    If the alien race was to visit the UK, where do you think they might go?  The bright lights of London, perhaps upto Edinburgh for some history or maybe in the delights of Wiltshire.

    Thanks to the Guardian Datastore we have the list of every crop circle in the UK, for 2009, with grid co-ordinates.  So it’s a perfect opportunity to see which places the aliens love to visit:

    So it looks like Wiltshire has a lot of activity, which we can focus in on.
