Found in a rice field in a hamlet of Sleman, Yogyakarta, the crop circle consists of triangles and circles with a diameter of about 70 meters. 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 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 told the Jakarta Post on Monday. "It is impossible that this was made by wind or any ."
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," Perdana told local news agency kompas.com.
Sky's Amanda Walker, speaking from the airport, said the explosion ripped through the building's "meet and greet" international arrivals.
President Dmitry Medvedev said terrorists were behind the attack and vowed to track down those responsible.

It goes to show that while many things may look mundane, even normal initially, it's important to study the little details - that's where the answers may rest.
The total non institutional civilian labor force (Americans 16 years and older who are not in a institution -criminal, mental, or other types of facilities- or an active military duty) is reported as 238.889 million. Of these, we see:
- Employed: 139.206 million people (58.3% of labor force)
- Unemployed: 14.485 million people (6.1% of labor force)
Obviously, that can't be the total picture, we're only at 64.4%. This is why:
- Part time employed for economic reasons: 8.931 million people. This concerns people who want a full-time job but can't get one.
- Part time employed for non-economic reasons: 18.184 million people. Non-economic reasons include school or training, retirement or Social Security limits on earnings, but also childcare problems and family or personal obligations.
Jim Rogers: Well, the surprise is going to be how high the price of oil stays and how high it goes, because Justin we have had no major elephant oil discoveries in over 40 years. The International Energy Agency is going around the world pleading with people to listen. Known reserves of oil are declining. It is not good news. Unless somebody discovers a lot of oil very quickly, prices are going to go much higher over the next decade.
Justin Rowlatt: How high do you think the oil price could go then?
Jim Rogers: Justin, the price of oil is going to make new highs. It will go over $150 a barrel. It will probably go over $200 a barrel.
Justin Rowlatt: Over $200 a barrel? I mean that's a world record high, isn't it?
Jim Rogers: Of course it is, but Justin, the world is running out of known reserves of oil. Maybe there is a lot of oil in the world, but if there is, we don't know where it is or how to get to it.Read more
No charges have been laid and the case is likely to be closed.
Walter Zweifel reports
“As part of their election campaign, the leading opposition politicians at the time, including Boris Leontieff and Lucien Kimitete, were travelling in a small plane in theTuamotu archipelago when it disappeared. No wreckage has ever been found, giving cause to speculation that there may have been foul play or that the aircraft may have been diverted. Several investigations failed to explain what happened. The politicians’ wives even approached the French president to explore if the United States took satellite images of the Tuamotus at the time of the presumed crash. Without any result, the file is expected to be closed soon.” Source:
Huge volcanic eruptions caused the largest mass extinction in history, scientists believe.
The last Permian extinction, also known as the Great Dying, devastated life on Earth when it took place 250million years ago.
It saw 95 per cent of sea life wiped out and 70 per cent of animals on land killed.
While it is widely accepted that a meteorite was at least the partial cause for ending the dinosaur era 65million years ago, it was unclear what led to the earlier, more severe extinction.

Billy Robinson from Ballynure Angling Club walked a few miles alongside the river on Sunday afternoon.
He said he saw dead fish from Doagh bridge right up towards Ballyclare.
"There are quite a few dead trout, from small fish, up to fish weighing three quarters of a pound to a pound in weight, so it seems to be a total fish kill," he said.
"I'm looking over the bridge at the moment and there must be around 30 or 40 fish dead in the space of a few yards." Source..
