A 350ft crop circle of an ancient Mayan symbol, said to be a sign of an impending apocalypse, has appeared next to Silbury Hill in Wiltshire.
The giant pattern - thought to represent a traditional Mayan head-dress - appeared next to the tallest prehistoric man-made mound in Europe last week.
Members of the crop circle community believe the mystic symbol is a signal of the end of the 5,126-year Mayan 'Long Count' calendar on December 21, 2012.
Karen Alexander, a crop circle enthusiast, said: "This is one of the most interesting crop circles I have ever seen. It is definitely a Mayan symbol and we are sure it is linked to the Mayan calendar, which ends in 2012.
"It appears to be a warning about the world coming to an end when the calendar does. For the ancient Maya, reaching the end of a cycle was a momentous event, so we are taking this crop circle very seriously as an indicator of a possibly huge event in 2012."
Last month a 400-foot crop circle depicting a phoenix rising from the flames appeared in a barley field in Yatesbury near Devizes, Wiltshire.
Crop circle theorists believe the patterns are created by UFOs during nocturnal visits, or caused by natural phenomena such as unusual forms of lightning striking the earth.

Why do the Brits get all the good crop circles? Rarely do any appear in the USA ...
Lot of creative schoolboys with excess time on their hands and insufficient adult supervision.
Do they know where they come from? What is the most popular theory? Just wondering.
I don’t see how something that nice could be a prank.
Creative people, at night. Ignoring the “alien creation” mythology, the creations themselves are very impressive.
Some turkey thinks that’s a hummingbird?
the aliens had better stop it before the insult the Muslims that live in the UK...
Too perfect for union labor!
The Brits know that crop circles are good money. It makes extra money on top of selling the crop.
Now how could I get my driveway to reflect the image of the Virgin Mary? I guess I better first build a good fence for the crowd control and ticket sales.
Because our farmers have shotguns and chase the hippie artists off their land.
There is a whole underground group of artists who do this, kind of like graffiti tagging..
All I see is trespassing and the destruction of a farmer’s hard work by a “crop circle artist.” Aka a person who has no respect for the ownership and property of others.
Here is the group I mentioned in the previous post.
It’s just done by people who use other people’s private property as their personal artists canvas. It it wrong and immoral unless they get the owners permission first. Jerks is what they are.
I dont see how something that nice could be a prank......
It’s 350 wide. I don’t see how this can be made at night by pranksters. It’s probably UFOs or something like that
