UFOs in the daily Press:

Crop cirlces on a Queensland farm, Australia:

This article was published in the daily newspaper The Courier-Mail, Queensland, Australia, on May 16, 2003.

Crop circles puzzle farmer.

Thirty crop circles appeared on a sorghum farm in Australia's state of Queensland last week. And the farm's human residents may have heard the circles' actual creation.

The overnight appearance of dozens of bizarre crop circles in a field of sorghum has spooked a Sunshine Coast hinterland farmer and his workers.

The phenomenon, which was accompanied by loud "zapping noises," a flash of green light, lost power and barking dogs has the Gowen family of Glass House Mountains flumoxed.

Fifth-generation landowner Kel Gowen said he was woken about midnight Wednesday by two loud "zaps."

His farm hand, Noel Brady, whose cottage overlooks the four hectares of sorghum, said he was also woken by the first zapping sound, which was followed by the loss of power and bright green flashes.

Mr. Gowen said it was only during a routine check of his property early yesterday morning that he noticed the thirty flattened circles in the sorghum.

Mr. Gowen said his family had never taken notice of stories of crop circles or UFOs.
