  Wayland’s Smithy showed a mathematical-calendar code for conjunction on November 21, 2007   Wayland’s Smithy of August 9, 2005 showed two binary-hexadecimal dates in the context of an ancient Sun-Venus, 52-year calendar(see… or…). As shown in the picture above, “1-1-1-0” in base-2 translates to the number “14” in base-16 by means of the sum “8 + 4 + 2 + 0”, while “1-1-0-1” in base-2 translates to “13” in base-16 by means of “8 + 4 + 0 +1”. Each of those base-16 numbers “14-5-11” or “13-10-7” may then be switched into base-10 to yield decimal fractions of 0.85327 or 0.89722.     Each decimal fraction may then be read in the context of a 52-year Mayan calendar that began on April 10, 1961 and will end on March 28, 2013 (see www.cropcircleconnec…). Both of those start-end dates are Sun-Venus conjunctions, and were specified symbolically by the crop artists in many pictures from 1997 to 2007. Wayland’s Smithy also showed “20 Mayan days” around its big outer circle, in order to confirm which calendar its two dates might refer to.    In the context of such a calendar, one finds for “13-10-7” or 0.85327 a modern Julian-Gregorian date of “August 9, 2005”, which was just the date when that crop picture appeared. Problem solved! More importantly, one finds for “14-5-11” or 0.89722 a modern date of “November 21, 2007”, which was the date when Comet Holmes conjuncted with Mirfak in Perseus two years later (see www.cropcircleconnec…).   And so that is how we knew that something important and astronomical would happen in November of 2007, although we never guessed that it would be an exploding comet. It was always going to be an astronomical explosion of some kind, because a spherical body had been shown exploding in space (along its six Euler axes x, y, z) with stars all around it: see my previous essay on this websiteor   Who might be sending us these crop pictures? Two culturally specific clues!   The use of an ancient Sun-Venus calendar at Wayland’s Smithy (and elsewhere) seems quite culturally specific, since our knowledge of that calendar comes mainly from the Venus Table of the Dresden Codex (see……). Could the British megalith builders, from whom these crop pictures apparently come, have taught that calendar to native people in central or southern America thousands of years ago? A second culturally-specific clue as to the mysterious origins of these pictures might be the “Jester’s Hat” symbolism of Mayan kings (see www.cropcircleconnec……).   Comet Holmes began to fade in intensity after mid-November 2007   After it reached maximum brightness around November 2, 2007 and conjuncted with Mirfak on November 21, 2007, Comet Holmes slowly began to fade as shown in the figure below:     “This comet is in super outburst, having brightened by many magnitudes on the night of October 24. It is in Perseus moving slowly. As of December 1 it is fading, but still of magnitude 3.  Due to the energetic nature of the outburst, the primary coma is expanding at a rate of 1.4′ per day. That has been its main feature to see using a telescope or binoculars, but is fading as the light spreads over a greater area.” (see…)   The overlaid spiral of crop from Garsington on July 15, 2005 likewise began to fade after its assigned date of “November 21, 2007”, and had faded almost completely by “December 8, 2007”:   Did human fakers make these particular crop pictures, which seemingly predict the future?   Sometimes even experts at crop-circle messaging may be fooled by the best of human fakers, into believing that “fake” crop pictures are paranormal or “real”. But does anyone really believe that local human fakers could have made all of the amazing crop pictures shown above, which seemingly predict the future? When we look at those crop pictures in closer detail, the construction task facing any human faker with boards and rope seems daunting:      Indeed, there has never been any mention of the word “comet” on a leading faker’s website That group accepts money to create corporate logos in fields worldwide, and hence is a commercial rather than a scientific venture. By contrast, the true crop artists have shown a deep interest in cometary astronomy since at least 1994  (see www.cropcircleconnec…).   Finally, could any human faker have made another remarkable crop picture from 2005, as will be discussed below? It was artistically unattractive, but carried a deep astronomical message that could not have easily been deduced before Comet Holmes outburst a few weeks ago.   Comet Holmes reached perihelion on May 4, 2007, five months before it outburst or exploded   Most comets follow elliptical orbits around our Sun, and so may come close to the Sun at certain times, or proceed far from the Sun at other times. The point in its orbit where any comet comes closest to the Sun is known as “perihelion”, whereas the point in its orbit where any comet proceeds furthest from the Sun is known as “aphelion”. The slightly elliptical orbit of comet 17P Holmes is shown by a thin white line in the figure below:     It last reached perihelion (closest point to the Sun) on May 4, 2007, which was five months before it outburst or exploded. At that time, it was almost invisible to most telescopes on Earth because of its extreme dimness. No one even cared about it, except for a few comet enthusiasts. The four inner planets of our solar system (Mercury, Venus, Earth and Mars) each occupied a precise location in space relative to Comet Holmes on that day (see above).   Now somewhat remarkably, a almost exact copy of the schematic picture just shown, for Comet Holmes at perihelion on May 4, 2007, appeared in a field at Bluebell Hill in Kent two years earlier on August 12, 2005:    At the time when that 2005 crop picture appeared, no one knew what it meant, nor did not impress anyone with its artistic merit (see Most enthusiasts favoured an earlier crop picture from the same area that had appeared on June 19, 2005. It was called the “Bluebell Spinner”, and was possibly symbolic of Comet Holmes in rapid spin before outburst.   