In fact eye witness accounts had been reported in 31 different states, all within a week’s time.

The Army Air Force here Tuesday announced a flying disk had been found on a ranch near Roswell, and is in Army possession. Lt. Warren Haught, public information officer of the Roswell Army, Air Field, announced the find had been made “sometime last week.”
“It was inspected and subsequently loaned, by Maj. Jesse A. Marcel, of the 509th Bomb Group intelligence office at Roswell, “to higher headquarters.”
“The Army gave no other details.”
It wasn’t until weeks later, that the military began trying to debunk all of the sightings which had been reported nationwide. Government agencies began claiming the sightings were everything from weather balloons to reflections of light which were producing an optical illusion. Those who witnessed the actual sightings however, were not so easily persuaded by the government’s frivolous explanations.

He asserted that the National Aeronautics and Space Administration suppressed the UFO incidents for fear of panic. “

“He said the Apollo 12 incident, which he is still investigating, was disclosed by a member of the space team whom he declined to identify. “
