Weekend tip: Anniversary of the Rosewell, N.M., UFO
Friday is the anniversary of the report that a UFO crash-landed in Roswell, N.M. While there’s no hard evidence of alien life to celebrate, you can still have some fun watching alien-themed movies at home like “Independence Day,” or go out and see “Cowboys and Aliens” in theaters (scroll down to watch the movie trailer).
