Roswell UFO Landings
In July of 1947, a flying object crashed near Roswell in New Mexico. The Army released a statement saying they had possession of a "flying disc" but 24hrs later, they changed their story to say that it wasn't a flying disc but an experimental high-altitude surveillance weather balloon used by the secret U.S. military Air Force.
But was it? Reports in the 70s and 80s suggested the military were involved in Martian autopsies and recovering alien spacecraft. UFO supporters insist that the Roswell disc was an extraterrestrial craft of which the passengers were captured before the Army covered it up.
Intriguingly, Lieutenant Walter Haut who was the officer involved with both press releases in 1947, left a sworn affidavit to be opened after his death. He asserted that the weather balloon was a cover story and he describes seeing a craft in a hangar and bodies about 4ft tall with large heads.
Perhaps Haut was having one final laugh but with billions of star systems and galaxies, is it naive to think we are the only ones in the universe? The truth is no doubt out there.
