With well over 50000 photos, books, articles on UFOs it would make you wonder what are they and do they exist? The answer is yes we all have seen an object in the sky we could not identify whether it was some sort of craft, meteor, object there are many things that we just do not have an answer for.  UFOs go back to the biblical days back then they were called wheels of light, Columbus mentions them, and many other cultures. They are even in some of the paintings from 100s of years ago especially the ones with the Virgin Mary. The objects have been filmed all over the world on CNN even. They appear in all shapes triangular, saucer, square, oval and even cigar shaped. My theory is that not all of them are extraterrestrial in orgin some are military craft in the skies and some may be from other worlds. Most appear to be shiny metallic and tend to appear as fast as the disappear at incredible angles. NASA has seen them and so have pilots of major airlines. I once had a friend who flew on a 747 said an object was near the wing the passengers seen it but not many talk about incidences for fear of losing there jobs or some just think they are crazy. But how many times do you walk outside seen a contrail or Chemtrail yet no craft these are said to be caused by UFOs as well manmade or not I would not know. We all dream at one time what it would be like to be in a flying saucer high above the earth and to fly into a mother ship far off in another galaxy. The closest of riding on a UFO I got was riding the Gravitron when I was a child haha. Although you look at the stealth and some of the new USAF craft that our out and easily we can mistaken these as UFOs. But then you ask where did they get that technology. Did you know Boeing is working on its first UFO. Years ago on a science show someone built a man made remote control one so as you can see a flying saucer is not impossible. Now a flying saucer that can disappear, dive into the ocean, travel the speed of light, things of that sort are probably not possible for man but very probably for advanced races from other worlds. The amount of sightings is incredible you can go anywhere and search databases I looked one day at a town near I live they had 100s of reports over the last 3 yrs. So sightings are not as rare as you may think just look to the skies. So in theory very simple I think UFOS are A. Aliens B. Government top secret craft (project blue big and silver bug just to name a few) C. Space Debris D. Multidimensional craft. What makes them run this I do not know possible nuclear physics, jet propulsion, maybe even natural resources such as water which can create electricity. Many UFOs are seen hovering over lakes, oceans, forest some have beams shooting out, some no lights, some multicolors. Is very important to differ what are the real UFOs are and not. Most UFOs are silent, they hover, and appear very late at night over dense forest and secluded areas but not always some do appear in daylight even over some cities like the great blackout in DC then many objects flew over the Whitehouse. Many presidents believe in UFOs and prominent people the questions is do you. The truth is out there!

E.T. or not E.T.

What do you say when someone asks "Do you believe in UFOs?" Do you say yes? No? Maybe? Do you patiently explain that they are asking the wrong question because "UFO" simply means "Unidentified Flying Object", and that there is no question that some flying objects are unidentified, even if only temporarily? Meanwhile, they roll their eyes or look at you impatiently because they think you should know that they meant extraterrestrial craft. But extraterrestrial craft is only one of the explanations for UFOs, and many people, even within the field of UFOlogy, question the extraterrestrial explanation.

The extraterrestrial hypothesis is certainly the most popular UFO explanation, dating back at least to Charles Fort. It basically says that the unexplained objects that we see in the sky are alien visitors from another world.

What are some of the other hypotheses for explaining UFOs?


  • The Inter-Dimensional Hypothesis

    This one says that UFOs are from a world that co-exists with our own, but is in another, parallel dimension. This explains why they can seemingly appear out of nowhere and vanish into nothing. The idea of UFOs as time machines and aliens as time-travelers also falls within the scope of this hypothesis.


  • The Paranormal/Occult Hypothesis

    This is very similar to, and is sometimes combined with, the Inter-Dimensional Hypothesis. It says that UFOs are manifestations of paranormal or occult phenomenon. This would include the ideas of those who say that UFOs are either angelic or demonic. Dr. Kenneth Ring has studied the relationship between those who experience NDEs and those who experience alien abductions and found many similarities. His idea is that some people naturally have an enhanced ability to sense paranormal phenomena. Jacques Vallee, John Keel, and others have attempted to combine religious experiences, tales of fairies, and UFOs/aliens under one umbrella as one type of entity that manifests itself in different ways.


