In 1994, crop circles caused a sensation in Holland. 1995 proved highly disappointing for the many people who had found a new interest; almost none were discovered. 1996 seemed better, though the biggest story of the year went to a local farmer who not only discovered a crop circle in his fields, but also the method by which it was made: a long cord.
This year, the cropcircles are back in Holland: en masse. Dutch TV and newspapers are reporting on the phenomenon, largely unaware of what has transpired in England for the last decade or so.
The biggest sensation occurred on July 8, when in Hooghalen (Drenthe), no less than 15 circles were discovered in a formation that could match any big formation in England. Each circle had a diameter of about 20-25 feet.
According to the "croppies", it was no accident that this circle was formed just after the Pathfinder landing on Mars. With statements such as these, newspapers didn't have a hard time coming up with headlines: "Cropcircles a revenge of the Martians?"
Despite such obviously gullible statements, CCCS-Holland, consisting of about 15 people, many of them also interested in the UFO-phenomenon, is trying to do onsite research at each and every crop circle. And they could have a lot of work, for if this season is anything like 1994, they will have about one hundred circles to investigate.
