Crop circles return to Wash. town

WILBUR, Wash., Aug. 13 (UPI) -- Residents of a small Washington town say mysterious crop circles have appeared in wheat fields for the second time in three years.

Locals in Wilbur, a town of 960 people 65 miles west of Spokane, Wash., said the talk of the town has been the latest crop designs, discovered in late July on the Haden family's wheat farm, The Seattle Times reported Thursday.

"This is the one where they put the spaceship landing pad down," Keith Haden joked while pointing out a portion of the design, which encompasses five rings of varying sizes and one complete circle.

Haden and most other locals expressed skepticism about any real extraterrestrial involvement in the design, but a previous crop circle discovered in the town in June 2007 brought loads of tourists and research groups to the area. The Wilbur Chamber of Commerce passed a tongue-in-cheek resolution last year giving "thanks to the Aliens who made Wilbur their Vacation Destination!"
