Happy Extraterrestrial Culture Day!

The International UFO Museum & Research Center in Roswell, New Mexico

Time to dust off your Roswell Incident conspiracy theories: today is Extraterrestrial Culture Day in New Mexico! Enacted in 2003 by the state legislature, the day is intended to “to celebrate and honor all past, present and future extraterrestrial visitors in ways to enhance relationships among all citizens of the cosmos, known and unknown.”

Only in New Mexico… (okay, maybe Nevada too!)
