'Crop Circle' in Indonesia Draws Crowds
The 70-yard-wide geometric pattern looks like an intricately designed flower, includes a triangle and two smaller circles in the middle of a large circle.
"I think they were left by an alien space ship, like one I saw in TV," Krasakan resident Cahyo Utomo tells the Jakarta Post.
The crop circle has received so much attention police have blocked off the area with yellow tape and villagers have started charging entrance fees, reports Associated Press.
According to Guntur Purwanto, chief of Jogotirto village, the circle appeared over the weekend. The farmer who owns the property stumbled upon it around 6 a.m.
Indonesian's space agency, well-respected astronomers and nuclear agency officials have turned out to offer opinions on whether or not the crop circle was left by extraterrestrial beings. The consensus is that the crop circle did not come from a UFO, but nonetheless enthusiasts are fascinated and creating their own theories on how the circle came into existence.
