If you are a Texan, you may remember the Alamo, but you may not remember the time that huge spaceship crashed in Aurora, Texas, killing the alien pilot inside.
Unbelievably, there have been many reported alien UFO crashes over the years, from before and after Roswell, and one of the more amazing cases ever occurred as far back as 1897, well before planes, drones, satellites, or Elon Musk rockets could be misidentified.
According to local news reports as well as eyewitness reports, a large, metal cigar-shaped mystery craft crashed into a windmill. Inside the ship was a dead body that, according to witnesses, did not appear to be human and could have even been from Mars. The townspeople buried the body, and the rest is history.
Since the event, there have been many accusations that the story was hoaxed, all in an effort to drum up publicity for a dying town.
However, there is no direct evidence that anything was hoaxed, just that different witnesses reported different details about the event (common with witness testimony), and it is important to note that other sightings of "mystery airships" just like the one in Aurora were well documented in the US during this time frame!
As always, you be the judge on whether or not you think an alien spaceship really crashed in Aurora, Texas in 1897! Share your theories on this story and more in the comments or on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram.

In 1957, not long after Roswell, a small, copper-colored flying saucer crash landed in a village near Scarborough, England. Three friends were driving by the Silpho Moor when they saw the crashing object, which to them looked like a falling, red star. Coincidentally, their car abruptly stopped working. One of the friends, Fred Taylor, then left the stranded vehicle to have a look at the crash site. Taylor was lucky enough to stumble across a "mini" flying saucer, however when he tried to pick it up, he was surprised at how heavy the object was, likely 50 to 60 pounds.
Taylor was actually not able to retrieve the object at the time, due to its surprising weight, but eventually the physical evidence came to light.
The metal disc was nearly impossible to pry open, but it was worth the effort. Inside was a tiny book with 17 copper pages containing hieroglyphs, which were later and roughly translated to be an alien's warning to humankind to stop their violent ways.
Unfortunately, the Silpho Moor saucer mysteriously disappeared, and has not been seen since.
Pieces of the famous saucer were just recently discovered hiding in the archives of a science museum, according to many news sources, including the BBC.
Some claim the UFO fragments have been tested and were proven to be of Earthly origin, and even suggest the UFO to be a hoax. UFO researchers may note many "markers" of this UFO case that give it some credibility, however, like the appearance of hieroglyphs (also seen on the Roswell UFO debris, and by witnesses of the Rendlesham UFO) and the witness' car malfunctioning (also common near UFO sightings, like in the Cash-Landrum incident in the 1980s in Texas).
As well, even if the Silpho Moor flying saucer did not have the expected exotic material, that doesn't really prove that a hoax occurred. Just that the "alien" theory could be an oversimplified one. Consider this; if UFOs are real but are not of extraterrestrial origin, could they be of unknown terrestrial origin? Could there be "aliens" living among us?
A really amazing and detailed testimony and drawing of a "jellyfish"-like UFO hovering over the Hudson River has been submitted to MUFON (case 89966):
Organic Jelly Fish/Octopus looking UFO over the Hudson River
What is perhaps even more amazing than this report is that there have been others like it before. TexasUFOs covered two similarly interesting "jellyfish" UFO sightings, one in Texas in the December of 2016, and one in the Caribbean during that same year. In the case in the Caribbean, the sighting was caused by lightning. However, the case in Texas still has no explanation.
Do you think this "jellyfish" UFO could have been caused by lightning, like in other cases, or could it be much more mysterious than that? Share your theories on this sighting and more in the comments below or on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram!

Amazing footage showing a dark and ominous craft flying slowly over Santiago, Chile in 2013 has started to make the rounds on the Internet again. The video is one of the more impressive ones out there, but unfortunately over the years, details about the sighting have been lost. As always, you be the judge on whether you think this UFO is alien, man-made (some have suggested this is a group of helicopters), or fake:
Spooky footage showing a dark round sphere hovering in the daytime sky and also making surprising movements and bouncing around, has circulated online for years. Some claim the footage is from 2010, while others, including a forum poster on Reddit, claim it is from 1995. Check out this classic UFO video, which recently resurfaced on Reddit along with apparent new witness testimony, and be the judge for yourself on whether or not this is real:
B. came to the place alone just to videotape a cedar tree – the only tree in that area. He borrowed the camera from his friend only for short period. After 5 minutes of video shooting, B. has noticed all of a sudden some movement close to him. When he realized, that was a UFO, he hesitated a little and started to watch it: “By doing this I was confused and forgot, that I had a camera. When I finally realized that I could shoot it, I took the camera but the object has disappeared. I was overwhelmed by disappointment. I was running back in the forest looking for that object. Nothing happened. And suddenly I noticed it on the distance of 50 meters over a glade. I started to shoot it.”
According to locals, UFO sightings are common the area.
Maybe that's why there an alien monument was built there in 2011:
Some of the most amazing UFO and alien videos and stories originate in Russia, making one wonder if there's something about Russia that attracts strangeness.
