Forget about Roswell, 1947.
Forget about Phoenix, 1997.
Sure, those were undoubtedly very important events in the annals of UFO sightings history.
But when it comes to the most amazing sightings ever recorded in the U.S., nothing can even come close to what transpired over the skies of Farmington, New Mexico in 1950.

The most spectacular mass appearance of UFOs in U.S. history took place over the skies of Farmington, New Mexico in March of 1950.
It happened for three consecutive days.
The so-called 1997 Phoenix sightings pale in comparison to what happened in the town, not too far from the Four Corners area.

Anywhere from around 200 to 400 disc-shaped, metallic, silver-colored objects were seen in the sky, performing all kinds of maneuvers, making all kinds of formations and simply giving incredible flight show in the sky.

It all began at around noon-time on March 15, 1950 and lasted for about two hours.
For three consecutive days, hundreds of astonished citizens of this town witnessed the most spectacular daytime mass UFO sightings ever recorded.
And it all took place during broad daylight, usually from around noon, lasting for about two hours.

The front page headline of Farmington Daily Times of March 18, documented the amazing sightings: HUGE SAUCER ARMADA JOLTS FARMINGTON.

For some reason or other, this incident seemed to have been hushed up quickly.
A few years ago I was fortunate enough to visit Farmington and was able to interview an elderly gentleman who was one of hundreds of witnesses to this spectacular event. He confirmed to me practically all the aspects of that incident as was reported in Farming Daily Times news article.
I visited the Farmington Senior Center to find some witnesses. Their number is rapidly diminishing.

According to some townsfolk, government agents came to town quickly after the incident, discouraging people to talk about the incident for national security reasons (the Cold War had gripped the psyche of the American people by 1950 and the people were quite receptive and cooperative with whatever the government had told them) and may even have bought up all the editions of the newspapers of March 18, 1950:

In the following article, one can still read the microfisched headline of Farmington Daily Times of March 18, 1950:

I would like to locate and interview some people still alive who witnessed the Armada (well, I wouldn't want to interview the ones who are not alive, obviously). Does anyone know of someone still around who saw this?
