I couldn’t believe what I was seeing…My wife had just witnessed this several days before! I believed what she said she saw but I just really kind of shut it off I guess, now here I was sitting in the same place as when I was the night she jumped up yelling for me to come look, and I’m now seeing the same thing! An exceptionally huge craft shaped like a very widened V, very dark but not black, almost like you could see through it somewhat. I went in to tell my wife who was agitated that I didn’t come call her. I didn’t need to explain how little time there is to do anything but stare….she knows full well. As soon as I went in to tell her …she mentioned that she heard something that sounded like a helicopter, so I wnt to check. It wasn’t a helicopter but a handful of fighter jets racing in the same direction that the object disappeared into. We are not alien believers, in fact we always laugh when people ask us if all the stuff about Roswell is true. We say something like…lived here for 25 years and the oly aliens we’ve ever seen come from the border…..but we can’t say that now! We WANT to know whats going on now…this is crazy! Can anybody shed some light on this?

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – “We are not the only life in the universe. ”
Travis Walton says he knows first hand because he’s seen aliens. In 1975, Walton was logging in the Arizona Gila, when he and six other loggers spotted something in the sky.
“I got out of the truck and went to get a closer look and I was knocked unconscious by a bolt of energy,” said Walton. “I regained consciousness outside the town nearest where this happened about five days later. ”
It’s a story Walton has told all over the world; and next week he will tell it here in Albuquerque .

“Believe it or not, the US Government had a meeting with the aliens and they now have a call in the goings on.” — Stan Hernandez
On July 8th, 1947, it was reported that an alien spacecraft crash landed in Roswell, New Mexico. To many UFO and Alien enthusiasts, this is the event that presents concrete proof of alien existence. Eye witnesses reported that alien bodies were recovered and that one of the aliens actually made it out alive and was taken away by the government. Eye-witnesses were silenced and the event was chalked up as a “weather balloon” by the government. This story has changed over the years, but those that believe in an alien crash land haven’t changed their tune. They have maintained that something did happen that was out of this world.
Stan Hernandez asked RSR not to use his picture and we will honor that. He has had death threats and has been roughed up by the country that he loves. For years, he kept silent, but inspired by Ringside Report’s honest coverage of UFOs and aliens and his advanced age, Stan Hernandez has come forward to give his account of the Roswell crash and what he saw. I believe strongly that his account is credible and should clear up the debate.

Further to my post of yesterday regarding Annie Jacobsen’s new book, Area 51, there’s another bit of data worth reporting on that also has a bearing on the story discussed in her book that has provoked so much controversy in the last few days – namely, that Roswell was a Cold War op initiated by Soviet Premier Josef Stalin and designed to cause “alien invasion”-based hysteria in the U.S.
This additional piece of data comes via the notorious MJ12 documents. I’m not talking about the original documents (the Eisenhower Briefing Document and the Truman memo) that first publicly surfaced in Tim Good’s 1987 book, Above Top Secret, and that shortly afterwards surfaced just about here, there and everywhere.
Rather, I’m talking about the even more controversial collection that came to researchers Dr. Robert Wood and Ryan Wood via UFO researcher Timothy Cooper in the mid-to-late-1990s.

by Norio Hayakawa:
New Mexico is officially the Land of Enchantment.
However, it seems that there are some who take this state motto almost literally and even believe that it is indeed the Land of Enchantment in more ways than one.
Some even seem to regard New Mexico as a state that has always been (and continues to be) filled with unexplained mysteries, especially when it comes to UFOs and paranormal phenomena.
Of course New Mexico has Roswell, world famous for its alleged 1947 “crash” incident.
What really took place in July of 1947 outside of Roswell no one knows for sure.
Perhaps there may be prosaic explanations to that incident.
But, again, no one knows for sure.
We have also heard about alleged crashes near Corona, also nearMagdalena and in the Plains of San Agustin, all in New Mexico.
The bottom line to me is that whether it really took place or not( i.e., the alleged crash of an “extraterrestrial” spacecraft, as had been so claimed and described by witnesses at that time) is really not what matters the most.
Besides, it seems that we do not have a single publiclyacknowledged solid, tangible, physical, irrefutable documentary evidence that we have ever been (or are being) visited by physical extraterrstrial aliens in physical extraterrestrial spacecraft.
But this does not mean at all that the UFO phenomenon does not exist.
In fact, the UFO phenomenon seems to remain a great mystery, even from time immemorial.
It’s just that we cannot come to any hasty conclusions equating this phenomenon with physical extraterrestrial visitations.
That’s the bottom line.

