Houston, TX-- NASA astronomers have something new to look upon in the night sky, courtesy of marijuana smokers from around the world. Sky-watchers have spotted a faint ring of gray marijuana smoke orbiting our planet. The ring extends about half way to the moon and can only be seen through a telescope at this time.
Famed NASA astronomer Dr. Karl Saygun is credited with the discovery. He gave some details about the ring to the press:
"We know the gas giant planets--Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune all have rings. Now our own small planet has a ring too!" said Dr. Saygun with delight.
Dr Saygun performed a mass spectrograph on the ring and made an astonishing discovery. The ring is made from marijuana smoke.
"When someone exhales a puff of marijuana smoke, the smoke just keeps going up in the sky--all the way to Outer Space!" said Dr. Saygun.
Astronomers say the ring is growing every day and it will soon be visible without a telescope.
"The ring is made of b-ba-bah-billions and b-ba-bah-billyyyyons of puffs of marijuana smoke." stammered Dr. Saygun. "Let's keep it growing!"
The famed astronomer then whipped out a blunt from the pocket of his white lab coat and began smoking it.
"I will do my part to make the ring keep growing." said Dr. Saygun as he exhaled a ring of gray smoke. "I hope all of you will do your part too."
