Ancient Aliens: Secrets of the Roswell Rock (Season 9) | History

NARRATOR: Washington,
DC, May, 2014, NASA researchers in conjunction
with CETI scientists publish a manual
enlisting archaeologists and anthropologists
in the search for evidence of
extraterrestrial communication. The 330 page document, entitled
“Archeology, Anthropology and Interstellar
Communication,” details means and methods beyond
binary code and radio signals that scientists should consider
as potential communication from extraterrestrials. Singled out in the document
are rock art and carvings, including the
Neolithic petroglyphs of Northumberland, England. Although the document does
not directly attribute the art to extraterrestrials,
it does propose the possibility that
it could be tied to otherworldly communication. Roswell, New Mexico,
September 4, 2004, while tracking
deer in the desert just 11 miles from the
famous Roswell crash site, Robert Ridge came
across an object sticking out of the sand, a
small, triangular shaped rock that is completely
uniform in color and has a circular
design on top of it that isn’t etched into the rock
but actually protrudes from it. ROBERT RIDGE: I thought
it was really cool when I first picked it up,
then got into the truck, brushed it off. And then I was like,
you know, in awe. NARRATOR: The Roswell Rock,
as it has come to me known, measures roughly 1 and 1/2
inches thick by two inches wide. Meticulously etched out of the
face of the triangular stone are circles and crescents. Robert Ridge is convinced
that this symbol is meant to convey a message. And after studying
the rock he discovered an uncanny correlation
between the symbols and the magnetism of the stone. ROBERT RIDGE: We found the
rock has magnetic properties. A friend of mine kept
hounding me about it. And he finally brought
a magnet of his own and said, here, do this. So we did. And we found out that it has– it’s pretty cool. NARRATOR: But with all
the strange qualities that the Roswell Rock possesses,
what researchers find most fascinating is that the design
protruding from its surface has also been found in England,
nearly 5,000 miles away. DAVID WILCOCK: The pattern
of the sun and moon inside a circle that
we see on the rock is precisely the
same as what we see in a crop circle
formation dating to 1996 in southern England. NARRATOR: The crop circle
appeared eight years before Robert Ridge discovered
the Roswell Rock, a fact that has led some to suggest the
rock is simply a man made copy. Ancient astronaut
theorists also contend that if someone had
made the rock as a hoax, it’s unlikely they
would have left it half buried in the
middle of the desert, where it may never be found. But what has truly convinced
Robert, and many others, that the rock is not
a made fabrication is a comparison that was
done under a microscope between the Roswell Rock
and a sandblasted replica. ROBERT RIDGE: We started looking
at it under magnification. It blew me away. And I’m like, wow, what is this? It’s proven to be
everything that I thought it was so far, in my opinion. NARRATOR: One of the
first researchers to investigate the connection
between the Roswell Rock and the crop circle in England
was investigative journalist Linda Moulton Howe. She is convinced that within
the design is a message. LINDA MOULTON HOWE:
If we are dealing with advanced intelligences,
and you assume that throughout the universe,
all solar systems all galaxies, there have to be
some, we’ll call them, baselines, moons,
suns, and skies would be the common denominator. Something is trying to teach
us humans about astronomy. The moon, and the sun, and the
tracking of the symbols, this is reflecting past,
present, and future. And that comes back to
what is on that rock? Well, some people would
say that that is a date. NARRATOR: A date? But why? Could there be a message encoded
in the design on the Roswell Rock that reveals some
significant turning point that lies ahead for mankind?
