The first reported 2006 Canadian crop circle (in barley) was discovered on July 31st in the rural farming community of Armstrong, British Columbia about 140 miles north of the Washington State/Canadian border, by a local pilot. Not only was the shape of this formation rather peculiar, it appears to exactly replicate the bizarre shape of a UFO observed in the hours just before dawn of the day the crop circle was found. Further, many blackened seed-heads–which look very like seed-heads found in a 2010 Dutch circle (proven in lab tests to have been carbonized: http://www.bltresearch.com/robbert/seedheads2011.php)–were also discovered in this Armstrong crop formation.
Due to the highly unusual behavior of his dogs, which refused to go outside as usual around July 25-26th, the Armstrong farmer thinks his circle may have occurred then, although the winter-wheat in the adjacent field was being cut at this time and the circle was not seen. And, because of the very solid eyewitness report from a Kelowna resident of a brilliant, essentially circular aerial object with what appeared to be very bizarre, attached “antennae-like” strings of equally-bright lights—an object which looked “exactly like” the crop circle found later that same day in Armstrong–we have to wonder is there a connection?

Sandra Langin, the wife of a local lawyer and mother of two grown children, had moved to Kelowna (about 45 miles south of Armstrong, B.C.) from Alberta, about two years earlier. In our telephone conversations she sounded both educated and quite precise in her recounting of the event. She reports that she did not wake up other members of her family during her sighting as she was afraid that, if she turned away from the window, the object would disappear.
At about 4:15 am on the morning of July 31st she was awakened by her dog barking outside. Going to the window to see what was disturbing the dog she noticed a “very large, bright white light toward the North East” in front of Black Mountain. Using a spruce tree across the road from her house to determine the object’s position and movements, she noted that when she first saw the light it was about half-way up the tree and in front of the mountain. It then “moved slowly behind the tree and upwards toward its top, almost like it was floating.” From then on it moved only slightly, to the right side of the tree, still floating upwards until 5:30 am, by which time it was very high in the early morning sky.
It was not only the large size and brilliance of the light (larger and brighter than the full moon when first seen down low in front of the mountain) that suggested this object was something out of the ordinary. Although the light was so bright she could not be certain of its shape, even through binoculars, it appeared to be basically round—but with smaller lights coming out of the top of the main sphere. In an attempt to describe these smaller lights she said they looked like “strings of lights” which were “attached” to the larger object, shaped like “wires or antennae which were lit up.”

She observed no light coming from beneath the object, no column of light shining down toward the ground—just these two very strange, distinct, “antennae-like” strings of light apparently attached to the brilliant circular area of the UFO. As dawn approached the bizarre-looking object, now fairly high in the sky, became invisible.
Subsequently, on Friday, August 4th, she was genuinely shocked to see, upon opening her morning paper, a photo of the Armstrong, B.C. crop circle on the front page—the design of which exactly replicated the unexplained lights which had disturbed her dog and which she had watched for more than an hour just before dawn only a few days earlier.
As she stated emphatically to me on the phone, the photo showed the crop circle “was identical in shape to the object I had watched in the sky over Black Mountain. I was so amazed that I started shaking, knowing that what I had seen was now in the form of a crop circle.”

Armstrong is approximately 45 minutes (by car) North of Mrs. Langin’s location in Kelowna and the bizarre aerial object seen by her the morning of July 31st was toward the East. Was the anomalous lighted object she watched in the pre-dawn hours of July 31—which had exactly the same bizarre shape as this crop circle–related to the circle’s creation? Or was the farmer’s observation of the peculiar behavior of his dogs on or around the morning of July 25-26th an indication that the circle formed then? And, if the farmer’s idea is correct, why wasn’t the circle seen during the harvesting of the winter-wheat crop on July 27th?
One wonders why such a unique UFO was was seen in the same general area as the equally unique crop circle. Could this same UFO have been in the area on July 25th or 26th also? So far, no one else has reported seeing the same strangely-shaped lights in the sky in this area but, for Mrs. Langin, the precise similarity of design present in the two events is unmistakable, clearly indicating a connection to her: “having that crop circle appear is proof enough for me.”
Mrs. Langin told her family that she had seen what she thought might be a UFO and she then reported the light to a local TV station. A reporter she spoke with told her that what she had seen was “Venus,” and that she would see it the next morning if she got up early again. She did get up at 4:30 am the morning of August 4th and looked again through the same window—but this time no light (Venus or otherwise) was present.

