UFO base or something else?

If you are ever in the extreme far westward reaches of the great state of Arizona, you might just think that you're on a far off distant alien world. As you look towards the horizon from Yucca, Arizona, a bright round shinny object comes into view, which looks at first like some sort of a giant golf ball. More objects start appearing as you get closer to the area where the object is located.

I decided to take a real close up view to this interesting object, so I drove up to the very spot in question. At first a UFO landing site crossed my mind, but I quickly discarded that thought from my mind. After all this was western Arizona, and Roswell, New Mexico was a long ways off.

At a closer inspection, the giant shaped sphere was at least three stories tall. All around it there were space ships, and alien life forms. There was a small single wide trailer in the midst of all of this, that first appeared to be some sort of convenience store. So I bravely went on inside of it to ask ask exactly what was going on here.

Once inside the store I was surrounded by all sorts of alien stuff. There were mason jars filled with some sort of colored liquid along with little alien bodies inside. There were a variety of other things throughout the little store that I can't even begin to describe. I'm not joking about any of this either.

Behind the counter there was a very normal quiet young man sitting underneath of a rack of cigarettes priced at $6.69 a pack. The price of cigarettes shocked me just as much as everything else did in the store. I didn't even attempt to make any small talk with the man, and I just bluntly asked - "How much is it to go up into that big ball that's outside?".

I was rather shocked at his answer. More people followed into the little store behind me, and awaited for the price to be quoted for admission, so that they could enter the big golf ball looking sphere as well. But a price was not to be, and the young man behind the counter in a calm voice said, "It's not opened yet".

Now my mind really started to produce a lot of questions at this point in time. Now if it's not an alien landing field or base, then what is it? Or is it an alien landing field or base? If it's not opened or some sort of tourist attraction, then what could it be? It's not much of a convenience store, there's no gas pumps, and other than chips and cigarettes there's not a whole lot for sale. So what in the heck is going on here? The questions were still building up in my head, when suddenly the young man appeared as if he was ready to finish answering the question.

He very calmly, and nonchalantly said, "The big ball was simply his mother's house". We all then looked strangely at one another, shrugged, said "Okay", and then we all left. I personally took all of the photographs in this hub, while I was there. Please take a look at them, and you all tell me - What in the world do you think is going on here? Trust me, and remember that there is no right or wrong answer to this question! Stopping by interesting places like this is certainly among fun things to do when your bored.

That is pretty cool. One time I was driving on the back roads, not to far from where I live, when I saw a UFO. I mean, it looked JUST like a flying saucer. It was huge!

I ventured closer, terrified. In the end, I met a very nice couple who did not mind me taking pictures. This spaceship was their home. They had spent a great deal of time and money building it!

They new it would attract attention, and weirdos stopping to investigate, but it doesn't bother them! This reminds me of that so much!

He said that "The big ball was simply his mother's house" . Well she would have had to walk up a lot of stairs to reach her home unless it was a memorial for his mother. That is an interesting looking house.

This is excellent! If I could have a house like this, I would do it in a heartbeat.

He was serious flashmakeit, about it being his mother's house. If you look at the pictures you'll see that the steps appear like they are a gradual ramp going around the ball & up. I'm more under the impression now that his mother may not be from around here. (Which is the best way that I could say it)

Interesting. I have always wondered about aliens. Like these objects pictured here, are they real or a hoax? Great photos BTW.

TheHoleStory....personally I believe " aliens/UFO's" exist...but..not as we are lead to believe..they are already here and walking among us...what this place in Arizona has done is presented it as what they believe...we each perceive differently....interesting article, written ....one day the " truth" will be revealed....

Your story amuses me. I am that "young man" the writer spoke to in the store that day (I appreciate still being called young). I thank everybody that stops because it is an interesting place, and I want ppl to know the story. It is the only complete geodesic sphere in the world that is elevated off the ground except for the Epcot Center sphere (which is not completely elevated off the ground). It was my mother's house and she moved out because she is getting older and walking up and down those stairs wasn't agreeing with her anymore. So, we have renovated it to open it to the public. It has cost a great deal of money but it's amost ready. It will be an alien-themed attraction and I hope that people will enjoy it once it is open to the public. One thing needs to be corrected though. The cigarettes have never been priced at $7.80/pack. They are currently $6.69 for Marlboro and Camel, which is very close to everywhere else in that area (Arizona tobacco taxes are the 3rd highest in the nation)

John, I am truly convinced that you were the young man sitting behind counter on that fateful day, because no one else could have possibly ever said what you said here without having been at this magical place in Western Arizona. I made the correction for you in the cigarette prices which I'm sorry that I made a big mistake on. In one of the photos above the little silver SUV which is parked in front of your Mother's house had it's first real rest since we left the Mohave desert in California. We traveled 5,058 miles cross country in this SUV, and we literally had to stop and get a closer look at your Mother's house, which can be seen a long ways off on Interstate 40 in both directions. I'm sure you will do great when you finally get it finished & opened. You are more than welcome to use this hub if it'll help you. It was truly a pleasure to hear from you again.

John is trying to cover up for his mom! I'm joking. (or am I? *dramatic music playing*) The whole thing reminds me of the movie Paul where Simon Pegg and Nick Frost are big fans of UFOs and they stop by in a similar place where everything is alien themed. They believe in aliens but they would never have imagined that on that trip they would meet one - Paul. Who likes to curse a lot (we can thank Seth Rogen for that).
