Will the legendary Quetzalcoatl ever return, and if so when? Some crop pictures suggest “three years” after December 23, 2012 when the Mayan Long Count calendar ended, which might mean late 2015 or early 2016. Yet can crop pictures really reveal future events?  

While we were studying past seasons of field images in the Archives of Crop Circle Connector, we noticed that some crop pictures seem to suggest a near-future date in late 2015 or early 2016, when the legendary Quetzalcoatl might show himself openly, or even land on planet Earth. Can such field images really reveal future events, or are they just artistic fantasies and speculations?  

The most “definite” crop picture of this kind might be Cooks Plantation of August 23, 2013. It seems to show a time period of “three years” from when the Mayan Long Count calendar ended on December 23, 2012, until we will supposedly see the “face of Quetzalcoatl” flying a large, egg-shaped spacecraft!  

Another “definite” crop picture might be Windmill Hill of July 26, 2011. It seems to show a near-future date in the Mayan Long Count calendar of, which corresponds to October 5 or 7, 2015 in our calendar. Will something important happen then? 

We also found a series of less definite but still interesting crop pictures, which describe “Quetzalcoatl” or his supposed “return to Earth”, in somewhat vague artistic terms. 

Here we will bring such potentially important information to the public. Are some modern crop pictures meant to be interpreted factually? Or are they only fantastic images which emerge from the fertile imaginations of unknown crop artists, whether human, time traveller or extra-terrestrial? You the reader can decide!  

August 13, 2013 at West Kennett Long Barrow: a “triangular UFO” coming in to land, with a cryptic “lunar calendar” at its centre 

One does not have to be a genius, to realize that extra-terrestrials might be coming soon to land on planet Earth. Yet when will that be exactly? A large “triangular UFO” was drawn in crops near West Kennett Long Barrow on August 13, 2013. There it was shown “coming in to land” at a metaphorical “runway”:  

Looking more closely, we can also see that this crop picture shows a “lunar calendar” near its centre. First we can see a large “lunar crescent” pointing downward, to suggest that we should “count time by the Moon”:  

Next we can see 2 x 6 = 12 small “wedges” drawn just below that “lunar crescent”. These might plausibly represent the 12 lunar months of any “lunar year” (which has 354 days).  

Going outward from the centre, we can see three “long bars” which make up part of the “triangular UFO”. These have been labelled in red as “1, 2, 3” in the slide above. Might they be intended to suggest an approximate time period of “three complete turns around the lunar calendar” or “three lunar years”?  

One of those small “wedges” (near the bottom) has been divided further by a “thin line”, which is marked with a dashed red or yellow line in the slide above. The crop artists even drew a thin tuft of standing crop along that thin line, in the direction of the “lunar crescent”. That thin line adds one extra “lunar month” to the “wedges”, to give a total of 13 rather than 12.  

Might this “lunar calendar” imply a time interval of “three lunar years” plus “one lunar month”, thereby giving a date in late 2015 (three years after the Mayan calendar ended), or maybe in 2016 (three years after the crop picture appeared)? That is certainly an interesting hypothesis, but this particular field image remains cryptic and vague. Let us go on to study another crop picture with similar features, which appeared only ten days later on August 23, 2013, in the hope that its interpretation might be more clear and definite.  

August 23, 2013 at Cooks Plantation: an “egg shaped UFO” showing the “face of Quetzalcoatl”, which has been drawn inside of a “Katun calendar wheel” 

The Mayans and Aztecs used a “Katun calendar wheel” to make near-future predictions. Such “calendar wheels” were described after Spanish conquest by the historian Diego de Landa (see www.sacred-texts.com). They were also used by the Aztec priest Chilam Balam to make his famous “katun” prophecies (see www.sacred-texts.com or www.famsi.org).  

A “Katun calendar wheel” shows typically 13 “Ahau” symbols, each with “two small eyes” and a “nose” (shown on the left below): 

In this context, each “Ahau” symbol represents 20 years or one “katun” of historical time. All 13 “Ahau” symbols, when joined together into a circle, add to give 260 years or 13 “katuns” of historical time.  

