The Real Story Behind The 1897 Aurora Incident: When A UFO Destroyed A Windmill

Judge Proctor’s Windmill
A news report that ran in the April 17, 1897, edition of a Dallas newspaper claimed that in the early morning of April 15, a strange flying craft plummeted to earth, striking the windmill on Judge J.S. Proctor’s property before breaking away and hitting the ground, destroying the Judge’s flower garden. This occurred about six years before the Wright Brothers flew the first airplane at Kitty Hawk so the crash could not have come from an airplane. But what was found in the wreckage was even more astonishing.
The Wreckage was Unlike Anything They had Seen Before
The debris from the crashed spacecraft was made of a strange metal that was unfamiliar to the people of Aurora. It was described as looking like a blend of silver and aluminum, but much heavier. In the spacecraft, and on the pilot’s person, the townspeople found paper-like artifacts with hieroglyphic-like writing on them.