Could Bluebell Hill of August 12, 2005 have been a human-made fake? Some people thought so at the time; but can we always tell “fake from real” simply by looking at some perceived neatness of the crop? What if a relatively “messy” crop picture (made from dry brittle plant stems) contains some deep intellectual content, that no ordinary human faker could possibly conceive of?   Conjunctions with Hamal on June 25, 2007 then Mirfak on November 21, 2007   In order to address that question more thoroughly, let us next examine several other aspects of the same crop picture: namely its two outermost circles, and also the precise location of Earth’s Moon as shown there. At first, I thought that those two outer circles might represent “asteroids”. But after studying asteroid orbits on the websites NEO (…) or JPL Small-Body Database Browser (…), I found that most major asteroids such as Ceres lie further beyond the orbit of Mars than the two outer circles as shown.   Hence it became more likely that those two outer circles were intended to represent “other orbital locations of Comet Holmes”, at dates later than May 4, 2007. With that idea in mind, I used the NEO or JPL websites to generate orbital diagrams for Comet Holmes at many later dates, and thereby found good matches to a date of June 25, 2007 for the lower circle, or November 21, 2007 for the upper (to an accuracy of plus of minus five days):     Now when we examine the path through space of Comet Holmes(see…), we find that it came very close in Earth’s sky to a bright star called Hamal in Aries on June 25, 2007. Later it came very close in Earth’s sky to another bright star called Mirfak in Perseus on November 21, 2007. That latter date was also coded in hexadecimal as “14-5-11” at Wayland’s Smithy, just a few days before on August 9, 2005.   Table 2. Three orbital locations of Comet Holmes as shown two years earlier in an English crop picture   Astronomical date Astronomical event Crop location Crop date May 4, 2007 perihelion (closest approach to Sun) Bluebell Hill August 12, 2005 June 25, 2007 conjunction with Hamal Bluebell Hill August 12, 2005 November 21, 2007 conjunction with Mirfak Bluebell Hill August 12, 2005   Relative distances from the Sun of those three outer circles are also approximately correct in astrophysical terms:   Table 3. Relative distances from the Sun of Comet Holmes versus Mars orbit in Bluebell Hill of August 12, 2005 Astronomical date Astronomical event Crop picture JPL-NEO May 4, 2007 perihelion (closest approach to Sun) 1.64 1.49 June 25, 2007 conjunction with Hamal 1.49 1.50 November 21, 2007 conjunction with Mirfak 1.78 1.74   Those crop artists often portray successive locations of some astronomical object along a single time-dependent orbital track, as shown for Comet Holmes above. For example, Jack Sullivan and Andy Thomas found that Mars was portrayed in five successive orbital locations over the years 1995-2003, on the upcoming dates of Sun-Venus conjunctions (see… www.cropcircleconnec…).   Planetary, lunar or stellar conjunctions in Earth’s sky have always been a major subject of English crop pictures, ever since the earliest days of Wiltshire 1990-1993, when people imagined that “aliens were talking to them in the fields”. Instead, we were just being shown ancient astronomical diagrams indicative of planetary conjunction or opposition: say between Jupiter and Venus, or Venus and the Moon(see   The phase of Earth’s Moon as shown at Bluebell Hill was also correct for a near-future date of May 4-5, 2007   Now let us ask whether the spatial location of Earth’s Moon was portrayed correctly at Bluebell Hill in 2005, for a near-future date of May 4, 2007? In order to locate “Earth’s Moon” in that crop picture, look for a small circle to the lower right of “planet Earth” in either figure above. The Moon was drawn there as being aligned at 45 degrees (three days) past full on May 2, 2007, and moving in the direction of Mars.   In fact, the true phase of Earth’s Moon was three days past full on May 5, 2007, and it was moving in the direction of Mars as seen from Earth. Both the Moon and Mars shared similar values of Right Ascension on May 10, 2007 just six days later. Thus to an accuracy of one day, the Moon was indeed portrayed accurately at Bluebell Hill, for a near-future date when Comet Holmes would reach perihelion on May 4, 2007 (and five months before it exploded, when no one cared about it).   A friend who does UFO research told me recently, “Well, if you can figure it out, then someone else could have figured it out too. I am still not convinced that crop circles are made by anyone except humans with rope and boards!” A fair enough criticism, and it may have been true to some extent in the past.   But now in late 2007, following the outburst of Comet Holmes, we have finally been able to understand a series of intricately designed crop pictures from two years ago in the summer of 2005. Today in 2007, “someone else” could indeed go out and make approximate copies of those pictures in English fields, whether commissioned by the BBC, the Daily Mail, National Geographic, or various other media organizations which seem to spend a lot of time debunking this phenomenon, rather than telling the truth about it. But two years ago in 2005, nobody could have done so, because Comet Holmes was not important yet; and that is the bottom line.   Overwhelming physical evidence now exists for crop circle reality as well as for astronomical future prediction   To conclude, four stunning crop pictures from the summer of 2005—namely Garsington, Waden Hill, Wayland’s Smithy and Bluebell Hill—have now provided overwhelming physical evidence to finally establish the paranormal reality of crop pictures, as well as their ability to predict the future in astronomical terms at least. As a long-term professional scientist, I have found that the people most sceptical of this strange phenomenon a(Message over 64 KB, truncated)
