This interesting image in the snow reminds me of pictures of the most famous English snow Artist Simon Beck. For his paintings he often seeks inspiration in the crop circle. I attach some of these pictures.

This crop circle is so well executed that aliens might have created it, even though they consistently prefer crops. In any event, the message is fairly clear. Owls shown in crop circles have appeared before in July 20, 2008, July 28, 2009, and August 10, 2009.   As with any species, their appearance can indicate a marked change in the species, and most likely, a significant decline in numbers. This would be caused by the negative effects of a comet strike. 

The two eyes (black circles) represent the split halves of Comet B's nucleus, well attested by numerous  other crop circles. The nose is in the general shape of a shield, representing earth peoples'  attempt to  protect the planet from comet strikes (failing in this case). The remaining lines describe the intense light  emitted by the comet during its trajectory through the atmosphere. The outside ring is perhaps a line of  latitude, not necessarily the equator.

Why create in the snow? It might indicate the time of year (Winter) when the comet strikes, or the  general location of the impact sites somewhere in the far northern regions. Comet B is actually predicted to strike in the Barents Sea by my free ebook "The Heck Hypothesis." 

Owls are strange birds that do seem to have some connection to UFOs.  See for example:

Perhaps UFO activity will also be declining after the comet strikes.

THE SNOW OWL OF ROUNDWAY HILL – Oliver’s Fort, nr Devizes 1 of 3- Page 4 Sketch Map  

On 2nd of February 2019, Chris Barrow, a civil servant, reportedly out taking pictures of the snowy landscape with his drone, came across a large design that had been created in fresh snow just to the north of Roundway Hill near Devizes. Using his drone he took photographs of the design which were later reported on Metro, other internet sites and featured on the Crop Circle Connector website as the design, called the Snow Owl, closely replicated very similar owl images that had been created in crop circles in previous years. It has been suggested that whoever created the owl crop circles may have also managed to create the Snow Owl or that the crop circles were an inspiration for the later snow formation at the beginning of February 2019. This, of course, assumes that the video taken is genuine and not a fake creation by photo trickery.

Crop Circle Rumours 2019

A study of the crop formations that appeared in 2018 has shown that many of them flag ancient sites and routes of southern Britain and were often placed in locations where crop formations had appeared in previous years. All this is detailed in a separate account. To discover this connection to an ancient layout of sites, often considered sacred, and the ancient routes of Britain, one needs to consider the Latitudes and Longitudes of the crop formations that appeared in 2018. So it follows that it is of great interest to any researcher where exactly crop formations may appear this year, 2019, to see if some of them might also conform to this ancient layout. February is too early in the year for crop circles but we have this, possibly crop circle inspired, Snow Owl design to consider. Was it just created at random on the landscape or was it also formed in a specific geographical position for a reason, or maybe several reasons, whoever may have created it ?

Here are a few suggested reasons as to why the Snow Owl was created at the given location, about Latitude 51.383 degrees north of the Equator and 2.003 degrees west of the Greenwich Meridian, an ancient and some believe possibly sacred north/south line


The Roundway Snow Owl was placed on, or right next to, John Michell’s Saint Michael Line which goes through southern Britain from Lands End to the North Sea near Hopton / Lowestoft. Well established St Michael Line sites tell us this. The Great Circle bearing from the ruined St Michael church on Burrowbridge Mump to the ruined St Michael church on Glastonbury Tor is about 61.44 degrees from True North and on the Snow Owl longitude, i.e. due south of the snow formation, this passes just to the south of Roundway Hill and next to an ancient sacred spring site called Mother Anthony’s Well. A known Romano British site this is now believed to have origins at least as far back as the Late Bronze Age. (www.bacas.org.uk)

The St Michael Line has slight variations so taking a bearing again from Burrowbridge Mump this time to Bury St Edmunds gives a bearing of about 61.13 degrees which at the Snow Owl longitude passes right next to this snow formation, a tiny fraction to the south. This bearing passes at about latitude 51.382 north and the Snow Owl is recorded at 51.383 north, this might be nearer 51.3822 from Google Maps. The axis of the Snow Owl replicates this line marked by foot prints in the snow.

