An Interpretation of the Russian Crop Circle of June 2010
The English crop circles, as usual, are headlining the 2010 season. Some pleasant designs have appeared in the fields there, and a few in other countries, but none of this year’s circles has stirred me like the Russian crop circle found in Krasnodar Region, Belorechensk District last month.

The Russian formation hasn’t received much attention by the crop circle community. In fact, a web search turns up just a handful of pages referencing the formation at all. But when I first saw the diagram and read the report, I immediately felt that 1) the Krasnodar formation was not a crop circle flattened in the field by humans, and 2) its design represents something wildly important.
One of the first things I noted was that the location of the formation creates an approximate 90-degree angle between Giza and Wiltshire. What this may signify, if anything, hasn’t been determined, but I can’t help but speculate a bit on the significance of the design and its geographic placement. (See References following this article.)
I’d like to say the Russian crop circle last month was quite beautifully formed, and aesthetically resembles the simpler formations of fifteen or twenty years ago. Perhaps its very simplicity and its remoteness explains why the formation has received little attention. In any case I’m comfortable saying that the motivation behind this formation appears to be beyond a crop artist’s desire for recognition.
To clarify my position on modern crop circle phenomenon compared with true crop circles, I feel the two phenomena can’t simply and thoughtlessly be combined and assumed to be one mystery. Some overlap seems to occur at times between the two, but evidence I’ve collected over the year reveals that, while increasing numbers of formations are created by humans, the original phenomenon still exists.
Anyway, back to the Russian formation. My take is that the large ringed circle represents the Sun, whereas the next three circles represent Mercury, Venus, and Earth. And then, a spiral - perhaps the Norway Spiral - is connected to the Sun via the meandering line. In other words, the spiral originates from apparent orbit around the Sun.
What could this mean?
Direct experience with the circle makers has provided many of us researchers with undeniable evidence that a non-human intelligence communicates - i.e, conveys meaning - via abstract designs put into the landscape, with deep meanings encoded both in both the shapes and locations where they appear. So of course the aforementioned assumption of the Russian crop circle’s representational symbology begs interpretation:
Notably, the Norway spiral appeared in a place where the highly charged particles from the Sun, mostly electrons, hit Earth’s magnetosphere, creating auroras that feature prominently in high-latitude locales such as Norway. Auroras most frequently appear in conjunction with intensified solar activity, such as that which has been occurring this year, marking the end of an unusually-long solar minimum.
Notice in the diagram that the spiral originates from an apparent orbit around the Sun. I acknowledge that my speculative interpretation of the Russian crop circle gets a little deeper into the fringe at this point, but to me it makes sense that the spiral may represent the object or light that accompanied Comet Hale-Bopp as it approached the Sun in late 1996 - the lowest point of the last solar minimum.
Could the spiral in the Russian crop circle be hinting that whatever dislodged, or otherwise disappeared, on the other side of the Sun has reappeared, and in the form of Norway’s spiral “cloud circle?” If so, the implications may be far too difficult for many to comprehend or accept.
References: I am including a few supporting references for anyone who accepted the official story that there was nothing unusual at all in the tail of Hale-Bopp, or the alternate official story that whatever mysterious object was seen and photographed in tandem with Hale-Bopp in the fall of 1996, prior to the comet emerging from beyond the Sun (sans mystery object), was either a star or a chunk of ice shed by the comet.
For more details, see Comet Hale-Bopp’s “Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy?” and also Whitley Strieber’s article. Strieber’s section titled “The Hale Challenge” is especially pertinent. Clearly, my friend Ron and I were not the only ones who noticed that the object was NOT a star!
Also, Maria Beloyvan, a Russian scientist visiting Fermilab earlier this year, died under unusual circumstances just weeks before the Russian crop circle appeared, possibly for sharing secret information pertinent to the preceding interpretation. Special thanks to my friend Chris Taylor at Wild Rote for pointing out that the EU Times Online article’s author is of questionable integrity. Thanks too to Mike Clelland at Hidden Experience for plotting the locations of Stonehenge, Giza, and the Russian crop circle, showing that the angle created by the Krasnodar location is slightly less than 90 degrees.
