-A downed weather balloon was responsible for the crash at Roswell in 1947 as stated by General Roger Remy(8th force commander), who work as the Carswell Air Force Base(Forth Worth) on July 8, 1947
-remains sent to Army force base and identified by Warrant Officer Irving Newton, who identified it as a weather balloon used for forecasting and such.

Scope: if taken in to consideration, there are a lot of others things in the sky that people have seen and thought to be UFO but were actually balloon, possibly weather or even a regular mylar one. Warrant Officer Irving Newton, who was a weather forecaster at the army base says they use the weather balloons due to the fact that “they go much higher than the eye can see” the fact that weather balloons are not normal seen buy everyday folk just goes to show that it could have easily been mistaken for something when seen broken on the ground.
As well as things that individuals just think they have seen, though there isn't any proof to their claim ( i.e. Nessie, Big Foot,Yeti)
