Altair Deneb and Vega

by Rieks Schreuder

Using the Wiltshire landscape as a “canvas”: how the crop artists drew Nova Delphini 2013 in crops on August 13, one day before it was discovered on August 14 by an astronomer here on Earth 

Popular interest in Nova Delphini 2013 has soared, since it was first discovered by a Japanese astronomer, Koichi Itagak, on August 14 at 1800 UTC (see www.universetoday.com or www.space.com). 

Yet on the previous morning of August 13, a schematic “supernova” image (based on SN1987A) was drawn in crops near Hackpen Hill. This new crop picture clearly anticipated the real stellar explosion by one day, for when its light reached Earth (see comments                                                                                                                                                                                     

The new stellar nova lies close in Earth’s sky to a “summer triangle” of stars which includes Deneb, Vega and Altair. Let us see how these remarkable events came about?  

Using Google Earth, I found right away that the local landscape near Hackpen Hill resembles a “map of stars”:  

We can also see that the sky location of Nova Delphini 2013 matches exactly where a new “supernova” crop picture was found on the morning of August 13 (yellow asterisk).  

When we look more closely, we can also see that another crop picture which had appeared previously at Hackpen Hill on July 15, 2013 matches the sky location of Gienah, a nearby bright star in the constellation Cygnus:  

Finally we can see the relative locations of all five objects----three round clumps of trees, and two crop pictures---in this panoramic aerial photograph taken by Janet Ossebaard on August 15:  

Part of her photograph has been stretched and enhanced for colour and brightness, to show the relationships more clearly. Gienah is a giant orange star (magnitude 2), so it is not surprising that the crop artists drew it as larger than Nova Delphini 2013 (magnitude 4).  

There has been considerable discussion concerning a small seed-free region, which lies at the very centre of this new crop picture. Some people have suggested that might be where a pole was set down, so that local human artists could create a circular image using rope and boards?  

However we do not see any crushed plants in that small region. It seems to be more of a seed-free space, where no plants originally germinated. It could even be an intended part of the design, as the “centre of a supernova” before it exploded.  

In summary, unknown crop artists used the local landscape of Wiltshire as a “canvas”, to draw several astronomical images at Hackpen Hill: one on July 15, then another on August 13. Some people believe that all crop pictures are made by local humans with rope and boards. In which case, how did those local lads from Wiltshire anticipate the discovery of Nova Delphini 2013, one day before it was discovered by any astronomer here on Earth?

Appendix 1. Four dim stars which surround Gienah in Cygnus (the closest bright star to Nova Delphini in Earth’s sky) match exactly the first crop picture which appeared at Hackpen Hill on July 15, 2013  

Four dim stars surround the bright star Gienah or epsilon-Cygni in Earth’s sky. They are aligned toward a nearby Nova Delphini 2013 as shown below. A practically identical alignment of those “four dim stars” is seen in the field at Hackpen Hill, for a prior crop picture on July 15, 2013, as it relates to a more recent “supernova” crop picture on August 13, 2013:  

This means that the symbolic assignment of that prior crop picture on July 15 to the bright stat Gienah is unequivocal. Furthermore, it means that crop artists knew about Nova Delphini 2013 at least one month before its light was first detected on Earth, in the evening of August 14.

Red Collie (Dr. Horace R. Drew) 

P.S. We would like to thank Janet Ossebaard for all of her excellent photographs of new crop pictures, especially the ones shown above.






Part One: the novae and the village

For initial purposes I'll be using the following adaptation of the excellent photograph that Frank Lauman has kindly made available:- 

Fig. 1 

Although my first view of this formation gave me the impression that it wasn't manmade, I soon concluded that if I was going to analyse it I'd be presented with a real challenge: it was devoid of certain features I expect to find in a genuine circle. And when I roughly estimated its displacement from the centre of Silbury Hill's summit I also found that it didn't adhere to the pattern I'd identified in other formations this year [explained in my preceding articles]. 

