I have never heard of these light circles, but they look pretty cool. There's a ton of pictures on their website at:
Who has not seen photos of the stunning array of crop circles that have been appearing over the past 30 years or so, primarily in England, but as far as the Canadian West and Australia. Indeed, as any number of publications on the topic will attest, the complexity of their shapes and patterns has evolved since the earliest to a veritable smorgasbord of art forms tied to Sacred Geometry.
In many ways, the huge crop circles seem to be related to the crosses of light that have been discovered around the world since 1988. These have generally appeared in regular frosted-glass windows and they cast a healing glow on those people and communities that they grace. Since 1997, however, there is “a new kid on the block.” Indeed, circular patterns of concentrated light have been seen to glow on buildings across the northeastern United States and beyond.
JD Rabbit, a US correspondent for Share International magazine, has documented this new occurrence since its inception and collected photos of numerous buildings with circles of light. Far from a fleeting occurrence, she states, the phenomenon has continued to proliferate: circles of light have lately been found in several European countries – Germany, Austria, Switzerland – in Australia and in Argentina. “Our reporting contacts are limited,” she says, “so it is pointless to try to number how many there are. I’d guess way over 100,000 by now: a big building can reflect dozens, and they’re all over New York City and Boston, for example.”
The circles of light are best seen in full sunlight, Rabbit explains, when the sunlight strikes a window at a fairly perpendicular angle and then reflects onto a suitable flat surface closely opposite. The angle of the sun and the angle of its reflection determine where the light circle is seen. It is also worth noting, she adds, that there is a variety of patterns and shapes that appear within the circle, some common like an “X” or a figure of eight, others more rare, like the Sacred Geometry figure known as the vessica pisces or Flower of Life. At first, there were about 8 basic shapes, but as with the crop circle pictographs, more recent ones have been different and more complex. Perhaps they share a common origin.
Some circles of light are seen only in the early morning; others appear at midday or late afternoon for a few hours; others can only be seen in spring and fall. Some have been observed in the same place for several years, while others appear for a while and then vanish.

Because this is a phenomenon of light, however, the designs can change or evaporate over as little as 15 minutes. Circles have appeared on huge buildings, like the hotel in Denver that was sheeted in them in November 2000. If a building is large and has many windows, there will be multiple reflections, and these may range from distinct forms like an “X” to reflections that are simply window-shaped or round but brighter than normal. Circles of light have also appeared on sidewalks, bedroom walls, automobiles or passing buses, clothing, and in one reported instance, on a man’s shirt as he went inside.
Physicists who have examined this phenomenon note that in order to produce such a focused image, the windowpane would need to take on an extreme curvature or concavity, as much as several millimeters, which is not evident under normal observation. The extreme force needed to produce such a bending deformation would certainly threaten the integrity of the glass itself. Furthermore, sheets of glass are not normally flat but slightly wavy due to the solidifying process during fabrication. This “waviness” is random, which makes it very unlikely to result in straight interference (i.e., straight lines such as the patterns produce in the image). Finally, the limits of coherence in sunlight itself (its coherent length is 1 micrometer) would not allow it to reflect without fuzziness on such a large scale. This means in sum that the shapes within the circular reflections cannot, from a physical point of view, be caused by mere focusing of light.
Based on the physical evidence to date, investigators from the Movement for the Development of Consciousness, Slovenia have raised at least three important questions for which there are as yet no answers: (1) Why would light circles sometimes appear as reflections from some windowpanes only, and sometimes as reflections from all windows of a building? (2) Why does there appear, if a windowpane’s surface is concave, an additional form like a bright “X” in the center of a round reflection? (3) Why would the concave surfaces appear in such masses just recently?
British author Benjamin Creme claims that a wave of “signs,” including the crop circles, the crosses of light and the circles of light, has been deliberately created across all culture and religions, and is proliferating now to help create a climate of expectancy as millions worldwide view these unexplained and yet dazzling phenomena. He says they herald the emergence onto the world scene of the Lord Maitreya, the Christ returned as World Teacher for the Age of Aquarius. There is an impressive body of evidence to substantiate Creme’s claim, some of which can be found on the Internet at http://www.share-international.org and http://www.themiraclespage.org.
Whatever their mysterious origin or raison d’ętre, it is worth considering these beautiful gifts of light and watching for them in the course of everyday life.
