The Aztec UFO Incident

simulated view of UFO on Hart Canyon Mesa

Early morning March 25, 1948, the high desert of Northwest New Mexico, a rancher leaves his house to let his goats out of the corral. There is a loud noise that draws his eyes to the sky where he sees a silver flying saucer wobbling as if in distress. The disc scrapes along the face of a rock cliff causing sparks. It then heads north and comes

to rest on a mesa. 


A group of witnesses gather to examine the craft including ranchers,

oil field workers, police, a county commissioner and a preacher.  They find that the almost 100-foot craft was intact except for a hole the size of a quarter on its dome. One of the witnesses grabbed a pole from

his oil field truck and began poking inside of the craft. 

Suddenly the craft opens and reveals two slumped over dead beings. 


This is amazing enough, but there is so much more to this comprehensive study and documentation of a historical event. 

Our research includes pre-crash sightings by police and the military, witnesses, physical evidence, a total of up to16 dead beings and the scientists that worked on the craft. Follow the individuals involved in

the cover-up and the enduring impact that this incident had on their lives and all of ours.  

Now after 30 + years of research, having traveled throughout the United States visiting archives, interviewing witnesses and gathering thousands of documents, it all comes together with this book.