One such “Katun calendar wheel”, with 12 “Ahau” symbols rather than 13, was drawn in crops at Smeathes Plantation on July 24, 2009 (see www.lucypringle.co.uk). Another “Katun calendar wheel” was drawn in crops at Cooks Plantation on August 23, 2013. This second example showed 13 “square spirals” around the outside (see above on the right). Such “square spirals” are more general symbols for “calendar time” in Mayan or Aztec culture, than “Ahau” symbols per se.

When might this “new crop calendar” from August 2013 begin? Thirteen “square spiral” symbols suggest that it may have begun six months earlier on in the Mayan Long Count or December 23, 2012, when the old Mayan calendar came to an end. If this is the case, then its first “katun” of 20 years should extend in time from until, which will be September 9, 2032 in the new Mayan calendar (one “katun” later).

When we study the centre of this crop picture using a high-resolution, aerial photograph (see www.lucypringle.co.uk), we can see two large “round eyes” and a curved “lunar crescent nose”. We can also see two “eyebrows”, two “long ears”, a “moustache” and a “pointed beard”. Might we be seeing here the humorous “face of Quetzalcoatl”? By legend, he promised to return to Earth soon after the Mayan Long Count calendar would end in December of 2012.  

Looking more carefully at fine details of this crop picture (see www.lucypringle.co.uk), we can see that his “beard” has been subdivided into 12 parts, while his “moustache” has been subdivided into 13 parts. Two large “round eyes” resemble the numbers “0” and “0”. Each of his two “long ears” show three “small dots”. All of these details seem consistent with a Mayan Long Count date of or August 23, 2013, when the crop picture appeared.  

What a joker, always drawing something clever and humorous! In ancient Mayan times, Quetzalcoatl was known as a “court jester”, and was even sculpted wearing a “three-lobed jester’s hat” (see www.bluffton.edu or www.lucypringle.co.uk or www.mesoweb.com). 

More seriously, might this crop picture tell us approximately when Quetzalcoatl plans to return? The large “egg shaped UFO”, which appears near its centre with “Quetzalcoatl’s face” placed over it, was drawn in crops slightly tilted to the right, as noted by a small red arrow in the slide above. Such a tilt seems analogous to the “moving hour hand” of a “clock”. Since we know that each “hourly division” of this “clock” represents one “katun” or 20 years of historical time, can we measure its “angle of offset” very accurately, in order to estimate when Quetzalcoatl might supposedly return?  

This graphical calculation is shown in the slide below. There we can see an enlarged version of the “offset region”, which has been labelled with three dashed blue lines to mark each 20-year “katun” period of time (starting on December 23, 2012). We have also added a dashed yellow line, in order to mark the angle of offset as accurately as possible: 

When we measure angles from this enlarged diagram, we find an angle of offset of approximately “three years” (red number “3”) out of a total “katun” time period of 20 years (blue numbers “20”).  

Could this be why his “long ears” were drawn with three “small dots”, since any “dot” stands in Mayan mathematics for the number “1”? Certainly an interesting calculation, but which calendar dates might other crop pictures suggest?  

July 5, 2009 at Silbury Hill: a “feathered headdress of Quetzalcoatl” from ancient Mayan times, drawn with several “calendar symbols” in its pyramid-like centre, or within its surrounding parts

A famous crop picture called the “Quetzalcoatl headdress” appeared on July 5, 2009 near Silbury Hill. Even at first glance, we can see two large sets of “seven quetzal feathers” near its centre. Might these “seven feathers” suggest “seven years” past 2009 until Quetzalcoatl returns?  

Studying this crop picture more closely, we can see that a curved “pyramid” motif has been overlaid among those 2 x 7 = 14 “quetzal feathers”. This “pyramid” shows two dot-and-dash codes as “10-15” on the left (marked in red above) or “9-16” on the right (marked in blue). Could those be month-and-year dates, for example “10-15” for October 2015 or “9-16” for September 2016?  

