A weekly subscription newsletter dedicated to serious crop circle research

Crop Circle Research Newsletter - Sunday 29th April 2007

Hello, and welcome to the weekly newsletter of

A fairly quiet week crop circle wise, but Lucy Pringle managed to get aerial photos of the second crop circle in the UK. This one was a smaller, design located at Chilcomb Down (near Cheesefoot Head) in Hampshire. Ref uk2007ab in the database contains three photos showing the design from various angles. I drove up there myself, so there is also a ground photo taken from the nearby road (A272).

During the week I've also received a number of emails concerning the database and its ease of use. Keep them coming in, as feedback is always welcome, so that I can improve things and make things easier for newcomers. The most common problem seems to be people entering their username and password but still being asked to login. This is most likely caused by not having 'cookies' enabled on your web browser. A cookie is a little marker file that a website places in your browser (a bit like bookmarks) in order to help a website remember customised details for you. Some websites (such as Amazon) use cookies to remember your favourite choices (ever wonder why if you order a book about crop circles, it recommends various similar books next time you visit), but in the case of the crop circle database, it simply stores a flag to label the fact you've logged in successfully - so doesn't ask you for a username and password.

The cookie is a permanent one (assuming you don't tell your web browser to delete cookies), so that if you turn your computer off and then come back the following day, you should be able to enter the database without re-entering your username and password (because the cookie will remember that you've already successfully logged in). This enables you to directly click on links such as the above link to the Chilcomb Down formation and go directly to the relevant entry without having to login first.

Thus, the database becomes as unobtrusive and easy to use as possible. And of course, because I value privacy and security as utmost, you can be 100% certain that no personal details are ever passed on or shared with a third party. Indeed, other than your email address, username (which can be anything) and your password (again, anything you like) we don't store any personal information at all. A valid email address is only required in order to validate your account - so that we don't get loads of spammers or advertisers trying to create fake accounts in order to misuse the system and post adverts/junk on the various comments/guestbook sections of the database.

Next, I received two UFO reports this week. The first is rather sketchy on actual details and witness accounts, but was reported by several Somalian newspapers, when a mysterious device a bit like a satellite landed near Buulo Burde Town in Somalia. More information is available at but I've not managed to track down any other reports.

The second event was reported on the mainstream news here in the UK when airline pilots spotted what they claimed was a "giant UFO". According to The Register, two experienced airline pilots at the controls of separate flights have reported seeing a mystery object "up to a mile wide" hovering off the coast of Alderney on Monday, This is Guernsey reports. However, they've just published a follow up story saying that what the pilots saw could have been military test planes.

If you have any interesting news from around the world, on a subject related to crop circles, UFOs or spiritual thinking, which you think is of interest to subscribers of this newsletter, then please contact me now. I appreciate all feedback.

Lastly, why is it that military and scientific type people always think that any extraterrestials are likely to be malevolent? Another story reports on a group of American aerospace engineers having written a book on how to defend the earth against alien invasion. Their book, entitled "An Introduction to Planetary Defense: A Study of Modern Warfare Applied to Extra-Terrestrial Invasion" is currently being sold by Amazon. However, The Register, seem fairly dismissive of their ideas.
