Parkgoers in Weymouth, Massachusetts came across a bizarre mystery at the Great Esker Park on Monday, October 2nd. Visitors of the park discovered a massive metallic flying saucer seemingly crashed near the bank of the Back River which abuts the park. Park officials rushed to the scene in anticipation of finding a downed alien craft, but were disappointed to find what is clearly a haphazard forgery. Despite its clearly terrestrial origins, the fake UFO is still proving to be a bizarre and unsolved mystery.
The large, silver object has no markings or identifying information whatsoever aside from a single barcode. The inner frame appears to be wood lined with cardboard, while the outer silver shell is some sort of pliable metal.
Park employees with the Weymouth Recreation Division originally speculated that the saucer-shaped object could be some form of crude tent or shelter built by a vagrant or mentally ill individual. However, just exactly how someone could have constructed it without attracting attention or moved it into the park remains a mystery.
Andrew Hultin, a program coordinator for Weymouth Recreation Division, says the object has baffled his staff:
It was pretty heavy to lift and it is not something that anyone of us could have moved by ourselves. It is about 25-feet long and 10-feet wide with an exterior shell made of shiny silver material. We have no idea who might have built this thing or how it could have got there. It was found about 200 yards in the woods. Other than that we have no other information. We are puzzled. There is no way for us to remove it without destroying it. It is still at the site. We are contemplating our next step.
Is this some kids’ idea of a prank, or have alien visitors fallen on hard times and turned to shoddy aerospace contractors in light of some sort of intergalactic recession? If you know anything about the Weymouth saucer, park officials would like to speak with you.
