Spooky Coincidence: War of the Worlds Broadcast and Roswell

For Halloween, I cued up the infamous Orson Welles -directed radio play of The War of the Worlds. I had listened to it before, but I had not noticed one detail. To my surprise, the name of the farm owner who witnessed the first Martian cylinder crash outside of Grover's Mill, New Jersey is Mr. Wilmuth (transcript).

In earlier versions of the Roswell Incident, Mr. and Mrs. Wilmot are the only eyewitnesses to the flying disc before it crashes outside of Corona, New Mexico.
