Legend has it that a slow moving space ship crashed into a Texas windmill on April 17 1897, exploding into thousands of pieces.
As the debris was searched through, the body of a small alien was apparently discovered and buried in the local cemetery.
The wreck also revealed material sketched with a type of hieroglyphic never seen on Earth before.
Then years later, in 1973, a ninety-one-year-old who had been a local teenager at the time of the reported incident came forward to back up the burial story.
She said her parents had actually been to the crash site, but had not allowed her to accompany them for fear of what might be in the debris.
The supposed ‘crash’ became such a well-known story that it was transformed into a movie, “The Aurora Encounter” in 1986, starring Jack Elam.
The Berwyn Mountain Incident
Widely referred to as the “Welsh Roswell” this incident on January 23 1974 is etched into the extra-terrestrial history books.
In Berwyn Mountains in Llandrillo, North Wales, a UFO craft was believed to have smashed into the hills, scattering the remains of non-human bodies.
The area was reportedly cordoned off by the military and ‘Men In Black’ style strangers while wreckage was recovered.
The bodies were said to have been discovered by Welsh police and that the British Government covered up the event.
Many experts claim an earthquake occurred, but there were no craters to back up their opinions.
The Cando event
Spain experienced its first major alleged UFO crash on the morning of January 18 1994.
Witnesses saw a huge sparking fireball – the size of a ‘full moon’ – in the sky over their village.
Later, a 200m gouge in a nearby hillside close was found, with trees displaced down the hill.
Opinions are divided about the causes of the explosion.
Some feel the incident might have been a blast of underground gases that vented into the air after the topsoil was removed.
Local residents, however, claim it was a UFO – creating conspiracy theories all over the country about alien activity.
Coyame UFO Incident
Passed down by word of mouth, and legends of mysterious letters sent by ex-government officials, the UFO story of Coyame began on the evening of August 25 1974.
US Air Defence radar detected a UFO heading for American airspace from the Gulf of Mexico.
But moments later it collided with a small civilian airplane and disappeared from radar.
The Mexican government is alleged to have sent a team to recover the plane after hearing about the crash – with spooky consequences.
US military personnel in Texas were monitoring radio traffic when the Mexicans suggested they had also recovered a shiny, silvery disk.
But things are said to have got even weirder as they returned to the base when they all dropped dead from unknown causes.
UFO researchers believe the soldiers were exposed to a lethal biological or chemical substance emanating from the crashed craft.
They say when US satellite surveillance and jet flyovers showed that the Mexicans had died, their recovery teams went in, recovered the ship and took the object back into the States.
Height 611 UFO incident
Dalnegorsk, Primorsky Krai in the USSR, is the next setting for another mysterious story.
The inhabitants of the town noticed a reddish ball just over a hill called Height 611 at around 8 PM.
Eye-witnesses said it was about the size of a half of the moon’s disc and that it made no sound as it fell.
Others described it as a hovering ball showing lights of varying intensity.
Three days after the incident, a group of ufologists climbed the hill.
They discovered a landing patch that looked like it had been sizzled by high temperatures and was 2x2m in size.
The nearby rocks were covered with a black film and remains of a burnt tree were found.
Some of the rocks had drops of silvery metal, which were later determined to be a mystery type of lead not found in the area.
