Nearly 70 years ago, a flying saucer landed in Roswell, New Mexico and the rest is history. Or should we say the rest is a mystery? Shortly after newspapers published headlines of a flying saucer landing in Roswell, the sighting was explained as a weather balloon.
Since that fateful day, all kinds of cover stories for the event have been suggested, but ufologists don't debate Roswell these days. After all, Roswell was not the only UFO crash site on the planet. It appears that silver disc-shaped crafts and gray, telepathic aliens seem to visit (and unfortunately crash) on our planet with an amazing frequency. Believe it or not, there are a lot more cases than these:
1. Alien Buried in Texas: 1897
In April 1897 a giant "airship" flew over a rural Texas farm, and then awkwardly slowed and crash landed near a wind mill with a loud explosion. The locals investigated the craft and found a deceased and disfigured being in it, who had materials with hieroglyphics on them. The townspeople buried the poor alien in the cemetery. While a journalist made accusations that the townspeople hoaxed the crash, nobody could prove them, and witnesses have since spoken out about it. Unfortunately after the military visited the grave site, nobody has been able to investigate further. The Aurora, Texas cemetery is still a tourist attraction, however.
2. Live Alien Recovered in Hungary: 1996
Back in March, TexasUFOs happened upon several top-secret government documents leaked by Slovakian ufologists to MUFON. TexasUFOs was honored to help disclose the files, and was able to confirm the credibility of the files with independent investigation, and then share it with the UFO community. The files detail an incredible crash between a Hungarian pilot and an extra-terrestrial spacecraft in September 1996, and the subsequent recovery of a live alien, as well as interactions with it. The alien didn't communicate with his or her "captors" and seemed to be awaiting rescue.
3. Live Alien Recovered in South Africa: 1989
As in Hungary and Roswell, another small 4-foot gray, hairless, "telepathic" humanoid being was recovered from a crashed UFO (specifically a 459-foot wide silver disc-shaped object) in a desert along the border of South Africa and Botswana in May 1989. The US Air Force went to investigate (Operation Silver Diamond), and documents about it were briefly leaked online. The case has been "debunked" in recent years, with the US government stating the UFO was just a satellite re-entering orbit. But as you can imagine, most ufogloists do not buy that explanation. And they probably shouldn't.
4. UFO and Alien Recovered in Arizona: 1953
An engineer was on a special assignment with the US Air Force when he was taken to a secret location (believed to be in Kingman, Arizona) on a bus with the windows blacked out. When he got to the location, he saw a 30-foot, aluminum craft, which had embedded itself into the sand, as well as, you guessed it, another 4-foot-tall humanoid being, who was wearing a skull cap and a seamless suit.
5. UFO Crash "Covered Up" as Meteor in Pennsylvania: 1965
In December 1965, hundreds of eyewitnesses in Pennsylvania, Michigan, and Ohio witnessed a UFO crash. A large object was seen traveling in the sky for six minutes before it crashed into the earth, and once it did, sonic booms and shock waves were felt by all surrounding it. There were also reports of blue flashing lights. The government was quick to say it was a meteor, however that was just a cover story, as the real investigation was classified as "Project MoonDust."