Just below, we can see the “face of Quetzalcoatl” as it was drawn on Mayan pyramids long ago (see  Teotihuacan_Feathered_Serpent_(Jami_Dwyer)). This “face” motif consists of three small dots for his “eyes and nose”, plus a “pointed beard” which has been subdivided into 10 smaller parts. On left and right, we can see 7 or 8 “long wedges” which add to 7 + 8 = 15.  

Could three small dots for his “eyes and nose” represent “three years”, just as we calculated for Cooks Plantation above? And might that 10-part “beard” plus 15 “long wedges” be intended to repeat two coded numbers of “10” and “15” as drawn on the left above (marked in red)?  

Within the outer parts of this same crop picture, we can see a large “lunar crescent” which has been overlaid with five “square spiral” symbols for calendar time, on both left and right. These symbols may represent the five digits of any Mayan Long Count calendar as “baktun-katun-tun-uinal-kin”, or equivalently 400 years-20 years-1 year-20 days-1 day:  

Just one of those “square spiral” symbols, at Cooks Plantation on August 23, 2013, represented one “katun” or 20 years of calendar time. Five “square spiral” symbols match “day 5” of the month when this crop picture appeared, while seven “quetzal feathers” match “month 7” of the year when it appeared, on a date of July 5, 2009.  

Finally at both thin tips of that large, outer “lunar crescent”, we can see three “small dots” (marked with red boxes in the slide above). Might these mean three “brief periods of time” until Quetzalcoatl returns, since the “dot” in Mayan mathematics stands for a number “1”? Two other crop pictures on August 19, 2013 or August 23, 2013, as well as landscape features near a crop picture at Stonehenge on August 1, 2013, also showed those same “three dots” (see other “red boxes” in the slide above).  

Where was this 2009 crop picture drawn in the landscape? Looking at the slide below, we can see that it was drawn next to a huge landscape symbol for the number “10”, while pointing toward Silbury Hill at upper left:  

That landscape symbol “10” has been used on several other occasions to help with “counting” by the crop artists. For example in 2012, we saw a “ten-pointed star” drawn next to the same number “10” (see www.lucypringle.co.uk). In 2014, we saw “full Moon” and “half Moon” symbols drawn not far away, to represent an astronomical date of “August 10”.  

For our crop picture from 2009, we can see that a large number “10” has been surrounded in the landscape by five or six bright symbols for the number “1”. When studied as a whole, all of these symbols seem to suggest a possible date of “10-15” which was coded within one part of the crop picture nearby (see above), or perhaps a date of “10-6” for the year 2016.  

August 16, 2014 at Nettle Hill: will we get an “eye opening revelation” during the year 2016, when an extra-terrestrial “gunslinger” comes to town?  

That “feathered headdress” from Silbury Hill on July 5, 2009 was drawn again in crops, on a miniature scale, at Nettle Hill on August 16, 2014. There it was included as part of an “opening eye”. Their “eye” motif showed 2 x 7 =14 “eyelashes” above the “pupil”, and 2 x 6 = 12 “eyelashes” below.  

This Nettle Hill crop picture seems to suggest an “eye opening revelation” for all humans on Earth in the near future. When might it occur? Looking carefully to see where in the landscape Nettle Hill was drawn, one can see a large number “16”:  

This landscape feature matches “August 16” as the day when the crop picture appeared. Are they trying to tell us about an “eye opening revelation” during the upcoming year 2016?  

Two other features of the landscape nearby were a “large penguin” and a “small serpent”. That “small serpent” (on the right) is looking intently at the crop picture, which shows an “opening eye”:  

The “large penguin” (on the left) is “looking up” at something. What is that “penguin” looking up at, which causes its eyes to open widely? Our “penguin” friend seems to be looking up at the huge landscape figure of a “gunslinger” on far left:   

What a clever crop picture! Who might the mysterious “gunslinger” be? Who will be coming in the year 2016 to give us an “eye opening revelation”?  

