Roswell Incident
1947 front pages

Welcome to the Roswell Daily Record’s ‘Roswell Incident’Website. Here, you will find everything you need to know about our event, celebrating one of the most pivotal moments in modern UFO history.

In July 1947, something streaked out of the sky, hitting the ground outside of Roswell, New Mexico, beginning 70 years of ongoing speculation as to what the object was. According to initial information provided to the Roswell Daily Record by the Roswell Army Air Field, the startling headlines claimed that the military had recovered a flying saucer from a nearby ranch.

Overnight, the story changed from a flying saucer to a weather balloon, and over the ensuing years, that explanation morphed into a military high-altitude surveillance program. Seven decades have resulted in conspiracy theories that the U.S. government has covered up the possibility that an alien spacecraft and its otherworldly crew was responsible for the 1947 crash.

Through it all, and continuing to this day, the Roswell Daily Record was there to report the news and to spark the public interest and 70 years of fascination with this story. The Roswell Daily Record is still here as a driving force, presenting the facts and the speculation.

Join us this year, June 30th through July 2nd, for the Roswell Daily Record celebration of the 70th anniversary of what has become known as the Roswell Incident.

We are featuring the top UFO historian, journalists, investigators, a scientist and a former Ministry of Defence UFO investigator from the UK.

If you are among the vast numbers of people who are filled with curiosity and questions, who embrace discussion, who strive for knowledge and who are seekers of the truth surrounding the enduring mystery of 1947, when something fell out of the sky near Roswell, you won’t want to miss this special event.
