- Of all the mysteries of this world, crop circles are my very best favorite...
I've been following this phenomenon since the 80's never once loosing interest in what they are, who leaves them and why. This year, I'm not even going to try to make sense of the season we've had.The season started later and ended earlier than any year in memory; but don't quote me, memory ain't what it once was.
As usual, I've omitted basic rudimentary designs; and suspected hoaxes, focusing instead on the more interesting and inspiring formations. You will definitely want to spend some time on the crop circle websites this year, because the few field researchers still doing the work have upgraded to using high resolution camera drones; and there are very cool videos of nearly every formation.

- The intricate crop circle reported in Wiltshire, UK on 12 August has been found to closely resemble the logo of a company known as Mothership, that sells glass bongs for smoking cannabis.
The individual glyphs around the perimeter of the Ansty crop circle are also very similar to the glass etching glyphs featured on some of the bongs in their collection.

- A very unusual and rather odd-looking crop circle was reported yesterday, 14 July 2015, in Alton Barnes, Wiltshire.
Resembling a simple comic strip rabbit or hare in a circle, with a diametrical strip through its centre, it's a bit creepy at first glance. Nothing like the beautiful sacred geometry we have come to associate with crop circles.
How very peculiar...

- There are currently 6492 crop glyphs documented and archived. Their proliferation and evolution in design has escalated radically over the past quarter of a century. The phenomenal spirit of the glyphs has charmed the bullish, the meek, and all personalities between – thousands who have undertaken cross-thematic studies from their point of reference, from the standpoint of their professional background.
Yet the murciriality of crop glyphs remains, and in climactical frustration a shroud of common denial has cast a shadow over that which would otherwise illuminate. For those who have avoided the trap of coyness, and treat the glyphs with significance, miracles have ensued.

- The intricate design etched into a field of barley two hours south of San Francisco was spotted on 30 December, by Julie Belanger, a photographer, as she and her husband were flying over.
The field's owner, Scott Anthony, had just returned from vacation to his home when he got a call from one of the employees on his 2,000-acre farm outside the tiny town of Chualar, 10 miles southeast of Salinas.
"He said, 'Hey, there's a buncha stuff out in the middle of the field,' so when I went up there I go, 'Ohhhh, shoot!'," the 58-year-old farmer told CNN Tuesday in a telephone interview.
What he saw was an elaborate design sculpted into one to two acres of his barley field: a crop circle — more precisely, a lot of squares and rectangles within a large circle.
“To me, it looks like a computer chip, or something like that,” said Anthony, who added that he had no idea what may have caused it. “To be that intricate in design, it kind of baffles me as to how that was done,” he said about the flattened grassland. “It didn’t look burned to me, it just looked like it was pushed over.”
