Crop Circle Crazy

Updated on November 29, 2012

Close your eyes.

Ok, maybe you can't close your eyes for this.

At least try to imagine waking up, wiping the sleep from your eyes, stretching and you look out the window above the kitchen sink, and there it is.

Much to your amazement you discover a large intricately cut crop circle right in your own backyard!

Wouldn't that be absolutely fascinating?

I for one, would love it. And honestly I don't think I would care who put it there. Aliens? Pranksters? Wouldn't matter. I'd have myself a grand work of art. I would want everyone to see it. Just like in the movie "Field of Dreams", I would want to see cars lined up for miles to come and see it. Do you hear me aliens and pranksters? If you build, I'm positive they will come.

What This Hub is Not

This hub is not intended to argue the validity of any theories about the origin of crop circles. Although I find it extremely fascinating, I don't have the time or patience to research the topic thoroughly and come to an intelligent conclusion. I think that's already been tried by many people more educated than I.

I'm sure you've at least heard of some of the suggested origins like UFOs and aliens, freak tornadoes, ball lightning and flat out hoaxes perpetrated by crafty men with nothing better to do in the wee hours of the morning in cold ol' England. I also understand why some people have a need to know who or why. I'm just happy to enjoy them.

What This Hub Is

The hub is merely to introduce you way to enjoy the beauty and artistic side of crop circles which I feel is best seen and appreciated via Google Earth. (See my hub about Google Earth!)

I hope you enjoy the 20 specimens in the video below. There is a poll at the end that asks you to vote for your favorite. Enjoy!

If you're really into crop circles and looking for a holiday destination this summer check out the links I've included. One of them has a fascinating tour scheduled for July. That sounds like fun to me!