So I knew that if I was going to unravel the meaning of this field edifice my knowledge and experience would be tested to the limit. However, a stunning insight by a seasoned researcher in this area handed me, in due course, the opening I'd been waiting for. … 

Red Collie claimed that Nova Delphini 2013 - found on August 14 at 18.00 UTC - was being alluded to in the formation on August 13 [the year's 225th day] and this excited me as soon as I encountered it [weeks after it had been put online!]. He believed that the necklace-like crop circle, which [as he demonstrated] resembled supernova 1987A both visually and in a more scientific way, was being linked to a different type of stellar explosion, a nova, that was first observed, in the constellation of Delphinus, just one day after the formation had been found. The relevant information is summarised in the Fig. below, which includes an adaptation of Bertold Zugelder's useful drawing, which I thank him for:- 

Fig. 2 

Although I now suspected that this theory holds the key to unlocking the formation's mystery I was aware that two fundamental questions still needed to be addressed. … 

1] Why should pedantic crop circle builders have displayed, in our fields, an image that's tied, in the indicated ways, to a supernova explosion if they had wanted to highlight a stellar event that represents a different and less intense stage of a star's lifecycle: Nova Delphini 2013

2] And why did those builders elect to create the circle, with its unique form, one day before the cited nova would be first observed on earth? 

My attention was now drawn to the fact that the quoted isotope of Titanium, which has a role in the supernova process, Titanium-44, possesses an atomic nucleus that comprises a total of 22 protons and 22 neutrons. I found this interesting, in the current context, because although Red Collie didn't refer to it directly, the formation is also made up of two distinct sets of 22. To demonstrate the point, I've repeated the aforementioned drawing below:- 

Fig. 3 

Although no-one could dispute that the formation comprises 22 circles, the description isn't complete: each circular zone of flattened crop merges with 2 hoop-like bands on its outside. So the whole area of flattened crop is really a single, but fragmented, ring with one sequence of 22 circular profiles on its inside and a bridging run of 22 hoop-like profiles on its outside, as shown in the Fig. below:- 

Fig. 4 

This reveals, then, that the formation could serve as a symbolic representation of the atomic nucleus of Titanium-44, which possesses an intimate group of 22 protons and 22 neutrons. 

This link between the crop circle and the isotope of Titanium that's closely associated with supernovae was so impressive, in fact, that I wondered if the depicted arrangement holds the answer to at least one of the questions I was grappling with. I therefore had no hesitation in investigating whether prime numbers could shed any light on the subject. … 

I labelled the circles and hoops, in Fig. 4, with the primes that correspond to the numbers currently there [I again didn't show the second set, to avoid numerical congestion in the Fig.] as depicted below:-

[Note: the prime corresponding to 5 is 7 (= 5p); the prime corresponding to 22 is 73 (= 22p)] 

Fig. 5 

The significance of this double occurrence of the first 22 prime numbers wasn't apparent until after I'd determined their overall total … 1426 [= 713+713]. 

Knowing that the formation had been first reported on day 225 of the year and - 1 day later - on day 226, Nova Delphini 2013 was first detected, I now noted an extraordinary relationship between these two events and the above arithmetic, and I've illustrated it below. … 

Fig. 6 

In the Fig., the earlier cited fact is first repeated i.e. when 1 is added to 225, the day the crop circle was discovered, we obtain 226, the day that Nova Delphini 2013 was discovered. 

But when 1 is similarly added to the other number we know is closely linked to the formation - 1426 [the sum of the two sets of 22 primes] - we obtain another factor that's unambiguously related to the described 226, the day of the nova's discovery i.e. the 226th prime [= 1427]. 

So by adding 1 to each of the 2 factors we know the formation is closely associated with, 225 [discovery day] & 1426 [derived from its link to Titanium-44, which is active in supernovae], respectively, we produce 2 numbers that are inextricably related to the day of the year when Nova Delphini 2013 was found: 226 [the day itself] and the 226th prime [1427]. 

Evidently, then, our recognition of the latter relationship between the formation's structure, which relates in 2 independent ways to known characteristics of supernovae explosions, and the discovery of the nova, 1 day after the circle was found at Hackpen Hill, provides us with an independent and important confirmation of Red Collie's original assertion. The formation was predicting, 1 day before the event, our discovery of Nova Delphini 2013 on day 226! … 

Knowing that there are some far reaching issues at stake here, I concluded that the crop circle builders must have been inviting us to find this conundrum, but I had no doubt that if that was the case they'd have been obliged to provide us with at least one other piece of information. They would have had to display, in the same field edifice, a prominent manifestation of the cited 226, so we'd know that the number does have a pivotal role in their communication, as I've suggested. And fortunately I didn't have to wait very long to find one. … 

On August 31, the year's 243rd day, marked changes to the formation were discovered and I'll be focussing on the respective details, and their implications, in the 2nd part of this article. One feature that needed little thought, however, was the fact that the structure now comprised 7 distinct circles of standing crop [3 continuous & 4 fragmented] as shown in the Fig. below, where I've adapted Zef Damon's drawing, which he has kindly allowed me to use:- 

