ROSWELL, NEW MEXICO
JULY 1947
by
Tony Weddel

 

Reports of an alien spacecraft being struck by lightning and crashing late at night in early July, 1947, near Roswell, New Mexico, were the beginnings of the most compelling event in all UFO lore.

Originally reported in the Fort Worth Star-Telegram and confirmed by military officials as authentic, the report was later refuted by the military and the crash remains were claimed to be nothing more than a weather balloon.

Renowned aviation artist Tony Weddel has depicted the moments before the crash by capturing the object as an alien spacecraft in the initial stages of its death throes.  In freefall, moments after being hit by a lightning upstroke, debris can already be seen in the slipstream.  Seconds later it would careen off the desert floor on the way to its final resting place.  Shedding debris from a fatal wound, its struggle for survival and the lives of seven aliens purportedly ended 40 miles later when it slammed into the wall of an arroyo.  The unusual appearance of the UFO is based on various eyewitness accounts and other sources.

This superlative oil painting is available as a quality 20 x 26 inch lithographic art poster on 80 pound paper and is suitable for framing.  Priced at a most reasonable $19.95 plus $10.00 ($15.00 foreign) shipping and handling, the poster is shipped in a sturdy mailing tube for maximum protection. 

Of particular note is the fact that this is the last painting by Tony Weddel that was offered for sale as a quality print.  If you're collecting Weddel art, this is a must.