ROSWELL, N.M. – It’s the place you would expect to visit in Roswell and brings in more than 12,000 visitors a month, but now big plans to build a new UFO Museum are not taking off.
Visitors come from all over the world, and according to theInternational UFO Museum and Research Center director they pump about $14 million into the city’s economy every year.
“It’s a wealth of material that they’ve gathered,” said California visitor Rhys Wade. “It’s pretty interesting stuff!”
Wade and his friend Lee Armstrong both toured the museum Monday. They said the plans for a new museum look fantastic and would even entice them to come back. The problem is the $14 million project hit a snag.
“Our new building is on temporary, indefinite, time frame I don’t know, it is on hold,” said Museum Director Julie Shuster. “We still have the whole block, and we still have all the plans.”
Shuster said the stand-still is due to a “paperwork error” that was out of the committe’s control. The museum is an independent non-profit, and does not collect funds from the city or the state.
The museum’s board of directors plan to re-evaluate things after the UFO Festival in July.
Roswell, NM, April 18, 2011 –(PR.com)– Roswell, New Mexico author and historian John LeMay will appear on the Jeff Rense Program, a nationwide radio show, on Friday, April 22, 2011 at 10 p.m. Central time. LeMay will discuss his new book, “Roswell USA: Towns That Celebrate UFOs, Lake Monsters, Bigfoot, and Other Weirdness,” which has just been released by RoswellBooks.com. Also appearing on the show with LeMay will be UFO researcher Noe Torres, editor and publisher of LeMay’s new book.
A lifelong Roswell resident and author of several books about New Mexico history, LeMay takes a fresh new look at the Roswell Incident from an “insider’s perspective.” Having been born and raised in the Alien Capital of the World, LeMay’s childhood was filled with tales of flying saucers and alien autopsies, and he rubbed shoulders with several key Roswell eyewitnesses, including Robert Shirkey, who said he saw UFO debris being loaded onto a B-29 bomber at the Roswell Army Air Field in 1947.
In “Roswell USA,” LeMay presents a careful reconstruction of the famous UFO crash, including details that many readers may not have previously heard. He also provides a unique glimpse into what it’s like to live in the one place on Earth most closely associated with flying saucers and extraterrestrials. His analysis of the odd things that happen in Roswell, especially during its annual UFO festival, is priceless.
LeMay’s keen insight and marvelous sense of humor also focus on some of Roswell’s other, lesser-known mysteries, such as the “alien ghost” that haunts the New Mexico Rehabilitation Center. Written with an eye to historical accuracy, and perhaps an occasional wink of the eye, LeMay’s book also chronicles some of Roswell’s “other” mysteries, such as the “second” Roswell UFO Crash (in 1949); Bottomless Lakes where cars sink into the depths and monsters emerge to the surface; the Headless Horsewoman of Lover’s Lane, a Victorian Era Spook with an axe to grind against young lovers; and others.
Roswell is by no means the only town to use strange events and bizarre creatures to draw tourism dollars. Nor was it the first. In the second part of LeMay’s book, he takes us on a tour of other towns all over the U.S. that celebrate weirdness – such as Churubusco, Indiana, where a giant turtle sighting in 1948 has served the town well in tourism for the last 60 plus years, and Flatwoods, West Virginia, where a one-time alleged sighting of a strange alien monster has since resulted in the “Flatwood Monster Days” festival. Also, there is Lake Champlain, New York, which has since become America’s very own Loch Ness. Point Pleasant, West Virginia, celebrates Mothman Days and has its own Mothman Museum. Kelley, Kentucky, is the site where aliens from outer space laid siege to a farm house in 1955. And, many UFO enthusiasts visit a lonely country cemetery in Aurora, Texas, where lie the remains of an extraterrestrial, or so they believe, that crashed there in 1897.
“Roswell USA” is published by RoswellBooks.com, and is available in paperback for $14.95 from the author’s Web site at RoswellUSA.com. It is also available on Amazon.com and other major online retailers, and in the Roswell area, may be purchased at Roswell Landing, 205 North Main Street (Phone: 575-622-3036). It features over 50 photographs and illustrations, original cartoons by Neil Riebe, and impressive cover art by Brian Norwood. The book is also available for the Amazon Kindle.
Author John LeMay is the author of several books about the history of New Mexico. His works include “Images of America: Roswell,” “Postcards of America: Roswell,” “Images of America: Chaves County,” and “Images of America: Towns of Lincoln County,” all published by Arcadia Publishing of Mount Pleasant, South Carolina. LeMay is also an archivist and serves on the board of directors for the Historical Society for Southeast New Mexico, located in Roswell.
Noe Torres, editor and publisher of “Roswell USA,” has authored a number of books regarding historical UFO cases, including the critically-acclaimed “Ultimate Guide to the Roswell UFO Crash” published in 2010 by RoswellBooks.com. Torres is the section director for the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) in South Texas and has appeared on numbers television and radio programs. He is a regular speaker at the annual Roswell UFO Festival held each July in Roswell, New Mexico.
