The unseasonably warm spring weather has not only brought forward many summer flowers – it has sparked the usual round of crop circles.

An elaborate 100ft circle which appeared overnight has caused a stir after it was found in a field of oil seed rape near Silbury Hill, Wiltshire.

The extraordinary floral creation is comprised of six interlocking ‘petal’ like crescents.

The ancient site, the tallest prehistoric man-made mound in Europe, is considered a hot spot for the bizarre phenomena and this new design proves the crop circle season is now under way.

Expert Lucy Pringle, widely known as an international authority on crop circles, believes this is the first ‘proper’ design of the year.

She added: ‘The start of the season is always exciting, I never know what’s going to happen for the rest of the year.

‘The latest circle is a floral pattern, I’ve never seen this before. There’s never been one identical to another.’

Miss Pringle, from Petersfield, Hants, is a founder member of the Centre for Crop Circle Studies.

She has conducted years of research in to the physiological and psychological effects reported by people after visiting the formations.

She says her findings suggest there are measured changes in human hormones and brain activity following contact with the circles.

The new ‘floral’ design is the latest in a long line of patterns to be spotted in the UK over the years.

Previous formations have included stars, triangles, birds, complicated three dimensional geometric shapes and even intricate patterns with hidden mathematical codes.

One, discovered in 2008 near Wroughton in Wiltshire, was thought to represent the first ten digits of pi, the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter.

Thousands of files with details of UFO sightings and an “alien abduction” in London have been released for the first time by the Ministry Of Defence.
Over the last fifty years thousands of people across Wiltshire have recorded seeing strange sights in the skies – and in many cases the same pulsing lights hovering above one town have been witnessed by hundreds of people.

The previously classified files contain over 8,500 pages that reveal the phenomenon has been discussed at the highest levels of governments worldwide and in 1979 the House of Lords held Parliament’s only ever full debate on the subject.

The files, which also contain pictures, described how for a few hours in 1967 a War Of The Worlds-style incident was treated as a potentially real alien invasion of the UK.

Another startling revelation said in the months before the September 11 attacks, 15 unidentified aircrafts were detected on radar approaching the UK and one was detected on the actual day.

Other revelations from the 35 files include the story of a family capturing on film flashing red and white lights zig-zagging their way through the sky during the early hours in 2003.

You can see from the files that I wasn’t the only one interested in the subject, with the phenomenon discussed at the highest level of government right across the globe

Police officers, including a helicopter team, also witnessed the 20 to 30 lights over Bromley, Kent and reported the incident. Radar checks revealed nothing unusual.

The documents read: “A policeman sent to investigate confirmed the sighting. Objects were moving faster than any man-made aircraft.”

In another case a man told the MoD he believed he had been beamed up by an alien craft from his home in Barnes, south west London.

He described having a glass of milk in his garden on a night in October 1998 and “after a few moments I heard a distant roar of engines getting louder and louder.”

The man said he was terrified as a huge “cigar-shaped vehicle” appeared over his house and said it felt like he had gained a whole hour.

 “I am now beginning to wonder if I was abducted,” he told the MoD, which wrote back to him saying the clocks had gone back the night before.

The phenomenon of extra-terrestrials has fascinated people for centuries and the files also detail in full the Freedom of Information (FOI) requests and letters from “persistent enquirers” that led to the MoD opening up its files for the first time in history.

Dr David Clarke, author of the book The UFO Files, said since the introduction of the FOI act questions on UFOs were the top three most popular FOI requests received by the MoD.

“You can see from the files that I wasn’t the only one interested in the subject, with the phenomenon discussed at the highest level of government right across the globe.”

Another incident detailed is of six small “flying saucers” in a perfect line sighted in southern England.

An investigation found it to be a ‘rag-day’ hoax by engineering students from Farnborough Technical College.

In 1978, the RAF was bombarded with claims that a UFO was zipping across the sky as witnesses described a mystery orange cigar-shaped object with lights covering its base and a white cockpit.

An investigation revealed the sightings coincided with the re-entry of space debris into the Earth’s atmosphere.

The files contain pages of UFO sightings and reports, colour photographs and drawings, RAF investigations, unusual radar detections, parliamentary briefings and – for the first time – documents on the government’s policy on UFOs

Strange Wiltshire Over the last fifty years thousands of people across Wiltshire have recorded seeing strange sights in the skies – and in many cases the same pulsing lights hovering above one town have been witnessed by hundreds of people.
