Best known for his research into the crop circle & UFO subjects since 1983. He provides the only
continuity between the past crop circle research era and the present, along with his friend and colleague,
Busty Taylor. His long view of both the genuine phenomenon and the human-made phenomenon provides
unique insight into the subject. His research results indicate the intelligence behind the phenomenon is
interacting with both crop circle researchers and many of the people who make the hoaxes.
He has publicly stated since the late 1980’s that the phenomenon indicates a future period of human chaos.
The period indicated, supported by current trends, can be changed with human awareness and he believes
there are serious eco-political implications and that the future direction of the planet is at the center of the
phenomenon. In the final analysis Andrews believes the phenomenon is challenging people to a higher
level of consciousness. Some native elders agree with Colin’s assessment which is supported by the
2012 Mayan Prophecy, which his latest book, along with his wife, speaks: 'The Complete Idiots
Guide to 2012'. Colin’s thirty year investigation continues with growing urgency for openness and
honesty in government and private research, respect for divergent opinions and co-operation between
investigators in all areas.
He is an accomplished photographer, who has been invited to show his photographs in art galleries
across the United States, including the Philadelphia Art Museum and the Cortland Jessup Art Gallery
in Provincetown, Cape Cod. One spectacular photograph of Princess Diana and Prince Charles
on their honeymoon was presented to the Queen and to this day also hangs in the Mayors Parlour at
Romsey, England - the home town of Prince Charles uncle, Lord Louis Mountbatten of Burma.
Colin Andrews, electrical engineer by profession, is the man who coined the term ‘Crop Circle’.
Among his many accomplishments: he started the first research organization, Circles Phenomenon
Research (CPR); designed high-tech surveillance operations attempting to film a circle being made;
and advised Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher’s cabinet and Queen Elizabeth on the mysterious
phenomenon. He compiled the largest data base in the world on the subject. Colin has written
numerous books including the classic Circular Evidence (1989) with co-author Pat Delgado, chosen
by the Queen for her prestigious Summer Reading List. He is frequently highlighted in documentaries
on the subject and was a consultant with the Mel Gibson movie Signs. His most recent books include
The Complete Idiots Guide to 2012 and The Complete Idiots Guide to the Akashic Record
written with his wife, Dr. Synthia Andrews. He is currently making his archives available to the public
in books such as Government Circles, The Andrews Catalogue and The Assessment.

Without prior knowledge of why he had been invited to Longleat Adventure Park in
England, he was lead to the center (red arrow) of the worlds longest maze which is one
and three quarters mile long, handed his copper dowsing rods and asked to dowse his
way to the exit (yellow arrow). Without a single error his rods took him directly via
many twists and turns to the exit. With just one bend to go, he was told he was in the
wrong place to test his confidence which he ignored and continued directly as the rods
lead him to the exit. Colin worked with elders in the Australian outback and impressed
them with his ability to confirm traditional routes taken by the Aborigine peoples
hundreds of years ago. He has also successfully dowsed human involvement in crop
One of many highly successful results of his
remote viewing skills was when he identified a
murderer in Washington DC before the police
knew who they were looking for.
The murderer became known as the Beltway
sniper, who randomly killed ten people over a
period of three weeks during October 2002,
creating near panic along the I95 near the city.
Apart from those he shot and killed he also
critically injured three. On the night of October
14th, 2002 while watching reports on TV of
another shooting, Colin Remotely Viewed a
young black man, 17years old, and sketched
him near the edge of a parking lot, some
distant from the victim. When the police
finally got their man, Colin's Sketch closely
resembled that of the young 17 year old black
man, Lee Boyd Malvo. The incident Colin
accessed was in the parking lot of Home
Depot, in Fairfax County, Virginia where FBI
intelligence analyst was shot dead as she left
the store - killed by Lee Boyd Malvo (watch
video above). Colin has interacted with many of
the best known Remote Viewers in the world,
and was invited to participate in programs at