  • The Psycho-Social Hypothesis

    This is a skeptical theory that says the UFO phenomenon is subjective. The UFO phenomenon is a cultural phenomenon that satisfies some innate human need in a fashion similar to that of religion. When real objects are seen, they are ordinary flying objects that are misidentified and then are reinterpreted within the framework of UFO mythology. To the proponents of this hypothesis, UFOs and alien abductions have assumed the role that folklore once played in society. This hypothesis originated with psychotherapist Carl Jung is his book Flying Saucers: A Modern Myth of Things Seen in the Sky. Recently, Robert E. Bartholomew and George S. Howard have espoused a verion of this hypothesis in UFOs & Alien Contact.


  • Earthlights/Tectonic Stress Hypothesis

    This theory attempts to explain UFO phenomenon as a result of electromagnetic energy released by tectonic stress, the same stress that causes earthquakes. Some researchers feel that the energy released causes anamalous luminous phenomena directly, while others believe that this energy affects the human brain, causing hallucinatory experiences. The shaky ground theory.


  • Man-made Craft

    This theory says that all unexplained UFO sightings that are not mere misidentifications of ordinary objects are sightings of secret aircraft belonging to some group or some government on Earth.


  • The Living UFO Hypothesis

    A final hypothesis, which has not gotten much attention, is the theory that UFOs are themselves some sort of unknown life-form that lives in the Earth's atmosphere. This is said to be what Kenneth Arnold believed towards the end of his life.


Iridium Satellites

 Iridium Satellites became a new source of UFO Reports:

“I was looking at the sky when I noticed this light hanging in the sky that got brighter and brighter. I knew it wasn't an airplane because there were no red lights. Just a single, round bright light that got incredibly brighter, like a star exploding. It couldn't have been anything from this planet.”

Well, yes, it could have been.

A constellation of commercial communication satellites has become the latest nuisance to UFO-spotters, not to mention astronomers all over the world.

Iridium LLC, an international consortium based in Washington, D.C., has been launching satellites into 780 km (485 mi.) high pole-to-pole orbits. The satellites will provide a global telephone network.

Originally, 77 satellites were planned, and the project was named “Iridium”; (Iridium is a metallic chemical element having 77 electrons surrounding its nucleus.) Later, the plan was revised to make do with 66 satellites, but the name remained. (Thank goodness they didn't rename it “Dysprosium”. -ed.)

Unfortunately, the three main antennas on the satellite (two of them are seen as the lower vanes in the photo) form a sort of pyramid facing the ground, and they are highly reflective. These antennas are about the size of an average household door, and are nearly perfect mirrors. As the satellite slowly rotates, they can reflect a beam of sunlight to the ground. Because of the satellite's altitude, it is still in sunlight long after the earth below has fallen into darkness. In fact, during most of its orbit, each satellite will be reflecting sunlight somewhere on the earth.

Viewed from the ground, an Iridium satellite produces a bright flare of light lasting up to 20 seconds. At peak intensity (about 5 seconds), the flash can be as much as 23 times brighter than Venus - enough to cast faint shadows on the ground. Then it fades out and apparently disappears completely.

And there you are - another UFO is reported. If you're not directly in the main path of the beam, the flash can still be up to -4 magnitude, brighter than the brightest star in the sky.

Radio astronomers have already fallen foul of terrestrial cellular phone signals, which are beginning to clog up the radio spectrum. “Those cell phones are horrible,” says Dan Green of the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics in Cambridge, Massachusetts. The Iridium satellites will add to radio astronomers' headaches. But the flashes also annoy astronomers working at visible wavelengths. “For professional astronomers, they're not a problem,” says Green. “But an amateur might be convinced he's seen a new nova. They get angry when you try to tell them otherwise. It wastes a fair amount of our time and effort.”

Some Famous UFO Photos

I am adding  a few of my favorite UFO photos however I have 100s including some black and whites taken years ago.

Just a couple of the many paintings 100s of years ago with saucers in the background.

Ed Walter's photos are still very genuine as of today of the Gulf Breeze Florida UFO

Taken in belgium these triangles are become very famous. They are seen now worldly and in groups of 3. Rumor has it the black triangles are US government owned.

Viva Las Vegas here we go Area 51 is about an hour away can we say the desert has its secrets?

