When did the UFO crash in Roswell?
On July 2, 1947, an object crash landed on a ranch, approximately 75 miles northwest of Roswell, leaving a large field of debris. The local air base at Roswell investigated after the rancher first reported it to Roswell authorities on July 6. On July 8, the Roswell Army Air Field (RAAF) announced it had recovered a "flying disk". A few hours after the initial "flying disk" press release, U.S. Army Air Force officials stated that it was not a UFO, but a weather balloon. When the question of what crashed was revived in the early 1980s, the "Roswell Incident" became a focus of conspiracy theorists, "abductees," and UFO investigators. It is believed the crashed UFO's were used for 'reverse engineering', explaining the rapid advancement in technology since that time.

The acronym stands for Unidentified Flying Object. By definition, if you happen to see something in the sky and you don't know what it is, you are entitled to describe it an a… UFO. This could include secret military planes or UAV's (unmanned aerial vehicles) or could even be flying craft of unknown origin. There is speculation that UFO's could be piloted by alien species from extra-terrestrial origin, but this is speculation. It could also be beings from other dimensions, time-travelers from the future or simply natural phenomenon being misinterpreted. Since we know there are natural phenomena, and don't know there are aliens, Occam's Razor says the most likely explanation would be natural phenomena. There are many far more likely explanations. "UFO" does not stand for "Alien Spacecraft" Note: An unidentified object to one observer may simply be a very simple object to another observer. If an object is considered to be unidentified by several trained observers, then scientific explanations should be applied to rule out natural reasons. If all logical and scientific reasons are exhausted, then the observed object will remain unexplained. Objects viewed from the ground or air can often appear to do unusual things. This is due to inversions of air, time of day, distance from the object, and many other factors. 99% of all objects have a logical explanation. The remaining 1% is left for debate as to their origins. The FY117 is a classic example of a very unusual flying aircraft. Before the admission of the United States Air force as to the new aircraft, it was considered to be an unidentified flying object.
Maps of the Roswell crash sites can be found at the related links below. Actual directions to all three of the crash sites are listed below, but it is best to contact either t…he UFO Museum or the Roswell UFO Festival for tours. 1) Ragsdale Site: Four-wheel drive required. From US 285 turn west on Pine Lodge Rd. end travel 45 miles. Just past Mile Marker 33 is a sign for Boy Scout Mtn. Turn onto Forest Rd. 130 and drive 3.7 miles. Turn left onto a jeep road and drive a little more than a mile. You will cross a creek, climb a hill and see a stone campfire ring on the left at the crest of the hill. Follow a short trail to the rock, which is about 5 feet tall and is split in two. 2) Brazel Site: From Corona, go east on NM 247 and just past Mile Marker 17, turn right at the Corona Compressor Station sign. The site is about 16 miles southeast of the turnoff. It is on Bureau of Land Management property, which is open to the public but reaching the site requires passing through private ranch land, which is fenced and gated. 3) Corn Site: Drive north from Roswell on US 285. You will see a large sign advertising the crash site on the west side of the road about 20 miles north of town. The site sits about eight miles from US 285 on private land. It is closed to all but organized tours. If you know how to locate map coordinates, the debris field on the former Foster Ranch that was located by ranch-hand Mac Brazel is centered near 33º56.35'N, 105º18.41'W. The alleged Ragsdale crash site is located at 33º37.38'N, 105º13.60'W. The Roswell UFO Museum The best way to obtain information on how to visit the actual crash site is to directly contact the International UFO Museum and Research Center 114 North Main Street, Box 2221 Roswell, NM 88202-2221 Phone (505) 625-9495 or see the website link below. If you don't mind the crowds, a good time to go is during the 2010 Roswell UFO Festival, which will occur between July 1-4, 2010 and they also arrange tours.
They were not buried, they are contained in a freezing compartment in an underground military base in Germany although they may well have been transferred to America who have …hundreds of underground bases and can keep them hidden from the public.
UFO means "unidentified flying object", which means you look up and see something and don't know what it is. In that sense UFOs are real. There are plenty of natural and man-m…ade thing in the sky that are hard to identify. Some people think "UFO" stands for "Alien Spacecraft", which would of course be "A.S.". In real life, neither aliens nor alien spacecraft are known to actually exist, which makes them the least likely explanation for these events.
No. What "crashed" was probably a film cache from a spy satellite or high altitude balloon. It was only a "UFO" to those who were not informed about what had actually come dow…n out of the sky. To those who knew, it was not an "Unidentified Flying Object." Since 1947 was well before satellites, that means it was a balloon. Specifically, Project MOGUL's Flight # 4 which was tracked to within a few miles of the "crash" site. MOGUL was top secret (a spy balloon prototype), so the AAF used the cover story of a weather balloon. Actually, the balloon used in MOGUL was an off-the-shelf weather balloon, so it wasn't even a lie. The secret part was the instrument package, which was not photographed in General Ramey's office, as the rest of the debris was.
