Indonesian rice farmers in Slemen, Yogyakarta, got quite a surprise Sunday morning when they discovered that overnight a large crop circle had mysteriously formed in one of their fields.
The circle, which also includes internal geometric patterns of a triangle and smaller circles, has an overall diameter of nearly 90 feet, according to The Jakarta Post.
One resident, Cahyo Utomo, speculated that the odd piece of rice field artwork wasn't man-made. "The circles were there since yesterday morning. I think they were left by an alien spaceship," he said."It is impossible that this was made by the wind or any animal," he added.
Whether crafted by humans or aliens, thousands of crop circles have been reported all over the world for many decades, but with a higher number recorded in England. And they're not always circular, with some of the more intricate and complex ones looking like strange animals or even scientific symbols or DNA sequences.
The patterns are generally created by something that flattens various crops, like rice, wheat and rye, and they're usually discovered by farmers in the early morning where they didn't exist the night before.
