About Colin Andrews:
Colin Andrews is a well-known researcher and author and is widely acknowledged as the world expert on the crop circle phenomenon. He is the founder of Circles Phenomenon Research International, the first organization established specifically to investigate the crop circle phenomenon. His scientific investigations are responsible for much of the current information available on the subject.
Andrews is an electrical engineer by profession and a former senior officer in British regional Government. For three years Colin advised the British Government on the crop circle phenomenon, supplying technical and scientific reports to the Under-Secretary of State for the environment (Rt. Hon. Nicholas Ridely, M.P.) in the Margaret Thatcher cabinet. As a result of his persistence, the subject was raised in the House of Commons.
Andrew’s supervised the largest surveillance project of its kind during 1990, called ‘Operation Blackbird’. It was an effort to film a crop circle forming, backed and supported by the British Army, B.B.C. and Nippon television and was watched closely by the international media.
Colin Andrews became involved in the circle mystery during 1983 when he saw an arrangement of five circles in a wheat field near Winchester, England. Intrigued by the engineering aspects of creating the circles he began investigations with Pat Delgado, a retired NASA engineer and Busty Taylor a light aircraft pilot. In 1989, Pat and Colin co-authored ‘Circular Evidence’, the first book written on the subject, which became an international best seller and was chosen by Queen Elizabeth for her prestigious ‘Summer Reading Listing’. It was the first time a book of this kind had ever been chosen by the monarchy for this listing.