This was suppose to be taken at NAFB in Las Vegas

Clip taken off live film in Mexico City

Not all come in saucer shape sizes this one is way over some trees in a farm field.

Taken by morton this live video was amazing of a glowing red saucer.

Airport sightings are not uncommon they are as curious as us.

UFOs Like these above are often seen in Mexico


UFO Crashes? They do exist to  there are ones you hear about and ones you do not. What most go up must go down. Even UFOs are not full proof lightning or the elements can cause a crash or any type of malfunction. For one of the larges listings on the net of crashes done by CSETI

Roswell The Most  Famous Crash

Roswell, a southeastern New Mexico town with a population of about 49,000. Has has become the mecca of paranormal folklore. Its proximity to the purported site of a fifty-year old UFO crash-landing in July 1947. I will admit I have seen some strange happenings in southeastern New Mexico, some of which I have told other still to follower, but sad to say my most fondest memory of Roswell involves a car accident about 20 miles west of town, where a body was hanging out of a shattered window in the desert winds. Roswell interest was stirred when public relations officer Walter Haut of the Roswell Army Air Field announced the discovery of a damaged "flying disk" on a nearby ranch. Although military authorities did an about-face shortly after, explaining that the wreckage was actually from an experimental weather balloon, locals spread stories about alien corpses and a top-secret military installation ominously referred to as "Area 51." This seem to be the birthing ground for the UFO tales that would follower. Everyone seems to have a onion even Penthouse who in September 1996 purchased (for an estimated $200,000) and published three photographs of what it alleged to be an alien autopsy at Roswell. I am going to let the rest be told by the Roswell Daily Record: July 8, 1947 and July 9, 1947 "The intelligence office of the 509th Bombardment group at Roswell Army Air Field announced at noon today, that the field has come into possession of a flying saucer.

Sequence of Events

On July 2, 1947, during the evening, a flying saucer crashed on the Foster Ranch near Corona, New Mexico. The crash occurred during a severe thunderstorm. (The military base nearest the crash site is in Roswell, New Mexico; hence, Roswell is more closely associated with this event than Corona, even though Corona is closer to the crash site.)

On July 3, 1947, William "Mac" Brazil (rhymes with "frazzle") and his 7-year-old neighbor Dee Proctor found the remains of the crashed flying saucer. Brazil was foreman of the Foster Ranch. The pieces were spread out over a large area, perhaps more than half a mile long. When Brazil drove Dee back home, he showed a piece of the wreckage to Dee's parents, Floyd and Loretta Proctor. They all agreed the piece was unlike anything they had ever seen.

On July 6, 1947, Brazil showed pieces of the wreckage to Chaves County Sheriff George Wilcox. Wilcox called Rowel Army AirField (AAF) and talked to Major Jesse Marcel, the intelligence officer. Marcel drove to the sheriff's office and inspected the wreckage. Marcel reported to his commanding officer, Colonel William "Butch" Blanchard. Blanchard ordered Marcel to get someone from the Counter Intelligence Corps, and to proceed to the ranch with Brazil, and to collect as much of the wreckage as they could load into their two vehicles.

Soon after this, military police arrived at the sheriff's office, collected the wreckage Brazil had left there, and delivered the wreckage to Blanchard's office. The wreckage was then flown to Eighth Air Force headquarters in Fort Worth, and from there to Washington.

Meanwhile, Marcel and Sheridan Cavitt of the Counter Intelligence Corps drove to the ranch with Mac Brazil. They arrived late in the evening. They spent the night in sleeping bags in a small out-building on the ranch, and in the morning proceeded to the crash site.

On July 7, 1947, Marcel and Cavitt collected wreckage from the crash site. After filling Cavitt's vehicle with wreckage, Marcel told Cavitt to go on ahead, that Marcel would collect more wreckage, and they would meet later back at Roswell AAF. Marcel filled his vehicle with wreckage. On the way back to the airfield, Marcel stopped at home to show his wife and son the strange material he had found.

On July 7, 1947, around 4:00 PM, Lydia Sleppy at Roswell radio station KSWS began transmitting a story on the teletype machine regarding a crashed flying saucer out on the Foster Ranch. Transmission was interrupted, seemingly by the FBI.

