Buck Rogers/Flash Gordon Rocket

Outside of Rocket Donuts you can find several pieces of art. One is a fully lit 1930ish rocket; it looks like a space ship out of Buck Rogers or Flash Gordon. You will also find several other pieces of art around the intersection. One is a big wooden ball and a large magic wand or scepter.
