The Arecibo reply

The Arecibo reply was the name given to a crop circle that appeared in farmland next to the Chilbolton radio telescope; home to the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence Institute (SETI) in Hampshire, UK, on 19 August 2001. It was 75 feet wide and 120 feet long. The design is so named because it appears to be a response to the Arecibo message, which SETI transmitted into space in 1974.

The crop circle design features two images. The first is a pixelated halftone image of a face resembling either a grey or the Face on Mars. The second image resembles the original Arecibo message though changed in a number of key elements, said by Ufologists to be a reply sent to Earth by an alien species.

As with all crop circles, the origin of the Arecibo reply is highly debated. Known crop circle designers have not replicated the image at this stage.
