unanswered questions about the new crop picture at Cheesefoot Head on
June 17, 2017 may be answered, if we study carefully its relation to
certain landscape features nearby
have said about the new crop picture at Cheesefoot Head: “It is very
puzzling! I can’t figure out what it means.” Actually, my friends, it is
easy to find a plausible and logical understanding for all aspects of
this crop picture, so long as we study it in the context of certain
landscape features nearby.
Appendix at the end of this article, we will even show how to calculate
some of its aspects mathematically, while using an 18-month, 20-day,
Aztec-Mayan calendar, given that there are 65 days from June 17 when it
appeared, until a partial solar eclipse in southern England on August
21. How can we do that? Because we understand what it means
symbolically. Please read on!
Why does the
new crop picture appear to be “spinning”?
all, if this crop picture really shows an 18-month “calendar” from the
ancient Aztec or Mayan cultures, why was it drawn as “spinning”? Now you
must learn something about how Aztec or Mayan calendars work. They are
often represented in terms of “two spinning wheels”, one inside of the
other. Those two “wheels” will then rotate or spin along 365 days of any
solar year, just like your automobile’s tires will rotate or spin along
the surface of a highway, in order to count the days or months (see
calendars include 20 days in every “month”, while one kind includes 18
months of 360 days, while another kind includes 13 months of 260 days.
The version shown in crops incudes 18 months of 20 days, to give 360
days in total per calendar cycle.
be the “surface” or “road” along which this crop-drawn “calendar” seems
to be spinning?
study the landscape to see where this crop picture was drawn, using
Google Earth at latitude 51.041o N, longitude 1.248o
W, we find that this crop-drawn “calendar” seems to be spinning
clockwise, along the lower surface of a large “horned serpent”
shape, which we can see clearly just above:
“clockwise” motion of our “calendar wheel” will eventually carry it from
that serpent’s “thin tail” on the right, to its “pointed head” on the
left. Currently as of June 17, it is about halfway along the “body” of
that landscape “serpent”.
currently in the ninth month of an 18-month Aztec-Mayan calendar, in the
fifth year after it began
Just to the
left of our landscape serpent’s “head”, we can see nine long “horizontal
stripes”. These match a Mayan Long Count calendar date of 0.4.9.17
for when the crop picture appeared on June 17, 2017. We are currently in
the ninth month of the fifth year of an Aztec-Mayan calendar, which
began on December 23, 2012, and in which there are 18 months of 20 days
per year (see
Calendar tools). This is presumably why the crop picture was drawn
halfway along the length of that horned serpent’s “body”, which would
represent one full calendar year of 18 months or 360 days.
We can see
very clearly here, close to the start of a nice video by Matthew
Williams (from time 0:20 of
www.youtube.com), how the crop picture was drawn halfway along a
line of trees on the right, which looks like a “horned serpent” when
studied from the air using Google Earth. Many plants may still be seen
standing intact within otherwise “flattened” parts of the crop picture,
which is a good sign that it was not made using “rope and boards”.
picture also looks like a “bright shining Sun”, which has been “partly
eclipsed” by the Moon
study this new crop picture carefully, using aerial drone photographs as
shown in the movie linked above, it seems almost as if a “bright shining
Sun”, which has been “partly eclipsed” by the “Moon”, is rolling along
the lower surface of a long “serpent” shape in the landscape nearby. One
calendar year in the Aztec-Mayan culture has18 months of 20 days, and so
this “eclipsed Sun” shows 18 “light rays” around the outside.
We will next
see a partial eclipse of the Sun in England during the late afternoon of
August 21, 2017.
“eclipsed Sun” crop picture, drawn near West Kennett Long Barrow on July
13, 2004, also showed 18 “light rays” around the outside (see
crop picture meant to remind us of an ancient Aztec-Mayan legend,
concerning the return of “Q” or “Quetzalcoatl”?
the crop artists go to so much trouble, just to remind us that, in June
of 2017, we are halfway through the fifth year of an Aztec-Mayan
calendar, which began on December 23, 2012?
study the landscape near Cheesefoot Head on an even broader scale, again
using Google Earth, we can see several interesting features just above.
First on the left above, we can see the large head and neck of a
“friendly serpent”, who seems to be “looking down” on the crop picture
as it has been drawn:
Next in the
centre above, we can see a large capital letter “Q”, toward which
the “partly eclipsed Sun” from this crop picture seems to point (along
field tramlines). The top of that letter “Q” was not quite
complete, so I added another green, curved line for explanatory
purposes. Lastly on the right above, we can see the small, white image
of a “serpent descending”, which is outlined by a white box.
All of these
landscape images remind us of a legend from ancient Mayan or Aztec
times, that their beloved leader “Q” or “Quetzalcoatl”, also
known as “Kukulkan”, would metaphorically “descend” from the sky to
earth, at some time in the future after 2012 A.D. (see
pictures over the years seem to have related to this ancient legend
have seen many important crop pictures over the years, which seem to
have been made by the unseen Quetzalcoatl or his associates, for example
a “Quetzalcoatl Headdress” on July 5, 2009, it might be wise to take
such ancient legends seriously?