Bringing in the most tourism dollars for having the least to show the tourists. They don't have the MOGUL balloon, they don't have the radar reflectors, they don't have the so…nobuoy... at least when you visit The Thing, there is a paper-mache mummy to look at.
Not in real life. It is just something for people to have fun pretending is real. Kinda like "Santa Claus" is for kids. After generations of "true believers", not one has show…n up with so much as one cell of alien life, or one speck of transhuman technology. The Roswell incident was a relatively innocuous report in 1947 that mushroomed into popular culture in the 1980's due to dozens of "recollections" and second-hand accounts 30 to 40 years after the fact. The vast majority of these claims are acknowledged to be fictional, and UFO theorists continue to debate what, if anything, actually might have occurred. The various investigations led to new public reports by the USAF in 1995 and 1997, which completely dismissed any claims of aliens or UFOs in the event. On the Lighter Side Yes, actually there were aliens. I'm in a Top Secret governmental organization studying the astronomy of unknown universes, so I can't say much. There was definitely a sign that Aliens exist. I believe that the reason the aliens crashed was that the fuel they run on is water. Which would explain the reason they come to Earth. You may have heard the theory of underwater aliens. There you go. Just think. All things add up. Why Come Here for Water? No, actually not. Why would the government spend a dime trying to classify "unknown universes" and astronomy? And why would aliens come to Earth, fight their way in and out of Earth's gravity, instead of simply snagging some ice from an iceteroid, comet, or for that matter, Saturn's rings? Now explain why they would come to this solar system to fuel up. Our water can't be better than anyone else's water!
Roswell, in the state of New Mexico, USA, is famous because on July 8, 1947 the United States Military took possession of some crash debris. The military says the debris was f…rom a classified experimental surveillance balloon. Many believers in UFOs claim it was a crashed alien flying craft and that it contained several aliens, probably dead, and that the military engaged in a cover up. So far, there is no shred of hard evidence to support these claims. It is probably the best known, least proven, and most controversial UFO incidents ever. Roswell is best known for bringing in the most tourist bucks for the least amount of anything to show. An armload of tinfoil, balsa, fishing line, and sunrotted weather balloons, has been leveraged into millions of dollars of income. Not bad, considering they don't even have the armload of stuff to show the tourists when they arrive. Even "The Thing" has a paper-mache mummy to look at. An alleged UFO crash, and conspiracy theories about it. It should be duly noted that no one actually saw a UFO crash. It should also be noted that the only hard evidence (photos of the debris) are clearly of rubber balloons and foil radar targets, consistent with the Project MOGUL spying balloon prototype it is thought to have been. UFO silliness.
The incident at Roswell was not a fake as such; it was simply the removal and coverup of a prototype spy balloon device, from a project called MOGUL. About 40 years later some… guy spun a yarn, with no actual evidence of course, that what was recovered was an alien spacecraft. A lot of other headline hounds joined in... you would think this isolated spot in the middle of nowhere was Grand Central Station! Some people like to pretend that some of our technology came from the wreck, but transistors were patented, and ignored, in the 1920's. And DuPont was making Lucite optical fibers in the Thirties! It is fun to *pretend* that Roswell was an alien spacecraft crash, but until something solid, not tall tales, comes along, there is no reason to *believe* it. The answer to this question is based purely on your opinion, there is evedince saying something crashed there but if you do not belive in alines then you are not going to belive Roswells' tales.

But can we assume everyone whotells us that they have seen what appears to them to be aliensand/or alien spacecraft is lying?
An UFO is an Unidentified Flying Object. "UFO" is a TLA ... a Three Letter Acronym ... for the phrase "Unidentified Flying Object". Once an object has been identified, it i…s no longer a UFO. Since those that are still listed as "UFO"s remain unidentified, it's not possible to say what they are, other than unidentified. A UFO is an abbreviation for Unidentified Flying Object.
Well there are UFOs as they stand for Unidentified Flying Objects. Which basically means anything flying that can't be identified. So it could refer to a balloon floating by t…o a regular airplane to an alien spacecraft (flying saucer).
How many written reports are there regarding the UFO crash near Aurora Texas on or around April 17th of 1897?
Appearently, the April 17, 1897, Aurora Texas, crash was one of the most widely covered UFO sightings until Roswell, NM, in 1947. Deemed one of the most important alleged cras…h sights by UFOlogists it still gets more than enough publicity and study.
In 1947, the US Army sent up a balloon from White Sands, New Mexico to look for evidence of radioactive fallout from Russian atomic bomb tests. This balloon landed in Roswell,… New Mexico. At first the balloon was said to be from outer space in a small local newspaper, but, was later identified as being just a balloon. Of course, no one makes any money, or gains any fame, from a simple story of a balloon; so con artists trying to make money and gain fame have kept the simple story going in an attempt to cash in on it from gullible people. It was just a balloon. If it were a spacecraft from outer space, it would not have been a small story in a local newspaper. It would be big news around the world. It was just a balloon, and nothing more.
