The US Government comments on UFOs!

On July 8, 1947 The Roswell Army Air Field issued an unusual press release indicating that on July 7th, the day before, some of its personnel had located and removed a crashed “flying disc” from a local ranch. A second press release corrected “flying disc” to “weather balloon”. One of the great conspiracy theories of the 20th century was born. A government commission convened in reaction to the media uproar concluded the findings were debris from a secret government program called Project Mogul which used high altitude weather balloons as listening and surveillance devices.

Proof is at International UFO Museum in Roswell NM. The Truth is Out There!
