Crop circles appeared in a farmer's field in Duhamel, Alberta, in 1967. At the time, crop circles were virtually unknown.
The discovery of the circles was preceded by reports of UFO sightings around the town. (continued below)
A farmer by the name of Schielke discovered the strange occurrence on Saturday, August 5, 1967, after a night of heavy rains. This was the first time he had been to his fields in weeks, so the circles could have appeared at any time during that period.
The circles were composed of four circular marks approximately 30 feet (9.1 m) in diameter.
Mr. Schielke always stressed that the marks could not have been made by his equipment, and he did not believe in UFOs. The marks varied from five to seven inches wide, and the smallest circular mark was 31 ft., 9 in. in diameter.
Three of the rings were essentially circular, with the largest mark being slightly elliptical, varying from 34 ft., 5 in. to 36 ft., 3 in. There were no exhaust blasts, scorch marks or disturbances of the soil, and vegetation within the circles had apparently been removed by the object that made the marks.
The official investigation report implies that the marks were most likely left by a 135-ton aircraft or spacecraft.5
This case is described as "unsolved" by Canada's Department of National Defence.
