By KOAT.comROSWELL, N.M. -- UFO sightings are rare, but not uncommon in New Mexico. On Monday night, several Action 7 News viewers reported an alleged flying saucer on the northwest side of Roswell.
Roswell resident and owner of the Pasta Cafe Andre Buonaiuto said he could confirm the sighting.
"We walked outside, my wife and I, we noticed a glow in the sky," said Buonaiuto.
He said it was the first time he had seen anything remotely resembling an extraterrestrial.
The sightings are big business for Roswell. Richard Hesse owns a UFO novelty store just off Main Street. He said the tourist town has seen a record number of visitors in recent years for the annual UFO Festival.
Monday's incidents are among those that keep the buzz brewing in Roswell.
The buzz that has city leaders working on a plan to build a new $25 million UFO museum. The new museum is expected to open in three years.
