Numbers of visitors to Mae Jan District looked for proof of the alien at the scene. The villagers still believed that what they witnessed was a mysterious entity or an extra-terrestrial being. R
Mae Jan District residents were excited over the sight of the unidentified entity floating into the sky above the rice farm. They believed it was an extra-terrestrial being. R
The alien witnessing at Mae Jan, Chiang Rai, was countered by a resident of Chiang San District. The man living 10 kilometers away from the area the entity was seen claimed that the incident might have something to do with the inflated doll he got when attending his relative’s graduation ceremony in Chiang Mai. R
Residents of Huay Nam Rak Village were still certain that the entity they witnessed was an extra-terrestrial being. They claimed that features of Tongmuan’s rubber doll did not match the alien being seen. The villagers stated further that they saw the alien nodding, and the way it floated was different from a balloon floating. R

"Villagers claim ET sighting"
Published on Sep 09 , 2005
Chiang Rai - Villagers claimed they today (Friday) morning witnessed an "alien" or extra-terrestrial being which appeared like a small-body man with large head and about 70 centimetres [about 2 feet] tall.
Over 10 residents of Huay Nam Rak Village in Mae Jan district's Tambon Janjawa said they saw the ET today morning in a rice field outside the village.
Sawaeng Boonyalak, 35, said he heard from friends that they saw the alien so he rushed to see it.
"The alien is about 70 cm high and has yellow skin and flat chest. Its mouth is very tiny. It has bald big head with big eyes and big ears," Sawaeng said.
He claimed that several villagers also witnessed the ET at the same time with him.
Sawaeng said the alien wandered around in the field for about an hour without caring the villagers who were looking at it.
"Suddenly, the alien floated to a tree top. After more villagers came to see it, it floated into the sky into the bright light," Sawaeng said.
He said villagers did not find any foot print of the being in the area.
Buakaew Intaweng, 59, said she initially thought the alien was a doll but it could move around.
Mae Jan district chief Wisit Sitthisombat said he interviewed over ten villagers and they consistently testified about sighting the alien.
"I asked them to draw what they have seen and the picture came out similarly," Wisit said.

"Thai TV, today, reported on an entity seen in NW Thailand near
Chieng Mai. The entity was seen near a rice farm by four or five
people. It had a large head and a yellow body. The phantasm then
stretched into the sky and disappeared. The news anchor called
this a "jahn binh" or flying saucer." (Terry Colvin, UFO Updates Mailing List, Sept. 10, 2005)
