Recap of UK's Best Crop Circles for 2012, Pictures

As the crop season draws to a close in England, August has been another busy month for crop circles with 18 formations recorded so far, mostly in the county of Wiltshire.

The first pattern appeared on Aug. 1, just outside the village of Avebury, adjacent to the neolithic stone circle surrounding the settlement. The image bears similarities to four other formations seen earlier in 2012 that have all been interpreted to represent the current astronomy of Venus.

Another crop circle materialized the next day at Chalk Pit with a relatively simple spiral pattern.

Others included a series of labyrinth knots, multiple discs arranged in a hexagon, and also on a square-shaped grid.

Local farmers have been busy harvesting the crops while the weather has been dry, although a few more formations may crop up over the coming days before the season ends.
