Crop circle and UFO research
The presence of iron both in the atmosphere and in seawater affects our climate. In the atmosphere, iron containing particles scatter sunlight back into space and cause cooling. The iron in these particles helps to form sulphate aerosols. These sulphate aerosols scatter sunlight back into space and also start the formation of clouds. By influencing phytoplankton growth, iron in seawater affects the ability of the oceans to take up the very important greenhouse gas, carbon dioxide.
Electromagnetic forces are at play in the creation of crop circles is associated with the Beer-Lambert Principle, which describes the absorption of EM energy by matter. BLT found that the level at which node elongation decreased in relation to the distance from the center of the circle fit the Beer-Lambert Principle. This means that it is highly probable that an electromagnetic energy is involved. In 1993, in a crop circle created during the Perseids meteor shower, some of the plants in the middle of the circle were coated with an iron glaze. Under further examination it appeared that meteoric dust had fused and covered these plants, some plants had the material embedded into them. After finding these iron particles, BLT began looking at soil samples to find out if this was happening in other circles. They continued to find the same material, and occasional also found tiny magnetic iron spheres. In some cases they found that the distribution of these spheres in the crop circle indicated that they were dispersed by a rotating force. Theoretical hypothesis: A gravity field (caused by a gravity engine) surrounding a UFO would lock all particles on it's way through the atmosphere while the particles partly melt, and then by rotating like a "beam printer" in the center of each circle the iron particles will be dispersed when they collide with the crops. The same gravity field may bend light so one see what is on the opposite side of the UFO and therefore unless direct hit by direct sunlight reflecting from the surface or plasma self-illumination (in case of high speed), it will be almost invisible. If hit by direct sunlight and low speed, one can expect that the shadow shows up at the same side as the sun, and the other side will reflect the light because of the light bent around the object to the opposite side.
In an article from BLT research one can read: Energy dispersive spectroscopy (EDS) comparisons between the soil substrate, Figure 3c, and the magnetic coatings, Figure 3d, confirmed the absence of mixing with the soil substrate, as none of the calcium or silica, typical of this chalky soil, were present in the glaze. The presence of iron and oxygen only, suggests a possible meteoric origin, especially as the incident was dated to within a few days of the Perseid meteor shower which in 1993 produced some of the highest activity in years (Brown and Rendtel, 1994). The elements Ni, Cr and Mn, normally significant components within any iron-bearing meteor (Krinov, 1960), were absent in the EDS analyses. This may relate to the fact that heating caused by entry into the atmosphere, produces a "fusion crust". This external coating is composed of magnetite, much of which is ablated as molten droplets which may immediately cool, or become partially oxidized to hematite (Buddhue, 1957). The congealed droplets drift to Earth several days after a major shower (Buddhue, 1961) and have also been found in the soil surrounding known iron meteorite falls (Krinov, 1960) The size range of such spherules is consistent with particles found in the crop formations. X-ray powder spectroscopy of such iron spherules has shown lines of magnetite only (Mason, 1962), while others have shown both magnetite and hematite (Buddhue, 1957). In this context, it should be noted that we are aware of only one similar incident, and that took place on January 8, 1981, approximately 48 hours after the Quandrantid meteor shower (another of the year's active showers). This event, occurring in Trans-en-Provence, France, coated the upper side of limestone rock and soil with a thin plating of iron oxides only (Velasco, 1990). Thus timing, content, and form are all consistent with a meteoric origin.
Levengood partnered with John Burke, and Nancy Talbot to create the BLT Research Team. found that the plants inside some of the circles had enlarged nodes; they looked almost as if they were stretched. According to Talbott, sometimes the elongated nodes are found in some parts of the circles but not others. They were also able to reproduce this effect by putting normal samples in a microwave for 20 seconds.
After listening to a radio show with the BLT research team regarding a crop circle formation in 1996 in Logan, Utah, geologist Diane Conrad decided to test the soil herself. She had written her master thesis on the effects of heat on clay. Since Levengood mentioned that he believed the effects exhibited evidence of brief bursts of heat, she figured she could test that theory by examining the crystallinity of the effected soil. Her test showed that the soil inside the crop circle did have an increased crystallinity as compared to the control soil taken outside of the crop circles, supporting Levengood's findings.
