Embracing the Visitors

As many of you know, Roswell is the site of a mysterious crash in 1947 that is still the only time the military has issued a press release indicating that a flying saucer had been recovered. Of course the next day they recanted this story and reissued a release with photo claiming that the first release was mistaken and that the “disk” they found was simply the remains of an experimental weather balloon… hmmmmm….. More on that in our International UFO museum tour.

But, Roswell has embraced this crash, whatever landed there, and used it as a beacon for international tourism with more gusto than most could imagine – though I probably could’ve used MORE Alien-ness!

Here are some photos around town, with commentary.
