Mysterious photos that show a flock of sheep standing in a bizarre circle pattern have baffled social media users.
And the man who spotted the strange phenomenon says he initially believed it was a spaceship like “something out of the X Files”.
A dad out for a cycle was baffled after spotting a flock of sheep gathered in a circle near Rottingdean in East Sussex.
The 47-year-old said: “I was on my daily cycle when I came over the hill and saw this magnificent circle.
“At that point I was about half a mile away, which made me think that whatever it was, it was huge.
“It was saucer-shaped, like an alien ship.
“And it was beautiful – but also a bit too weird for comfort.
“I cycled a bit closer and then realised the circle was made of sheep.”
He said he’s never seen the creatures behave that way before.
“The sheep are usually noisy,” he said.
“I go past them every day, but this day they were very still and calm.
“It was so quiet, like they were in a trance. It was very eerie.”
why did the sheep behave in such a way?
There is lots of debate as to whether it was a crop or flock circle, or if the sheep were being summoned by a strange force.
Others thought they might be pranking the farmer.
I think we all agree it is a mystery that warrant the recall of Mulder and Scully. [The Sun]
