Muckaty Station, 110km north of Tennant Creek, has been home to various UFO sightings over the years but now an unexplained marking has appeared on the land.
Station manager Ray Aylett has said he thinks the spot – pictured on our front page today – is a crop circle.
“There’s no other explanation,” he said.
“Other ground around there is rough and in the circle it’s all smooth.”
OFFICIAL NT UFO REPORTS WERE RELEASED FROM THE NATIONAL ARCHIVES SERVICES
Mr Aylett said he had seen UFOs at Muckaty Station for many years but they have never bothered to visit him.
“I’ve been trying to get them to come and have a beer, a steak and a yarn, but the bastards won’t come near me.”
On the Tuesday after Easter, Mr Aylett said he saw what looked like rectangular clouds in the sky as he drove back to the station from Elliott.
Prior to the crop circle sighting, the remote station had been drenched by rain, making the road inaccessible in the wet, but once it dried out the strange shape became clear.

He said his bore runner Kym Bott didn’t notice the circle when he went out there on his motorbike but two weeks later on April 7 the crop circle was discovered when Mr Aylett went to grade the road.
When he was out mustering he flew over the area to see if there were any other circles around, but found only one.
He is not sure if the aliens are trying to make contact, but whenever he spots UFOs Mr Aylett is out with his torch waving hello.