Fig. 7 

Because of my current commitments to other projects, I didn't know, for some weeks, about this significant alteration to the formation. When I finally encountered it, however, I realised immediately that it was giving us even more than I'd expected. It happens to be the case that the number 226 [expressed as 226/100] played a key role in two other areas of my research, one of which relates to the distant past. And my studies had exposed a way of generating it, using a simple algorithm that's based on a prime our remote ancestors revered … 7

The algorithm can be conveniently described after we've placed the first 7 primes, in order, onto the lower half [as displayed] of the 7 circles in the above representation of the formation - starting with 1 [= 1p] on the outer circle, and ending with 13 [= 7p], on the innermost, thus:- 

Fig. 8 

Each of the 7 circles now has 2 numbers sitting on it, as follows [starting from the outside]:- 

1 & 1;  2 & 2;  3 & 3;  4 & 5;  5 & 7;  6 & 11;  7 & 13 

The products of these 7 numerical pairs are 1, 4, 9, 20, 35, 66 & 91, and their sum is … 226

As far as I was concerned, then, the glaring modification of the formation that was identified on August 31 represented, apart from anything else, a bold statement that the number 226 did indeed have a central role in the whole communication. And this conclusion strongly supports the idea I described earlier concerning those who built the Hackpen Hill circle [in its 2 stages] starting on the year's 225th day. … 

The ostensibly chance discovery, 1 day later, of Nova Delphini 2013, on the year's 226th day, must have been carefully engineered by them, presumably as some form of sign to humanity! 

I was also interested to note that when the cited 1 and 226 are juxtaposed they can infer 1226, because this number can be expressed as 2x613, or, 2px113p [i.e. the 2nd prime x the 113th]. 

And the product of the inferred 2 and 113 yields another manifestation of … 226

So having a time gap of 1 day, before day 226 - as occurs in the described relationship - can represent, through the logic of primes, a subtle way of highlighting the latter number, and I've illustrated the relationship in the Fig. below:- 

Fig. 9 

Having found this elementary way of generating the described 226, from the inferred 1226, its simplicity suggested that we'd been expected to find it. I therefore pondered over it. 

As it was evident that the 1226 can be expressed as the sum of the highlighted 226 and 1000, I now noted that the ratio of these factors, 226/1000, represents a decimal expression, .226, that's 1/10th of 2.26, the number that played the earlier cited key role in my former research. 

Furthermore, as the act of viewing the zero-like circle, from the 1 nova event, can generate a simple expression of the number 10, I knew that the product of this and the cited .226 yields the described 2.26 … but the process seemed too contrived to constitute reliable evidence! [Note: clearly, for this hypothetical situation, I am ignoring the fact that light from the crop circle would actually take a very long time indeed to reach the nova (and vice versa)] 

It then came to my attention, however, that the same act of viewing, from the 1 nova event [even weeks after it was found in the sky] the whole formation with its zero-like first circle and its later, zero-like form [ignoring the latter circle's new internal details] can infer another simple expression, this time of … 100. And as the nova was closely linked to the number 226 [the day it was discovered], as was the modified formation [explained earlier], it was apparent that the whole arrangement can infer the factor 2.26, as depicted in the symbolic Fig. below:- 

Fig. 10 

My recognition of this naïve but valid way of generating the factor 2.26 interested me greatly [for reasons that will soon be clear] but I had not the slightest doubt that, if we'd been invited to find it, the arrangement involved would also embody some form of tangible confirmation. I therefore set about looking for it in relationships that exist between the dates that the nova and the two versions of the formation were discovered: day 226; and days 225 & 243. … 

I knew that the time spans, in days, between the three dates, in order, are primes i.e. between days 225 & 226 is 1 [= 1p], and between days 226 & 243 is 17 [= 8p], and when I considered this simple relationship further I realised that it embodies the means of fabricating yet another manifestation of 2.26. … 

The juxtaposition of the cited 1 & 17 can infer 117 and this is 100 more than 17, which can be inferred by juxtaposing the respective circle tallies in the two versions of the formation … 1 [in the first] & 7 [in the second]. And by dividing the 226 by this inferred 100, we produce, as we now, the cited 2.26.

[Note: we have to exercise care when comparing numbers of 'circles' in different formations or, in different internal arrangements of the same formation. In this particular case, the first version of the formation had a circle-like rim of flattened crop (comprising discs and hoops) which encapsulated 1 circle (or circular arrangement) comprising 22 'tufts' of standing crop. And in the second version there were 7 circles (or circular arrangements) of standing crop.] 