On July 8, 1947, in the morning, Marcel and Cavitt arrived back at Roswell AAF with two carloads of wreckage. Marcel accompanied this wreckage, or most it, on a flight to Fort Worth AAF.

On July 8, 1947, around noon, Colonel Blanchard at Roswell AAF ordered Second Lieutenant Walter Haut to issue a press release telling the country that the Army had found the remains of a crashed a flying saucer. Haut was the public information officer for the 509th Bomb Group at Roswell AAF. Haut delivered the press release to Frank Joyce at radio station KGFL. Joyce waited long enough for Haut to return to the base, then called Haut there to confirm the story. Joyce then sent the story on the Western Union wire to the United Press bureau.

On July 8, 1947, in the afternoon, General Clemence McMullen in Washington spoke by telephone with Colonel (later Brigadier General) Thomas DuBose in Fort Worth, chief of staff to Eighth Air Force Commander General Roger Ramey. McMullen ordered DuBose to tell Ramey to quash the flying saucer story by creating a cover story, and to send some of the crash material immediately to Washington.

On July 8, 1947, in the afternoon, General Roger Ramey held a press conference at Eighth Air Force headquarters in Fort Worth in which he announced that what had crashed at Corona was a weather balloon, not a flying saucer. To make this story convincing he showed the press the remains of a damaged weather balloon that he claimed was the actual wreckage from the crash site. (Apparently, the obliging press did not ask why the Army hurriedly transported weather balloon wreckage to Fort Worth, Texas, site of the press conference, from the crash site in a remote area of New Mexico.)

The only newspapers that carried the initial flying saucer version of the story were evening papers from the Midwest to the West, including the Chicago Daily News, the Los Angeles Herald Express, the San Francisco Examiner, and the Roswell Daily Record. The New York Times, the Washington Post, and the Chicago Tribune were morning papers and so carried only the cover-up story the next morning.

At some point, a large group of soldiers were sent to the debris field on the Foster Ranch, including a lot of MPs whose job was to limit access to the field. A wide search was launched well beyond the limits of the debris field. Within a day or two, a few miles from the debris field, the main body of the flying saucer was found, and a mile or two from that several bodies of small humanoids were found.

The military took Mac Brazil into custody for about a week, during which time he was seen on the streets of Roswell with a military escort. His behavior aroused the curiosity of friends when he passed them without any sign of recognition. Following this period of detention, Brazil repudiated his initial story.

The Eye-witness Accounts

Bessie Brazil Schreiber

[Bessie Brazil Schreiber is Mac Brazil's daughter. Here is her description of wreckage from the crash.]

[The material resembled] a sort of aluminum-like foil. Some of [these] pieces had a sort of tape stuck to them. Even though the stuff looked like tape, it could not be peeled off or removed at all. Some of these pieces had something like numbers and lettering on them, but there were no words we were able to make out. The figures were written out like you would write numbers in columns, but they didn't look like the numbers we use at all.

[There was also] a piece of something made out of the same metal-like foil that looked like a pipe sleeve. About four inches across and equally long, with a flange on one end. [Also] what appeared to be pieces of heavily waxed paper.

Glenn Dennis

[Glenn Dennis was a mortician in Roswell in 1947. His employer provided mortuary services for Roswell Army AirField. Dennis drove a combination hearse and ambulance for both civilian and military assignments. On July 9 or 10, 1947, Dennis got several phone calls from the Roswell AAF mortuary officer, who was more of an administrator than a mortuary technician. The officer wanted to know about hermetically sealed caskets ("What was the smallest one they could get?"), and about chemical solutions. Stanton Friedman interviewed Dennis in August 1989.]

This is what was so interesting. See this is why I feel like there was really something involved in this, because they didn't want to do anything that was going to make an imbalance. They kept saying, "OK, what's this going to do to the blood system, what's this going to do to the tissue?" Then when they informed me that these bodies [had] laid out in the middle of July, in the middle of the prairie, I mean that body's going to be as dark as your [blue] blazer there, and it's going to be in bad shape. I was the one who suggested dry ice. I'd done that a time or two.

I talked to them four or five times in the afternoon. They would keep calling back and asking me different questions involving the body. What they were really after was how to move those bodies. They didn't give me any indication they even had the bodies, or where they were. But they kept talking about these bodies, and I said, "What do the bodies look like?" And they said, "I don't know, but I'll tell you one thing: This happened some time ago." The only thing that was mentioned was that they were exposed to the elements for several days.

