The crop circle near Devizes

It measures a huge 333ft across and appeared over the weekend in a field of striking yellow oil seed rape.

While crop formations have been known in April, most usually start being discovered in early May and are smaller affairs.

It is located beneath Oliver's Castle, a hilltop archaeological site near Devizes, famous among crop circle devotees as the spot video footage supposedly showed a crop circle being made by two balls of light.


'Ghost yacht' found off Australia

All the vessel's sails were up, although one was badly torn.

Emergency services in Australia have launched a search for the three-man crew of a yacht found drifting off the North Queensland coast.

The vessel was found with its engine running, and a table laid for dinner, but there were no signs of any people.

An air and sea rescue operation has been launched to retrace the yacht's voyage, and pinpoint the search area.

The three-crew members are thought to have set sail for Townsville from Airlie Beach on Sunday.

The 12m (40 foot) catamaran was spotted by a helicopter on Wednesday, but a rescue team only reached the boat on Friday, and confirmed that there was no one aboard.


Ohio residents say mystery animals roaming woods resemble goats, sheep, deer

Chesterland, Ohio - Is it a goat? Is it a sheep? No, it's a ... what is that thing?

Wildlife experts haven't been able to positively identify at least three animals spotted roaming the woods in Chester Township, about 30 kilometres east of Cleveland, over the past few months. "We're not exactly sure what they are," said Allen Lea of the Ohio Division of Wildlife, which has reviewed photos taken by a resident. "But they're definitely not a native species. They're not where they belong."

Police have received calls from residents offering varying descriptions, with possible IDs including bighorn sheep and wild goat.

Sal LaPuma, an avid outdoorsman, said he recently got within 9 metres of one of the animals before it ran away.

"The moment I saw it, I knew it was out of place," he said.


Erebus crash blamed for Antarctica 'ghosts'

A supernatural experience in Antarctica on Friday the 13th has left a winter worker convinced of the existence of ghosts on the frozen continent.

American Allie Barden was sent to work in a stores building at McMurdo Station, the United States base near New Zealand's Scott Base, and knew it was empty because it was padlocked from outside when she arrived.

"As soon as I entered, something was weird," she said.

"I took a couple of steps in (and) the hair on the top of my head stood on end - footsteps upstairs; undeniably footsteps. A slow cadence of footsteps.

"I froze. It went from the back of the building to the front."

Kenya: Village Haunted As Children Suffer From Strange Disease

Residents of a village in Kisii are living in fear of an unknown enemy who has inflicted their children with a strange ailment.

They are even afraid of talking about the strange attacks and are scared of praying, because they have been warned not to try it.

Seven children in the village have been afflicted, and exhibit strange symptoms bordering on epilepsy and hysteria, uttering incomprehensible words. The residents now believe they have been hit by evil spirits.

They claim to have been warned by unknown people through letters that if they pray or continue to discuss what is happening to their children, they will all die and their flesh eaten at an undisclosed "feasting point".

Mr Charles Ongeri's family is one of those that have come face to face with the mysterious phenomenon that has made the victims' families and friends give up hope of medical or spiritual help. They just hope that all will be well some day and that what has befallen them will come to an end just as mysteriously as it started.

Ellensburg Unexplained

The expansive Ellensburg horizon has turned up more than just strong winds and sunny skies over the years.

Many residents have seen some strange things flying over the Kittitas Valley. A vast number are skeptics and think perhaps what they saw came possibly from the U.S. Army Yakima Training Center. Others are pretty sure what they saw was not from around this neck of the galaxy.