Studying this crop picture in fine detail, we can see that its upper “14 eyelashes” resemble “14 quetzal feathers” from the “Quetzalcoatl headdress” in 2009:  

At Nettle Hill in 2014, we can see “14 eyelashes” above the “pupil”, while a “tiny serpent” crosses the eye’s “field of view” from right to left. At Silbury Hill in 2009, we could see “14 quetzal feathers” above a “lunar crescent” which showed the “face of Quetzalcoatl”. Likewise along the top of Silbury Hill in 2009, we could see a large “zig-zag serpent” moving from right to left.  

Many clues from these two crop pictures therefore suggest that Quetzalcoatl (as a “Feathered Serpent”) might possibly return to Earth in a dramatic, eye-opening fashion during the year 2016, or late in 2015.  

July 25, 2011 at Etchilhampton: a “blue star” of the Hopis was surrounded by a 354-day lunar calendar with four thin swirls, while being watched by a “native American” in the landscape 

The Hopi tribe of north America has a long-standing prophecy that a bright blue star will appear in the night sky, shortly before the return of their “true white brother” who is called “Pahana” (see Blue_Star_Kachina or www.youtube.com). This may be just another name for Quetzalcoatl (see www.rexresearch.com).  

Several crop pictures seem to relate to this Hopi prophecy. For example at Etchilhampton on July 25, 2011, we saw a “six-pointed star” of detailed structure, drawn under the “nose” of a “native American” figure in the landscape:  

One can tell easily, by close inspection of features where the wheat stems were laid down, that this crop picture was not made by local humans on the ground:                                                                                                                        

What kind of complex pattern might those fallen wheat stems describe? A high-resolution aerial photograph of this crop picture shows three large “rings” of carefully-patterned crop around the outside:  

Each of those large “rings” contains approximately 118 “small marks” made from carefully-laid wheat stems, as shown schematically on the right above. All three rings together create (3 x 118) = 354 small marks, which match the number of days in any 12-month lunar year. 

A few days after this crop picture appeared, four “long thin swirls” were added mysteriously around the outside, as shown on the right below:  

These match four “swirls” from a well-known Hopi cultural symbol, as shown on the left above. The crop artists could have added six swirls, but instead chose to add only four. Might these subtle additions be intended to suggest “four lunar years” past July of 2011, when the crop picture appeared?  

August 15, 2006 at Etchilhampton: another “blue star” of the Hopis was drawn, showing a complex grid of “spacetime curvature”, while being watched by a “native American” in the landscape  

Five years earlier, a large “four-pointed star” was drawn in almost the same field location, on top of Etchilhampton Hill:  

On that occasion, it showed a complex grid of “spacetime curvature”, while appearing under the “nose” of the same “native American” figure in the landscape.  

July 26, 2011 at Windmill Hill: a humorous “alligator” or “serpent” will supposedly “knock a man over” on a near-future Mayan calendar date of, which matches October 5 or 7, 2015  

One day after that “six-pointed star” appeared on top of Etchilhampton Hill on July 25, 2011, another spectacular crop picture appeared near Windmill Hill some distance away. Looking to see where it was drawn in the landscape, we found the humorous image of an “alligator” or “serpent”, who is “knocking a man off his feet”:  

Looking next at the crop picture itself, using a high-resolution aerial photograph, we can see a “planetary system” which has been embedded with a specific date from the Mayan Long Count calendar:  

Its Mayan calendar date seems to read, going from the centre to outside. Several symbols within that crop picture match the orbital locations of Uranus, Saturn, Jupiter and Mars on the same date, which will be October 5 to 7, 2015.  

Studying this crop picture in greater detail, we can see other ground features which resemble the expected “rings” around symbols for “Saturn” or “Uranus”:  

Two sets of “five small bundles” of crop along its outer ring seem to suggest that “14” and “18” are numbers in a five-digit Mayan calendar.  

As an aside, the “1-9-2 polar clock” from Chualar on December 28, 2013 suggests a similar date as “one year, nine months and 2/12 months” past the start of 2014. Alternatively if we flip Chualar upside-down, then its “polar clock” reads “7-3-8” and suggests a date of July 8, possibly in 2015. 

