UFOs and Aliens on Earth
If you had mentioned seeing a Unidentified Flying
Object (UFO), or spaceship from another planet 100 years
ago, you would probably be thought of as a raving lunatic.
If you had mentioned one 50 years ago, the case would be
thought about, but with much suspicion. Today, many people
would believe you, and, if you had evidence to prove it, the
government would take a very close interest in your case,
yet many people would call you an idiot. Despite all the
evidence that indicates UFO\'s exist, there are still many
people who will not listen to any evidence, and the
government covers up evidence and alters news releases on
The Roswell case is one of the best documented, and
most controversial UFO cases ever. In July of 1949, at a
small airforce base in Roswell, New Mexico, a small,
brightly glowing object was observed to crash land at about
11:30 P.M. There were many people who had seen the crash,
and they had described that it was "brighter, and fell much
slower than any meteors" they had ever seen. At St. Mary\'s
Hospital in Roswell, two Catholic nuns, saw the crash,
directly north of them, and logged the crash to have
occurred on July 4, between 10:00 and 11:30 PM.
Southwest of the base, Corporal E. L. Pyles looked
to see what at first he thought was a shooting star, only it
seemed to be to large to be one. He testifies that the
crash happened about 11:00 PM also.
There were many Military officers in the area who
had seen the object as well. The object was appearing on
military radars for many days before the crash. Before the
crash, on July 1, all of the officers and technicians at the
base had been tracking an unidentified object on their
radars. Starting on July 2nd, Steve MacKenzie, who was
stationed at Roswell, was ordered to report to the White
Sands Proving Ground radar sites and report directly to the
brigadier general at the base. The Brigadier General\'s
orders were to inform him of all the movements the object
made. At White Sands, there had been doubt as to whether
this object was a malfunction of radar equipment, or, if it
was in fact, real. So , the airforce had other radar sites
in Albuquerque and Roswell look at the area on their radars.
It was shown that they had, in fact, a real object.
During the evening of July 4, the object changed.
It was growing bigger, then shrinking back to it\'s original
size, the blip was pulsating, then the blip grew quite
large, and disappeared from the screen. Because sites in
Albuquerque, White Sands and Roswell were tracking the
object, the airforce had a vague location about where it
crashed. The airforce then decided to launch a
comprehensive search the following morning.
The airforce, however, was the last to arrive at the
site. A group of archaeologists being led by Dr. W. Curry
Holden, had arrived earlier. One of the students recorded
the object as "a crashed wingless plane, with a flat
fuselage." The archaeologists then left to inform local
authorities of an aircraft accident.
When the airforce arrived at the Roswell crash site,
there were two other people exploring, a man named Ragsdale
and a woman named Truelove. They had been collecting pieces
of metal from the site, tossing it into their jeep . But,
what they saw after that was much more significant. There
were bodies, lying about. There were several of them, about
four or five feet long. There were five in total, obviously
not human. There were three dead bodies, one in critical
condition, and one, apparently fine. They threw the debris
clear of their jeep when the airforce started driving up,
and got out of there as fast as they could because of fear
of being arrested. When the airforce arrived, they looked
around, and they saw the large craft in the side of the
mountain, partly buried, leaning at about a 30 degree angle,
with large pieces of debris scattered about. After the
airforce had searched and photographed the area, they began
cleaning up. The bodies were loaded into ambulances after
being put into body bags. The living creature was

When asked about the incidents, the government would make something up for an explanation instead of telling the truth. It’s up to people like you and me to find out what really happened. The number of sightings of UFOs in the United States alone is phenomenal. Even though it has been determined that many photog
