Polling Roswell

Well, it's interesting to see the results of my poll regarding what the readers of this blog think really happened on the Foster Ranch, Lincoln County, New Mexico in July 1947.

Of the 103 people who voted, 60 were of the opinion that an alien spacecraft plummeted to earth; precisely 1 thought it was a weather-balloon; 12 concluded it was a Mogul balloon; and 30 believed it was a classified device of the military.

Of course, it's incredibly difficult to gauge anything definitive from a poll, and I will be the first to admit that some of the votes in favor of a secret military vehicle having crashed may have been prompted by the simple fact that people who read this blog may be more inclined to share my views than those who check out far more ET-oriented websites and blogs on Roswell.

But, I do find it interesting that while approximately 60 percent of people were of the opinion that aliens met their deaths outside of Roswell, a fairly significant, near-40 percent, held very different views...
