The jellyfish population has been expanding in “jellyfish blooms” in oceans around the globe, and now the explosion includes a 600-foot-long crop circle in England!

The June 10, 2009, issue of Science Daily noted that we are seeing “major increases in jellyfish numbers, which appear to be the result of human activities.”  

On June 9th, the Mother Nature Network reported that “Giant jellyfish weighing up to 440 pounds are taking over areas of the world’s oceans ...Their numbers are swelling thanks to decreased competition from fish (due to overfishing). Currently, giant Nomura jellyfish measuring over six feet in length and weighing up to 440 pounds are growing in numbers.”

Jellyfish blooms have been reported in the Mediterranean, the Gulf of Mexico, the Black and Caspian Seas, the Northeast US coast, Hawaii, Australia, the Bering Sea, the North Sea, Namibia, and very dramatically in the Sea of Japan. Science Daily noted that, “By sampling sea life in a heavily fished region off the coast of Namibia, researchers have found that jellyfish have actually overtaken fish in terms of the biomass they contribute to this ocean region.”

On June 8, World Oceans Day, the Jerusalem Post noted that “large concentrations” of jellyfish “are due to arrive off Israel's coast very soon, and earlier than usual,” according to Magen David Adom.

According to Crop Circle Connector (, the Jellyfish crop circle, similar in appearance to a giant Portuguese Man-of-War, was reported just over a week earlier, on May 29th, in Waylands Smithy, Oxfordshire, England.

Crop Circle Connector, which produces annual DVD's on the crop circle phenomenon, states, “A characteristic of a crop circle is a circular depression within a field of crop (oil seed rape, barley, wheat, oats) where the plants themselves are flattened at the very base, (or frequently bent at the lowest node junction) in a ‘spiralled’ pattern ... generally the plant is bent over at 90 degrees to the standing crop around it …

“From the evidence inside many formations we have visited, the force involved in creating them is extremely rapid, but at the same time impressively accurate … We do believe that some are hoaxed every year, but there is definitely a real phenomenon interacting with these man-made designs.”

Nonprofit research team Burke, Levengood & Talbott has researched this intriguing, and still unexplained, crop circle phenomenon since 1999. Their focus is the discovery, scientific documentation and evaluation of physical changes induced in plants, soils and other materials at crop circle sites by the energy (or energy system) responsible for creating the crop circles, and to determine from these data the specific nature and source of these energies. ( )

During the 1990’s The BLT Research Team published three peer-reviewed papers in the scientific journals. Their work is the only scientifically accepted crop research to date.

Funded by Laurance Rockefeller, BLT conducted an examination of clay minerals in crop circle soil in the late 1990’s.
