Aztec UFO Crash Site

Site of a yearly UFO convention. Celebrates a local hoax perpetrated right after the Roswell incident. Great fun!

[Ben Gallegos, 04/16/2010]

The supposed 1948 UFO crash, 12 miles northeast of town, left several three-foot-tall humanoid bodies for the authorities to spirit away. The crash site is in Hart Canyon with nothing much to see, but every March the town hosts an annual Aztec UFO Symposium, run by a local organization to help the town library, held at the Masonic Lodge. One highlight is a guided tour out to the crash site.
