Production of community celebration
Before The X-Files. Before The Twilight Zone. And definitely before Roswell.
In 1947, UFOs appeared over Puget Sound, followed by the original Men in Black. Inspired by the true story of flying saucers, a top-secret government investigation, a deadly plane crash, a dog killed by a damaged UFO, and the first-ever reported man in black carrying threats from the government. The Maury Island Incident.
Nearly wiped from history months later by an alleged UFO crash in a conveniently secured government facility in New Mexico, we ask the question, was Roswell simply a desperate government's sleight of hand, a brilliant disinformation campaign? The MIIHS is headquartered in the Woodmont Community Club, across the Puget Sound from the historic site of one of modern history's most fantastical alleged UFO incidents. The MIIHS was co-founded by Firemaster and Chief Saucer Designer Terry Donohue, and the sighting is now celebrated annually with an annual community party, business meeting, bonfire, the "telling of the tale," and the finale (and event nickname) "Burning Saucer."
