It seems when it comes to UFOs coming down, the desert is the favorite place to crash land. And in 2008, in the small Mojave Desert town of Needles, California, we have an incident that contains all the elements of your classic “crashed UFO” story – a mysterious object that falls from the sky, black helicopters allegedly from Area 51 and of course, those mavens of mischief – the infamous Men In Black….

Now, to be sure, many serious researchers and authors have studied this case, and it definitely makes one wonder … but what actually fell from the skies that night? And WHO was behind it?
Some Mojave desert mysteries are more urban legend than fact, but this one is a truly puzzling bit of flying saucer or UFO crash lore – something DID come down, there are enough witnesses and television news casts to attest to that – but what?
Did a UFO crash in the Badwater area of Death Valley in the summer of 1949? Two prospectors swore that not only did a “flying saucer” crash near their mine, they also encountered the Alien pilots!
Now I suppose you would automatically think of the Roswell “incident”, but in this case, there is also actual documentation in the form of a sworn statement before the justice of the peace that the two men dictated and signed about the whole thing! What would drive otherwise sane and upstanding prospectors to rush into the nearest town and report to the authorities that they had witnessed a UFO crash, something that would surely get one branded as “nuts”. Back in those days, there wasn’t much money to be made with such claims.
So what drove them?
And what ACTUALLY did they say transpired? See for yourself in this favorite Mojave Mysteries episode-