Circle center before being walked on shows a soft spiraled swirl & no breakage of the dry flattened plants—something impossible to duplicate in dry crop, which always splits and/or breaks if mechanical pressure is applied.

As mentioned earlier blackened seed-heads, although occasionally found in crop circles and always described as being “burned,” are in fact known to have been actually burned in only one other crop circle—one in Hoeven, Holland on August 2, 2010. In that case plant samples were taken and sent to BLT so we could conclusively prove by laboratory analyses (see link to Dutch report in first para) that the seed-heads were, in fact, burned–that carbonization was present.
The blackening of plants sometimes observed in crop circles is usually caused by an opportunistic fungus (http://www.bltresearch.com/labreports/mission1.php) called Ustilago—and although we received no samples from the Armstrong circle the plant photos from that event are more similar to the Dutch case than to many photos we’ve been sent of blackened plants from other cases.

The Dutch crop circle was found by Robbert van den Broeke, the only known person anywhere in the world who somehow “knows” exactly when and where the circles in his area are occurring (http://www.bltresearch.com/robbert.php), and he reported seeing a “flash of light” immediately over the field in which he and a friend then found the Aug. 2, 2010 circle. And although Robbert has seen, occasionally, UFOs actually “making” crop circles (a new report about this to be posted on the BLT website soon), in this case he saw only the flash of light.

There is another similarity between the 2010 Dutch circle and the one in 2006 in Armstrong. Both of these formations had quite a bit of randomly-downed crop in the same field as the “geometric” circle….something that scientific testing of the plants in many of these randomly-downed areas has shown to often be present in genuine (not mechanically flattened) circles: see Item #2, “Non-Geometric Crop Formations” here: http://www.bltresearch.com/otherfacts.php.

There is another curiosity regarding this 2006 Armstrong crop circle. Visitors to the formation on or about August 8th spent some time inside it that night and one of them, Monica Keough, took a number of photos of the full moon—and one of her shots show a strange green object in the sky near the moon.
Everyone initially thought the photo showed the full moon and probably Mars– but Mars would not have been so large (nearly as large as the full moon) nor would it be green. Also, the green object was not visible to the photographer or the other people with her in the crop circle, and it did not appear in the several other photos of the moon taken by Ms. Keough that night.
The first image below shows the original photo (cropped only and labeled) of the full moon and the unknown green sphere at about the same altitude.
The second image is the same photo, cropped and labeled and with Photoshop Elements’ “autofix” also applied–which amplifies the purplish ring around the green unidentified aerial object. I think it’s reasonable for us to call this green object also (as had Mrs. Langin labeled her Kelowna object) a “UFO,” or at least a “UAP” (unidentified aerial phenomenon)–an increasingly preferred term used by academically-oriented investigators of unidentified aerial phenomena.

