Just Another Weather Balloon

Houston, TX-- Alarmed amateur astronomers have reported seeing a 100-mile wide metallic sphere circling the moon for the last three days. NASA wants people to know that it is only a weather balloon, and there is nothing to worry about. Weather balloons are common is Outer Space, and the public should go back to minding their own business.

"Yes, of course it's a weather balloon." stated NASA chief Dr. Karl Saygun. "What else could it be--little green men from Mars??" he snickered.

"NASA has sent dozens of weather balloons into Outer Space since the 1950's." continued Dr. Saygun. "The balloons expand once they leave the Earth because there is a vacuum in Outer Space, that's why it appears so big. Don't listen to amateurs. There is nothing to worry about." he insisted.

When someone informed Dr. Saygun that the 'weather balloon' was also transmitting radio signals, he had a quick answer.

"Weather balloons often emit radio signals, don't let it bother you. Many types of balloons send signals, even a child knows that!" he grinned. "Just go back to watching your TV and leave things to the professionals here at NASA. We know what we are doing."
