Visitor Tips and News About Flying Saucer in Town named Moonbeam
Flying saucer, just north of (and visible from) Highway 11 in a little park. Highway 11 is the main road through the town. There's not much to see along this remote route, so this is a welcome, humorous attraction.[Hank, 09/10/2012]
The flying saucer has been parked in Moonbeam since June 1991. Not all of the town's residents at the time were happy about it -- some reportedly wanted a giant fish -- but they've since embraced their civic symbol. The town now even has a little green alien as its cartoon mascot.