I understand these bodies weren't in the same location as where they found some of the others. They said the bodies weren't in the vehicle itself; the bodies were separated by two or three miles from it. They talked about three different bodies: two of them mangled, one that was in pretty good shape.

[That evening, Dennis took a GI accident victim to the base infirmary, which was in the same building as the hospital and the mortuary. He walked the injured GI inside, then drove around to the back to see a pretty young Army Air Forces nurse he had recently gotten to know.]

There were two MPs standing right there, and I got out and started to go in. I wouldn't have gotten as far as I did if I hadn't parked in the emergency area. They probably thought I was coming after somebody. The doors were open to the military ambulances and that's where some wreckage was, and there was an MP on each side. I saw all the wreckage.

I don't know what it was, but I knew there was something going on, and that's when I first got an inclination that something was happening. What was so curious about it, was that in two of those ambulances was a deal that looked like [the bottom] half of a canoe. It didn't look like aluminum. You know what stainless steel looks like when you put heat on it? How it'll turn kind of purplish, with kind of a blue hue to it? [Dennis later said that he saw a row of unrecognizable symbols several inches high on the metal devices.] I just glanced in and kept going.

When I got inside, I noticed there was quite a bit of activity. When I went back into the lounge, there were "big birds" [high-ranking officers he didn't recognize, though he was familiar with all the local medical people] everywhere. They were really shook up. So I went down the hall where I usually go, and I got down the hall just a little way and an MP met me right there. He wanted to know who the hell I was and where I was from, and what business did I have there? I explained who I was. Evidently he was under the impression that they called me to come out.

Anyway, I got past that and I went on in and then this is where I met the nurse. She was involved in this thing she was on duty. She told me, "How in the hell did you get in here?" I said, "I just walked in." She said, "My God, you are going to get killed." And I said, "They didn't stop me." I was going to the Coke machine to get us a Coke, and this big redheaded colonel said, "What's that son of a bitch doing here?"

He hollered at the MPs and that's when it hit the fan. These two MPs grabbed me by the arms and carried me clear outside. They carried me to the ambulance. I didn't walk they carried me. And they told me to get my ass out of there. [They followed him back to the funeral home.]

About two or three hours later, they [called] and told me, "You open your mouth and you'll be so far back in the jug they'll have to shoot pinto beans [into you] with a bean shooter." I just laughed and said, "Go to hell."

[Dennis spoke with the nurse again the following day.]

She said there were three little bodies. Two of them were just mangled beyond everything, but there was one of them that was really in pretty good condition.

And she said, "Let me show you the difference between our anatomy and theirs. Really, what they looked like was ancient Chinese: small, fragile, no hair." She said their noses didn't protrude, the eyes were set pretty deep, and the ears were just little indentations. She said the anatomy of the arms was different, the upper arm was longer than the lower. They didn't have thumbs, they had four different, she called them "tentacles", I think. Didn't have any fingernails. She then described how they had little things like suction cups on their fingertips.

I asked her were these men or women? [Were their] sex organs the same as ours? She said, "No, some were missing." The first thing that decomposes on a body would be the brain, next the sex organs, especially in women. But she thought there had probably been something, some animals. Some of these bodies were badly mutilated.

She said they got the bodies out of those containers [the ones he had seen in the backs of the ambulances, on the way into the hospital]. See they weren't at the crash site, they were about a mile or two from the crash site. She said they looked like they had their own little cabins. She said the lower portion, the abdomen and legs, was crushed, but the upper portion wasn't that bad. She told me the head was larger and it was kind of like, the eyes were different.

[A few weeks later, Dennis heard from his father.]

"What the hell'd you get into? What kind of trouble are you in?" I said, "I'm not in any trouble." And he said, "The hell you're not. The sheriff [an old friend of the elder Dennis] said that the base personnel have been in and they want to know all about your background."

Barbara Dugger

[Barbara Dugger is the granddaughter of George and Inez Wilcox. George was the sheriff who Mac Brazil contacted after discovering the crashed flying saucer. Kevin Randle interviewed Barbara Dugger in 1991.]