Various strange phenomena have been reported in the provinces of Canada for many years. Saskatchewan was, during the 1990s, rather a “hot spot” and many crop circles discovered there were investigated, well-sampled and analyzed—the lab results consistently producing data for which current scientific knowledge has yet to provide an “acceptable” explanation.
In August of 2006 we were informed of another strange mark in the Canadian landscape, this time in the rolling prairie grasslands of SW Saskatchewan on the east side of the Cascade Mountain Range, near an entropic prairie lake called Buffalo Pound Lake. First seen on August 20th, from the air one would simply assume that a motorbike of some sort had created the undulating “U-shaped” depression in the prairie grasses (next to a well-used manmade track)….but closer examination suggests otherwise.
Aerial showing overall double “U” shape of mark (top) and ground photo of one section, showing highly unusual “lay” inside the marks.
As the photos (photographer unknown) show, the grasses flattened in these “U” tracks are laid across the tracks….just as was the barley in the long straight pathway of the Armstrong, B.C. crop circle. Since flattened plants in pathways which are part of crop circles are usually laid either up or down the path, finding two land “imprints” with this same highly unusual lay pattern–within a month of each other and both in southern Canada is definitely odd.
Close-up shots show plants in “U” tracks at Buffalo Pound Lake are laid across the track and from both sides (arrows).
Whether there is a relationship between these multiple unexplained events in southern Canada in late July-August, 2006 we don’t know. We have a reliable report and clear description of a uniquely-shaped UFO and an equally bizarre-looking crop circle discovered 2 days later, whose shape apparently duplicates the UFO’s visible characteristics. In the Armstrong, B.C. crop circle (in barley) there is evidence of burnt seed-heads, as well as a very unusual lay-pattern in the straight pathway section of the formation…and we have the additional (and regularly-reported in other crop circle events) information that the farmers’ dogs behaved very peculiarly shortly before the crop formation was discovered in the field next to the farmer’s house. And there is also the clear photo taken inside the crop circle not long after it was discovered, showing an invisible (to the naked eye) strange green sphere close to and at the same altitude as the full moon.
And then, within the same month and only 600 miles +/- to the East, a large “U”-shaped path in the prairie grasses of southern Saskatchewan is found–which is subsequently discovered to have been flattened in the same very rare manner as was the pathway in the Armstrong, B.C. crop formation.
It is my bet that other strange things were seen in these same areas—events which, if we were aware of them all, might help us reach an understanding of these, and other similar, peculiar occurrences. With the advent of the internet more and more such information is becoming available to a much larger public and I, for one, have great hope that this new tool of communication will help us all in our search for answers.

