Berkshire Eagle Online - Expert explores UFO legend

Berkshire Eagle Online - Expert explores UFO legend:

"PITTSFIELD — What was it, exactly, that crash-landed in the desert near Roswell, N.M. in July 1947?
A weather balloon? A test aircraft? A UFO?
Local astronomer and archaeologist Woody Printz explored those questions in a lecture at the EPOCH Assisted Living Center last night.
'At the time, I wasn't a believer (in UFOs),' said Printz, who was studying archaeology at New Mexico Highlands University when the incident happened. 'But for every long-standing myth or legend, there is a grain of truth somewhere.'
During his talk, 'The Roswell Incident: Fact or Fiction?,' the Richmond resident sought to focus on facts, steering away from the sort of kitsch that inevitably is associated with anything alien- and conspiracy-related.
'That's the question'
'I'm not going to give you any off-the-wall experiences and thoughts,' Printz told the 25 people in the audience. 'But it is no secret to me that there is life beyond us. But is it visiting us? That's the question.'"
