Mysterious Circle in Kazakhstan Raises Questions
Written By: Diario El Norte
When the owner of one of the gardens located on Aerdrómnaya Street in Zhitikaya (Qostanay Region) went out in the morning to her front yard, she could not believe her eyes.
All that was left of the spot where a vegetable garden grew, in the shade of a with a leafy apple tree, was a perfect circle measuring 2 meters in diameter. What were left of her vegetables were stamped into the ground.
The 60 year-old woman pointed out that the parties responsible for creating the circle were "aliens" -- which is exaclty what she told Zhitikaya police officers, who had already been alerted to several UFO sightings the previous day.
The woman’s neighbors rejected any doubts about her sanity. A sign of the seriousness with which Kazakh authorities are treating the case can be seen in the immediate dispatching of a team of experts to the city to study this "X-file" of the Central Asian steppes.
This northern region of Kazakhstan borders Russia in a region which formerly contained several cities devoted to the production of nuclear weapons and secret military devices--locations forbidden to outsiders.
