On Monday, authorities in Arizona eased concerns about an apparent roadside space capsule crash.

The craft, perhaps one of NASA's, perhaps one belonging to aliens from outer space, was spotted over the weekend just lying in the dirt off of Interstate 10 near Casa Grande.

In conducting an investigation into the capsule the Arizona Department of Public Safety learned it was not in fact part of a spaceship but rather a piece of public art.

Soon after the department announced via Facebook: "It appears an artist got creative near Casa Grande and turned a cement truck drum to a space capsule caused a stir on I10 this morning."
