August 20, 2000 East Kennett, Wiltshire, England - This weekend I learned from crop circle researchers, Ed and Kris Sherwood of Millennium Research in Santa Monica, California, that when they were in Wiltshire this summer doing a meditation experiment, the couple had a close encounter with a helicopter and two unidentified aerial craft. The date was July 31st around 11:30 PM and the location was the East Kennett square inside a circle formation. Part of their meditation experiment was psychic photography, to photograph with a flash camera the air around them in an effort to capture images of luminosities and translucent spheres that increasing numbers of people have photographed the past several years. The exact source of the images is still a mystery. Their camera was flashing in the darkness when they first heard a loud helicopter approaching.

August 20, 2000  Langdon, North Dakota - Today I talked with crop duster pilot, John Boe, who has been flying and spraying cereal crops for the past seven years around Langdon, North Dakota - a farming community near the Canada and Minnesota borders. Last month, on July 20th, he was flying over the Janelle and Randy Bata farm three miles west of Langdon when he saw what looked like a tinkertoy of half a dozen circles connected by a path in a wheat field.

August 17, 2000  Woodborough Hill, Near Alton Priors, Wiltshire, England - This past Saturday night of August 12, 2000, around 10:30 PM, three of us had climbed Wiltshire's famous Woodborough Hill which has been a central focus for crop formations since the phenomenon seriously began on a global scale in 1990. With me was Andrew J. Buckley, a graphic artist from Manchester, England, and his friend, Hazel. Andy had videotaped six small, white, glowing lights moving over the wheat field between Woodborough Hill and Pickled Hill on July 18th and wanted to visit again to see if any more would turn up.

July 16, 2000 Wiltshire, England - In the past week, there have been nearly a dozen formations in southern England and five of them emerged between July 15 to 16. Charles Mallett and his wife, Frances, have been studying, photographing and drawing crop formations in England for some time and produce a great web secton at the cropcircleconnector.com called C& F Phenomenon. I talked with Charles this afternoon about what happened this weekend.

The “Cell from Hell” Is Back in North Carolina Estuaries

Two menhaden fish among 300,000 dead in recent weeks in the Neuse and Pamlico Rivers of North Carolina's estuaries. The large red and bleeding sores are typical of the Pfiesteria dinoflagellate which can be either an algae plant or amoeba animal, depending upon environmental conditions. In its amoeba form, it likes to eat fish. Photograph © 2000 by Rick Dove.

July 9, 2000  New Bern, North Carolina – In southeastern Europe the past several days, temperatures above 100 degrees in many places – and up to 113 degrees in the Turkey and Romania region – have killed at least 38 people. Strong winds from the Sahara desert began blowing on Friday causing hundreds of fires in Greece, Italy and Croatia. And this is only the first of July.

July 9, 2000  Wiltshire, England – While researching for my next book about mysterious lights and crop circles, I found fascinating history and facts about the center of the crop circle mystery, Wiltshire, England, in a recent book entitled, Legendary Landscapes, Secrets of Ancient Wiltshire Revealed by Julie and John Wakefield who live in Marlborough. This work is essential reading for anyone interested in prehistoric Avebury, the region’s Neolithic ancestors and the rites that were performed in a land filled with stone circles, avenues, long barrows and rock mounds whose exact purposes are still unknown. In the decade of the 1990s and ongoing, some of the largest and most spectacular crop formations in the world have been focused in Wiltshire’s Vale of Pewsey which the Wakefields have discovered is connected to Avebury and the large land canvass upon which cycles of birth, death, fertility, harvests, the sun, moon and stars were tracked for survival and communication with the Infinite Source.

One particularly surprising revelation is described by the Wakefields:

“The Neolithic people appear to have placed particular sites onto the natural rolling hills to accentuate their womanly shape; so much so that they have created an incredible architectural icon. Could this really be possible – or could the position of the monuments that seem to make up this female form be mere coincidence and not intentional at all? … There are many examples of vulvas engraved on rock surfaces in caves, some of which are reddened with ochre which was symbolic of life-giving blood. The carvings date by tool association to around 30,000 B. C. …(In Wiltshire) The two hills that form the breasts of the Alton Barnes Goddess are Milk Hill and Walker’s Hill.” With drawings and photographs, the Wakefields show how those hauntingly beautiful hills in the Vale of Pewsey were seen by Neolithic minds as breasts and the body of a goddess with an accompanying serpent.”

Other research the authors have done about the archaeological finds of Egyptian and Mesopotamian beads, other objects and name connections between England and Egypt are another reason that Legendary Landscapes should be read and treasured as an invaluable archive and reference.

July 6, 2000  Wiltshire, England - By the first week of July 2000, with so much of the summer yet to unfold, the crop circle mystery has been more global than 1999. Thirty-six crop formations have been reported in England, eighteen in Germany, three in The Netherlands, two in Spain, two in Italy, two in the U. S., one in Russia, one in Canada and one in the Czech Republic. In the past two weeks in England alone, two of the most extraordinary formations of the past decade appeared. The checkered one featured at the top of this report emerged in a field of very green immature wheat. Researcher Charles Mallett of Horton, Wiltshire discussed the Windmill Hill pattern at the web site where he and his artist wife, Frances, produce C & F Phenomenon Research Field Reports.

Brown Tide Devastating Long Island’s Great South Bay Shellfish

July 2, 2000  Stony Brook, New York – Biologists in the Marine Sciences Research Center at State University of New York at Stony Brook are puzzled by the vigorous brown tide algal bloom this spring that has killed off most of the shellfish in Long Island’s Great South Bay. Part of the problem, in addition to the more traditional link of algal blooms to pesticide and fertilizer runoffs from land, is global warming. Winter 2000 was warmer than normal and Spring 2000 was the warmest spring on record in the United States. But no one expected brown tide algae to persist through the winter and then flourish and spread as far as it has in the Great South Bay.Click for report.
