Alien. Head and torso of a replica alien on an autopsy table as an exhibit at the International UFO Museum and Research Center in Roswell, USA. The town has tourist attractions around the theme of UFO's. It was near Roswell on 2 July 1947 that UFO sightings were reported during a thunderstorm. Strange wreckage was found in a field and when the impact site was located, a UFO craft and alien bodies were allegedly found and an autopsy conducted. On 8 July 1947, the Roswell Daily Record announced the capture of a flying saucer. The official explanation was that it was a crashed weather balloon. Many Roswell inhabitants, however, believe that aliens had arrived.
