The Roswell UFO Incident
In the summer of 1947, either late June or the first week of July, a New Mexico ranch foreman named Mac Brazel reported finding strange debris in an open field near the town of Roswell. An intriguing narrative developed rapidly: The material may be from a crashed alien craft, called a “flying disk” or “flying saucer,” now known as a UFO.
The U.S. government soon claimed it was a downed high-level weather balloon and dismissed the alien crash story. Over the years, the events have become known as “The Roswell UFO Incident,” or simply “Roswell.”
In the 1970s, interest revived in the Roswell story. Did an alien spacecraft really crash in the New Mexico desert in 1947? Were aliens recovered from the crash site, possibly one or two still alive? Did the government and military work together to cover up the story? The Roswell UFO Incident has subsequently grown in the public consciousness to the point it is now widely considered the highest profile UFO case on record.
A breathtaking exposé that reads like a thriller, The Day After Roswell is a stunning depiction of just what happened in Roswell, New Mexico all those years ago and how the effects of this mysterious unidentified aircraft crash are still relevant today.
