Google is celebrating the 66th anniversary of the Roswell UFO incident with one of its famed Google doodles. The search engine's home page has been transformed into an interactive alien game commemorating the UFO sighting.

The interactive Google doodle is actually a scavenger-hunt like game in which the alien crash-lands it's UFO and then searches the Roswell area for the three missing pieces. The objective of the animated alien doodle is to discover the correct path for the alien so it can retrieve its spacecraft and leave Earth.

While simply clicking your mouse, users can solve riddles and turn the everyday farm objects in the video into helpful tools for the seemingly friendly alien. After solving the animated game and finding all of the UFO pieces, Google shows a newspaper-like headline from Google's Daily Record, which reads, "Flying saucer spotted in Roswell region". A click on this fake news headline will display actual search results of the Roswell UFO incident.

The Roswell UFO incident took place 66 years again in the United States. On July 7, 1947 an airborne object crash-landed on a ranch near Roswell, New Mexico. While the US government attributed the crash to a military surveillance balloon, most believe that this story is in fact a cover-up for the real story.

The most famous explanation of what occurred is that the object was UFO upon which aliens were onboard. The US military still possess the objects and materials recovered near Roswell, although they insists the debris is from the crash of an experimental high-altitude surveillance balloon from a then a classified program named "Project Mogul."

In great contrast to the military statements, the incident was reported in the "The Roswell Daily Record" newspaper with the headline "RAAF Captures Flying Saucer On Ranch in Roswell Region," RAAF stands for Roswell Army Air Field. The story announced the "capture" of a UFO, due to this information many maintain that an alien craft was found, its occupants were captured, and that the military engaged in a massive cover-up.