Is Stephen Hawking right about aliens?
Stephen Hawking thinks that making contact with aliens would be a very bad idea indeed. But with new, massive telescopes, we humans are stepping up the search. Have we really thought this through?
In February 2008, Nasa sent the Beatles song, Across the Universe, across the universe. Pointing the telescopes in its Deep Space Network towards the north star, Polaris, astronomers played out their short cosmic DJ set, hoping that it might be heard by intelligent aliens during its 430-year journey to the star.
The hunt for intelligent species outside Earth may be a staple of literature and film – but it is happening in real life, too. Nasa probes are on the lookout for planets outside our solar system, and astronomers are carefully listening for any messages being beamed through space. How awe-inspiring it would be to get confirmation that we are not alone in the universe, to finally speak to an alien race. Wouldn’t it?
Well no, according to the eminent physicist Stephen Hawking. “If aliens visit us, the outcome would be much as when Columbus landed in America, which didn’t turn out well for the Native Americans,” Hawking has said in a forthcoming documentary made for the Discovery Channel. He argues that, instead of trying to find and communicate with life in the cosmos, humans would be better off doing everything they can to avoid contact.
Hawking believes that, based on the sheer number of planets that scientists know must exist, we are not the only life-form in the universe. There are, after all, billions and billions of stars in our galaxy alone, with, it is reasonable to expect, an even greater number of planets orbiting them. And it is not unreasonable to expect some of that alien life to be intelligent, and capable of interstellar communication. So, when someone with Hawking’s knowledge of the universe advises against contact, it’s worth listening, isn’t it?
Seth Shostak, a senior astronomer at the Seti Institute in California, the world’s leading organisation searching for telltale alien signals, is not so sure. “This is an unwarranted fear,” Shostak says. “If their interest in our planet is for something valuable that our planet has to offer, there’s no particular reason to worry about them now. If they’re interested in resources, they have ways of finding rocky planets that don’t depend on whether we broadcast or not. They could have found us a billion years ago.”
If we were really worried about shouting in the stellar jungle, Shostak says, the first thing to do would be to shut down the BBC, NBC, CBS and the radars at all airports. Those broadcasts have been streaming into space for years – the oldest is already more than 80 light years from Earth – so it is already too late to stop passing aliens watching every episode of Big Brother or What Katie and Peter Did Next.
The biggest and most active hunt for life outside Earth started in 1960, when Frank Drake pointed the Green Bank radio telescope in West Virginia towards the star Tau Ceti. He was looking for anomalous radio signals that could have been sent by intelligent life. Eventually, his idea turned into Seti (standing for Search for Extra Terrestrial Intelligence), which used the downtime on radar telescopes around the world to scour the sky for any signals. For 50 years, however, the sky has been silent.
There are lots of practical problems involved in hunting for aliens, of course, chief among them being distance. If our nearest neighbours were life-forms on the (fictional) forest moon of Endor, 1,000 light years away, it would take a millennium for us to receive any message they might send. If the Endorians were watching us, the light reaching them from Earth at this very moment would show them our planet as it was 1,000 years ago; in Europe that means lots of fighting between knights around castles and, in north America, small bands of natives living on the great plains. It is not a timescale that allows for quick banter – and, anyway, they might not be communicating in our direction.
The lack of a signal from ET has not, however, prevented astronomers and biologists (not to mention film-makers) coming up with a whole range of ideas about what aliens might be like. In the early days of Seti, astronomers focused on the search for planets like ours – the idea being that, since the only biology we know about is our own, we might as well assume aliens are going to be something like us. But there’s no reason why that should be true. You don’t even need to step off the Earth to find life that is radically different from our common experience of it.
“Extremophiles” are species that can survive in places that would quickly kill humans and other “normal” life-forms. These single-celled creatures have been found in boiling hot vents of water thrusting through the ocean floor, or at temperatures well below the freezing point of water. The front ends of some creatures that live near deep-sea vents are 200C warmer than their back ends.
“In our naive and parochial way, we have named these things extremophiles, which shows prejudice – we’re normal, everything else is extreme,” says Ian Stewart, a mathematician at Warwick University and author of What Does A Martian Look Like? “From the point of view of a creature that lives in boiling water, we’re extreme because we live in much milder temperatures. We’re at least as extreme compared to them as they are compared to us.”
On Earth, life exists in water and on land but, on a giant gas planet, for example, it might exist high in the atmosphere, trapping nutrients from the air swirling around it. And given that aliens may be so out of our experience, guessing motives and intentions if they ever got in touch seems beyond the realm’s even of Hawking’s mind.
Paul Davies, an astrophysicist at Arizona State University and chair of Seti’s post-detection taskforce, argues that alien brains, with their different architecture, would interpret information very differently from ours. What we think of as beautiful or friendly might come across as violent to them, or vice versa. “Lots of people think that because they would be so wise and knowledgeable, they would be peaceful,” adds Stewart. “I don’t think you can assume that. I don’t think you can put human views on to them; that’s a dangerous way of thinking. Aliens are alien. If they exist at all, we cannot assume they’re like us.”
Answers to some of these conundrums will begin to emerge in the next few decades. The researchers at the forefront of the work are astrobiologists, working in an area that has steadily marched in from the fringes of science thanks to the improvements in technology available to explore space.
Scientists discovered the first few extrasolar planets in the early 1990s and, ever since, the numbers have shot up. Today, scientists know of 443 planets orbiting around more than 350 stars. Most are gas giants in the mould of Jupiter, the smallest being Gliese 581, which has a mass of 1.9 Earths. In 2009, Nasa launched the Kepler satellite, a probe specifically designed to look for Earth-like planets.
Future generations of ground-based telescopes, such as the proposed European Extremely Large Telescope (with a 30m main mirror), could be operational by 2030, and would be powerful enough to image the atmospheres of faraway planets, looking for chemical signatures that could indicate life. The Seti Institute also, finally, has a serious piece of kit under construction: the Allen Array (funded by a $11.5m/£7.5m donation from Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen) has, at present, 42 radio antennae, each six metres in diameter, but there are plans, if the Seti Institute can raise another $35m, to have up to 300 radio dishes.
In all the years that Seti has been running, it has managed to look carefully at less than 1,000 star systems. With the full Allen Array, they could look at 1,000 star systems in a couple of years.