either side, while the schematic face of a “feathered serpent” could
also be seen, peering out from two nested crescent or “eclipse” shapes

what might happen then? What a great year for “crop circles” it has been

Precise calculation from this crop-drawn “rotating calendar wheel” of a
local azimuth for sunset on August 21, 2017, during a partial solar
eclipse in southern England
crop picture at Cheesefoot Head is oriented in the field, so that its
“partly eclipsed Sun” motif points along crop tramlines at 13o
east of due North, as measured using Google Earth.
June 17 when it appeared, until a partial solar eclipse on August 21,
there will be 65 days. Given an Aztec-Mayan calendar with
20 days per month, the “calendar wheel” from this crop picture should
“rotate” along the lower surface of that landscape “serpent” by three
full turns of 360o for 60 days until August 16. Then over the
next 5 days until August 21, it should “rotate” by another (5 / 20) x
360o = 90o to give three and one-quarter
turns in total.
21, this “rotating calendar wheel” would therefore show a local
orientation in the field of (13o + 90o) = 103o,
or just south of due East. Its “eclipsed Sun” motif will then be
oriented one-quarter turn or 90o further clockwise, than how
it was drawn on June 17. In other words, its central “crescent Sun” will
then be on the left (or western side), while its slightly smaller “round
Moon” will then be on the right (or eastern side).
Now our Sun
will show a partial eclipse in southern England on August 21, 2017
around 1840 UT. Its azimuth on the local horizon, close to sunset on
August 21, will be 283o or just north of due West. We
calculated from the “rotating calendar wheel” a field orientation of 103o
after 65 days, which could also be 180o further away to the
west as 283o, depending on how we view the relative sky
locations of Sun and Moon on that day.
will be located slightly above the Sun along the western
horizon during that eclipse (as seen from southern England), at altitude
4.6o for the Moon versus 4.1o for the Sun (see
www.fourmilab.ch). So if we simply “flip” that “rotated” crop
picture from a horizontal plane of the field where it was drawn, onto a
vertical sky plane of the western horizon, then it will match precisely
the sky image of a partial solar eclipse which it will be seen there on
“hidden puzzle” with a message for everyone on Earth
the hidden puzzle from this crop picture was to realize that “65 days”
between June 17 when it appeared, and a solar eclipse on August 21,
implies 3.25 turns or a net 90o of clockwise rotation, as a
“calendar wheel” with 20 days per 360o turn “rolls along” the
lower body of a landscape “serpent” from “tail” to “head”. Once rotated
clockwise by an additional 90o, then the Cheesefoot Head crop
picture matches a sky image of a partial solar eclipse, as it will be
seen from the same field 65 days later.
crop pictures on June 4 at Woolstone Hill, on June 9 at Maiden Bradley,
or on June 15 at Badbury Rings, have likewise shown “hidden puzzles”
which suggested 78, 73 or 67 days respectively, between the date when
they appeared, and a solar eclipse on August 21 (please see the Comments
or Articles pages for those crop pictures elsewhere on this website).
