Lake Chebarkul, Russia - Dredged up from the murky depths of a Chelyabinsk lake a carving of an alien smoking madonna has been discovered on a five tonne fragment of charred space rock.
Divers searching for remains of February's meteorite found the extraterrestrial carving on a huge lump of blackened fusion crust rock which crashed into the Central Russian lake at 1,000 mph.
Commenting on the discovery Professor Dim-Eatery Kossakoff, curator of meteorites at Moscow's Natural Hystery Museum, said the image resembled an alien goddess-like creature toying with a chillum.
The carving will now join the museum's 25,943 other similar artefucts collected across Russia from 100 years of ET's deliveries to Planet Earth via Asteroid FedEx.
Next year the entire archive will travel to Washington DC in the United States where it will form the core of a special exhibit at the Smithsonian.
A cultural swap will in turn see ex-President George W Bush's extraordinary 1,000 watercolor pictures of cute little pooches, all painted by Dubya since he left orifice, travel to Moscow for the Russian Cultural Bi-Centenary.
Predsident Yuri Gagarin is 89.
