Hero: Roswell UFO Crash Site

The truth is out there.

Headlines In the summer of 1947, claimed a Flying Saucer crashed in the New Mexico desert. The story spawned an entire industry and put Roswell on the map. This skip site is said to have been the first impact location for the saucer before it bounced and landed a distance away on private land.

Traveling to the site is easy. The dirt T-West Road connects to this mildly bumpy dirt road. The site is just a hole in the ground that looks like something impacted there. Feel free to walk around and check it out since this is BLM land. However, you're reminded not to take anything.

The International UFO Museum in Roswell has more information on the alleged crash site, including detailed stories and evidence found at the site.