 It can be shown that crop circles which were created during 2018 often flag locations on the St Michael Line by their Latitudes and Longitudes. The Snow Owl is not on any of the 2018 crop circle latitudes but Mother Anthony’s Well certainly is. This ancient sacred Well has a latitude of 51.3765 which is the same as the recorded latitude of a crop circle which was created at Martinsell Hill near Wooton Rivers on 7th of July 2018. This crop formation was destroyed by the farmer soon after it was found but fortunately photos were taken before this happened and its position recorded (see Crop Circle Connector website – 2018 Crop Circles)

The Martinsell Hill crop circle was a spectacular design as noted by Lucy Pringle and Michael Glickman, leading experts on the crop circle phenomena. Its latitude marks Mother Anthony’s Well or spring right next to the St Michael Line, the longitude of this sacred spring is marked by the Snow Owl location found and photographed by Chris Barrow on 2nd February 2019. With this correlation of information provided by these amazingly clever landscape formations or designs, in crops and in snow, anyone even remotely interested in crop circles would surely have to ask themselves, if this is not a coincidence, why is our attention being possibly drawn to Mother Anthony’s Well? Is there something special about that particular geographical location apart from the fact that it has very ancient origins and seems to be a marker place on John Michell’s St Michael Line?

We know that Mother Anthony’s Well (MAW) may have been an important location back at least as far as the Late Bronze Age, some 3,000 years ago, and that the Romans built there some 2,000 years ago. Like many springs in ancient folklore the MAW spring was considered sacred. Since latitudes and longitudes are important to crop circle positions, and maybe also to the Snow Owl position, it is worth looking at these lines from MAW to see if they give any clues as to why it might be important -

Longitude N – to the north of MAW the line highlights Calne, with an ancient mound from at least the Iron Age, Bradenstoke with sacred springs, a Holy Well and earthwork mounds of ancient origin. This was later a very important priory site much favoured by early English monarchs. Going north again the line goes to Bagendon springs which was an important centre of the Dobunni tribe in pre-Roman times. Archaeological reports show this was a major settlement with many earthworks and 7 springs. The scholar Stephen J Yeates wrote of the Dobunni people in his book ‘The Tribe of Witches’

Longitude S – to the south of MAW the line highlights Potterne, known as ‘The Place of Springs’, Dinton at Wick Ball Camp an Iron Age or earlier site, Gussage All Saints church site, Witchampton - a river site with Roman finds, Rempstone Stone Circle site and reaches the South Coast at Dancing Ledge where there are several springs noted on the Ordinance Survey

Latitude E – to the east of MAW the line highlights Bishops Canning church, Rybury Fort, Tan Hill stone circle site, Martinsell Hill Fort, Great Bedwyn church, Inkpen springs, Sandleford Priory, All Saints church Hartley, Upchurch St Marys, Lower Halstow - with Holy Well and through to Reculver near Herne Bay on the east coast which has finds dating back to the Bronze Age, Iron Age and a major Roman base. Archaeologists found an inordinately large number of water cisterns or wells there some may have had pre-Roman origins. How much did the Roman invaders, or some of them, learn about ancient and clearly important sites in Britain and then decided to reuse them?

Latitude W – to the west of MAW this latitude line goes to Melksham, the centre of Bath, then just south of Cadbury Hill Fort before reaching the coast of the Severn estuary north of Weston super Mare. The most interesting site on this latitude line west of the MAW spring is Bath with its famous thermal springs which in pre-Roman times were sacred to the Goddess Sul. The MAW latitude line passes just south of the Roman Baths and the Snow Owl latitude line passes just north of the springs

Archaeological evidence shows that the Goddess Sul was worshipped at the hot springs of Bath long before the Roman invasion of Britain and was clearly thought so important to some of the Romans that they followed her name with the name of their Goddess Minerva and worshipped Sulis Minerva at the sacred site where the hot waters of Sulis, Aquae Sulis, came to the surface of the country they called Britannia, another name for the Goddess

 The hot springs of Bath are unique in the British Isles, the only place where really warm water reaches the surface of the land without cooling on the way up from the great depths where it was heated. There are apparently three springs that do this around the site of the Roman Baths and the Temple to the Goddess Sulis Minerva, at a latitude of about 51.3810 north of the Equator. With the Snow Owl formation at latitude of about 51.383, or maybe nearer 51.3822, and Mother Anthony’s Well at latitude 51.3765 on that longitude the Hot Springs of Bath latitude line goes to the centre of the fort on Roundway Hill called Oliver’s Fort and there are also ancient barrows that mark this latitude just to the west of the fort

It might just be coincidence that we find other ancient Springs and Wells north, south and east of MAW but some of these were known to be sacred sites as folklore tells us many springs and wells were considered to be in ancient times. Many sacred sites, later church sites, have springs nearby.

