    Certainly a much simpler (and therefore far, far, FAR more likely) explanation than an alien spacecraft.

    It's a pie tin with a mini-tart tin stuck on the top, scotch tape, and what appear to be a few mangled jujubes and a DOTS candy stuck to the roof.

    It may not fly but it probably tasted good. [​IMG]

    That's a pretty big pie tin! Look at the size compared to the tire tracks next to it.

    It's probably an alien spaceship...

    ...that, or someone built a flying saucer looking thing out of plywood [​IMG]

    If that's a UFO, it's the white-trashiest UFO ever. That thing should be up on blocks orbiting a moon somewhere. [​IMG]

    George Noory actually isn't as bad as Art Bell. Art really likes to "ham" it up with the sensationalism and dramatism. It is entertaining though. It was Art that interviewed the guy that sent in the picture. Of course nobody asked why someone didn't get in the car and go see it if it really existed. HAHAHA I guess that would have ruined the story and the entertainment.

    The tire tracks are probably from a snake that just slithered by and the "trees" are probably those little shrubs that grow in the desert and are only a few inches high.

    Exactly. To me all that picture is is a demonstration of forced perspective.

    Nah... I still say someone went out into the desert and built themselves a flying saucer. The shrubs definitely don't look like miniature shrubs and there are parallel tracks. I haven't yet seen a snake leave double tracks [​IMG].

    I was just thinking if i lived in the desert I would build an outhouse like that...

    LOL! Pilot was obviously BS-ing when he said "he had been flying over the same area for years and had never seen it before". sorry if i'm spoiling the fun here, but it looks more like a er, hideout for hedonistic excesses.

    Nice find [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I see the folks at Coast to Coast AM were also notified of this [​IMG] I'm guessing that's where you got the link. Looks like a nice structure to... uhm... recreate in [​IMG]

    Wow, I am surprised I thought for sure it was a Pie tin.

    It is without question an alien spacecraft. No other possibility.
