Roswell's Legacy: How a Town Became UFO Central (Part 2)

RAAF Captures Flying Saucer On Ranch in Roswell
By Lee Speigel

     (July 2) -- If you like golf, nature reserves and art museums, Roswell, N.M., might be up your alley. If you also happen to like aliens, UFOs and military secrets, you've hit the mother lode this weekend.

Roswell -- population 50,000 -- is in full celebration mode, commemorating the 63rd anniversary of a reported UFO crash that, in 1947, single-handedly gave birth to the idea of government secrecy and cover-up.

That's no small feat for a small town.

"I believe that there was an event that happened in 1947. I haven't seen it myself, but I certainly believe that there are extraterrestrial beings of some type in the universe," said Roswell Mayor Del Jurney.
