It’s hard to believe it’s been 66 years since the most famous UFO events in US History.
For those of you that don’t know (if you exist), on July 7th in 1947, a mysterious object crashed down on a ranch near the towns of Corona and Roswell, New Mexico. Official sources announced that this object was a weather balloon, but several witnesses claim to have examined bizarre metals that could not be attributed to a weather balloon, as well as having seen bodies that were either alien or badly mutilated humans.
But what’s the truth of it? Only 7 out of 300 witness interviews seemed to believe the debris was otherworldly. And though alien autopsy videos were released in 1995, they have been pretty much debunked.
Still, the incident has inspired several books, TV specials, and movies. It’s also boosted the town’s tourism industry, with several businesses taking up a UFO or Alien theme, there was also plans to build a theme park around the subject. The city’s seal even features a green man looking down on a ranch.
