When I lived in Whitewood Saskatchewan in the early 1970s, everyone in our remote rural area heard about and saw photos of crop circles left in a wheat field in nearby Langbank. A farmer saw three circular UFOs leave his cropland with burned earth circles in his wheatfield as a testimony to their reality. No one questioned this as a hoax, because the circles were so large and precise, the earth so altered, and the farmer so unsophisticated and trusted by his neighbors.

This event was covered by the Whitewood Herald and the Esterhazy newspaper. I saw the photos and talked with some of the neighboring farmers and was convinved of the authenticity of this event. But the name of the farmer escapes me now...I'd be very interested to hear more about this occurence.
