ROSWELL, N.M. (KRQE) - Roswell's International UFO Museum and Research Center launched a special sightings website this week that's getting a lot of attention.
The website, roswellsightings.com, isn't just any ordinary web page. It gives people from around the world the ability to showcase their own alien encounters.
"We saw something that can't be described as anything we've ever seen before," said museum visitor Erika Shuff. "It was saucer-like. People think I'm crazy when I tell the story, so I stopped telling it."
Now Shiff has somewhere to tell her story, thanks to Roswell's UFO Museum.
"A lot of people don't want to be considered crazy. Then, they come in here and see where they saw something in their community. They see they weren't the only ones who saw this or experienced this," said UFO Museum and Research Center Executive Director Mark Briscoe.
Briscoe said the museum's website will most likely attract a new set of UFO enthusiasts.
"It's just opened up virtually the world to us," he said.
The user-friendly website manned by a company in New York allows anyone to upload photos and videos of what they believe to be UFO encounters.
"This company out of New York is just fascinated by what we do," said Briscoe, adding that the website is a collective database of research articles, scientific videos and UFO news.
He said since it's available to the public, users can make their own decision as to what is real and not real.
"We're not here to convince you one way or another," he said. "Our job is as a special collections and a facilitator of the correct information for you to make your own mind."
The website has already had people post from Argentina, Brazil and South Africa.
According to officials at the museum, program designers are working on a smartphone app so people can send in videos and photos directly to the site.
