(OLLI AT UVM PRESENTS) The Mysterious Crop Circles: Messages from Beyond? with Fred Fengler

Jul 23, 2014
5:30 pm to 8:00 pm
Waterman Bldg 456

Since the early 1980s, mysterious but complex and beautiful patterns have been appearing overnight in the wheat fields of British farmers. Investigators from many different disciplines visit the fields of Southern England every summer to ponder the meaning and purpose of these formations. Some scientists say they can all be explained as the work of human artists. But most researchers claim they are too intricate and precise and that the process used to create them is unknown. Though less frequently observed, these baffling patterns appear in fields around the world including the U.S. Have they appeared in Vermont?
