(June 30) -- Sixty-three years ago, something fell out of the sky near Roswell, N.M., launching decades of speculation about the true nature of the object. Was it an extraterrestrial spacecraft that crashed in 1947, killing its alien occupants, or -- as the military originally claimed -- nothing more than a weather balloon? "It wasn't a weather balloon. I could swear on the biggest Bible there is. It wasn't a missile, it wasn't any part of any kind of aircraft that we know," said Maj. Jesse Marcel, who served as intelligence officer at Roswell Army Air Field (RAAF) in 1947.



But enough people favor the alien spaceship theory to warrant a huge annual festival this weekend, as Roswell -- or, if you will, UFO central -- celebrates the 63rd anniversary of the event that turned the 50,000-resident town into a global UFO culture destination.

I ran across that today in the AOL recent news section and figured i'd share it here. It seems like the "Roswell annual" festival is around the corner

I think it was some sort of UFO, but we will probably never know any time soon. I dont know how much of you had watched a miniseries called " Taken" by steven spielberg made in 2002. Best thing I have probably every watched. I dont know where the guy got all those crazy ideas ( maybes hes an insider ) but that mini series surely put a dent in my memory about UFO's and how the government acts towards them.

Nice find...you beat me to it!

One of the best articles written about Roswell that I've read. This is part 1 published today June 30 on AOL. Perhaps part 2 will be published tomorrow.

I bet the major news networks will give this year's Roswell Anniversary the same amount of coverage they gave it last year......ZERO!
