What really happened over the summer in 1947 in Roswell, New Mexico? People have debated this topic countless times. Despite all of the deviations of what happened, there is a general timeline. Sometime during the months of June and July 1947, an aircraft landed in Mac Brazel’s ranch; Brazel proceeded to tell Sheriff George Wilcox. He sent a member of the Roswell Army Air Field base to look at the wreckage on Brazel’s ranch. This person took some of the debris back to the base for further inspection. On July 8, 1947, the newspapers published stories about how someone found a flying saucer in New Mexico. However, the government told the newspapers to report that it was merely a weather balloon that had crashed. After that, everybody simply accepted the story and dropped the topic. Throughout that story, many pieces of evidence went untold to the media. There were numerous pictures that went unreleased. Many affidavits went unnoticed and nobody paid attention to inconsistencies in the government’s justifications. Because of explicative photographs, several eyewitness accounts, and contradictory government explanations, there is extensive proof that the government concealed an alien landing in Roswell, New Mexico.
There are many detailed, certified photos that disclose evidence that there was a spacecraft crash in Roswell in 1947. One vital photograph was of the Ramey memo. The Associated Press took this photograph on July 8, 1947, six days after the alleged sightings. Brigadier General Roger Ramey was looking over the apparent debris from the crash with Colonel Thomas Dubose. A slip of paper hung out of Ramey’s pocket in this photograph. Due to technological advancements, the paper is mostly legible. Computers have enhanced this picture to decipher the words, “victims”, “flying disk”, and “wreck” (Roswell Smoking Gun, the Ramey Memo, UFO Casebook Files). Another phrase that Ramey mentioned in the memo was “they will ship”. Based on the context of this message, it implies that the victims of the wreck will be shipped to Fort Worth, Texas for further analysis (Roswell Proof – Ramey Memo).
Another key photograph was the headline of the Roswell Daily Record from July 8, which read, “RAAF Captures Flying Saucer On Ranch in Roswell Region”. Below that, a sub-headline stated that no details of the flying disk were known. This headline proves that the United States military intervened in this incident, and it also verifies that a flying object definitely crashed near Roswell, New Mexico. Additionally, the Roswell Daily Record reported that the disk was discovered on a ranch near Roswell (Berlitz and Moore 27). These two photographs are essential to prove that there were aliens at the site of the crash because they provide physical evidence that there were victims recovered.
Throughout June and July of 1947, multiple people claimed that they saw at least one flying saucer. The major witness in the Roswell occurrence was...
