It says "1976" on the bottom right. That's a lot of time to let go by to actually 'document history' correctly.

The final, fatal blow for the airship and Aurora crash comes from the original reporter. H.E. Hayden, a stringer for the Dallas Morning News, who claimed to have invented the story in a vain attempt to put his dying community back on the map. He hoped to draw attention, and people, to Aurora, Texas.

He was successful.

According to Brian Dunning's analysis, there is zero evidence of a crash to begin with, thus making the claim of a dead alien a bit dubious.

The Alien Buried in Texas

Some believe a space alien is buried in a rural cemetery in Aurora, Texas.

All the evidence points to the story being nothing more than Haydon and Proctor's contribution to a running joke that swept Texas one spring, a long time ago. The other evidence we'd expect to exist if the story were true — the "several tons" of wreckage, the papers written in hieroglyphics, reports of the funeral taking place, records of T. J. Weems actually being an Army officer — conspicuously do not exist. What does exist is a small town, unimportant to all but those who live there, that's exactly as we'd expect it to be if no aliens ever crashed into Proctor's apocryphal windmill and cost him his flower garden.

So if it is a historical marker that says the "Truth" about this particular claim, then according to the thread title, the crash was legend, not fact yes?

In other words, a story. Not sure what has changed here?

If you only read, and believe, the legend, then maybe..... But if you also read the effective DEBUNKING, then not so much.

Its clear that it was a fabulation.

I don't think we needed to see 45 seconds of video footage of a sign when a photo of it would have accomplished the same task much simpler.

During the late 1800s there were reports from various parts of the country about cigar shaped ufos. The reporter was just capitalizing on the

stories of the airships as they were known. They made it up, to get tourists or others to the town. It didn't have any mineral wells like the towns of Mineral Wells, Sutherland Springs,Wizard Wells ,Glen Rose and others. Taking the waters was a popular thing to do then. Even if someone came to Hot Wells in San Antonio they could take the baths and visit the Alamo and spanish missions or do other things around town.

Aurora had little to offer.They hoped to intice people to visit or live there.So the whole space ship crash story was a lie.

That story was never very convincing. As if any of them are.