I then expressed each date as the corresponding prime and checked for relevant relationships between the two groups: the nova; and the two versions of the formation. … 

It soon transpired that the sum of the 225th & 243rd primes, 2954 [= 1423+1531], exceeds the 226th, 1427, by a number, 1527, which can be expressed as … 226p + 100

In other words, I'd identified an intimate relationship, between the nova's date of discovery, day 226, and the dates of discovery of the two versions of the formation, which embodies an inferred 226 and 100 - knowing that the expression 226/100 yields 2.26

I also noted that the primes that correspond to the cited formation dates, 1423 and 1531, each comprise digits of sum, 10 [= 1+4+2+3 = 1+5+3+1], which can yield the factor 100 [= 102]. And when the nova's day of discovery, 226, is divided by this we produce another … 2.26

I've illustrated the respective relationships in the Fig. below:- 

Fig. 11 

I was now satisfied, then, that relationships between the nova and the two versions of the crop circle that existed had been intended - apart from anything else - to highlight the factor 2.26, which had had key roles in my earlier research. And as the number had now surfaced in such subtle ways in this investigation, I decided that I should shed light on those roles here. … 

Every crop circle enthusiast will recall the massive formation that appeared at Milk Hill, on the morning of August 12, 2001. Images of it can still be seen in a variety of esoteric outlets, including the internet, and to many people its majestic presence is as powerful today as ever. But even its keenest admirers will not be aware that it exhibited a set of simple but pertinent relationships with an event that had happened more than fifteen hundred years earlier, in a city whose magnificence and fame had once even eclipsed that of the formation: Rome. … 

The Milk Hill edifice comprised 410 circles [as I'll soon explain] and in the year 410 AD the Visigoth, Alaric the Great, sacked the once impregnable city, seizing what some people think was the biggest treasure ever assembled. Unfortunately, however, only unconfirmed rumours and claims describe what happened to this vast cache of riches as the rampant army migrated to new territories, including an area that's now part of southern France, Alaric having died in the course of the arduous journey. But knowing that it's a well-worn tactic of those who wish to keep the hiding place of a treasure secret to promulgate false claims about its whereabouts, I - and many others - considered the location of the hoard to be an open question. 

To understand what I believe was Milk Hill's contribution to the next part of the story we'll have to consider the following symbolic image, which shows a view of the circle, looking south, with the central meridian highlighted [I'd measured it as per the WGS 84 datum]:-

[Note: the whole formation was actually comprised of two structures: a small, isolated 'ring' near the field's eastern fence-line (noted and photographed, thankfully, by Peter Sorensen, but ignored by the majority of other people); and the main edifice, with its celebrated 409 circles. So the quota of circles in the whole formation was the aforementioned 410]. 

Fig. 12 

If we now replace the main structure with the number that represents its allotment of circles, 409, we obtain an arrangement that bears an obvious similarity to the decimal number .409, where the '.' is being provided by the small ring that so many people thought was irrelevant:- 

Fig. 13 

As the depicted meridian intersects the centre of the main structure [now occupied by most of the inferred .409] it doesn't need a leap of imagination to wonder if a meaningful relationship exists between the numbers involved … 1.851 & .409 … and their sum happens to be: 2.26

We now believe, of course, that 2.26 was also being defined in a Hackpen Hill formation of the year 2013. So two crop circles, whose respective appearances were separated by a period of 12 years + 1 day [from August 12, 2001, to, August 13, 2013] seem to have been alluding covertly to the same 3-digit, decimal number. Indeed, it isn't difficult to show that the quoted time span, expressed in the indicated manner, is itself linked to the described factor, in a way that can hardly be attributed to random chance, as illustrated in the Fig. below:- 

Fig. 14 

I would add that even when the cited time span is expressed in days, 4384 [= 365x12 + 3+1], it can be seen to relate to the current subject matter in an illuminating way. … I've explained in earlier articles on this site that, during my analyses of formations, I almost invariably find expressions of the number 6371 [which represents, in km, an up-to-date radius of the planet]. I was interested to discover, then, that this pivotally important factor exceeds the cited 4384 by … 1987 … which we know is the number employed to define the year that the supernova occurred, which the Hackpen Hill circle [Mark 1] was depicting [as Red Collie first showed]. 