Upon completion of the XRD work the Kubler Index (KI) data was submitted to Ohio statistician, Dr. Ravi Raghavan for analysis. Dr. Raghavan's first objective was to establish whether there were differences in the KI values between the Edmonton soil samples and controls and, if there were, to determine whether these differences were statistically significant. As stated at the beginning of this report ("Study Results"), a sharpening of the mica 001 peak (a decrease in the KI, indicating growth of the illite/mica crystals) was found in the cropcircle soils, as compared with the control soils. Further, this increase was found to be statistically significant at the 95% level of confidence. Dr. Raghavan was then sent W.C. Levengood's node-length data and asked whether a correlation existed between the plant node-length increases and increase in soil crystallinity at the same sampling locations. The regression analysis indicates that there is a correlation between Kubler Index and Node Length, at more than the 99% level of confidence. Dr. Raghavan's statistical report follows below.
Five years after the Logan formation had occurred (and after this Lab Report had been written) I heard about a young man from Salt Lake City who had visited the Logan circles a week or two after they were discovered and had a very unusual experience. Dave Rosenfeld had never seen a crop circle before and, out of curiosity, he drove to the Logan site to see a crop circle for himself. Arriving at about 8 pm (just as it was getting dark) he and his girlfriend went into the field and were amazed to observe multiple "small white lights moving about the field" both over and near the formation.
These balls of light (BOLs) were perfectly spherical, some appearing to be 2-3 inches in diameter and others more the "size of a baseball." They noticed that "the closer they were, the brighter they were" and that "the ones farther away were not only bigger, but more transparent, or not as bright." They made no sound at all. Dave reported that there were "about 20 of them at a time...like a whole herd of luminous bubbles dancing around the field."
When Dave or his girlfriend tried to get closer to any of the lights they would disappear, or move quickly away, "always keeping about 3 ft. away from either one of us." The BOLs, at times, moved very fast, as if "interacting with each other" and "as if they were alive," never moving more than 15 ft. above the ground. The couple tried to catch one of the BOLs, on one occasion attempting to "trap it between us," but the BOLs just disappeared or would blink out when either Dave or his girlfriend got "too close."
In another instance Dave tried to "fool" the light balls by turning his back and pretending that he intended to leave the circle. After walking a few feet he suddenly spun around, to see a very bright light ball right behind his back. While chasing the light balls Dave had the impression that the BOLS were "teasing us...some would fly or float around us as if they were playing with us, or checking us out; but if we got too close they would be gone instantly, like a bubble popping."
Theoretically one can wonder if this balls are making microwave radiations from below the ground and not only above in possible combination with gravity waves to better bend the crops from the bottom.
Scientific Studies Confirm: "Crop Circles Are Made by Balls of Light.
DR. ELTJO HASELHOFF is one of the few people on planet Earth to have had a paper published on crop circles in a peer-reviewed scientific journal (.Physiologa Plantarum.). His paper asserts that the long-recognized connection of crop circles to balls of light may be even stronger than many think. Here, in layman.s terms, Dr. Haselhoff outlines the important findings of his paper.
Over the years, numerous people have claimed that they have seen how a crop circle was created by one or more "balls of light".
Recent scientific studies have confirmed these statements: Circumstantial evidence has shown that crop circles may very well be made by .balls of light' indeed! This article explains the essential elements of these studies in simple terms.
NODE LENGTHENING The stems of corn-type plants are characterised by little .knuckles', at several positions along the stems (see Figure 1). These nodes act as a kind of ligament. They allow the plants to bend towards the light, even after they have grown to their full length.
In the early 1990s, the American biophysicist William Levengood discovered that plants inside crop circles often had much longer nodes than those in the undisturbed, surrounding crop.
Although there are known biological effects that can create node lengthening, these could be easily ruled out. It was clear that something else had happened. The effect could be simulated by placing normal, healthy stems inside a microwave oven.
The heat induced by the microwaves made the liquids inside the nodes expand, just like the mercury inside a thermometer. This caused the nodes to increase in length, while the amount of lengthening increased proportionally to the amount of microwave energy that was generated.
This finding led to the conclusion that the node lengthening effect may be caused by the involvement of heat, possibly caused by microwave radiation. In fact, traces of heat have been found innumerable times in crop circles all over the world, such as dehydrated plants, burn marks, and molten snow.
BALLS OF LIGHT The number of .balls of light' that have been seen by eyewitnesses has increased considerably over the last couple of years. Sized somewhere between an egg and a football, these bright, fluorescent, flying light objects seem to be somehow related to the crop circle phenomenon. They often appear in the fields during the night a crop circle forms, and have been seen (and filmed!) many times in and around crop circles. Several persons have even claimed that they witnessed how these balls of light actually created a crop circle.
