Indonesian Crop Circles - Alien life? Indonesia's first set of crop circles have appeared in the country and locals call it evidence of alien life. They were found in a rice field displaying shapes that included triangles.

While some observes say the shapes are manmade, local scientists and government officials are struggling for a concrete explanation, leaving UFO enthusiasts murmuring of extraterrestrials.

"According to several residents, they saw a tornado on Saturday evening," said Ngadiran, one of six farmers who owns the land in Sleman. "On Sunday afternoon, we saw the footprint in our fields."

The pattern was first reported by a farmer, Tukiman, on Sunday at 6 a.m. His story drew hordes of people, causing heavy traffic congestion in the region. Enthusiastic locals all seem to have their own theory on the genesis of the mysterious occurrence. "I think they were left by an alien space ship, like one I saw on TV," Krasakan resident Cahyo Utomo said in a statement.

Others noted the pattern's unique symbology. "This particular crop circle is fascinating because of its striking resemblance to the muladhara chakra -- one of the basic chakras in Tantric Hinduism," one witness said. But officials remain skeptical on evidence of a close encounter of the third kind. "We will not send investigators to the scene because we suspect the crop circle involves human intervention," Thomas Djamaluddin, chief of astronomy research at Indonesia's space agency, said in a statement.
