Two crop circles on same day in Brazil

The other eye-opening part of this story is that UFO researchers have offered a $20,000 reward to anyone who can show how the circles were faked. And by fake, of course, they mean created by humans.

Crop circles are mysterious, elaborate designs that unexpectedly show up in farmers' fields seemingly overnight. Explanations have run the gamut of their being left here by UFOs; unusual weather patterns; military experiments; and the most accepted theory of the circles is that they're the work of highly artistic hoaxers. The first Brazilian circle was discovered around 7 a.m. on Nov. 2, followed a short time later by the second circle.

A detailed report was made by Antonio Inajar Kurowski, a professor at the Criminology Institute of Parana. Both circles were approximately 177 feet in diameter, the first one found about a half mile outside Ipuacu while the second was about two miles out of town. "The intelligence that produced this phenomenon certainly wanted it to be seen, because it appears splendidly from the nearby highway."

In response to critics who quickly condemn the ground designs as the work of hoaxers, Gevaerd has announced that his publication will award $20,000 to anybody who claims to have made these crop circles and can show how they did it. The final determination of this most recent case is still up for grabs, and nobody has yet to claim the $20,000 reward.