August 13, 2011 at Knoll Down: two nearby crop pictures show an “Earth-Sun-Venus conjunction” on August 16, 2011 plus a “six-pointed star”, close in the landscape to a “face of Quetzalcoatl” and his “flying spaceship”  

Two excellent crop pictures appeared at Knoll Down on the same day of August 13, 2011. When we use Google Earth to learn where they were drawn, we can see a “winking face of Quetzalcoatl”, drawn semi-permanently in the landscape between them:  

Just above in the landscape, we can see the fast-moving image of a “flying spaceship”, which also features the “face of Quetzalcoatl” in a side-on view. A small standing tuft in the upper crop picture (labelled with a yellow dot) points toward where the “pilot” of that “spaceship” would be sitting.  

The lower of those two crop pictures (shown at right centre) suggests an “Earth-Sun-Venus alignment” which happened three days later on August 16, 2011. The upper crop picture shows a “six-pointed star”, which resembles another image drawn in crops at Etchilhampton in 1997 (see www.lucypringle.co.uk).  

That 1997 crop picture and its companion described a transit of Venus across our Sun, fifteen years later in June of 2012. Why did those crop artists draw the same “six-pointed star” again in 2011? Could it have been to suggest that there might be only five or six Sun-Venus conjunctions left, until Quetzalcoatl returns?  

In the landscape between these two crop pictures from August 13, 2011, we can see a large “L-shaped” symbol made from an irregularly-shaped clump of trees. This “L” shape stands for “love” in other field examples:

In other words, Quetzalcoatl seems to be planning to return to Earth with “great love” for the humans who live here in modern times!  

When we study details of the first crop picture more closely, it seems unlikely to have been made by local humans on the ground:  

The second crop picture also seems unlikely to have been made (on the same day) by humans on the ground:  

August 4, 2011 at Wayland’s Smithy: an “aviator” and his “space shuttle”, wearing a “lapel pin” which is styled on the Chalice Well symbol from Glastonbury 

One week earlier at Wayland’s Smithy, we saw the “Chalice Well” symbol from Glastonbury drawn in crops (see www.chalicewell.org.uk). The appearance of this crop picture makes little sense, until we examine the landscape context in which it was drawn:  

There we can see the schematic “head of an aviator”, with his “space shuttle” flying nearby! Along the “collar” of his flying jacket, we can see a small “lapel pin” which is based on the Chalice Well symbol from Glastonbury.  

It seems unlikely that this beautiful crop picture was made by local humans on the ground:  

August 6, 2006 at Blowingstone: a “pipe smoking serpent” who is slithering over “three stars” of Orion’s Belt  

On August 6, 2006 at Blowingstone Hill, we saw drawn in crops a spectacular “six-pointed star”, which resembles the “hyperbolic cube” used in certain theories of spacetime physics. When we looked in the landscape to learn where it was drawn, we saw the humorous image of a “pipe-smoking serpent”, who is slithering over “three stars” of Orion’s Belt:  

Similar “pipe-smoking” images of Quetzalcoatl appeared in crops both in 2014 and in 2011:  

The 2011 “smoking grey alien” is generally regarded to be a human-made fake, but who knows?  

June 24 or July 11, 2006 at Pilgrim’s Way: a “serpent with a human face”, flying toward a “seagull” while wearing a “rocket-powered jet pack”  

Many crop pictures seem intended to be purely humorous. We will show a few more examples of the “funny” kind here.  

On June 24, 2006 at Pilgrim’s Way, we saw the image of a “serpent with a human face”, who is flying toward a small white bird (possibly a “seagull”) while wearing a “rocket-powered jet pack”:  

Three weeks later in a nearby field, we saw the image of a “scorpion” with a “sting in its tail”, flying toward Earth in the same fashion:

Who could be making such cryptically-humorous crop pictures, which only a few people on Earth today can appreciate? Especially because its scientists remain metaphorically “blind”? Truly this is a great mystery, which cannot be explained away by sceptics who put forward mindless theories of “men with rope and boards”, while never going out into the fields to see what is happening for themselves!  

