Exclusive: Tubi’s ‘Aliens, Abductions, and UFOs: Roswell at 75’

The story goes like this: On July 7, 1947, a rancher in Corona, New Mexico named William Ware “Mack” Brazel phoned the local sheriff with an odd tale of strange metallic pieces found on his property roughly 80 miles (130 kilometers) northwest of Roswell, New Mexico. 

Today is the 75th anniversary of that notorious event, known around the globe as the Roswell Incident, in which a supposed alien craft crash-landed in New Mexico with a crew of extraterrestrials aboard. 

After Brazel reported the alleged wreckage, officers from the nearby Roswell Army Air Field were dispatched and officially announced via a press release that they’d found a “flying disc,” a report that was later amended (opens in new tab) to identify the foil-like debris as a high-altitude spy balloon instead. Nevertheless, America’s fascination with UFOs erupted!

Despite the evidence that the wreckage was part of an operation known as Mogul (opens in new tab) designed to detect Soviet nuclear weapons tests, Ufologists and conspiracy theorists have maintained over the decades that this explanation was a cover-up, and the material was actually a real spaceship (albeit a very tiny one!) from another world.
