This could be an alien, or it might be something else.

Scientists all over the world are trying to explain the sudden appearance of the Voyager spacecraft, orbiting the moon. NASA and other space agencies are scrambling to find a logical explanation, while UFOlogists have stepped forward to explain ti all away.

The Voyager craft is one of two ships launched in the 1970's and launched towards the edge of the solar system, and was never expected to return to Earth again. Scientists are unable to explain the craft being placed into orbit our our moon without admitting that intelligent life exists in our own solar system.

One confidential contact who works at a notorious place where secret things are done told a friend, "Look, if we can't find any intelligent life on this planet, we sure don't want to find out that it exists somewhere else. It would give everyone a complex or a massage, or something."

"It's like this," Elwood Underwood, a local raving lunatic, told our roving reporter. "They don't want our space junk out in the rest of the galaxy. We are welcome to trash our own solar system, but we gotta keep that garbage in our own yard."

As if to back up Elwood's explanation, a secretly launched probe discovered last week that the exploratory interstellar craft has been tagged with an apparent galactic zoning violation. While NASA admits it owns the vehicle, the space agency denies any responsibility for fines and penalties assessed for littering. The Environmental Protection Agency released a report stating, "We were not aware of the possibilities of congesting space travel with laws involving active space probes, but we can assure the public that the craft will cited locally as well."

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
