What year was the supposed Roswell, NM incident? Thanks! - Jinx
It was also supposedly near the All-Star game. At least, that’s when the story hit the paper.
I’ve been to the UFO Museum in Roswell, and I was not impressed.
MOGUL (U.S. 47) A program of covert aerial reconnaissance of the Soviet Union conducted using high-altitude balloons. These balloons carried sonic and other sensors designed to detect Soviet nuclear tests (FIRST LIGHTNING). In July 1947, one of these devices crashed near Roswell, New Mexico. The Air Force initially reported that an Unidentified Flying Object (UFO) had crashed. Later, the Air Force maintained the object was a weather balloon. Many years later, Project MOGUL was revealed. See MOBY DICK.
