|This month Minnie is exploring the alphabet by digging out the unusual, often unexplained and alternative way of thinking. Stories of creatures, places and mysteries that have been passed down to us through centuries tease our imagination, live in our dreams and dare us to explore the impossible. Join Minnie each day as she discovers something unusual in the alphabet.|

The media first wrote about Crop circles in 1980, when the first real Newspaper report was published on a grouping of Circles that appeared in Wiltshire, England. However, many Farmers have mentioned that circles have been on their land for generations. Most likely Crop Circles have been around a lot longer than the recent history we know of, but there is little evidence supporting that fact.
A popular modern mystery, Crop circles are the formation of intricate and often beautiful patterns of flattened grass and crops appearing in fields all over the world. In many cases crop circles appeared in a very short space of time and with a level of complexity that seemed to go beyond anything that could be produced so quickly by pranksters. Strange phenomena would sometimes be detected inside the circles themselves such as unusual magnetic readings and electrical devices failing for no apparent reason.
Messages by aliens, communication from another dimension, magnetic fields, or are the Crop Circles some way linked to Ancient Sites? Some believe the circles to be spiritual in nature and that they represent messages from a higher intelligence. Whatever the case, to this day crop circles continue to appear in fields around the world, sometimes created by man but for the most part they remain a mystery.
