Update January 30, 2011: Sleman Crop Circles Are Man-Made

A 70-meter-wide crop circle was reportedly spotted on Monday, January 24, 2011 in a rice field in Sleman, Yogyakarta in Indonesia.

According to reports, the pattern looks like an intricately designed flower. It appeared in the middle of the green paddies and has drawn so much attention to thousands of curious visitors.

The cause of the crop circles is not yet clear and has been rumored that it might be a UFO trace.

“The circles were there since yesterday morning. I think they were left by an alien space ship, like one I saw in TV. It is impossible that this was made by the wind or any animal,” Krasakan resident Cahyo Utomo said on Monday.

Meanwhile, some residents said that they saw a tornado on Saturday evening and have seen traces in their fields the following day. However, according to Budi Waluyo, head of the Meteorology, Climatology and Geology Agency in Yogyakarta, there were no records of tornado in the province or its surrouding areas on Saturday and Sunday. He also added that even if a tornado did occur, it would leave a distinctive snaking trail, not a crop circle.

Reports said that, police officers have decided to block the area with a yellow tape, while farmers have fenced off the area to prevent their fields from being trampled by sightseers.

Furthermore, villagers reportedly charging entrance fees for those who wanted to see the area. It was also said that there were vendors who are selling pictures of the crop circle.

According to Thomas Djamaluddin, head of the atmospheric sciences and chief of astronomy research at the National Aeronautics and Space Agency, “we will not send investigators to the scene because we suspect the crop circle involves human invention, not natural phenomena, nor scientific phenomena associated with outer space creatures commonly referred to as aliens.”
