A giant, intricate crop circle discovered in a Salinas, Calif., field has raised questions about its earthly or alien source.
“We were on a photo flight this morning and came across it," aerial photographer Julie Belanger told NBC News on Monday
. "It was so unique in the middle of a field.”

Belanger said she had not heard about the circle and flew over the farm by coincidence.
"It was beautiful. Quite beautiful," Belanger told 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."
The landowner was unaware of how the acre-wide circle occurred and hired security guards to keep the area from “becoming a circus,” the Monterey Herald reported
So far no one has claimed responsibility.
The crop circle was the subject of a 2-minute YouTube video posted Monday under the name Cannot Say. In it two men, who wish to remain anonymous, share their experience.
In the video the friends spot green flashing lights in a field while driving along Chualar Canyon Road south of Salinas. They park, hop a barbed-wire fence and see a pushed-down area.
“Dude,” says one, “Are you seeing this?”
Viewers of the video were unconvinced that aliens had anything to do with the circular creation.
“So stupid,” wrote one poster. “The guys that made this video are the ones that made the circle.”
