The day the Roswell UFO incident was published – level 2


One morning in July 1947, a farmer who worked on the ranch in New Mexico, US, came to a place that looked like a crash site. It was a big area with many pieces of aluminum and rubber.

The farmer went to the near town of Roswell. He told the local sheriff that he found a flying disc. The sheriff reported this information to the army. When the soldiers arrived at the crash site, they found more parts of aluminum and rubber.

On July 8, 1947, the army said that they found a “flying disc”, that crashed on a ranch near Roswell. This information was immediately published by many newspapers.

Later that day, the army said that it was the crash of a weather balloon. However, many people didn’t believe this explanation. To this day, some people think that it was a real UFO crash.

Difficult words: site (a place where something important happened), rubber (a material similar to hard gum), publish (to write in a newspaper), however (but).

What do you think happened at the crash site in Roswell, New Mexico in July 1947?