We'll now return to my analysis of the Milk Hill formation. … 

If its cited manifestation of 2.26 is expressed in the same units as the meridian, which made the biggest contribution to its value i.e. degrees west, it defines another UK meridian and this one possesses an intriguing property. In relation to the International Zero-Meridian, through Greenwich, it's the mirror image of one that intersects not just the region of France that the Germanic invaders had occupied, after Alaric's death, but a former Visigothic citadel that has long been linked to treasure claims, Rennes-le-Château, as shown in the symbolic Fig. below. The enduring mystique surrounding this minuscule settlement has, over the years, triggered a torrent of popular books, including Dan Brown's best-selling novel The Da Vinci Code:- 

Fig. 15 

Furthermore, if we now return to the formation it isn't difficult to recognise that another, extraordinary dimension can be added to the depicted link to the French village, and the relationship we are then confronted with raises a number of very far reaching questions. …

The one feature of the crop circle that most people observe when they first see images of it is its 6 spokes [or the 6 segments between them]. And even when the fact is considered that the 1 massive structure is disposed alongside the 1 diminutive ring, to its east, it's evident that the arrangement can be considered to be a naïve depiction of the number 11, which happens to be the 6th prime. So no-one would dispute that 6 is the edifice's dominant number. 

But although it's evident that at the macro level the adjacent assemblies depict the 6th prime, it's just as clear that at the micro level the number 1409 can be seen, which is the 224th prime, and this is interesting because the edifice was found  on the year's 224th day [August 12], as illustrated below:- 

Fig. 16 

However, as soon as it's acknowledged that the juxtaposition of the two structures can depict the number 1409, it has to be accepted that the decimal number 1.409 could also be inferred. 

Indeed, we recognised earlier that .409 can be inferred by juxtaposing the minuscule ring, '.' with the 409; but it would also be true to say that juxtaposing the term '1 point', or '1.', with 409 can infer the cited 1.409, as illustrated below, where [for reasons that will soon be clear] I've repeated the previously described link to the 6th prime:- 

Fig. 17 

The shown intimacy between the inferred numbers 6 & 1.409 takes on a new dynamic when their product is determined, 8.454, because, when expressed in degrees, it has an exceedingly interesting property. … 

When I surveyed the formation, I found the latitude of its estimated centre to be: 51.376° N. And 8.454° is that centre's displacement from a line of latitude, 42.922° N, which intersects the cited meridian, 2.26° E, at a point that is located alongside Rennes-le-Château. Indeed, this point faces a site that I concluded, years ago, is the solution to the area's treasure enigma. The respective relationships are illustrated below:- 

Fig. 18 

I would add that barely a stone's throw from the defined point I had, during the early morning of Nov' 21, 1999, a stunning meeting with five individuals from another world [although they were clearly related to us genitically] as I've divulged both in lectures and on the radio. 

I'd obtained the details of this unique rendezvous - its date, time and location - beforehand by deciphering a set of ostensibly incomprehensible texts that had been appearing on the dining-room table of a Reading family, after the mother, her son and her sister had experienced an incident involving lost time at the start of their Florida holiday. Apart from anything else, this process demonstrated that the methodology I'd developed to unravel the often bizarre letter sequences confronting me, based on my perception of prime numbers, headed by 1, is sound. And I employ that same methodology today when I examine other creations of the described table text authors: crop formations. 

I know then, with absolute certainty, that the crop circle community, and similar groups, are correct to believe that we are being contacted by an extra-terrestrial intelligence, despite the disgraceful and pathetic indifference to the subject that's shown by governments, and many academics, all over the world. I would add that it is of interest that, at Hackpen Hill this year, our ET friends tied their extraordinary prediction, of the recent nova event, with the meridian that we now know intersects what I believe to be the treasure chamber at Rennes-le-Château, the very area they had chosen to meet three of the people from Reading and myself. 

I believe they want to say to humanity's inept and corrupt governments that if the crop circles hold the solution to this massive historical enigma then what other benefits do they harbour? And by putting the site's location firmly in the public domain, at Milk Hill and Hackpen Hill, they're helping to guarantee that any gold, jewels and precious relics that are extricated from there are used to alleviate global poverty and suffering and not to prop up a seriously flawed and unsustainable financial system that's leading us all to disaster. 

In the final part of this article I'll show that the Hackpen Hill structures - inclusive of the one that had appeared on July 15 - provide a series of links to the earth model I alluded to earlier. They also embody relationships to the centre of Silbury Hill's summit that exhibit clear links to their own structural forms, thereby elucidating other matters of interest. And my analysis provides a remarkable confirmation of one more of Red Collie's insights.
