The Langenburg circles had the same or at least very similar
physical characteristics as what we would call crop circles
(rings in this case). The only 'difference' is that craft were
observed. But physically, they were pretty much the same thing.
Many of the older circle reports, without craft seen, were
similar to Langenburg. Why is it so hard for ufologists to get
this? That these may well be one and the same phenomenon?

I also have in my files many trace cases which are clearly not
crop circles (burned rings, rings in soil, etc.). Those are a
different kettle of fish. But flattened, swirled circles or
rings in vegetation are by definition crop circles, whether a
craft was witnessed or not.
