On this  day in 1947, a United States Army Air Forces balloon crashed at a ranch near Roswell, New Mexico. Following wide initial interest in the crashed "flying disc", the US military stated that it was merely a conventional weather balloon. Interest subsequently waned until the late 1970s, when Ufologists began
promoting a variety of increasingly elaborate
conspiracy theories, claiming
that one or more alien spacecraft had crash-landed and that the
extraterrestrial occupants had been recovered by the military, which then engaged in a cover-
up
.

In the 1990s, the US military published two reports disclosing the true nature
of the crashed object: a nuclear test surveillance balloon from
Project Mogul.
