Reports of the military and scientists converging on the alleged Flying Saucer landing are part and parcel of what has become known as The Aztec Incident. Interestingly, the article in part states:
The Weafers reported their strange experience to persons, who had been in civilization, and were told that it was the much talked of meteorite. Soon university scientists arrived and set up measuring and calculating devices at the point where Mrs. Weafer first saw the strange object.
“Internationally known experts,” says Weafer, “who were present that day at our home, approached me and told me that it was no meteorite, but a guided object, probably from the military establishment of a foreign power. There seemed considerable agreement among scientists and military authorities on the point.” [Editor’s emphasis]
The Aztec Incident was/is thought to have occurred in the Spring (March) of 1948; what was publicly labeled a meteorite referenced in the a fore mentioned article occurred on October, 30 1947, approximately 5 months earlier. Were the Weafer’s witnesses to the Aztec Incident (from afar), further confirming military and scientific involvement? Was their experience a separate incident, 5 months apart, involving the military and scientists? Or was their sighting of an actual meteorite which seems to conflict with the Weafer declarations?—FW
