The Mysterious Roswell UFO Case After 70 Years

There has been multiple unidentified flying objects or UFO sightings all over the United States for so many years now, then again there are some who seem so fake especially with the modern technology we have today, anything could be literally made up. However, an incident happened about 70 years ago where an unidentified object crashed in a ranch that is near Roswell, New Mexico. Continue reading to find out more.


It was in July 1947, when mysterious debris was founded by rancher W W Brazel. He then eventually told Sheriff George Wilcox about it. The object apparently had rubber and foil on it, then the Sheriff immediately told the nearby Army base field. An intelligence officer named Major Jesse Marcel was then sent to investigate, Marcel was actually convinced that it might actually be an extra terrestrial object that is a part of a flying saucer. Marcel then informed this matter to the duty press officer Walter Haut at the Area 51 in Nevada, which is also now considered to be a mysterious place because no one is allowed within the premises. People actually believe that this is a place there the U.S. government are hiding all the files and experiments that has anything to do with extra terrestrial matters.

The local newspaper, Roswell Daily Record, immediately put this news on to the front page of their paper for everyone to see. They even used the words “flying saucer” that immediately caught the attention of the entire nation. The Roswell Army Air Field then released a statement stating that personnel from the field of the 509th Operations Group has indeed found a “flying disc” that crashed nearby the ranch.
“We spent a couple of hours Monday (July 7) looking for any more parts of the device and we found a few more patches of tinfoil and rubber,” Wilcox explained.

Of course, this UFO news was all destroyed and straightened out by the U.S. government. The Military stated that it just actually just a conventional weather balloon and not an unidentified flying object.


Years after this Roswell incident happened, the U.S. military published not just one but two reports stating the true nature of the wreckage. It was reported to be a nuclear test surveillance balloon from the Project Mogul. It is basically a top secret project by the United States Air Forces that involves microphones flown on high-altitude balloons, which is for a long-distance detection of sound waves that was actually generated by Soviet atomic bomb tests.


The Roswell UFO case is actually known to be the world’s most famous, most exhaustively investigated, as well as the most thoroughly debunked UFO claim in the history of the world.

There was even an animated program that was originally aired in 199 entitled Roswell Conspiracies: Aliens, Myths and Legends. The main plot of the series was that aliens have been actually living with humans.

A local radio announcer named Heather Wade apparently got a document from the US Defense Intelligence Agency and she revealed on her show that it was indeed a UFO that crashed within the Roswell ranch back in 1947.

Up to this date, a lot of people still believe that the debris that was found within the ranch are extra terrestrial objects that the government are just trying to cover up, especially with all the proofs that has been gathered by a lot of people within the area. This was not the very first time that people witness something unusual that could be related to extra terrestrial life, then again, the government always seem to have something to say when it comes to these matters, hence the people are always skeptical about it.
According to Nigel Watson, the author of Haynes UFO Investigations Manual, “Roswell has got everything really. It got government conspiracy, it is in a remote location, it has got Stories of aliens and spaceships, and there’s the idea that this wreckage was perhaps taken to Area 51.”

Last September, NASA finished one of its spacecraft’s mission known as Cassini, after 20 years of exploring Saturn, then again, not even NASA could deny nor confirm if there really is such thing as aliens. After 70 years of this Roswell UFO mystery, there is still no proof or no confirmation if we really are the only ones living in the entire universe or if it really was just a failed test from the Air Force that crashed in the ranch in 1947.