[My grandmother said] "Don't tell anybody. When the incident happened, the military police came to the jailhouse and told George and I that if we ever told anything about the incident, not only would we be killed, but our entire family would be killed."

They called my grandfather and someone came and told him about this incident. He went out there to the site. There was a big burned area and he saw debris. It was in the evening. There were four space beings. Their heads were large. They wore suits like silk. One of the little men was alive. If she [Inez] said it happened, it happened.

[Regarding the death threat, Barbara said Inez said:] "They meant it, Barbara. They were not kidding."

She said the event shocked him. He never wanted to be sheriff again after that. Grandmother ran for sheriff and was defeated. My grandmother was a very loyal citizen of the United States, and she thought it was in the best interest of the country not to talk about it.

Frank Joyce

[Frank Joyce worked at the radio station KGFL. He got a phone call from a man, presumably Mac Brazil, who reported wreckage on his ranch.]

He asked me what to do about it. I recommended he go to Roswell Army Air Base [sic].

The next thing I heard was that the PIO, [Lieutenant] Walter Haut, came into the station some time after I got this call. He handed me a news release printed on onionskin stationary and left immediately. I called him back at the base and said, "I suggest that you not release this type of story that says you have a flying saucer or flying disk." He said, "No, it's OK. I have the OK from the C.O. [Colonel Blanchard]."

I sent the release on the Western Union wire to the United Press bureau. After I returned to the station, there was a flash on the wire with the story: "The U.S. Army Air Corps [sic] says it has a flying disk." They typed a paragraph or two, and then other people got on the wire and asked for more information. Then the phone calls started coming on and I referred them to [the airfield].

Then the wire stopped and just hummed. Then a phone call came in, and the caller identified himself as an officer at the Pentagon, and this man said some very bad things about what would happen to me. He was really pretty nasty. Finally, I got through to him: I said, "You're talking about a release from the U.S. Army Air Corps." Bang, the phone went dead, he was just gone.

Then [station owner Walt] Whitmore called me and said, "Frank, what's going on down there?" He was quite upset. He asked, "Where did you get this story?" In the meantime, I got this [USAAF news] release and hid it, to have proof so no one could accuse me of making it up. Whitmore came in to the station and I gave him the release. He took it with him.

The next significant thing occurred in the evening. I got a call from [Mac] Brazil. He said we haven't got this story right. I invited him over to the station. He arrived not long after sunset. He was alone, but I had the feeling that we were being watched. He said something about a weather balloon. I said, "Look, this is completely different than what you told me on the phone the other day about the little green men," and that's when he said, "No, they weren't green." I had the feeling he was under tremendous pressure. He said, "Our lives will never be the same again."

Lydia Sleppy

[Lydia Sleppy was a Teletype operator at Roswell radio station KSWS. The event she describes below took place around 4:00 PM on July 7, 1947. She was interviewed in October 1990 by Stanton Friedman.]

We were Mutual Broadcasting and ABC, and if we had anything newsworthy, we would put it on the [Teletype] machine, and I was the one who did the typing. It was in my office. Mr. Tucker [Merle Tucker was the station owner] was in Washington DC trying to get an application approved for a station in El Paso, when this call came from John McBoyle [another KSWS staffer]. He told me he had something hot for the network. I said, "Give me a minute and I'll get the assistant manager," because if it was anything like that, I wanted one of them there while I was taking it down.

I went back and asked Mr. [Karl] Lambertz (he came up from the big Dallas station) if he would come up and watch. John was dictating and [Karl] was standing right at my shoulder. I got into it enough to know that it was a pretty big story, when the bell came on [signaling an interruption]. Typing came across: "This is the FBI, you will cease transmitting."

I had my shorthand pad, and I turned around and told [Karl] that I had been cut off, but that I could take it in shorthand and then we could call it in to the network. I took it in shorthand, as John went on to give the story. He had seen them take the thing away. He'd been out there [presumably at the Foster ranch] when they took it away. And at that time, if I remember correctly, John said they were gonna load it up and take it to Texas. But when the planes came in, they were from Wright Field.

Jesse Marcel

[Major Jesse Marcel was one of the first two military people to visit the Corona crash site. The other was Sheridan Cavitt, who to this day has refused to even acknowledge that he was there on the ranch with Marcel. Jesse Marcel died in 1982. He was interviewed in 1979.]

