Mystery: It was a Dark and Stormy Night…

Roswell Incident (July 2, 1947)

The History Channel has a new take on this (by now) very old, and very debunked, episode in UFO history. Part I was shown last night, and I listened very carefully for any ‘different’ clues.

Most stories about this crash site and the events that followed have focused on there being a thunderstorm that night. But which night?

William Brazel, a foreman working on the J.B. Foster ranch, noticed clusters of debris approximately 30 miles (50 km) north of Roswell, New Mexico. This date—or “about three weeks” before July 8—appeared in later stories featuring Brazel, but the initial press release from the Roswell Army Air Field (RAAF) said the find was “sometime last week”, suggesting Brazel found the debris in early July. Brazel told the Roswell Daily Record that he and his son saw a “large area of bright wreckage made up of rubber strips, tinfoil, a rather tough paper and sticks.” He paid little attention to it but returned later with his wife and daughter to gather up some of the debris. Some accounts have described Brazel as having gathered some of the material earlier, rolling it together and stashing it under some brush.


July 2nd was a Wednesday. I’m choosing that date because Brazel was responsible for running the farm during the week and he didn’t report his discovery until on or after the weekend.

The next day, Brazel heard reports about “flying discs” and wondered if that was what he had picked up. On July 7, Brazel went to see Sheriff Wilcox and “whispered kinda confidential like” that he may have found a flying disc. Another account quotes Wilcox as saying Brazel reported the object on July 6.

Wilcox called RAAF Major Jesse Marcel, and Marcel brought Lt Colonel Sheridan Cavitt and Master Sergeant Bill Rickett to the ranch where more pieces were picked up. “[We] spent a couple of hours Monday afternoon [July 7] looking for any more parts of the weather device”, said Marcel. “We found a few more patches of tinfoil and rubber.”


OK. Since all of this is speculative, I have assumed the suggested time of 11:45 pm (originally thought to be on July 4th) and raised the event chart to see what energies were in operation.

Well, what do you know!? The Moon is featured as conjunct the Midheaven and inconjunct Saturn. It is also opposite the Sun, which suggests that there was a full moon that night (although obscured by the thunderstorm clouds). Could this be a case of mass delusion?

Moon Inconjunct Saturn

This aspect usually means that your need for emotional security conflicts with your need to live with the world’s demands. Each of us needs to be accepted and loved for what we are, in order to have enough self-confidence to deal with the world. But we also have to learn to live with our own life situations in order to survive. In other words, we have to realize that we can’t have everything we want. With this aspect, these two needs are working against each other. Probably you will satisfy one of them at the expense of the other.

Saturn Inconjunct Midheaven

This aspect indicates that you very much need a positive relationship with your parents, especially your father. You should not be disciplined sternly unless you are given lots of love at the same time. Otherwise, giving and receiving love from others will be a real problem for the rest of your life. Unless you are truly supported by your family and friends, you will begin to feel lonely and isolated from others and inferior to them. Also you are likely to have very serious difficulties with authority figures, because you are afraid of how they will treat you, not expecting that anyone will ever give you the loving guidance you need. You will see all authorities only as potential threats to your freedom and as sources of pain and trouble.

Moon Conjunct Midheaven

This placement can indicate that in your career you will work with the public or large groups of people. Your profession might involve protecting and taking care of people, or you might be in advertising or public relations.

Jesse Marcel in 1947

Strangely enough, the aspect descriptions (above) seem to be discussing Jesse Marcel, the man whose journal is the focus of the History Channel’s latest offering to the world. Coincidence?

    Only now is it significant that Brazel brought some of the crash debris into a bar in Corona!
