Hundreds of sheep have caused a stir after they were spotted standing in concentric circles.

Christopher Hogg, 47, had been out on his bike when he saw the bizarre spectacle in a field in Rottingdean, East Sussex.

The father-of-one later shared photos of the unusual occurence to Facebook before dozens of social media users claimed it looked like an ‘alien ship’.

The animals has actually formed the incredible pattern by following a sheep snacker, a type of livestock feeder, as it dispensed their food in a circle across the field.

‘I was on my daily cycle and came over the hill and saw this magnificent circle,’ Chris told Jam Press.

‘At that point I was about half a mile away, which made me think that whatever it was, it was huge.

‘It was saucer-shaped, like an alien ship. It was beautiful, but also in 2021 a bit too weird for comfort.

‘I cycled closer and closer and then realised the circle was sheep!’

Chris, who is a lecturer at Royal Holloway University, London, said he thought the sheep were acting ‘weirdly’.

He said: ‘The sheep are usually noisy, I go past them every day, but this day they were very still and calm.

‘It was so quiet, like they were in a trance. It was very eerie.’

The father-of-one rushed home and showed the photos of the flock to his wife Victoria and son Louis who both thought it was ‘nuts’.

He also shared the snaps to Facebook where other users tried to figure out what was happening in the shot.

Chris added: ‘There was lots of debate whether it was a crop or flock circle and or if the sheep were being summoned by a strange force.

‘Others thought they might be pranking the farmer.

‘We all agreed it was a mystery that warranted the recall of Mulder and Scully!’