To paraphrase Francis Crick: “Exact knowledge is the enemy of scepticism.” 

Images of Quetzalcoatl from 2000 years ago in central America: an “ancient alien” who taught the Mayans everything they knew about mathematics, calendars, pyramids, astronomy and agriculture?  

Many crop pictures seem to revolve around “Quetzalcoatl” and his mysterious but promised “return to Earth”. Who was he really, when he lived with the Mayans at Teotihuacan long ago? Why did they build temples and pyramids in his honour? Was he a time traveller or ancient alien?  

Three different and authentic images of Quetzalcoatl from that era are shown in the slide below. What do you think?  

Various legends about Quetzalcoatl from ancient to modern times  

First we have ancient legends from north, central or south America of a white-skinned, bearded man who traveled among many native tribes to bring about peace 2000 years ago. This spiritual hero was best known as “Quetzalcoatl”, although he had other names as well (see www.rexresearch.com). When he left, he promised one day to return: 

Wherever our lord goes, we will go with him. He goes away, but he will return. He will come back to do his duty. When the world becomes oppressed, he will come to help bring it to an end.”  

Secondly, we have prophecies in the Christian religion about a “bright morning star”. This is what they called Quetzalcoatl in ancient central America. Could Quetzalcoatl and Jesus be related somehow? Revelation 22:16 says “I am the root and offspring of King David, and the bright morning star.” John 10:16 says “I have other sheep which are not of this pen (Israel). I will bring them in also when they hear my voice. There will be one flock (all of planet Earth) and one shepherd.”  

We have other prophecies in the Christian religion about a “rider on a white horse”. Revelation 6:2 says “Before me I saw a white horse! Its rider held a bow, he was given a crown, and he rode out as a conqueror, bent on conquest.”  

Local people have drawn many “white horses” in the landscape of Wiltshire. New crop pictures often point towards “white horses”, for example at Milk Hill, Hackpen Hill, Roundway or Hackpen Hill (see www.lucypringle.co.uk or www.lucypringle.co.uk or www.lucypringle.co.uk). One can hardly avoid thinking here about “four horsemen of the Apocalypse”!  

Finally we have stories from recent UFO literature, for example from the Swiss contactee Billy Meier. He supposedly met an extra-terrestrial man called “Quetzal”, who travelled here with others of his kind from the Pleiades star cluster in a parallel universe (see www.futureofmankind.co.uk).  

August 22, 2014 at Ackling Dyke: a “quetzal bird” flying to Earth from the Pleiades star cluster, while wearing a sign “love is law”  

One of the final crop pictures from 2014 provided an interesting clue as to who “Quetzalcoatl” might really be. On August 22, 2014 at Ackling Dyke, we saw a symbol meaning “love is the law”, drawn along the body of a landscape “quetzal bird”, who is seemingly “flying to Earth” from the Pleiades star cluster:  

A more detailed view shows how this particular landscape resembles “stars” from the Pleiades M45:  

The crop picture itself shows a symbol from the “Thelema” religious movement of early 20th-century England, which means “love is the law”:  

In summary, the crop artist Quetzalcoatl seems to be a space traveller from the Pleiades M45 star cluster, whether in this universe or a parallel one. He and his people may have lived on Earth with the Mayans before, for hundreds of years. Some modern crop pictures appear to suggest his imminent “return”. When might that be?  

If we study modern crop pictures very carefully, we can see hints and clues for “three years” after the end of the previous Mayan Long Count calendar on December 23, 2012. This could mean late in 2015, or sometime during the year 2016. Whether these field images actually tell us true information about the future, or are just showing us artistic fantasies and speculations, is hard to say! Hopefully new crop pictures from the summer of 2015 will tell us more.  

Red Collie (Dr. Horace R. Drew)  

P.S. We would like to thank all of the crop-circle researchers and photographers who have worked tirelessly to document this important phenomenon for the past 25 years, while modern science remains “blind” (John 9:41).
