New Mexico Bucket List – U ~ Blogging Through The Alphabet

Late again. I don’t know how these summer weeks are flying by so fast but I look up and I have missed it again! This week, though, I think I will blame it on the UFO. 🙂

Yes, we are going to head over to eastern NM to visit Roswell. Roswell is known to any sci-fi person as the place where the UFO crashed in 1947. Well, the story goes that it actually crashed about 70 miles northwest of Roswell, which is close to Capitan, in the Capitan mountains. There is a lot of story to this and the more you read, the more you find, plausible or not. Who knows where the truth actually lies since there are more angles to the story than people to tell them.

Roswell has lots to share about the UFOs and aliens. The International UFO Museum prides itself on being the top international place for UFO research and artifacts. There is a festival held in Roswell every year. I believe that happens on a weekend around July 4th since that is the date that the UFO is believe to have crashed.

If you want to read more about the UFO crash, you can visit the History channel. The first video is kind of interesting and the second one (the one with the background of the cows) was actually the radio broadcast of the press release about the UFO. Do be careful if you have little ones around as there is one video (the one under the heading about Project Mogul) that had an intro that had a couple of images that startled me and I did not watch the whole video.

Anyhow, if you find aliens interesting or want to read more about the Roswell Incident, perhaps these will help or you can just do a Google search. That turns up quite a few options.

    there is always so much speculation about UFO’s isn’t there? visiting Roswell would be very interesting I think.

      We went to one of the museums several years ago and it was interesting to see what people have thought through time. From the plausible to the far reaches of the imagination and everything in between, but interesting.
