It is over 20' tall, 18' long and 16' wide. It weighs about a ton, plus another ton for the support structure. The 10"diameter support pole with three 6" diameter pipe legs is buried 5' deep in an 8' x 10' x 5' block of reinforced concrete and holds the spaceship 12' off the ground. The spaceship was fabricated modifying a vintage Curtiss Wright travel trailer, wiring it with neon and LED lights, and populating it with about 30 alien tourists.
