Found on July 20th
by farmer Duncan Campbell as he prepared to cut the hay-field belonging
to the Land Conservancy Trust on Langtree Road, just opposite his
own farm. The single circle measured 18 paces across (approx. 50')
and contained a fluffy counter-clockwise lay and a center that was
decidedly off what would have been the geometric center. There was
no hole in the center.
The farmer's best estimate of when the circle had
occurred was on the previous night (July 19th) or earlier during
the day of July 20th, prior to his arrival to cut the field. If
this is so, then this simple circle presents an astounding display
of incredible delicacy and the same amazing precision seen in various
crop formations over the years—and also reported earlier in 2008
The photo below illustrates our point. A dandelion
seed-head which has gone to seed is gently bent over and entwined
in the center swirl--with the fluffy seed-head totally intact.

As any child who has ever played in a field knows,
when dandelions have gone to seed and formed these white fluffy
balls the individual feathery seeds can be dislodged by the slighest
puff. Dandelions gone to seed were seen throughout this circle,
some visible in the photo below.

Another formation, found in a diffrerent section of
the same Land Conservancy Trust property, may have occurred around
midnight on July 15th when "Helen," a local woman who lives nearby,
witnessed a glowing white column of light shooting down from the
sky. Thinking her computer had been left on, she got out of bed
to turn it off, at which point the tube of light disappeared.
One of 3
circle centers around a triangle, this one with a standing
around which other plants have been knotted.
This formation, again in a hay-field, consisted of
three exterior flattened circles, each around the rim of a flattened
circular ring and at the apex points described by an interior triangle
created by flattened pathways.

The lay in this formation looked flatter than that
seen in the other B.C. formations this year, but there was no visible
damage to the plants when first seen. Some layering of the flattened
crop was noted, particularly at intersections of pathways. But the
most remarkable effect existed in two of the circle centers, where
clumps of standing crop were securely wrapped with multiple twisted
plant stems. One of these twisted centers has been sampled and will
be examined further.

All three of these Canadian formations so far (mid-August)
occurred on southern Vancouver Island, near Duncan—within about
10 miles of each other. And all three also formed in hay, on Land
Conservancy and/or Nature Preserve land, appearing to have been
gently flattened in a fluid, flowing manner with no visible damage
to the plants.
What energetic force is responsible for the dramatic
apical plant stem node elongation documented at the Quamichan Lake
circle? Would we have found the same node changes in the single
circle which occurred subsequently, had it not been already harvested?

What energetic force can selectively flatten into
recognizable patterns only the previously cultivated plants in a
field, leaving re-introduced indigenous prairie plants in that field
untouched? And what sort of energy could possibly flatten fescue
around the fluffy head of a dandelion plant which has gone to seed
without disrupting it at all—and, further, swirl this fragile seed-head
into the center of a flattened crop circle without dislodging any
of its seed filaments?
And is there a connection between the glowing column
of white light witnessed by a local woman shortly before the triangle-in-a-ring
formation was first reported? The one in which two of the circle
centers contained tufts of fescue wrapped like Christmas presents
in fancy ribbon? If these were isolated events they would certainly
be of interest. The fact that they are representative of a phenomenon
that is on-going around the world--for more than 30 years now—certainly
provides adequate reason to consider them seriously.
