Riverbed circles spawn UFO speculation

Antonio Padilla is not a believer in UFOs, but a set of unexplained circles found this week in the middle of a dry Rio Grande has him wondering.

The sand circles -- no crops involved -- could be a sign of aliens in the borderland or a not-so-elaborate hoax in a spot of dry riverbed between Texas and New Mexico.

"I know it's hard to believe. I don't know. It's pretty weird," Padilla, 26, said while looking over the 35-foot-wide series of circles in the riverbed.

The largest circle contains three other circles, each made by 8-inch deep trenches on a sand berm between Artcraft and Borderland roads in the Upper Valley.

Padilla, of Sunland Park, learned of the circles from a co-worker at a plant in nearby Santa Teresa. Padilla said a friend of a friend claimed to be walking in the area Tuesday night when he saw a mysterious light. The friend could not be reached for comment.
