CHUALAR, CA – Crop circles, those mysterious formations that turn up in fields around the world, appeared in a field near Chuala, Calif., near Salinas, Monday morning.

By the afternoon, the story had gone viral, bringing lookie-lous and the news to get a glimpse at what might be signs from another world.

A video taken by some dudes might have caught the crop circle culprit in the act.

The work of a higher form of intelligence? Or, maybe artistically gifted pranksters?
