancient Cerne Abbas Giant hill figure, which depicts a cave man with a club, a new and similarly simple looking design has popped up. The modern-day crop circle shows a seemingly more evolved, glowing figure inside of two circles.
Do you think some or all of these crop circles could be made by aliens? Or are they just a fun thought-proving attraction? Do you have any crop circles you'd add to this list?
