Roswell Incident

   On July 7th, 1947, "something" crashed outside of Roswell, New Mexico on William Brazel's farm. The Air Force first said a "flying disk" had been recovered, but within hours said it was a weather balloon. Brazel had lived next to an Air Force base for many years and had weather balloons land on his property before. He said what he found was not a weather balloon. The pieces of the U.F.O. were sent to Wright Air Field. In 1979 Major Marcel, the first person Brazel showed the U.F.O. to, and other eye witnesses, said the object was a flying disk, not a weather balloon. In 1994, the Air Force admitted they had lied, and what was found was a Project Mogul Balloon. The controversy continues to this day.
