CHUALAR, Calif. —Cue “The X-Files” song. Mysterious, giant crop circles have appeared on a Chualar farm and startled observers into wondering if aliens landed in the Salinas Valley.
Two friends were driving on Chualar Canyon Road south of Salinas just before dawn Sunday when they witnessed strange bursts of green light flashing on the horizon. The duo turned on a video camera, pulled over, hopped a barbed-wire fence, and walked toward the lights.
“Dude, are you seeing this?” one friend said. “Dude, this is a crop circle.”
The friends investigated the field until they panicked and sprinted away. The duo wanted to remain anonymous, and they uploaded a video of their experience on YouTube under the name Cannot Say.

A friend and I were driving on Chualar Canyon Road south of Salinas, California before sunrise, and THIS happened. Needless to say, pretty wild, but we slipped away and it’s too good not to share. Created this account since I don’t want this tied to me. Still not sure what to make of it.
“Needless to say, pretty wild. But we slipped away and it’s too good not to share,” Cannot Say wrote.
Michael Myers commented, “Yes they mastered Intergalactic travel and can’t make a perfect circle.”
Paige Penrose chimed in, “That looks really neat, regardless of who did it! Great design.”
As of Monday night, no one had stepped forward to claim responsibility for the crop circles.
Looks like a computer circuit board, and likely there is some prankster message in the pattern of dots, which looks rather like braille, inside the rectangle. From what I can see of the image it looks like a repetition of the marks for “#”, then 1 or A, then 9 or I, than 2 or B in American Braille. The full text seems to read # 1 9 2 # 1 9 2 – 2 # 1 9 2 # 1 – # 1 9 2 # 1 9 2
Try for yourself
and from FaceBooker Begjan Markhashkhan, an illustration of the pattern so you can better read the dots.
I am sure we can expect any number of interpretations if only some blind person could read that for us.

One of our fellow GTers offered up that this pattern reminds him of the design of part of the pyramid complex at Teothucan, a structure called La Ciudadela, shown as a model here.
Here it is folks, from our reader Nicholas Eldridge, The Nvidia pin supercomputing chip. Looks like we have all bought into a bit of viral advertising.
