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.
