From the UFO Files

So, in case you've been out of the loop for awhile, the Roswell crash consists of several competing theories. The most notable is that an alien space ship, shaped like a saucer in some accounts, broke up over New Mexico, crashing in two locations. Some have this saucer split open and aliens laying about the desert, others the remnants of a saucer. 

Whatever the case, the US Army Aircorps, after first announcing they had found a saucer, then recanted and said it was nothing more than a weather balloon. The confirmed this later, in 1995, saying it was Balloon 4 from the top secret Project Mogul flight. 

So was it a saucer, or a balloon?

Well in order to taunt everyone, NASA, decided to design a saucer shaped craft, attach it to a helium balloon and send it up into space . . . they say to test a vehicle for possible landing on Mars. 

The test ended when one of the devices parachutes failed to open and the saucer  . . . you guessed it . . . crashed.

Of course it did so in the Pacific, how awesome would it have been, if it had crashed in New Mexico!
