Stonehenge Attracts UFO and Crop Circle

This year’s summer solstice appears to have stirred things up paranormally around everyone’s favorite Neolithic monument – Stonehenge. A black UFO was photographed over the monument and a new crop circle was spotted near it. Are they related?

Details about the UFO photograph are sketchy. The photograph was submitted to a UFO recording agency on June 21st and was purportedly taken shortly before that. The black UFO appears to be over Stonehenge and two people seem to be looking at it but no other information is given about how long it was there nor how it left the area. It’s estimated to be 20 to 30 feet in diameter.

This would not be the first time a UFO has visited Stonehenge. British ufologist Nigel Watson recalls a disc-shaped object reported a few years ago that shined a beam of light on the ground. Then there is the photograph found in declassified files released by the UK Ministry of Defence of a UFO over Stonehenge in 2009.

Back on the ground, a crop circle was discovered in a field about 1 km from Stonehenge shortly after the summer solstice. Aerial videos were later taken using drones. Like the UFOs, Stonehenge has attracted crop circles over the years. As usual, there were no witnesses to the creation of the crop circle other than the anonymous creators themselves. No explanation of what the shape might represent has been given so far by crop circle experts.

So we have a mysterious photograph of a UFO over Stonehenge and an aerial view of a crop circle near it. Skeptics and believers will disagree on both. The real mystery is the stone monument at the center that continues to attract, awe and mystify us (and possibly aliens) millenniums after it was built.
