Roswell is famously known as the alien mecca not only in the U.S. but the world. In 1947, an alleged crash of a flying saucer took place in this remote U.S. town. To mark the 70th anniversary of the mysterious event, a new UFO sighting is being investigated. The Mutual UFO Network (MUFON), regarded as the biggest organisation committed to alien and UFO research, is looking into a report from a mother involving a strange sighting in the New Mexico town.
The unnamed mother said in a report to MUFON that she was driving with her son at around 9 pm when out of the corner of her eye, she saw a stationary, white and red light that was too big to be a star. She did not pay attention to the odd aerial sight right away.
She saw it on the horizon and could see it through her windshield. A few seconds later, she noticed another light on the left to the first. It was the time she looked directly at them.
The first light then disappeared after a few more seconds, but a third light then appeared on the left of the second. Then the lights vanished after about five seconds more, but made an appearance again in a different location and repeated the sequence.
The woman tried to rationalise the lights, but the lights did not appear like any aircraft. She even thought they could be fireworks, but she did not hear any sound and see any trail or explosion.
The mother decided to pull over on the side of the road and remained there for around five minutes, hoping to see those lights again. She wanted to record them and show someone what she had seen, but unfortunately, they did not reappear when they were parked there.
The unusual event took place on April 13.
MUFON researchers are investigating the case.
Roswell has been considered as the capital city of UFO since July 1947. The military announced in one press release that it had recovered the debris of a crashed flying saucer in the desert nearby. However, they retracted the statement the following day, saying the flying saucer was just a damaged Air Force balloon.
Witnesses later surfaced and claimed that there had been extra-terrestrial bodies within the crashed UFO. The claim further stated that the dead alien bodies were taken to the mysterious, top-secret Area 51 military facility in Nevada, along with the wreckage of the flying saucer.
The Roswell UFO Incident has gone on to become the largest UFO conspiracy theory until today.
There are around 50 alleged UFO sightings related to Roswell in the MUFON database.
