Summary

I wanted something to rest on my floating magnet, and what better than a UFO.

On a road trip through New Mexico last March (between Muleshoe, Texas and Santa Fe, New Mexico--about 100 miles NW of Roswell) we took a photo out the window of the scenic nothingness. Looking at the photos after the trip, I noticed a bright spot in the clouds. I zoomed in and saw the three lights that (with a lot of imagination) resulted in a scanned clay floating figure.

Whatever caused the lights, there were two more (really small and fuzzy) in the same photo.

For the magnetic floating base, goto:

Instructions

I made this using clay and scanned on the Replicator.
I squashed the saucer from top to bottom in the printing software before generating the print file.