When we arrived at the crash site, it was amazing to see the vast amount of area it covered. It was nothing that hit the ground or exploded [on] the ground. It's something that must have exploded above ground, traveling perhaps at a high rate of speed, we don't know. But it scattered over an area of about three-quarters of a mile long, I would say, and fairly wide, several hundred feet wide. So we proceeded to pick up all the fragments we could find and load up our Jeep CarryAll. It was quite obvious to me, familiar with air activities, that it was not a weather balloon, nor was it an airplane or a missile. What it was, we didn't know. We just picked up the fragments. It was something I had never seen before, and I was pretty familiar with all air activities. We loaded up the CarryAll but I wasn't satisfied. I told Cavitt, "You drive this vehicle back to the base and I'll go back out there and pick up as much as I can put in the car,", which I did. But we picked up only a very small portion of the material that was there.

One thing that impressed me about the debris that we were referring to is the fact that a lot of it looked like parchment. A lot of it had a lot of little members [I-beams] with symbols that we had to call them hieroglyphics because I could not interpret them, they could not be read, they were just symbols, something that meant something and they were not all the same. The members that this was painted on -- by the way, those symbols were pink and purple, and lavender was actually what it was. And so these little members could not be broken, could not be burned. I even tried to burn that. It would not burn. The same with the parchment we had.

But something that is more astounding is that the piece of metal that we brought back was so thin, just like the tinfoil in a pack of cigarette paper. I didn't pay too much attention to that at first, until one of the GIs came to me and said, "You know the metal that was in there? I tried to bend that stuff and it won't bend. I even tried it with a sledgehammer. You can't make a dent on it."

I didn't go back to look at it myself again, because we were busy in the office and I had quite a bit of work to do. I am quite sure that this young fellow would not have lied to me about that, because he was a very truthful, very honest guy, so I accepted his word for that. So, beyond that, I didn't actually see him hit the matter with a sledgehammer, but he said, "It's definite that it cannot be bent and it's so light that it doesn't weigh anything." And that was true of all the material that was brought up. It was so light that it weighed practically nothing.

This particular piece of metal was, I would say, about two feet long and perhaps a foot wide. See that stuff weighs nothing, it's so thin, and it isn't any thicker than the tinfoil in a pack of cigarettes. So I tried to bend the stuff, it wouldn't bend. We even tried making a dent in it with a 16-pound sledgehammer, and there was still no dent in it. I didn't have the time to go out there and find out more about it, because I had so much other work to do that I just let it go. It's still a mystery to me as to what the whole thing was. Like I said before, I knew quite a bit about the material used in the air, but it was nothing I had seen before. And as of now, I still don't know what it was. So that's how it stands.

[Here is what Jesse Marcel said on the American television program "Unsolved Mysteries".]

There were just fragments strewn all over the area, an area about three quarters of a mile long and several hundred feet wide. So we proceeded to pick up the parts.

I tried to bend the stuff and it would not bend. I even tried to burn it and it would not burn. That stuff weighs nothing. It's not any thicker than tin foil in a pack of cigarettes. We even tried making a dent in it with a 16-pound sledgehammer, still no dent in it.

One thing I was certain of, being familiar with all our activities, that it was not a weather balloon, nor an aircraft, nor a missile. It was something else, which we didn't know what it was.

Walter Haut

[Second Lieutenant Walter Haut was a public information officer at Roswell AAF in 1947. Colonel Blanchard ordered Haut to issue a press release telling the country that the Army had found a flying saucer. Here is the text of Haut's press release.]

The many rumors regarding the flying disc became a reality yesterday when the Intelligence office of the 509th Bomb Group of the Eighth Air Force, Roswell Army Air Field, was fortunate enough to gain possession of a disc through the cooperation of one of the local ranchers and the sheriff's office of Chaves County.

The flying object landed on a ranch near Roswell sometime last week. Not having phone facilities, the rancher stored the disc until such time as he was able to contact the sheriff's office, who in turn notified Maj. Jesse A. Marcel of the 509th Bomb Group Intelligence Office.

Action was immediately taken and the disc was picked up at the rancher's home.
