It's a bird! It's a plane! It's a...smoke ring?

Last Saturday evening, July 8th, many locals saw a curious black ring in the sky. Cars stopped along the road, people video recording and snapping pictures because, ALIENS!


Posts all over social media and several reports to the police station gave the police a good laugh as they reassured us “We aren’t expecting any alien abductions tonight in Cape Girardeau,”.

Seeing as the explanation for this eerie floating circle was nothing more than a smoke ring from fireworks shot off at the Elks lodge, you can’t help but be amused at the creativity and readiness to accept extraterrestrial life.
