Roswell isn’t the only New Mexico town famous for UFO’s. One year after the incident in southern New Mexico, the northern New Mexico town reportedly witnessed its own out-of-this-world occurrence. 

The legend purports that a nearly 100 foot saucer crashed, containing 16 alien bodies. The remains were recovered by the US military, possibly taken to Hangar 18 on Wright-Patterson AFB. 

The incident was reportedly debunked in the 1950’s as a hoax, but strange stories continue to abound, including the Hottel Memo, which alleged a UFO crash in our state. The memo never actually mentions Aztec by name.

Dozens of books have been written about the incident -both for and against its validity- continuing a long-running quest for the truth of what really happened.
