SPACE PENGUINS IN TUSCUMBIA - On the cold morning of February 14, 1967 - near Tuscumbia, Missouri - a rural farmer named Claude Edwards (aged 64) was starting his daily farming duties when he noticed something "strange" sitting in one of his fields. Edwards saw, to his shock and amazement, a large "grayish-green mushroom-like craft" that was perched atop a "tube-like shaft." As the farmer approached the weird vehicle he soon noticed "strange beings" - that can only be described as "green space penguins" - which were frenetically zipping around the base of the craft in a blur. As Edwards edged closer to the bizarre display, he found himself walking headlong into an "invisible wall" that was apparently protecting the “ship” (which he then estimated as measuring 18' long and 8' high with lighted "portholes" around it's base). Edwards then picked up some large rocks and hurled them at the saucer - only to observe that they bounced off the "force field" with no effect. The strange 3-foot-tall creatures then disappeared behind the "tube" and the vehicle began to rise, soon gaining altitude and zipping off towards the east. This unusual "Close Encounter of the Third Kind" was investigated by noted Missouri UFO researcher Ted Phillips who collected landing trace evidence that supported the bizarre account and who found Edwards to be a credible witness. The "Space Penguins" case remains unsolved and is one of the more interesting encounters of high strangeness in the annals of unexplained UFO lore.

Da da da, da da 🎶🎶 So, I didn't see Richard Dreyfuss or any extra terrestrials, and there is no hillside to duck away from those little black helicopters, but Devil's Tower is still a crazy thing to behold.
The surprise were all the barking prairie dogs 🐾🐾!
Sunday’s wind rolled in some low-flying, ominous gray clouds that reminded me of scenes from Close Encounters of the Third Kind. I’m still waiting for the giant spaceship to arrive. I’ll post pics if I see it.
