DFWA Texas Alien Encounter

Join DFWA for a An Alien Encounter, some world class gumbo and maybe even spot a Wookie along the way! Before Roswell and Area 51 there was Aurora, Texas a small town that if you blink your eyes you would miss along the highway but to those who know the story it is a big part of UFO history and the fact that the townspeople are so reluctant to capitalize on it makes it even more believable! Before the Wright Brother's first took flight there were a number of sightings of a UFO across the nation. It so happens that one of these airships is supposed to have crashed landed in the town of Aurora just outside of the DFW area, the body of the Alien Pilot buried in the local cemetery, even mentioned on the Texas Historical Marker at the gate!

Watch the video below carefully, we are going to visit the cemetery where the Alien is supposed to be buried. You will participate in your very own Alien Hunt and see if you can find the grave based on the pictures in the video. Afterward we will visit the famous GoGo Gumbo that is nationally acclaimed for its Cajun Cuisine and see if we might catch a glimpse of Peter Mayhew (known to many as Chewbacca in the Star Wars films) who now resides in the town of Boyd.

If there is time after dinner we may return to the Meetup Location (Wendy's) where we will assemble and then go for a night hike on the nearby Cross Timbers Trail in search of UFO's!
