I would take it and/or pieces of it back home to my garage. I would likely toss them into the back of my car or truck, and just drive them home.
People would likely assume it was a piece of scrap - or post "hey, I saw this guy driving with some strange scrap in the back of his truck here in
town, it might have been a UFO" on ATS and that would pretty much be the end of it.
Once in my garage, it's essentially safe from discovery. I can't find anything in that place, and I live here and have moved everything in it to
all four corners of the place at one point or another.
I would study it myself, mostly, with what spare money and time I had. I may contact various physicists and chemists on my own accord with some
questions about certain effects or something - but it would just be like "hey, I was just wondering what would happen if...." or "If I were to
place two [objects] like this, and do this to them, what would the likely effect be?"
Simple stuff that is innocent in content.
If I run into some people who I feel are trustworthy enough and share a vision very similar to my own, then I would bring them in on it.
Again, while there may be various attempts to locate such an object by the various agencies - they would just run into a wall... "well, it
crashed.... and when we got here... it was gone." If you just run in, take the silly thing, and leave as if you were picking up a rock on the side
of the road and taking it home to your water garden - no one will think anything of it. If you get all elaborate, you'll leave something behind and
they will trace it to find you.
Of course, it would really depend upon what I found. I don't do alien bodies. If there are bodies, I would contact the authorities and/or agencies,
and annoy the living hell out of whomever shows up to get it (though, likely they don't know anything, they are told to go get it and bring it back
and not ask too many questions, themselves). If I could, I would use the experience to discover as much as I could about the structure of those types
of operations, and hopefully discover a few names that I could get a hold of and try and get assigned to the study of such craft.
Or I might do that with both situations.
But, really, the main reason I would decide to report such a landing is the risk of biological contamination. I don't know what kinds of bacteria
might be inside of that thing (or parasites, or something else, entirely); but it is likely in the best interest for everyone to report it and have
those who have a few more gadgets than I do investigate the crash. I'd rather not be the "dumb son of a bitch" who brings home a crashed space
craft and ends up killing half of his town in some type of plague and endangering the rest of the world. Sure, I would like to investigate what all
kinds of techno-gadgets these critters are/would-be using, but even though the chances that a bacterium (even of foreign origin) would be hazardous to
humans is rather low, I would rather do what I can to keep a potential outbreak from being catastrophic - even the cost of it is to 'give up' a
