Government declassifies real-life X-Files

Want to know what the classified government documents say about the alleged alien crash in Roswell, New Mexico in 1947? The documents have been declassified and are in the FBI’s new online “vault.” So what do they say?

Not much, according to ABC.

 

At least one document will disappoint those who believe a spaceship landed at Roswell, N.M., probably the most famous UFO conspiracy theory.

The document from 1947, with the word “Roswell” handwritten across the top, says that a “flying disc” was recovered near Roswell, N.M.

"The disc is hexagonal in shape and was suspended from a balloon by cable," the document said. "The object found resembles a high-altitude weather balloon with a radar reflector."

This will surely quell the conspiracy theories surrounding the infamous Roswell incident.*

However, there is another more interesting encounter in New Mexico, according to ABC’s review of the Vault.

In one report from March 1950, Guy Hottel, a special agent with the FBI, said he received information from an Air Force investigator about flying saucers found in New Mexico.

"They were described as being circular in shape with raised centers, approximately 50-feet in diameter," he wrote. "Each one was occupied by three bodies of human shape but only 3 feet tall, dressed in a metallic cloth of a very fine texture. Each body was bandaged in a manner very similar to the blackout suits used by speed flyers and test pilots."

Anyway, enjoy people who believe that aliens have nothing better to do than visit Earth and fly around mysteriously.
