Never-before-seen photos reveal extraordinary wedge-shaped impressions and oval imprints left in a grass field by UFOs during famous 1994 sighting witnessed by more than 60 schoolchildren in Zimbabwe.
New photos obtained by DailyMail.com show imprints in the ground left by an alleged UFO that was seen by over 60 witnesses in a famous 1994 sighting in the southern African country of Zimbabwe.
A class of 62 students at the Ariel School in Ruwa, said they saw a disc-shaped craft land in a field behind their playground on Friday September 16, 1994 - and some even claimed humanoids emerged from the craft.
The extraordinary case has fascinated researchers for decades, however, the one element that had been lacking was physical evidence of the landing.
Photographer Gunter Hofer, one of the first on the scene, shared his photos with DailyMail.com showing wedge-shaped impressions in the 'rock-hard' soil and an oval imprint in the grass allegedly left by the craft.
Hofer initially couldn't find anything in the area where many of the kids had seen a craft that Friday, but later realized some of them had also seen UFOs the previous day on the other end of the field.
It was there that he found 'two oval shapes' and 'a wedge-shaped marking' that had flattened the grass.
'The earth there was rock-solid due to the long drought in Zimbabwe,' Hofer said. 'So whatever made that mark really dug in hard.'
The newly unearthed photo evidence was shared with DailyMail.com ahead of the release of a new documentary, Ariel Phenomenon, released Thursday, featuring interviews with the students.

A whole class of children at the Ariel School in Ruwa drew media attention nearly 30 years ago after they said they had seen a disc-shaped craft land in a field behind their playground one Friday morning in September 1994 – and some even said they saw humanoid beings come out from the craft and communicate with them.
A Pulitzer Prize-winning head of psychiatry at Harvard interviewed many of the 62 children at length shortly after, and concluded they were telling the truth. Now adults, they have all stuck to their stories for decades.
Previously unseen photo evidence has been shared with DailyMail.com ahead of the release of a new documentary, Ariel Phenomenon, about the astonishing incident.
The stunning revelation also comes as interest in UFOs is growing in the United States.
