Can Satellites Make Crop Circles?

It sometimes is suggested that crop circles could be made by our advanced technology. Lasers and masers and satellites all sound sexy, but could they deliver? A few years ago I got this report. It may be that we’ve improved upon the technology since then (hello you techies out there), but since we’ve been getting circles for decades in the modern era and at least hundreds of years before that (see my movie), these things could not account for the historical phenomenon.

On satellite imaging:

The main problem with using satellite imaging for catching circlemakers in the act is the resolution of the cameras. Here is a photo taken by the Advanced Land Imager (ALI), flying aboard NASA’s EO-1 satellite. The photo is of the path of a tornado in May 2002.

The path of the tornado (going left to right in the middle of the photo) is much wider than the typical crop circle, yet look how small it looks.

The other problem is that these satellites must travel at several thousand miles per hour to stay in orbit. They take pictures of the ground in wide but thin chunks as they fly by. They don’t take pictures like your camera does. The time that would be spent by one of these satellites looking at any particular field in the middle of the night would be around 1/30th of a second. Weather satellites don’t move around so fast and do take pictures in something approximating the way your camera does, but they are further out in space and can’t take close-ups of the ground.

This is part one. I’ll do another post later to deal with other aspects of how our technology can’t account for the circles.

New Crop Circle Season — First Image

Here’s the second one that’s arrived — that’s Stonehenge in the background. The crop is called oilseed rape in England, which we know as canola. The picture is by Lucy Pringle, a major circle photographer, who is in my movie.

One thing about the phenomenon is that it doesn’t give you info on a silver platter. You have to examine what is created to answer THE question that’s always up: Is it human made? The hoaxers get better all the time, which keeps the researchers stretching. Because you have to study the evidence to discern that in fact some of the formations absolutely can’t be made by people, you end up with a knowing that then is part of you. You own it and you are changed by it.

But you do have to apply yourself. On the page of info about this Stonehenge one you will find statements by two savvy people:

Person one: “I stand my ground to inform you all that the first two formations of this season are perfection in creation and these are creations not done by man!”

Person two: “Great was my disappointment upon entering the formation: I was standing in a field of destruction: broken plants, board marks, many foot prints and dehydrated plants…this rape formation was man-made, probably done by a large team of at least 20 people.”

“Ancient Aliens,” Tuesdays 8-10 on History Channel, a must see!!!!

I am so excited!!!

OK, you guys, the first of five programs on the History Channel, that was on last Tuesday, was fabulous. You are so lucky you can watch it on iTunes. It’s a DON’T MISS!!!!!

Here’s a Facebook page about the series, so you can see about the four shows coming up on Tuesday nights, from 8:00 to 10:00.

I was interviewed for a segment about crop circles, for the third program, May 4. There were no hair or make-up artists, making me look good, and having been an actress, where you always got your hair and make-up done, I thought this show would be schlocky. What a surprise. You couldn’t watch and not conclude we have been helped by creatures from elsewhere. Here’s what Kerry McKenna, the singer in my film, sent to her list:

Amazing!!! Mind blowing for sure. I was awestruck by the new ideas put forward for why and how the pyramids worked…phew!!! I think this series is going to make us realise once and for all that we have never been alone here on this little planet.

By the way, my real world career was acting. I was a drama major in college, and you can see my credits, mostly for TV shows, here. As of now, there’s an episode of the Dick van Dyke Show posted, where I play Mary’s best friend from college! Egads, it was 1966, when I was a mere girl (not). Actually, I was most successful making commercials, which they don’t post on that page – in pre-lib days, those one day jobs didn’t keep me away from the babies and my domestic chores for too long!

One more thing. Anybody got a couple hundred thousand dollars to loan out? THE place to go in crop circle country, for tourists and croppies, is the Silent Circle, which doesn’t have a location and is threatened with non-existence this year. That money is the price of the lease on the ideal spot. Or, if anyone knows another spot in the middle of circle land, speak now. Contact Charles Mallet s79669@dr.com. Time is of the essence.
