In the summer of 1947, a rancher found in his sheep pasture strange debris scattered about. When the news broke in the nearby town of Roswell, New Mexico, military reports seemed to confirm the debris belonged to a flying disc. However, the message was soon altered, and the central narrative declared this was the result of a weather balloon crash. However, 75 years later, UFO enthusiasts still suspect otherwise.
