The Mars flying saucer

The Mars flying saucer made a safe return to the borough Thursday after a nearly two-month absence.

The flying saucer, positioned at the corner of Grand Avenue and Pittsburgh Street, hovered away from its home in late March on its way to a cleaning and fresh coat of paint. Officials said it was last painted in 2017, and was in desperate need of a makeover.

PPG Paints provided the new paint, which should last longer and allow the spaceship to be the center of attention during Mars New Year Exploration and Celebration Days from May 31 to June 2.
