It was slower than you which means it probably hitchhiked via Puddlejumper and got lost in space. *snickers* The stamp (the sun during a sun flare) could make it a true story. ^^

You can't drive anywhere close to it, and until recently, the airspace overhead was restricted--all the way to outer space. *lol* So, our little grey friends from Stargate had no chance to knock and come by for tea. Shame on us. =D
