A Crashed Flying Saucer? An Alien Base at Area 51? The story of the Roswell Incident has it all-
UFOs, the Majestic-12 government conspiracy, alien bodies, cover-ups, a missing nurse... the stuff of legends. But like all popular legends, there are as many versions as there are Storytellers.
The Truth about Roswell may be "out there", but it has been shrouded by faulty
and conflicting memories, hoaxes- and sometimes, deliberate lies.
The Roswell Incident
Be sure to check out Tim Printy's Newsletter
devoted to UFO research.
First alerted by Lt. Haut's now famous
press release, The Nation's Newspapers gave the
public a brief
thrill back in 1947. Take a look at how the Incident was reported, and the first-hand
accounts of some of the principle witnesses.
|In 1978, UFO researchers re-discovered the details of The
when Jesse Marcel first told his story to Stanton Friedman.
Since then, the Roswell Incident has become the most researched UFO event in history.
Soon after Jesse
Marcel told his story to Stan Friedman and Bill Moore,
(one researcher claims over 600!) began to step forward. But the stories they told are full
of contradictions, and sometimes deceptions.
The Government know... and when did they know it? Conspiracy
advocates have long maintained that the government is hiding artifacts, technology and
recovered from the crashed spaceships. Information retrieved through
The FOIA, and reports
from the FBI, CIA and the GAO would seem to indicate otherwise
There are those who think that what Mac Brazel stumbled upon, and
Major Jesse Marcel recovered, was indeed a
crashed saucer- complete with its alien crew. They are adamant that the
Air Force/ Government is
hiding The Truth deep in the bowels of Top Secret.
More books, articles and research have been done about The Roswell Incident than any other event in the
history of UFO's. But the same dedicated research that has made Roswell so famous has also turned up
countless inconsistencies, gross elaboration, and strong indications that some of the evidence was hoaxed.
Yet, despite the confusion, there are many who believe that what Mac Brazel found was proof positive that
we are being visited by beings from another world. Spurred by numerous books, the popular press and
television, the hard-core faithful and curiosity seekers alike have made the once sleepy town of
Roswell, New Mexico
the Mecca of UFO-ology.
This site is designed to give you an analytical look at the events, the people, and those that have
brought us the Roswell Story. There is much here that is very skeptical in focus, but to be considered part
of a valid explanation, any and all evidence presented must be able to withstand critical analysis. As you
will see, there is much that cannot.
What really did happen back in 1947?
The best evidence available is always the data collected soonest after
All indications from this Best Evidence-
Mac Brazel's interview with the Roswell Daily
Record; J.B. Johnson's photographs;
Press reports from early July, 1947... all point to a simple case of
Papers obtained through the Freedom of Information Act that date from this time period
are consistent with the explanation that a
Mogul Balloon with a radar reflector was what Mac Brazel found.
Yet... It is the stories that surfaced some 30 to 40 years later, conflicting though they are, that have riveted
the attention of the public. These tales have been buttressed by accusations of a
massive Government Conspiracy
to account for contradictions with the initial reports.
So- what is the truth? Well, wander through these pages and judge for yourself.
