The Not-Quite Roswell 1947 UFO Sighting
These newspaper clips were taken from an incident in Las Cruces, New Mexico, in June 1947. The town is little more than three hours from Roswell, and this happened about a month of the infamous Roswell crash. Meteorites and weather balloons are mentioned as possible culprits in the report, though the incident maintained some notoriety and intrigue because of its proximity to the Roswell incident.
Also notable: nowhere is Roswell mentioned in Project Blue Book. The incident was largely forgotten until the 1970s, when Stanton Friedman brought it back to the community, 30 years later. Some within the UFO community believe it to be a hoax.
