Villagers have been left stumped after a claiming to have seen UFO and a “humanoid figure”.
The unidentified figure was spotted by agricultural workers in Kanagal village in Periyapatna taluk of Mysuru district at around 2 pm on Thursday, as they worked in fields.
They said the figure came towards them from a red spacecraft that emerged from the clouds.
It allegedly took off just seconds after landing and there were flashes and sparks around it.
Nigel Watson, author of the UFO Investigations Manual, said: “Sightings of flying people are not uncommon and such sightings have occurred long before the interest in flying saucers or aliens.
“What these villagers saw is hard to say, though it certainly had an impact on them and that it was something unusual.”
Since the sighting, people with an interest in aliens have been making the trip to Kenagal to talk to the women involved.
T A Manjunatha, an alien enthusiast. said: “The women claim that the spacecraft descended close to 500 feet from them and they could spot humanoid figures. They have no clue about aliens and they have not even heard about such things. So we are assuming that they are not lying.”
“The women could have mistaken some kind of a flying object as a spacecraft. Besides, it was a cloudy day and this has to be probed,” he added.
The alien enthusiasts intend to bring the matter to the attention of the government.
