On the night of July 4, 1947 on a ranch outside Roswell, New Mexico a UFO crashed. That has never really been disputed. The Air Force even released a press release later that week that, of course, that later had to be “walked back.”
Binge watching Ancient Aliens on History Channel, I asked my brother in law – who lives in Albuquerque – about Roswell. My bro in law Michael sells high tech pipe to the labs at Sandia, Intel and even salsa manufacturers. Roswell is on his beat.
He asked someone in Roswell about the crash. One of the old timers told Michael: the local coroner was instructed by the Air Force to provide 3 children’s coffins. The local coroner was total salt of the earth rural America. He would never have been involved in any sensationalized tomfoolery about UFO’s.
That’s good enough for me. So I harvested all my sci fi, alien, UFO-ria for some late night skywatching in case they come back for more.
Look to the skies! Do not scoff!
