ROSWELL, N.M. (AP) – A 1947 incident in Roswell that the military attributed to a weather balloon is the focus of a two-day event.
The Roswell Daily Record has been covering the mystery since the beginning and will host its first gathering of experts from July 1-2.
Publisher Barbara Beck said her grandfather Thomas Shearman owned the newspaper in 1947. She said the Daily Record was an important factor in the famous incident.
The event will feature experts on research into unidentified flying objects.
Among them will be writer Lee Speigel, who used to do UFO reports for NBC Radio. He will present three interviews with people he spoke to about the Roswell incident in 1980.
Tickets to the Roswell Incident are available at the event or online.
The event will be broadcast online.