Shostak is confident that, as telescope technology keeps improving, Seti will find an ET signal within the next two decades. “We will have looked at another million star systems in two dozen years. If this is going to work, it will work soon.”
And what happens if and when we detect a signal? “My strenuous advice will be that the coordinates of the transmitting entity should be kept confidential, until the world community has had a chance to evaluate what it’s dealing with,” Davies told the Guardian recently. “We don’t want anybody just turning a radio telescope on the sky and sending their own messages to the source.”
But his colleague, Shostak, says we should have no such concerns. “You’ll have told the astronomical community – that’s thousands of people. Are you going to ask them all not to tell anybody where you’re pointing your antenna? There’s no way you could do that.
“And anyway, why wouldn’t you tell them where [the alien lifeform] is? Are you afraid people will broadcast their own message? They might do that but, remember, The Gong Show has already been broadcast for years.” And, for that matter, the Beatles.
The Truth about Those “Alien Alloys” in The New York Times UFO Story
Is the government really stockpiling materials in a Nevada building that scientists cannot identify?
What to make of a Las Vegas building full of unidentified alloys?
The New York Times published a stunning story (Dec. 16) revealing that the U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) had, between 2007 and 2012, funded a $22 million program for investigating UFOs. The story included three revelations that were tailored to blow readers’ minds:
1. Many high-ranking people in the federal government believe aliens have visited planet Earth.
2. Military pilots have recorded videos of UFOs with capabilities that seem to outstrip all known human aircraft, changing direction and accelerating in ways no fighter jet or helicopter could ever accomplish.
3. In a group of buildings in Las Vegas, the government stockpiles alloys and other materials believed to be associated with UFOs.
Points one and two are weird, but not all that compelling on their own: The world already knew that plenty of smart folks believe in alien visitors, and that pilots sometimes encounter strange phenomena in the upper atmosphere – phenomena explained by entities other than space aliens, such as a weather balloon, a rocket launch or even a solar eruption.
Point No. 3, though – those buildings full of alloys and other materials – that’s a little harder to hand wave away. Is there really a DOD cache full of materials from out of this world?
One of the authors of the Times report, Ralph Blumenthal, had this to say on MSNBC about the alloys: “They have, as we reported in the paper, some material from these objects that is being studied so that scientists can find what accounts for their amazing properties, this technology of these objects, whatever they are.” When asked what the materials were, Blumenthal responded, “They don’t know. They’re studying it, but it’s some kind of compound that they don’t recognize.”
Here’s the thing, though: The chemists and metallurgists Live Science spoke to – experts in identifying unusual alloys – don’t buy it.
“I don’t think it’s plausible that there’s any alloys that we can’t identify,” Richard Sachleben, a retired chemist and member of the American Chemical Society’s panel of experts, told Live Science. “My opinion? That’s quite impossible.”
Alloys are mixtures of different kinds of elemental metals. They’re very common – in fact, Sachleben said, they’re more common on Earth than pure elemental metals are – and very well understood. Brass is an alloy. So is steel. Even most naturally occurring gold on Earth is an alloy made up of elemental gold mixed with other metals, like silver or copper. [8 Important Elements You’ve Never Heard Of]
“There are databases of all known phases [of metal], including alloys,” May Nyman, a professor in the Oregon State University Department of Chemistry, told Live Science. Those databases include straightforward techniques for identifying metal alloys.
If an unknown alloy appeared, Nyman said it would be relatively simple to figure out what it was made of.
For crystalline alloys – those in which the mixture of atoms forms an ordered structure – researchers use a technique called X-ray diffraction, Nyman said.
“The X-ray’s wavelength is about the same size as the distance between the atoms [of crystalline alloys],” Nyman said, “so that means when the X-rays go into a well-ordered material, they diffract [change shape and intensity] – and from that diffraction [pattern] you can get information that tells you the distance between the atoms, what the atoms are, and how well-ordered the atoms are. It tells you all about the arrangement of your atoms.”
With noncrystalline, amorphous alloys, the process is a bit different, but not by much.
“These are all very standard techniques in research labs, so if we had such mysterious metals, you could take it to any university where research is done, and they could tell you what are the elements and something about the crystalline phase within a few hours,” Nyman said.
“There are no alloys that are sitting in some warehouse that we cannot figure out what they are. In fact, it’s pretty simple, and any reasonably good metallurgical grad student can do it for you,” he said.
Nyman said that if metals did fall from some mysterious aircraft, some forensics experiments would quickly answer a lot of questions about that aircraft. [UFO Mysteries: These Sightings Have Never Been Solved]
“How has the hunk of metal changed?” Nyman said. “From my scientist’s perspective, that’s the kind of question I’d be asking. Maybe, if it has to do with world politics, and we want to know where the metal comes from, maybe there’s some analysis that can lead you to where it was mined, or what country uses that particular alloy, that kind of thing.”
If the aircraft had come from space, Nyman said, that travel would leave telltale signs in the metal as well, in the form of spacefaring debris and ionization (changes to the electrical charges of the substance’s atoms).
Even if a chunk of alloy that hadn’t been seen before did fall to Earth from outer space, both Nyman and Sachleben agreed that it wouldn’t necessarily have come from an alien craft. In fact, Sachleben said, alloys strike the planet regularly – space-traversing alloys like those found in fairly common nickel-iron meteorites – leaving behind telltale signs. The meteor that wiped out the dinosaurs was even identified by the rare-Earth metals it left behind in certain geological formations in Earth’s crust.
It’s important to point out that while Blumenthal did go on cable news and say the alloys were unidentifiable mysteries, helping to spur speculation, that’s not what his article actually stated. Here’s the full quote from Saturday’s piece:
“The company [involved in the DOD research] modified buildings in Las Vegas for the storage of metal alloys and other materials that … program contractors said had been recovered from unidentified aerial phenomena. Researchers also studied people who said they had experienced physical effects from encounters with the objects and examined them for any physiological changes. In addition, researchers spoke to military service members who had reported sightings of strange aircraft.”
From this statement, there’s no actual sign that there’s anything unusual about the alloys themselves. All the Times wrote was that the DOD researchers tasked with finding weird UFO stuff collected some metal, interviewed some people who had claimed startling experiences with it, and decided that it was UFO-related.
In an email to Live Science regarding these metal alloys, Blumenthal said, “We printed as much as we were able to verify. Can’t go beyond that.”
As for whether there’s an explanation at least for the metals themselves, Sachleben said: “There’s not as many mysteries in science as people like to think. It’s not like we know everything – we don’t know everything. But most things we know enough about to know what we don’t know.”