SCIENCE RESPONDS In the year 1999, William Levengood and Nancy Talbott published a scientific paper  that contained a study to the node lengthening effect in three different crop circles, two in England and one in the USA. The authors presented a .quantitative analysis.; in other words, the article tried to explain the AMOUNT of node lengthening throughout the crop circle, by means of physical models. The authors concluded that the heat (that had made the nodes swell) was electromagnetic in origin.
One year later, I contributed a paper reacting to the one by Levengood and Talbott. This article appeared early 2001 . The paper reinterpreted the data published by Levengood and Talbott and showed that the node lengthening as measured in all three crop circles could be perfectly explained by assuming that a .ball of light. had caused the node swelling effect. An identical analysis performed on a famous man-made formation (Dreischor, Holland, 1997) did not show these characteristics at all.
The yellow bars indicate the average node length measured at seven different locations across the crop circle, from one edge (position b1), through the centre (a4), to the opposite edge (b7). Note the perfect symmetry, which is remarkable! Similar graphs were obtained from two different cross sections through the circle, revealing a perfect circular symmetry: long nodes towards the centre of the circle, shorter nodes towards the edges.
The thick, continuous, blueish line represents the theoretical value of the node length across the circle, if it were caused by a ball of light at a height of 4 meters and 10 centimetres. (This height corresponded to the estimate of the eyewitness). Just like the three crop circles analysed by Levengood and Talbott, the theoretical values for the node length (blue line) correspond perfectly to the measurements (yellow bars).
Consequently, the circumstantial evidence left in the fields was in perfect agreement with the words of the eyewitness: the crop circle was indeed created with the involvement of a "ball of light".
CONCLUSIONS My paper shows that the node lengthening in several crop circles corresponds perfectly to the effect that would be created by a ball of light, heating up the crop during the creation of the crop circle. This is not the case for a man-made formation.
The amount of node lengthening, and in particular its symmetry over the crop circles, lack any trivial explanation. Consequently, the study confirms the words of eyewitnesses, stating that they saw how crop circles were created by "balls of light."
My paper does not attempt to explain where the balls of light come from, nor does it explain how the crop is flattened. It does, however, give a strong argument to take the "ball of light" phenomenon, as well as the words of eyewitnesses, very seriously, and I hope will stimulate further study.
Finally, it should be mentioned that all these findings and conclusions have been published in .peer-reviewed. scientific journals. In order to guarantee a high level of reliability, such journals employ so-called .referees. (objective, anonymous experts), who accurately check each contributed paper for errors and inconsistencies before it is published.
Consequently, conclusions published in peer-reviewed scientific journals can not be simply dismissed as wild fantasy or pseudo-science. Therefore, it is fair to say that recent scientific findings have established considerable progress in understanding the crop circle phenomenon, although many questions still remain unanswered.

Findings of metallic objects in body
Dr. Roger K. Leir, author of the Aliens and the Scalpel-First and Second Edition, .UFO Crash in Brazil., .Casebook Alien Implants., .Chopped Liver. and three other books published outside the United States, including .Implantes Alienegenas. published in Portuguese in Brazil, and .Ovnis and Implants. published in France by Le Mercure Dauphinois. It has been said that Dr. Leir is one of the world.s most important leaders in physical evidence research involving the field of Ufology. He and his surgical team have performed fifteen surgeries on alleged alien abductees. This resulted in the removal of sixteen separate and distinct objects suspected of being alien implants. These objects have been scientifically investigated by some of the most prestigious laboratories in the world including Los Alamos National Labs, New Mexico Tech, Seal Laboratories, Southwest Labs, the University of Toronto, York University, and the University of California at San Diego. Their findings have been baffling and some comparisons have been made to Meteorite Samples. In addition some of the tests show metallurgical anomalies such as highly Magnetic Iron that is without crystalline form, combinations of crystalline materials mixed common metals, growth of biological tissue into or out of metallic substances, as well as isotopic ratios not of this world. Dr. Leir has also been involved in investigations of other areas of Ufology involving physical evidence. He has traveled to Brazil and performed exhaustive research into the Varginha, Brazil case. In 2003 Dr. Leir worked with one of the worlds leading geneticists and the National Institute for Discovery Science (NIDS) on a DNA study pertaining to evidence collected in a famous California Alien Abduction Case. Dr. Leir was a recent participant (NOV. 2007) in an international press conference held at the National Press Club in Washington D.C. Evidence from thirteen Military officers, pertaining to their experiences with UFO.s was presented to a worldwide media.
