Overview

Though they are not just a recent phenomenon, during the past few decades new crop circles have been reported worldwide at the rate of about one per day, creating considerable controversy over their origin and cause. Theoretical experimental physicist Eltjo Haselhoff presents a comprehensive overview of these beautiful and mysterious formations. His research includes a scientific investigation of germination anomalies, the dead fly enigma, peculiar deposits, geometrical ratios, and balls of light. In addition, he reports on the first-person accounts of people who have witnessed their appearance and even ventures into the study of the psychic perspective. Haselhoff comes to some fascinating conclusions in the last chapter, 'Circular Arguments.' After reading this book, you will definitely agree with Conclusion Six: 'Something very strange going on.'

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Eltjo Haselhoff is a remarkable rarity in the controversial arena of paranormal research—he has the qualifications and ability to blend hard science and metaphysics without compromising either. In so doing, he remains eminently credible to a world that craves statistics and repeatable tests, while being unafraid of deeper speculation. Anyone who has ever dismissed the entire crop circle phenomenon as a man-made joke needs to read this excellent book. They may be shocked by the utterly convincing case he makes for its authenticity as a genuinely unexplained mystery."
—Andy Thomas, author of Vital Signs: A Complete Guide to the Crop Circle Mystery and Why It Is NOT a Hoax

Meet the Author

Eltjo Haselhoff has written the first book on crop circles based on scientific evidence. His research, as introduced in the first chapter, 'A Great But Most Tangible Mystery,' addresses some of the most concrete crop circle phenomena: the dead fly enigma, curious deposits, germination anomalies, and balls of light. Studies with mathematical formulas allow any reader to analyze and verify, or dispute, the author's findings. For those interested in a more metaphysical approach, the author provides 'The Psychic Perspective: Earth Forces, Aliens, Gate to Another World, and Messages from the Cosmos.' Diagrams and color photographs throughout the book guarantee a fascinating journey through the world of crop circles even for those not inclined toward laboratories and numbers.

Eltjo Haselhoff has a Ph.D. in Theoretical and Experimental Physics. He has been examining the crop circle phenomenon for over ten years, and has personally visited hundreds of crop circles. Born and educated in the Netherlands, Dr. Haselhoff has worked at many research institutes, including Los Alamos National Laboratories. He has published dozens of articles in peer-reviewed scientific journals, such as The Journal of Applied Physics, and The Physical Review. His most recent article appeared in the prestigious, international scientific journal, Physiologia Plantarum.
