UFO wreckage site. Sandy Proctor points at the site where wreckage of a UFO was found on the Brazel ranch near Roswell, New Mexico, USA. It was near here on the evening of 2 July 1947 that many UFO sightings were reported during a thunderstorm. Next morning a rancher, Mac Brazel, and Sandy's brother D. Proctor, discovered strange wreckage in this field. When the impact site was located, a UFO craft and alien bodies were allegedly found. 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 it a cover up, & that aliens had arrived.
