The element in the center represents a human. The element on the left (in the image) indicates the average height of a person: 1764 mm. This corresponds to the horizontally written binary 14 multiplied by the wavelength of the message (126 mm). The element on the right depicts the size of human population in 1974, around 4.2 billion. In this case, the number is oriented horizontally rather than vertically, with the least-significant-digit marker to the upper left in the image.

Planets

Earth
Sun Mercury Venus Mars Jupiter Saturn Uranus Neptune Pluto



The solar system, showing the Sun and the planets in the order of their position from the Sun: Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto (which is now classified as a dwarf planet, but was considered a planet at the time the message was written).

The Earth is the third planet from the Sun - its graphic is shifted up to identify it as the planet from which the signal was sent.

In addition to showing position, the graphic provides a general, not-to-scale size reference of each planet and the Sun.

The last part represents the Arecibo radio telescope with its diameter (2430 multiplied by the wavelength gives 306.18 m). In this case, the number is oriented horizontally, with the least-significant-digit marker to the lower right in the image.


Crop circle

A crop circle containing a modified form of the Arecibo message, referred to as the Arecibo reply, was found near Chilbolton's Observatory, Milk Hill, depicting a grey in place of the human figure

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.

Comparison with original Arecibo message

The original Arecibo message was transmitted as a two trillion watt (omnidirectional equivalent, 1MW actual) broadcast from the Arecibo radio telescope in Puerto Rico. The message was sent in a very narrow beam towards a globular cluster known as M13, 25,100 light years away. It was a pictogram arranged in a matrix of 23 pixels by 73 pixels. It was intended to describe our numbering system, the building blocks and formulas for DNA, a double helix symbol of DNA, a figure of a human being, our solar system, and a diagram of the radio telescope that sent the message.

The crop formation looked very similar to the Arecibo message with some very interesting differences. Below the dot pattern for our numbering system, the crop formation had an additional pattern that indicated the atomic number of silicon in addition to the hydrogen, carbon, nitrogen, oxygen, and phosphorus numbers. Instead of a double helix symbol of DNA, the crop formation depicted three sets of diagonal lines that may indicate three strands of DNA.

Instead of a depiction of a human being, as presented in the Arecibo message, the crop pattern had a different depiction of a humanoid form. This new image showed a body with two arms and legs like humans, but the head was much larger. The height of the crop formationís body was indicated as being a little taller than half the height of a human. The dot pattern in the crop formation indicated a population that was almost six and a half billion larger than our own.

The Arecibo message depicted the 9 planets around the Sun with the symbol for Earth raised above the rest to indicate where humanity lives. Earthís dot was also located directly below the depiction of man. In the crop formation, there were three symbols that were raised above the rest. They may indicate the planets of Earth, Mars, and Nibiru. However, it was the symbol for Mars that was located directly below the humanoid body.

At the very bottom of both formations, there are distinctly different dot patterns. The Arecibo message had a depiction of the telescope that sent the message with an indicated size of 2,430 feet. The crop formation had a depiction of something else with a size of 6,748 feet. It was very similar to another crop formation of one year earlier in the very same wheat field that depicted a new form of radiated energy.
