Castle, Wiltshire, UK, Sunday 11th August 5.15 am, 1996
21 year old male student, during a crop circle vigil, is asleep
in his tent overlooking the wheat fields of Oliver's Castle,
when suddenly he is awoken by a humming sound.
He peers sleepily out of his tent flap and sees lights flying
across the field below. He grabs his camcorder and shoots this
extraordinary film of small UFOs, whilst in the space of a few
seconds, a breathtaking pattern unfolds in the cornfield beneath
This is the formation, dubbed
'The Snowflake' by researchers.
I digitised the video using a Miromotion
capture board on a Macintosh 9500/200.
If the film was hoaxed it was an extremely good job.
I have examined the film frame by frame and reckon it would be
very hard to draw moving objects onto the frames with such accuracy
and with consistent lighting. Also, the objects motion path is
integral to the scene despite the camera wobble etc.
See my further comments and up-to-date info on this next page:
examination of each frame yields some interesting images. The
objects, far from being vague blobs of light, appear to be solid
objects of a 'batwing' shape'and with a central spherical body.
Moreover they are spinning in flight.
been very impressed by some of the recent UFO footage that is
circulating (such as that shot in Mexico and now out on video.)
Even given the latest technology (as used
to create films like Toy Story and Independance Day ) Hollywood
'special effects' teams have yet to concoct anything as bizarre
or realistic looking as the footage that is 'cropping up' from
these sightings. One cannot help but wonder, if this is real
the hell is out there ?
I posted this page I have had some reactions from people who
are into Crop Circles and suchlike. It seems that this video
is very controversial.
enterprising fellow attempted to make a similar video on his
own in three hours (to test the ease with which the video could
be hoaxed). I have to say.. despite his applaudable effort, it
immediately looked to me like a fake compared to this one.
