“the highest body count claimed for any UFO crash”

This place is on private property. Listing for informational purposes only. Please do not visit without express permission from the land owner.

"Nearly six decades ago, it is claimed a UFO crashed near Ely. That's nearly the whole story. You'll find a date: August 14, 1952 and 16 bodies recovered.

That's the highest body count claimed for any UFO crash anywhere by the way. Both claims consistent on all listings, but no other details.

We first heard this story in November when we journeyed to Ely chasing the claims of fresh sightings in eastern Nevada. Out of curiousity we started looking for more.

We checked the microfilm on the Ely Times from August of 1952 in three different libraries with the same result. The issue from August 15th, when any such event would have been reported, is missing."

The mystery persists to this day.

There's not a ton to see here anymore-- depending on who you believe, either the government cleaned up the evidence, or nothing happened at all. Either way, Nevada is a state known for its UFO sightings, so definitely keep your eyes peeled for flying saucers.
