Bafflingly Elaborate Crop Circle Discovered In California
They may not hold the same mystery that they once did, but that's not to say that crop circles aren't able to truly blow us away from time to time.
Discovered yesterday on a farm in California, this microchip-shaped crop circle is a perfect example of a crop circle's ability to trigger some good old fashioned awe. Displaying a cunning mix of curved and straight lines, the crop circle is receiving an ever-increasing level of buzz since a video of its discovery hit Youtube yesterday. Many see this as a message from an alien civilization, whereas others are happy to just revel a beautiful example of what has become a much-maligned form of art.
While the video may not give too much of the crop circle away, images taken by Julie Belanger of the 111th group of aerial photographers show the work in all its glory.
Witnesses in the Salinas area of California reported seeing large teams of people working in the field where the crop circle was discovered, but as of yet, nobody has claimed it as their own. Whether you believe this to be of extraterrestrial origin or just students playing with crops, i'm sure you'll all agree that whoever did this deserves a tip of the hat.
