Visitor Tips and News About Flying Saucer in Town Named Mars
This listing for Mars, PA has a photo of a little spaceship in the small town park. I went by there today and the spaceship is not there anymore, and I did not see it around town. The four-way sign post is still there, however.[Billy, 07/04/2007]
September 2007: The spaceship is still there, it's just been moved (see new directions).
Charming, small town with weird name and a predilection towards marketing the space theme. In the center of town, right off of Main Street, there is a silver/purple space ship. The Mars Laundromat is in the background. To the side, and not visible in the picture, is a four-sided post proclaiming "Peace on Earth" in four languages.
The town travel agency featured a sign of a little green Martian holding a suitcase.[Ruth McRoberts, 10/27/2003]