Astronaut Buzz Aldrin Passes Lie Detector Test About Alien Encounter
Aldrin reportedly passed the lie detector test during his recollection of his close encounter with alien life during the 1969 Apollo 11 mission to the moon.
He was part of the test that also analyzed interviews from astronauts Al Worden, Edgar Mitchell and Gordon Cooper.
Experts said their results prove they were ‘completely convinced’ that their claims of alien life were genuine.
Apollo 11 astronaut Buzz Aldrin has reportedly passed a lie detector test after recalling his apparent encounter with alien life during the historic 1969 mission to the moon.
Aldrin, 88, was a part of the test that also analyzed interviews from astronauts Al Worden, Edgar Mitchell and Gordon Cooper.
Recorded interviews of the astronauts were tested using the latest technology at the Institute of BioAcoustic Biology in Albany, Ohio.

Aldrin (left on the moon and right in 2018), 88, participated in the test along with astronauts Al Worden, Edgar Mitchell and Gordon Cooper
Experts claim their results prove they were ‘completely convinced’ that their claims of aliens were genuine, according to the Daily Star.
Aldrin has always maintained he spotted a UFO on the way to the moon.
‘There was something out there that was close enough to be observed, sort of L-shaped,’ Aldrin, who is the second human to set foot on the moon, recalled.
The Institute of BioAcoustic Biology conducted an analysis of the astronauts’ voice patterns as they spoke about their encounters.
BioAcoustic’s Sharry Edwards told the Daily Star that their tests revealed Aldrin is sure he saw the UFO even though his logical mind ‘cannot explain it’.
Last year, Apollo 15 pilot Al Worden, 86, told Good Morning Britain that he saw extra-terrestrials during his mission.

Experts claim their results prove they were ‘completely convinced’ that signs of alien life they claimed to have witnessed were genuine. Al Worden is pictured (center) next to astronauts David Scott (left) and James Irwin (right)
Voice recordings of NASA astronauts Edgar Mitchell and Gordon Cooper, who are both deceased, were also analyzed.
In a 2009 interview, Mitchell, who was a part of the Apollo 14 mission, claimed he saw multiple UFOs.
Cooper had previously described trying to chase a cluster of objects.
According to the Daily Star, the tests revealed that Cooper and Mitchell believed they were telling the truth.
The technology is still top-secret, but it has been claimed that these tests are more reliable than current lie detector tests.
