Is it the work of aliens or practical jokers? An unusual creation has popped up on a farm just south of the Bay Area.
A giant crop circle has appeared on Chualar farm in Salinas, Calif.
Aerial photographer Julie Belanger spotted the crop circle as she was flying over the valley Monday morning.
Belanger took the photo you see here as well as this raw video.
"It was beautiful. Quite beautiful," Belanger told NBC affiliate KSBW. "I believe it's possible that aliens exist, but I don't know if they would bother making a crop circle to give us a message."
It’s more likely that it’s all part of publicity stunt. According to MontereyHerald.com, guards from a South Bay security company were on hand Monday morning on behalf of their client, whose identity they could not reveal.
Adding to the mystery is this YouTube video posted today by user “Cannot Say” of a couple of friends stumbling upon the crop circle before sunrise.
