The construction, geography and astronomy of English megalithic sites: why did those mysterious “crop artists” draw a “seven-pointed star” in a field across from Stonehenge on July 7-8, 2016?  

A new and remarkable crop picture appeared in a field across the road from Stonehenge in southern England, apparently on the night of July 7-8, 2016. An aerial photograph of this wonderful crop picture is shown at upper left in the slide below:  


At lower left, we can see a matching “explanatory diagram” for the construction of Stonehenge nearby. This diagram has seven-fold symmetry, and features a seven-pointed star. It was taken from an article entitled “Stonehenge: Marriage of the Sun and Moon” by Robin Heath (see  

On the right-hand side of this slide, we show a black-and-white sketch of the new crop picture. Right away we can see a good fit to Heath’s explanatory diagram, since both images contain large “seven-pointed stars”. There is also a good fit to a small “seven-pointed star” near the centre. Those two “stars” are staggered by 1/14 of a circle relative to one another.  

Clearly one message from this new crop picture seems to be: “a seven-pointed star was used in the construction of Stonehenge long ago”.  

This crop picture in addition shows a clever code or message in its outer parts. They seem to read “M-I-R” in decimal ASCII. That is a word which means “world” or “peace” in Russian. This clever and subtle code will be explained further below.

Did the builders of Stonehenge use a “seven-pointed star” during certain phases of construction long ago?  

An independent analysis by Professor David Gregg has likewise suggested that a “seven-pointed star” was used, during one phase of the construction of Stonehenge in ancient times (see DavidGregg  ). By studying his diagram, we can see how 56 “Aubrey holes” around the outside may be divided into seven equal parts. Such a division creates the impression of seven-fold symmetry. Those “Aubrey holes” were used to predict solar or lunar eclipses (see stonehenge eclipses). If we trace the path of that “seven-pointed star” in towards the centre, we find that an inner “Sarsen circle” of stones was placed exactly where any two “arms” of the “seven-pointed star” first intersect.  

The schematic diagrams of Stonehenge as made by other authors also show a good fit to this new crop picture. For example, a crescent-shaped series of “trilithons” near its centre (see old-plans-of-stonehenge) match a large “crescent” shape in the crop picture, which was drawn “under” its large “seven-pointed star”. The “crescent” shape in this crop picture was oriented precisely in the field, so as to match a crescent-shaped outer border for Stonehenge nearby (please see long-range aerial photographs on   stonehenge 2016).  

Furthermore, in most of these explanatory diagrams, as made by any author, we can see two rings of small, rectangular standing stones around the outside, which match “two borders” of “small squares” as drawn in crops. For example a series of “small dots” or thin serrated lines, around the outside of Heath’s explanatory diagram, just beyond the “points” of his large “seven-pointed star”, seem to resemble two outer borders of “small squares” in the new crop picture. What might this mean?  

A clever code around the outside, where “Aubrey holes” were once used to predict eclipses 

Long ago at Stonehenge, its outer border consisted of 7 x 8 = 56 “Aubrey holes”, which were used to predict solar or lunar eclipses. In the new crop picture, we can count 73 or 82 “small squares” in a corresponding location, within its first or second “outer borders” respectively.  

Why did those crop artists change the number of “small squares” along the outside, from 56 to 73 or 82? Quite plausibly, they may have been trying to provide us with a message in decimal ASCII code, by a scheme which was used in other crop pictures from the past, for example at Poirino, Italy on June 20, 2010 (see time2012bl).   

The geometric “numbers” in this new crop picture seem to read “7-7” (for July 7), then “73” and “82”, when going from its centre to its outer parts. If such numbers are regarded as “letters” in decimal ASCII (see, then we find a three-letter word “M-I-R” which means “world” or “peace” in Russian. Any interested reader may study the details of such coding in a slide posted above.  

Are they predicting “MIR” as “world peace”?  

Perhaps those crop artists are trying to tell us that they can predict, not only “eclipses” like at Stonehenge, but also a possibility for “MIR” or “world peace”? In these troubled times on Earth?  

The “lunar crescent” from this crop picture pointed toward an intersection of two roads nearby, rather than towards Stonehenge itself. Also, this crop picture appeared on a date when a crescent Moon was about to intersect (or conjunct) with Jupiter in Earth’s night sky. This might be regarded as a kind of “eclipse”.  

Sevens and more sevens: the geography and astronomy of English megalithic sites 

How does a number “7” enter into the geography or astronomy of English megalithic sites? We can study Robin Heath’s article to learn more (see

First, Avebury Ring was constructed at latitude (360o / 7) = 51.4286o N, which equals precisely one-seventh of a planetary circle.

“So exact is this figure, that I suggest it was no accident or coincidence. The ancient builders of Avebury had a technique to calculate latitude to within seconds of a degree.”

The latitude of Stonehenge at 51.1789o is just one-quarter (0.2497o) of a degree away from one-seventh of a planetary circle (51.4286o).

Also at Stonehenge, the location of a rising Sun on the northeast horizon is approximately one-seventh (51o) of a circle away from due North, on the summer solstice of June 20 or 21. It was marked there by a “Heel Stone” (see gallery-the-summer-solstice-as-seen-from-stonehenge).

Finally at Stonehenge, its inner “Sarsen circle” (just outside of a crescent-shaped ring of “trilithons”) may have once been constructed, by drawing a seven-pointed star from the outer “Aubrey holes” in towards its centre (see

“This Sarsen circle may have been located precisely, by drawing a ‘seven-sided star’ from an outer Aubrey circle in towards its centre. The seven ‘arms’ of such a ‘star’ cross at 100.8 feet from the centre, which is the mean diameter of the Sarsen circle.”

For all of these reasons, it makes good sense for those mysterious crop artists to have drawn a “seven-pointed star” next to Stonehenge on July 7, 2016. They confirmed for us how Stonehenge was once built, and they conveyed a message of “MIR” or “world peace”. Many modern people have lost the knowledge once possessed by their ancestors. This is why they cannot easily understand. If they read the new information presented here, perhaps some of them may understand then?

P.S. We would like to thank Robin Heath and David Gregg for their excellent research into the astronomy and geography of English megalithic sites, and Hugh Newman for his aerial and ground photographs of the new crop picture. 

P.S.S. The mathematician Amber Wing sent me this colourful diagram, which shows “seven-fold symmetry” within the new crop picture, at a series of different geometrical locations:
