The world’s first crop circle was discovered in January of 1966 near the unassuming Queensland town of Tully by a startled banana farmer.
George Pedley was driving his tractor past Horseshoe Lagoon at Euramo and initially thought the deafening hissing noise he could hear was coming from a puncture in one of his tyres.
Then he looked up and saw a flying saucer rise at great speed and zoom away.
Further inspection revealed a 9.1m circle of floating reeds fused together as if by the heat and spinning clockwise.
The Royal Australian Air Force attempted to blame the strange phenomenon on a whirlwind but the locals were having none of it and Tully made headlines around the world.
