A long-hidden diary belonging to an American intelligence officer has revived investigations into the Roswell incident - the world-famous UFO crash in Roswell, New Mexico, that took place more than 70 years ago.

When a mysterious object crashed into the desert near Roswell army airfield in July 1947, major J. Jesse Marcel, an intelligence officer, was sent to oversee the collection of the wreckage. On July 8, a press officer released a statement describing a "flying saucer crash" that many interpreted as evidence of contact with extraterrestrials. But the next day, another army official told reporters that officers found a weather balloon, not a flying saucer.

Newspaper photos showed Marcel posing with pieces of what looked like a high-altitude weather balloon with a radar reflector torn to shreds. But in the decades that followed, many speculated about the military's initial report of the "flying disk," wondering if the wreckage was perhaps more unusual than the photos suggested. Marcel's family recently discovered that he kept a diary from that period that may have contained clues about the crash, prompting a new investigation by history Channel journalists.

The government said they found a UFO — they had a press release about it

said Ben Smith, a former CIA operative and lead consultant for the History Channel.

No other government in the world said, we have a spaceship,

and the next day there was another press release that said:

never mind, it was just a weather balloon

Smith told Live Science.

Experts revisited the Roswell crash site, including aerial photography and mapping, and using multispectral imaging to detect micro-depressions in the ground that could indicate where the wreckage landed

But the central component of the new investigation is a diary that Marcel allegedly kept during the Roswell crash and which is now in the possession of his grandchildren. Decades after the event, Marcel told an interviewer that he believed the object that crashed in the New Mexico desert was of extraterrestrial origin, Time reported in 1997.

Therefore, the analysis of the diary and the translation of his mysterious language can reveal something new about the Roswell incident.

Interest in UFOs has not waned since the Roswell incident — if anything, recent evidence has only increased it.

In 2017 and 2018, US Navy pilots recorded three encounters with fast-moving UFOs (also called UAP, or unidentified aerial phenomena); the Navy officially declassified the videos in April of this year. Also in 2017, a former Pentagon official confirmed the existence of a secret unit that has been secretly investigating UFO cases (Hello to Mulder) since 2007 and which may still be active today.

... But it all starts in Roswell
