Everyone thought that the wreckage of the miniature British Roswell flying saucer was lost. But that was found in a tin box in London’s Science Museum. A huge piece of metal was found on Silpho Moor near Scarborough,North Yorkshire, in 1957 and was thought to be the “Silpho UFO”. The metal was in a disc shape with 16 inches in diameter and weighed around 22 lbs and was inscribed in hieroglyphics. This was similar to the wreckage that was found at Roswell, New Mexico in June 1947. A book was found inside the metal container when cut with 17 thin copper sheets.

The entire setup was sent to the Natural History Museum in London and a study was made on it for Roswell flying saucer. There was no evidence to conclude that the metal was from Solar System and found that the metal was not subjected to heavy temperatures when entering the atmosphere. Lord Marshal, Air Chief Marshal still believes that it is a miniature Roswell flying saucer.
Andy Roberts, former editor of UFO Brigantia magazine said that the Silpho saucer answered the Roswell incident in which the flying saucer spirited away from a ranch in New Mexico in 1947.The flying saucer was initially found by Scarborough businessman Frank Dickenson, who was driving with his friends on the outskirts of the city and found a glowing object in the sky falling to the ground. He went near it and when his friends came, it was gone. After buying the wreckage, three people opened it and found ash, glass and copper book inside.
