In July 1947, an unidentified flying object crashed into the desert close to the Air Force base in Roswell, New Mexico. The United States Air force made many attempts to conclude that the crash was nothing more than a misguided weather balloon. However, other people believed that the weather balloon was merely a cover up by the government and that, it was more than likely something not of this planet. The theory of extraterrestrial life is not as farfetched as it may seem, and there is a rather large collection of evidence and documentation supporting this theory. Looking back on evidences discovered prior to the theory would almost seem more reasonable to believe than most would think. The government can appear to be very unreliable when providing truthful information about the event and disclosing certain aspects of it. Many think that they are covering up the truth behind the mystery of the Roswell crash because the use of government secrecy has become more excessive.

When the US Government and Military found the wreckage, they initially stated that they had come into possession of a UFO, or Unidentified Flying Object. They then made more than one attempt at manipulating documents and re-releasing newspaper issues of previous government information that was put out regarding the crash.

More than one Resident witnessed the crash and most accounts described it as something not of this planet. The government denies all evidence on these accounts and has covered it up for many years. More knowledge of the event has been recently released and more information has become available to the public. With the evidence we have gathered to this day, it looks to be something extraordinary.
