Is there life on Mars? We may never know. Is there life in Mars, Pennsylvania? There certainly is.

Mars, Pennsylvania is a town with an unusual name. But the citizens embrace their celestial moniker and even erected a roadside attraction in it’s honor: a real-life flying saucer in Mars, Pennsylvania.

This spaceship looks like something that fell straight out of the sky… or at least out of a 1960s science fiction movie. Located in the town square, the giant silver Mars Flying Saucer is a perfect place for locals to sit and relax amongst on a warm summer day. Or for tourists to stop by to take plenty of quirky photos to share on Facebook. Or for gaggles of aliens to congregate at to discuss how they will take over the world.

Mars, Pennsylvania might not be quite the same as Mars, the Planet. But, the small borough in Butler County does have a population of 1,699 (according to the 2010 census) which is 1,699 more people than we’ve found on the planet Mars. Just saying.

Of course, there is the distinct possibility that this flying saucer is a real flying saucer straight from outer space and that all of the citizens of the town are really aliens. I mean, it’s always possible.

Whether or not you think this UFO is authentic or not, it’s a fun stop for your next Pennsylvania road trip. You can tell everyone you know that you’re going to MARS!

And how many people do you know who can say that?
