Drone sent to ‘investigate’ mysterious crop circles in southern Russia (VIDEO)

Still from Ruptly video
Puzzled by the “alien patterns” in a wheat field in the Republic of Adygea earlier this week, local residents sent a drone to investigate the series of mysterious crop circles. Meanwhile similar shapes have also surfaced in the Moscow region.

Amazing aerial footage shot from a drone, shows the six rings found in a regular field of crops in the foothills of the Western Caucasus Mountains. The largest in a series of circles is 13 meters (42 feet) in diameter. The biggest two circles also had strange half a meter deep “craters” in their centers.

The crop pattern was discovered on Tuesday by a local farmer, who claimed the circles were not there the night before. Because of the high winds, aerial footage was out of the question at the time of the discovery.

Similar circles were discovered in the region three times over the past 15 years, making it one of the top UFO enthusiast attractions. Popular explanations cite “aliens” and “electromagnetic radiation” as possible causes. Those who don’t believe in extraterrestrial creatures say the circles are man-made.

These are exactly the theories Ufologists are now checking in the Moscow region, where two large oval geometrical shapes and a 10-meter-wide circle were discovered in the village of Mirny.

Volunteers now plan to take soil samples, hoping to determine the origin of the geometrical shapes. The local administration believes the oval shapes could be the remnants of an old abandoned road that was once in the area. The circle however remains a mystery.
