Strange Circle in Lone Star

It's not exactly a crop circle, but some East Texans in Lone Star are baffled by some strange markings on the ground. In the quiet neighborhood, folks are looking skyward. Residents of Lone Star feel they've had an encounter. Lone Star resident Gayle Tigert thinks that someone or something made a strange circle pattern on her front lawn that she discovered on Monday.

Odd dusty burned grass in regular intervals has many thinking  of outer space. We often here tales of circles in crop fields, but did a U.F.O. actually land in an apartment section?

City authorities are explaining it as fungus, but don't really have an answer. Whether a prank or a natural phenomenon, it remains a mystery.
