Hall of Extraterrestrials

Although mankind has always seen strange objects in the sky, the modern wave of Unidentified Flying Objects (UFOs) began in 1947 with reports of "flying discs." One of these crashed at Roswell, New Mexico, in that year, but was later shown to have been a secret research balloon. Investigation frequently converts UFOs to IFOs when the unidentified objects are identified as meteors, balloons, secret aircraft, and other phenomena.