If the Snow Owl was intended to guide us to the MAW spring at the St Michael Line and the ancient sacred spring site of the Goddess Sul at Bath, why was the design based on the owl?

When the invader Romans chose to link the Goddess Sul to their Goddess Minerva they must have learnt from some of the Celtic tribes of Britain that Sul was a wise Goddess which is how they viewed Minerva. Minerva apparently derives from the Greek Goddess Athena and the sacred animal or creature of these two goddesses was the Owl. The Owl is depicted on finds from ancient Bath.

https://www.romanbaths.co.uk/news/minervas-owls-bath-2018. NB - the fact that Minerva’s Owl was featured in the 2018 trail must, of course, be just a coincidence

Also worth noting is that the Roundway Hill Snow Owl was apparently found and filmed on 2nd of February 2019 and no one saw it being created so that may have been at night on 1st February. The 1st of February is the ancient festival of Imbolc sacred to the Goddess Brighde . Many experts believe this Goddess, with various spellings of her name, is the origin of the later Saint Brigid

So whoever created the Snow Owl at Roundway Hill this year may have known the significance of the place they chose to form it. Or was it just a random choice, a place with a nice fall of fresh cold snow to play with? If the video footage is correct it was an amazing achievement whoever made it!

It has been suggested that these two designs, in snow and ice, that have appeared this year, 2019, might possibly be linked, even if

thousands of miles apart, but if so how and why. 

The sketch map on the Snow Owl comment illustrates that the Snow Owl position marks a longitude that links two St Michael Line alignments from Burrow Mump to Bury St Edmunds – 61.13 degrees and from Burrow Mump to Glastonbury Tor – 61.44 degrees. But Is the St Michael line through southern Britain part of a Great Circle bearing that goes right round the world? Is the Ice Circle that was reported on the 12th April at Lake Qinghai in central China on or close to those two Great Circles from Burrow Mump, 61.13 and 61.44 degrees ? 

The answer is - not very close. The bearing from Burrow Mump to the Ice Circle, at the reported position of 36.62 degrees north and 100.53 degrees east of the Greenwich Meridian, is about 56.40 degrees so the Ice Circle is north of the Great Circles from Burrow Mump which passes to the south of the frozen lake ice with its unexplained formation. But not very far south, only about 5 degrees. As the Snow Owl is a longitude marker for the St Michael Line is the Ice Circle indicating anything about the locations to the south where the two St Michael line bearings, 61.13 and 61.44 degrees cross its longitude or meridian

The bearing from Burrow Mump to the Snow Owl and Bury St Edmunds as a Great Circle crosses the Ice Circle longitude, 100.53 east, at a latitude of about 29.59 degrees north where, from Google Maps, there does not seem to be anything significant that marks this location. So is this latitude significant anywhere else? 

If the St Michael Line is an ancient general alignment of sites the major ancient location at a latitude of 29.59 degrees north is Ancient Egypt where the Sphinx and Great Pyramid are north of this latitude at about 29.976 degrees north. The Snow Owl flags the St Michael Line so is there somewhere on this 61.13 degree Snow Owl and Bury St Edmunds St Michael line which by Great Circle would give the Giza 29.976 degrees north latitude on the Ice Circle longitude line? 

This occurs to the east of Glastonbury close to Worminster south of Dinder at about 51.183 north and 2.59 west. Worminster is believed to be named after the Old English name for dragon and there is a centuries old custom at Dinder which re-enacts a dragon killing cleric story from the 13th Century. So this would seem to be an important area linked to ancient Dragon or Ley Lines but this may be being demonstrated this year by whoever created the Snow Owl and Ice Circle in China, thousands of miles away.   wiltshirewandering 

For connections between the St Michael Line and the Great Pyramid see David Furlong’s book ‘The Keys to the Temple’ and -

david furlong  & www.davidfurlong.co.uk It may be worth noting the position of Wootton Rivers/ Martinsell Hill CC at the base of Furlong’s twin circle vesica – The Snow Owl’s nose seems to mark the spot in the design of that snow formation.
